Summary: This is my 5th coffee maker and bar far the best.(rest all 'Which' recommends, and best only lasted a year!) Its simple to set up, simple to use,ridiculously easy to clean, And most importantly coffee is right every single time with an excellent crema.Choice of coffee pods only from Illy and bit pricy but worth it for consistency. Nice choice of coffee blends which can be bought direct. Finally look great on the kitchen counter as well!!
