Positive Product Points

Simple, Very hot, Nice looking 2 group in red and grey.

Negative Product Points

I have the semi automatic so i have to put the switch out myself. I also serve coffee to go, and the xl cups don't fit.

Detailed Commentary

Out of the box it looked like I ordered a freezer.
We placed the Atlas directly on the bar but had to wait two days for putting it in business. When finally the Atlas was connected (the first 2 days water was delivered by a hose, and drain by a bucket).
When I pulled the first shot it tasted like honey, caramel.
Wow! and it was not even fine tuned because a shot could fill a cup in 40 sec. Now it runs very stable and compared to my Sylvia It is like driving a bus instead of a mini. Like always you get a plastic tamper, a back flush blind filter and a coffee measure spoon.

Buying Experience

I bought my new Wega from my coffee producer in Italy. This one was made for the Italian bar and is a lot hotter than avarage. I ordered two grinders, but one came later.  This was to build a wonderfull relationship with my brand. And to serve it right.
