Positive Product Points

Beautiful in a solid no nonsense way, instant powerful and endless steam, fast heating and good temperature gague, lots of space on the cup warmer, simple to use.

Negative Product Points

Spent ages trying to think of one negative thing about this machine.......
I suppose it makes you drink more coffee than is really healthy - does that count?

Detailed Commentary

This is the best machine I've ever owned, it has a level of reliability you don't usually get from home machines. It heats up fast and stays hot, the pressure for the coffee is consistent and powerful and gives a perfect crema every time. The steam is amazing, touch a button - instant steam that keeps going at a constant pressure until the water runs out if you want it to making perfect machiato or cappuccino. This machine is easy to clean with no fiddly hard to reach bits, no cheap parts everything here is quality so it looks great too - Steel and blue leds not that you would care what a machine of this quality really looks like. I wasnt sure about buying a spanish machine but it beats ALL the italian consumer machines I have ever used hands down. Highly recommended!

Buying Experience

Got a good discount of a guy on ebay uk. Came next day, no problems with this.
