Coffee grinds sometimes stick to shower head when portafilter is removed
This machine allows me to make extraordinarily delicious espresso and steamed milk. The temperature control is perfect and easily programmed. The pre-infusion is easily programmed as well and enhances the quality of the drink. The steam production is very powerful and allows for perfect micro foam. In 6 months I've had no problems whatsoever. I buy Stumptown Headbanger beans from Turnstile Coffee in Belmar NJ and from bag to bag produce delicious espressos and cappuccinos . I'd absolutely buy the machine again and give it my highest recommendation. I'd previously owned a LeLit machine and am thrilled with the improved quality and ease of use with the Dalla Corte.
Very pleasant dealing with Joel Cohen of Absolute Espresso/Dessert. He is knowledgeable, honest and quite helpful. He has a huge amount of experience with commercial and home machines. He recommended a Compak grinder which has been perfect as well.
