Nice looking Make lots of froth Nice lcd display Lots of adjustments, if you like that Stays pretty clean inside
Negative Product Points
Did not like the expresso it made Steam wand somewhat restrictive Can't get the milk hot without creating too much froth Drip tray gets full quickly Minimum guidance on how to adjust all the different settings it has
This machine was suppose to be a replacement for my 5 year old Vienna Deluxe. After a week of experimenting with all the coffe settings and 1/3lb of coffe beams I was not able to get close to the cinamon redish crema I get from Vienna Deluxe. It did not matter what I did, I always ended with a much bitter expresso than what I get with my old machine. I was also dissapointed with the steaming wand, it is somewhat restrictive on the size of the container you can get below it. So I will be returning it to my local Costco tomorrow and try something else in the near future. In the mean time I am glad that my Vienna Deluxe still works.
Costco online had the lowest price I was able to find plus another $200 off, and it costed me nothing to return it.
