Summary: I like this as a combo unit so it takes up less space. However, the coffee pot at 10 cups is on the small side compared to my Pro-Aroma at 12. I also do not like the timer function. It is not as easy as just pressing the button to enable the timer to have coffee already brewing when I wake up in the morning. You need to go through several step walking through the entire process of setting the time for the coffee maker to turn itself on and its a badly engineered system.
Summary: I've had one for just about 13 months. the coffed side makes very good coffee, but the coffee maker is very very slow....... The espresso machine makes good espresso, but takes a long time to warm up each time you make a shot. then, you never know how much is going to come out, one shot, less, or one and a half. Also, i guess it was the espresso tank on our began to leak and we started getting much less than a shot with clear water in the drip through tray.
