Negative Product Points
Water reservoir sometimes can be too small when making lots of shots of espresso.
My friend who lived in Seattle brought his into work and I tried it. I was sold pretty quick! This machine puts out an excellent shot of espresso. If it's good enough for U2 to have on the road, it's good enough for me! It heats up quickly. Steamer can sometimes seem a little weak but it's a small machine so you can't really expect too much from it. It does make a great latte with nice thick foam. Never used the single shot insert as it seems pretty useless. Double shots are pretty much the standard anywhere you go. I've had this machine for about 10 years and it still works as good as the first time I've used it. It's built rock solid. I highly recommend anyone looking for a quality built entry-level espresso machine to seriously look at this one. Although I don't think you'll find it at this price, it's still worth the money.
