Summary: The best gets better. I can't believe this is already upstaged by a newer model. I'm glad it got a sort of gimbaled stream and water spout. I wish the warranty was less conspicuous on the side of the machine (a piece of tape saying do no remove).
Summary: Ahhhh just me and my Longhi in the early morning dawn. Truely a great machine and the coffee..... well for the sake of common ground it will send the "mermaid" squiring back out to sea. Fun to use and easy to clean.
Summary: Was happy with it until it suddenly stopped working. Had it for 3 years with little problems and one day the pressure pump just stopped working and stopped pushing it out. Wish there was an easy fix. Used it everyday at least once a day and sometimes more when friends were occasionally over.
Summary: I bought this product so I can drink espresso at home instead of going to the local coffee shop to enjoy it. I knew it wouldnt taste as good theirs but this just made not want to drink the coffee even if it was free.
Summary: I had read some reviews on this machine and was a little hesitant to purchase it based on some of the reviews by folks that were not able to get it to work like they wanted. After making some espresso and some cappuccino with it now, I have to say, this is a very good machine and easy to use.
Summary: I bought this machine because of the stainless steel boiler. Most cheap machines use aluminum. It's a great machine. Super easy to use...just have to let it warm up for 20 min. Once it's on, leave it on and make espresso all day.
