Summary: I was hesitant about giving 5 stars as I never do, but We love this! After living aboard we decided that we couldn't drink regular coffee in the mornings. I started looking for an espresso/cappuccino maker. I picked this one out but after reading some reviews I was hesitant.
Summary: The quality of the machine was not great but not terrible.The 1 shot timed at 6 seconds. the double shot was good at 26 seconds. The milk frother is good for someone that is not a coffee connoisseur, as in the milk falls a bit short in what you'd get by hand frothing from a wand.
Summary: Didn't buy mine here, but will pitch in. Lovely machine when it's running properly. A pig of a machine when it's not. Bought mine Nov 2013 and have replaced three double shot basket and one milk hopper. As for the latter, you need to be scrupulously clean.

Summary: We bought this espresso maker about 1 month ago and have been giving it moderate use. If you are looking for a machine that makes good quality espresso drinks for your home, this is a great option. The price is excellent, as this is comparable to machines that cost twice as much.
We haven't figured out how and or why it does it when you use the automatic mode but it is annoying. We went back to making ever

Summary: The machine seems to work very well. We use it very often throughout the day. There are times where you make an auto cup and it tastes awful. We haven't figured out how and or why it does it when you use the automatic mode but it is annoying. We went back to making everything ourselves.
