Bottom Line: Really like the Classic now that it's paired with a Mazzer Mini!
Dan Hyman (quality: 7.5) 01.28.2004 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: My rating of this machine is that it has them all beat hands down in the $500 and under price range. I have used other machines in this price range, but none were built with the quality materials or excellence of design of the Classic
