Bottom Line: EXPOBARS MATCH THE ITALIAN LEVER MACHINES IN QUALITY,   BUT THE PRICE IS 100S$ CHEAPER, AND IT WILL OUTLAST THE GRANDKIDS,   MAKES PERFECT SHOTS
Positive Product Points

OUTSTANDING QUALITY,  THE SPANIARDS CAN BUILD ESPRESSO MACHINES WELL,  THE GOD SHOT IS EASY,  AS GOOD ASIT GETS ON A LEVER MACHINE,  EASY TO USE,  LOOKS  FANTASTIC ON MY COUNTER,   GREAT PRICE,  HAVE YET TO HAVE ABETTER SHOT ON 2000$ PLUS MACHINES,

Negative Product Points

NONE YET

Detailed Commentary

I DID MEGA RESEARCH,  ON LEVER MACHINES,AND THE EXPOBAR COMPANY,TALKED TO ESPRESSO MACHINE REPAIRMAN,  READ EVERY  POSSIBLE REVIEW,  B-4 I BOUGHT IT,    I TRIED SHOTS  FROM A FRIENDS ROCKET GIOTTO,  ISOMAC TEA [THIS WAS CLOSE]     AND QUICK MILL ALEXIA ,   NOPE, THE EXPOBAR WAS EVERY BIT AS GOOD   AND  THE PRICE  WAS 500$OR MORE LESS,  WITH THE CANADIAN DOLLAR BEING AT PAR NOW  THE DEALS ARE FANTASTIC,  LOTS OF STEAM  AND FAST,  THE WORKMANSHIP IS OUTSTANDING,  A GOOD FRIEND WHO I VISIT WEEKLY  HAS A ROCKET GIOTTO, AND IVE GONE OVER AND OVER HIS MACHINE,  TO TRY AND SEE WHY IT COST 775$ MORE NEW, CANT FIND IT,   ANOTHER FRIEND WHO HAS ASMALL CAFE!!  HAS THE ISOMAC  TEA,  MACHINE, SAME DEAL  $2000 PLUS,  I CANT SEE THE DIFFERANCE, A REPAIRMAN I TALKED TO  WHO SEES THE GUTS OF THESE MACHINES  DAILY TOLD ME,   MACHINES COMING OUT OF SPAIN, GENERALLY ARE BUILT AS GOOD OR BETTER, AND ARE 100S  LESS,   I DONT EVER SEE WHAT  I WOULD MOVE UP TO!!!!! [FOR HOME USE]   MY WIFES SISTER JUST GOT A NOUVA SIMONILE  OSCAR IN RED,  LOOKS  GREAT,  BUT THAT MACHINE  JUST DOES NOT COME CLOSE TO THE OLD EXPOBAR,  BUT SHE PAID 1250$ I GUESS,  VERY HANDSOME  MACHINE THOUGH.   IN MY OPINION  IF YOUR GOING UP TO A BEAUTIFUL LOOKING AND WORKING, STAINLESS STEEL  LEVER, WITH THE E61 GP HEAD,    YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THE EXPOBAR,  FORGET THE OVER PRICED ITALIAN MACHINES, [ SOME  YOU HAVE TO HAVE THAT " made in italy sticker",]     you do not have to spend $2000 plus for a good lever maqchine w the e61,  b-4 spending all that coin, try and find a expobar and use it or at least get a shot,  im lucky i owned a cafe, a alot of my friends are into the BEAN, [less alcohol and more caffine in our 50s  i guesS  im always testing  proding, questioning,   its a  very fine machine,  and you can get 1  BRAND NEW FOR $1285.00, OR SO, SHOPPING AROUND, another thing ive learned in this economy, DONT BE AFRAID TO MAKE A OFFER, NOT A STUPID ONE BUT REASONALBE,  MY SELLER CAME DOWN 55.00$    GOOD LUCK

Buying Experience

EASY ON EBAY    LOTS OF DEALERS THERE FOR OUR HOBBY  AND THEY WILL  DICKER ON THE PRICE
