Summary: For those not wanting to read the long and dull version, here is a quick rundown of the pro's and con's in my humble opinion: PRO: 1. Price. This thing is a steal at around the $70 to $90 that it costs. 2. Aesthetics. Stainless steel on most of the front is a nice touch. 3. Ease of Use.
A great entry level espresso machine, "Crema" all the way!
21 July 2010
Summary: I really like this entry level espresso maker. If you want an automatic pump driven easy to use machine with moderate effort this might be the machine for you. The Look: Sleek, stainless steel and plastic parts. I was unsure how the plastic would look, but it actually blends in seamlessly.
Summary: Never have I heard so much noise from such a small machine, it vibrates away so much that the cup actually moves around. I have had to sit this on one of those rubber anti slip mats to try to quieten it down, also put one of those mats under the dispenser so the cup doesn't go on its travels, but...
Summary: Pros Great coffee Good price range Easy to maintain Great crema Cons Got to use the right cup to fit in Drips some time. But is is expected after some use. Great coffee machine once you learn the tricks.
