Summary: While it lasted - a total 4 four month - all was good. Not the perfect coffee, but very good and I wasn't expecting much more. Then something along the water line broke and it would show the Wrench #5 error code. I will have to send it in for service, and it will be very expensive.
Summary: I've had this for two years now. It's great, as you would expect from a machine that grinds and presses fresh espressos, but here are the caveats that I don't appreciate about it: 1. High maintenance. You have quite a few cleanings; weekly, monthly, ect.
Summary: We had a manual espresso machine for 10 years, bought for $250 at Starbucks. A total workhorse. When it finally gave up we decided to treat ourselves to this expensive automatic unit. We started experiencing problems at about the 15-18 month mark (similar to Akamai22's review).
Quiet and fast super-automatic, great for the home user.

Summary: I've had this machine for 1yr, it makes a fantastic cup of coffee (I use lavazza super crema) my only complaint is that it doesn't drop the beans most of the time I need to agitate the hopper as it's grinding. I do this daily as I'm making coffee, otherwise I would rate it 5 stars
