Bottom Line: Great product, great brand and great price. What else can you ask for?
Positive Product Points

Good quality, good looks, good feel. It's a real espresso machine, made by a real espresso company. Has european charm, and it's easy to use once you get used to it.

Negative Product Points

The frothing thing is somewhat erratic, i.e. sometimes you have to wait a little bit for it to start pumping steam. The position of the frothing wand is awkward. The instructions suck.

Detailed Commentary

Buy this machine if you want a real espresso machine that doesn´t cost that much. I also have a Solis Maestro grinder, and in my opinion, I think they make a great couple.

The look and feel of the machine is top notch, and once you get pass the initial learning curve it's quite easy to use.

You get a commercial type portafilter (58 mm), a very accesible water tank, and an easily removable drip tray. The machine warms up pretty quickly, and basically it has you brewing espresso in no time.

On he negative side, the instructions suck, and the frothing wand is below par for this machine (poor location, jiggles too much for my taste).

Anyway, I think it's an excellent initial machine, and the price-value relationship makes it a really good buy.

Buying Experience

Aabree Coffee rules!! They shipped on time, and they are very willing to shave the price a little bit if you ask them nicely.
