Summary: I've heard good things about the Epoca S1 , and looked forward to purchasing it. Unfortunately I've not be able to brew the first cup of coffee yet. I've been on the phone with the factory daily trying different things to get the machine going. I live on a small Island in the middle of "nowhere" , so there are no repair shops or repairmen. I've always had Rancilio coffee makers in the past , and generally they are good machines.
