Positive Product Points

I have had this unit for 10 + years and have never had a problem with it other than descaling and a bad heater switched (repaired in 2 days).  Solid Metal construction, professional group and portafilter.  Excellent steam (4 cups in a single heating).

Negative Product Points

I have none

Detailed Commentary

This unit is on every day all day ... I have never seen a machine that can compare to the quality and durability of this "semi-professionl" home unit.  Holding the portafilter in your hands tells you right off the bat that this is a quality product.  I have had my machine for 10 + years and am still impressed by the heat and steam that my Brazilia Club can generate.  I hold down the heater switch for about 30-40 seconds and I generate enough steam to foam milk for 4 cups.  Espresso is produced at 190 degrees after about 10 -15 minutes of preheating.

Buying Experience

Great - traded it for a case of wine - about $200.00 US.  I have recommended this unit to others and here in Canada the Brisilia "Lady" (same quality) sells for about $600.00 US
