Of what I have seen out there nothing compares for the price. If you are ready for a great coffee experience, you will not be disappointed, but after that, nothing else will satisfy you.
Positive Product Points
Makes outstanding espressos and foams milk efficiently. It's a good piece of engineering and looks beautiful. What else is important?
Negative Product Points
Few if any: Pricey but worth it if you can afford it. It would be nice to see the water level. Takes time to heat up, so I bought a heavy duty programable timer. It is a little big, so you do need some counter space.
Never tasted better espressos than what this baby makes. I have paired it with a Rocky Rancillo grinder. Problem: now I can't drink espressos except at home... Nirvana is making espressos with your own roasted coffee. My son owns an Isomac Venus, paired with a Mazzer Mini (he got me into this mess in the 1st place) and now can't wait to exchange the Venus for the Andreja. Built like a tank, pretty as an Aston Martin. It is the centerpiece of my kitchen and the main topic of conversation. Life would never be the same w/o my Andreja...
I can't add anything more to what the other reviews have stated.
Chris Coffee is a very professional vendor. Very helpful and prompt. Would buy again from him without a 2nd thought. Chris is awesome: recently moved to a New City and when asked him about water quality for the machine, he sent me free a couple of water testing strips. Also, without a notice, and asking, he sent me a new, improved design stainless steel tray (mesh type), that not only looks better but remains cleaner... WOW
