Detailed Commentary

I had a Gaggia Classic for 5 years and was looking to step up to a machine that I could produced expressos on and not run of steam. I spent about 3 months researching the others and found this one to be ideal. I spoke with some local coffee houses in Australia and did not find any negative comments. I have completed a basic barista course and what a difference to my expressos. I can now make 6-10 varying coffees without any drop in pressure. I have noticed that FRESH BEANS make a big difference to the expresso and would more than recommend this machine to anyone.
I am happy to answer any queries by someone looking to purchase a La Scala.

Buying Experience

I found the distributor in Australia and maufacturer in Italy (thank you Robert) to be very helpful in answering any questions. I would highly recommend this machine.
