Negative Product Points
short frothing wand (after removing the bigger plastic part off it).
this is a great machine , gaggia bilt it with the same parts and power as they bilt the clasic and some more older models. so it is more then capable producing great espresso shots im talking 25 sec with lots of crema . and for my expirance i can make 4 lattees without any problem . frothing one pitcher after another . i don't think you can find a machine as good for 400$ i personally had one breville 400xp before and this one is a million times better. at last i can have a dissent cap with micro foam. the only thing i have to say is that you have to buy a good tamper thats a must. and im considering changing the frothing wand to a silvia one only because i cant use a 20oz pitcher with the one that comes with the machine. but with the 12oz you get great micro foam.
