Summary: Hello, I am Chinese customers, today just received the coffee machine, now cannot use at all. Now has two problems: 1 coffee machine after turning on the power supply has been grinding coffee beans, unable to stop. 2 cannot make coffee. I am xueminsu account when buy, my E-mail is 346955353 @qq.com.
Summary: Easy to operate. But watery poor crema. For that kind of money, was expecting thicker strong espresso. Bought several types of espresso beans, strong roast, spent money on testing and adjusting, as indicated in the manual, with no luck. Will return.
Summary: Were thought this machine was as semi- professional as our last Capresso machine, which we had for 15 years, and paid more for. I'm afraid that we were very spoiled with our previous machine and have found that this new machine requires more filling of water & coffee and you also have to empty spent...

Summary: I bought this used as a repair machine, so I've seen the inside and can speak about it's mechanical traits. I also have a Saeco Odea Go, another entry level machine, so I'll give a bit of contrast. For me, the standout feature on this machine is the fact that it has a bypass doser.

Summary: I've had it for a month now and so far it is working great. A couple of times some warning came up and I did not know what they were for. But after turning power off then on i got it working again. It makes good lattes for me. So far so good.

Summary: I second everything that was written in the previous post "plagued with problems." We have had the machine for 4 months and have all the same problems, in addition to a door that always pops open and a warning light that never goes off.
Not reliable, burnt coffee, sometimes good and sometimes not. 2-yr life span?
too much shopping, Amazon

Summary: Ours also broke after exactly 2 years. I am taking it in to a repair place to see if it is fixable, which will be at minimum $50 and a few weeks. The machine seems fine but does not suck up the water - nothing comes out. The Brera had it's good and bad days, never predictable.
1 year in, with heavy office usage, and basically no problems to report

Summary: After reading some of the other reviews here, maybe I just got lucky, but so far this machine has been great. I too bought this from WLL and haven't had a reason to try to use the warranty or get the machine serviced by their technicians. This is the first automatic espresso machine I have owned.
