Tends to leak if you are not careful. Steampipe too short.
Being my first espresso machine, I have nothing to compare it with. But the shots it produces are better than I can buy them in my neighbourhood. It doesn't like to be overfilled with coffee, but apart from that, it's easy to produce good shots. It comes with a "perfect crema" device, a rubber disk to put below the filterbasket in the pf. Throw it away, it makes a peculiar coffee and it's worn out quickly anyway. The tamper is a bit too small. Looking forward to see it work together with my Solis Maestro arriving soon.
pfff, bought it from a friend, who imports it :-)

The Coffee is a nice, easy to work espresso machine. Although I tend to use my Pavoni Pro mostly, I still heat this baby up and pull some good shots every now and then.
