Bottom Line: Love it!  Get one and you'll love it too.
Positive Product Points

This machine looks good and creates a nice espresso with the pods or grinds.  The espresso finishes with a nice carmel colored foam on top!  I drink lattes so this is perfect for me.  Homemade carmel macchiattos.  It's easy to use and brews fast.

Negative Product Points

Be careful! I pulled the coffee attachment off right after steaming once and it popped off spewing coffee grinds abour 3 feet.  Let it cool down after steaming and before brewing again.

Detailed Commentary

I just want to say I love it and recommend it.  I use it almost everyday sometimes 2-3 times.  This machine looks good and creates a nice espresso with the pods or grinds.  The espresso finishes with a nice carmel colored foam on top!  I drink lattes so this is perfect for me.  Homemade carmel macchiattos.  It's easy to use and brews fast.  Be careful!
