Summary: I was talked into buying this machine by a rather good salesperson, extolling it's supposed advantages over other brands costing half as much or less. The machine could never produce a satisfyingly hot espresso, and it's ability to make milky coffee drinks such as lattes and capuccinos was even worse. Barely lukewarm at best, and never a good flavour.
Summary: i made a bad decision to buy this machine thinking that being made in Switzerland and being very expensive it had to be the best, well how wrong was I! The coffee produced is barely luke warm and the milk is cooler, the hot water is not hot at all and so the drink produced is awful. the cleaning of the fiddly bits, of which there are many takes longer than necessary for such an expensive 'automatic' machine.
