Detailed Commentary

From the get go I knew I wanted a Breville.  I wanted the Die-cast one at first but cost in consideration I bought the Café Roma.  It was not hard to use even the first time in operation I got a great crema and while frothing is not hard getting milk seems to be.  I have even tried using a thermometer now I think the thermometer is off because the latte just isn’t very hot.  On the plus side it looks nice on my counter and doesn’t take up much space.  I haven’t gotten a bad Shot out of it and the coffee tastes great… So, I will continue to try new techniques until I get a hot latte and would definitely buy another.  This machine blows away the Krups I had before this.

Buying Experience

I had a great buying experience.  I walked in, I grabbed the box reg. 249.99, and I paid 205 after an employee discount and taxes.
