Bottom Line: Not for the  operator that wants better than average espresso
Positive Product Points

Strong frame and quility parts

Negative Product Points

Old world technology with no Pre infusion. Brew heads get hot when not in consistent use
Can burn coffee in hands of a non Profesional

Steam quility is ok  

Better off with spending more $ to  get an Astoria Gloria only single boiler model from Astoria with Pre-infusion

Detailed Commentary

this is is an ok espresso machine, built well with good parts has old world basic technology from Italy
there are Better selections available in today's market to select from.
easy to get parts for from many Astoria distributers nation wide or Astoria in North Carolina
has been around for a number of years, It  has been a stable machine for Astoria for years, replaced by the Perlia more modern look with same  basic old technologies.

Look at Astoria sister company Waga if you want E 61 brew groups in all Wega models.
For generally less money.
