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: 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.
Summary: I ordered this machine off amazon.com after reading the very positive reviews on-line about it. The best part was that amazon had it available for just $72 plus shipping (for a refurbished machine).
Summary: Had the bonus of picking one of these up brand new at a car boot for £25 - at that price its SUCH a bargain but I would have another one at full price in a shot! New to espresso, I have always been an Americano (black) drinker but liked it with a little less water than usual..
