Time-consuming periodic cleaning.
Love this machine. Design may not be for everyone (spacepod). The chrome is of excellent quality, buffs up beautifully. Daily use has left me pleased with its performance. Nice crema, no problems with the machine to date. (Greater than one year). I have had to clean it twice to remove any deposits and this is a time-consuming but rewarding process. The cup heater on top is wonderful, I use the double walled blown glass bodum espresso cups which compliment the machine design and the larger cups for lattes which make for layered looking drinks.
