Heavyweight construction, lots of steam, reliable (so far), good value, looks the biz

Negative Product Points

Slightly plasticky steam handle, water handle, tamper. Apart from that, nothing.

Detailed Commentary

I paid £175 ($280) from bestofitaly (goespresso), and the delivery was prompt; they even chucked in a free bag of (half-decent) coffee.

The machine worked well straight out the box, and has continued to give good results, ploughing through a marathon Christmas party‘s worth of coffee drinking without batting an eyelid. Very impressed, and it feels as though it could carry on for years to come. I‘m very happy so far; good froth with lots of steam, and good Crema.
