Bottom Line: Cheap price tag. Still works after 2 years. With minimal/cheap upgrades it is possible to make 2 drinkable capacinos with this machine.
Charles Gauthier (quality: 10.0) 04.21.2013 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Like all sub 500 machines the Roma was designed to attract uneducated buyers.  But if you pair it with real accessories it is a fair quality first machine.  Makes a great component in a $500 system... till you upgrade.

Bottom Line: Time will have the final say, but first impression - can't go wrong with the Cafe Roma!
Marc Tischler (quality: 8.5) 07.26.2007 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: This has been a great starter machine for me at a great price.  Goodbye Starbucks.

Bottom Line: Great first machine!
Sean Sweet (quality: 8.3) 09.18.2007 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Minimal fuss/expertise results in truly great shots and lattes. Tip: froth your milk before pulling shot.
Airwon Ojay (quality: 8.0) 10.09.2007 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Works well when it is not a CassÚ Roma.
Stephen Rees (quality: 7.7) 07.26.2007 Rating: 8.2

Patrick Armstrong (quality: 7.3) 07.11.2007 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Works for me
Bj÷rn Kasper (quality: 6.5) 12.26.2008 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Excellent machine, steam wand has been redesigned and the picture should be updated to reflect it.
Jason Smith (quality: 5.3) 10.31.2006 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: This is a good machine for the casual user but should be overlooked if you want a great espresso.
David Batley (quality: 5.0) 01.21.2008 Rating: 7.6
Bottom Line: A great way to start.
Jennifer G (quality: 5.0) 05.04.2008 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Sleek and stylish, this baby performs like a dream while not taking your paycheck for a ride.
Dennis O'Brien (quality: 4.7) 07.14.2006 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Excellent machine for a medium-coffee-geek who just wants to build a great latte in the morning.
Roch Tourigny (quality: 4.0) 08.29.2006 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: save a bit more and buy something else
Jean Cayer (quality: 4.0) 03.14.2012 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Great first timer machine. I make at least 4 double shots / day. Plus I bring the machine in every party that I'm invited and make coffee for the gang :). So far so good... (1 year plus)
Larry Keyes (quality: 4.0) 10.11.2009 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: For under $300 you cannot find a better Espressor maker - no brag, just fact.
Annette Roper (quality: 3.8) 07.31.2006 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Performs well for the price, but the coffee produced is watery and not strong enough for my liking.
Marcy Pate (quality: 3.5) 03.11.2008 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: Disappointed, but hopeful
Kerry Phillips (quality: 3.3) 07.16.2006 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: If you are a newcomer and want a machine thats easy to use and in the mid range of consumer brewers, this is a good product.
