Summary: I love this Espresso maker, it fulfills everything I have been looking for! It is compact in size which suits the limited counter space and it heats very quickly to produce fantastic espresso.
Great looking, works well, needs some trick to sort it out.

Summary: At first we had some problem on getting the machine work to produce water from the coffee side. The trick is whenever it stopped flowing, release some water from the milk frosting outlet. There must be some mechanical issue there.

Summary: I had a Saeco Via Venizia that was starting to putter out on me, it was solid and heavy felt like quality parts.. I bought this.....and I returned this. This one is all plastic and water leaked out on the counter immediately after I plugged it in.
I am by no means a coffee expert but this comes the closest to having my homemade drink taste exactly like my purchase in the st

Summary: We purchased this machine approximately 9 months ago in hopes of reducing our weekly Starbucks bill. We knew that buying a machine that uses pressurization to produce the espresso was important. I had previous used a stove top Bialetti. There is no comparison.
Summary: Having owned other brands in the past that ranged from barely acceptable to pretty good (still using it every day), I feel that this product is clearly superior. Bought it for a summer home, and will be able to enjoy excellent espresso while there.
Summary: Summary: I have a deep appreciation for espresso. I was trained in the perfect shot at the Lavazza factory in Italy, yes I know their coffee is not the best, but they are solid and know their stuff. Anyway, I have owned a 15,000$ cimbale machine as well.
Summary: I've had this for a year now. The overall experience is nice. It makes great espresso and after a year the espresso is still rich. However I learned the hard way that you must NEVER let the water level get low.
Summary: Great little and cheap machine, but the coffee does not get very hot even if the machine warms up for an hour or more. Good starting unit, but now after more than 18 months it's time to look for better one.
Great machine, I was worried about all the maintenance
