Similar Items Owned: Rancillio Silvia
Bottom Line: The best semi-commercial machine I have ever seen.
Positive Product Points

The Silvia was great, owned it for 5 years, no trouble.  Except if I wanted to make more than 2 or 3 cappuccinos at a time, and I kept the reservoir filled, and sediment resulted.  

The S-1 blows the Silvia away!  Unbelievable crema!  Endless steam for frothing.  AND, no reservoir.  A simple water hook up (with a filter) and its always ready to go!  I am now making cappucinos in the morning as well as evening.  It has enhanced our coffee experience, and compared to a single boiler machine, is in my opinion both easier to use, and produces better results.

Negative Product Points

None

Detailed Commentary

Unbelievable crema!  Endless steam for frothing.  AND, no reservoir.  A simple water hook up (with a filter) and its always ready to go!  I am now making cappucinos in the morning as well as evening.  It has enhanced our coffee experience, and compared to a single boiler machine, is in my opinion both easier to use, and produces better results.  I fire it up in the morning, and make a cappuccino for me and my wife before leaving for work.  I take mine in a travel mug.  I then turn it off, and on again when I return in the evening.  Then esspressos, cappuccinos for us and our neighbors.  Our kitchen has turned into a local coffee house for our friends, and I  never have to worry about running out of steam, or water!

Buying Experience

Chris Coffee Service is wonderful.  I was able to pick my machine up at their operation near Albany, NY while in the area.  Quite a business.  They have a display area where all the machines they sell can be TRIED!  It was great to compare the S-1 to some other machines in the same price category.  Chris Coffee has a huge warehouse with stock on the machines, as well as an on -site service department which helped me with some installation ideas.  All in all, my BEST coffe experience, and I highly recommned both the S-1 and Chris Coffee Service.
