Bottom Line: Excellent machine with invaluable pid temp control. Consistent, satisfying and gorgeous to look at.
Positive Product Points

Consistent, excellent variable control with pid. Heats up quickly and provides a great shot, one after the next. Looks good on the kitchen counter. As a single boiler, takes away alot of the finicky messing around you get with a sylvia at comparable prices.

Negative Product Points

Stange set up cup warmer on top of machine, angled so cups end up sliding down.

Detailed Commentary

Great with pid, consistent temp control for a single boiler. The ascaso pro with pid is the machine to buy in this price bracket. Compared to the sylvia, with the added pid, large drip tray, 58 mm portafilter in professional grouphead setup as well as gorgeous aesthestics.....makes for an excellent purchase. I am pulling phenomenal shots with many different blends and getting excellent variation in taste, consistency and mouthfeel with the pid as a control tool to experiement.

Machines comes with a double and single basket as well as one for ese pods. Feel of the machine is solid and becomes very warm very quick. Mind you, warm up of about 30 min required to get a consistent temp.
