Excerpt: I am a fully trained barista and have been for 3 years so deal with top of the range industrial machines all the time. For a domestic machine this is the best i have had or used! Steam pressure is great all the time and the espresso runs through great with lovely crema. It doesnt take long in comparison to others to fully heat up!I have had no problems with it in the year i have had it.
Excerpt: I surprise myself by writing a glowing review on the day the thing has broken. I had only ever thought of it as my great new espresso machine. Neither had I realized the time that had gone by. Usage Statistics and Inadvertent Destruct-Testing I have been making an average of 11 double espressos per week. Always when I have been tired and clumsy. I have forgotten to top up the reservoir at least once every six weeks.
