Bottom Line: A good home and small exercise machine, with no compromises in the coffee grinding.
Positive Product Points

An E61 into near the palm of your hand...Small but powerful and really the 1.0 bar in the manometer gives an excellent espresso. I use it for home and for go to resellers of coffee that haven't a coffee machine to taste the coffee, to brew a samples of the quality they interested in. Very good machine!

Negative Product Points

The grinding of the coffee and its weighting must be maniacal, otherwise if too fine the pump make an effort not good for the coffee and for the same machine, if larger you have a "brodo", but apart this it's fantastic.

Detailed Commentary

The line is very good, like a Déco coffee machine, but it's very simple in the mechanic parts. The extra affordable E 61 group never dies. I can't ask more from a coffee machine that's a good choice for the Pro and for the advanced coffee lover at a medium price. My model has an included water tank, so I'm independent from any water source, and using mineral water, combined with the small water softener into the tank, there aren't problems of hardness into my filter, and negative consequences in the coffee flavour.

Buying Experience

Buyed in Italy. Excellent assistance but I don't still need, after 6 months. Great communications, affordables.

Three Month Followup

Nothing new to note, except the continuation of the grinding problems, and a small increase in the pump noise when extracting the coffee.

One Year Followup

Nothing new to note, except the continuation of the grinding problems, and a small increase in the pump noise when extracting the coffee. The machine works well with the two-cups filter holder, and when it's very hot, turned on at least one hour before.
