Detailed Commentary

This is my first machine. I got it from best-of-italy.com for 160 (usually 275 in UK)
Ive owned it for a year now and found it easy to learn on, since it is reliable and behaves consistently.
The autofrother it was supplied with was appalling, I changed it for the original steam wand and never looked back.
It is depressing to look inside - looks much less robust than you would think.
Needs a decent grinder, I struggled with a Russell Hobbs burr grinder for a few months, but it never really worked well.
With the MDF that problem is solved.
