Bottom Line: The only home machine Ive found that produces an excellent single  shot. I love it.
Positive Product Points

Heavy-duty portafilter, which, along with group head, heats  up very nicely; commercial-syle spouts deliver beautiful coda di topo.

Negative Product Points

My biggest complaint is the bush league way they attached the side pannels, which continually come loose  with the inevitable vibration.

Detailed Commentary

I replaced my beloved Faema Contessa  with  the Giotto a year and a half ago, and have not regretted it. Traded my Contessa and grinder for a Mini Mazer  grinder. Best thing about this machine is that its the first home machine Ive  found that can deliver an excellent single, which saves  significantly on the amount of coffee I burn through.
