at around 5 cent per brew, it sure was worth my 100$ at the time.

Small water tank
I've bought this machine because I couldn't afford a 600$+ one, I've been using it for more that two year, on some days it make 6 cappuccino. If I use the proper grind, I can even get an ok crema, in the coffee brew. The steamer is quite easy to use, just make sure you clear the water before steaming, or you will dilute your milk.
After 2 year of good service, it starting to give up on me (steam coming out of the control knob).
Now that this machine is going out on me and that I've master a bit the espresso / crema, I'm hesitating between a Rancillio Sylvia, or to win some time in the morning a Saeco Talea.
