Positive Product Points

Cheapest pump capuccino machine available in the city, but of perfectly comparable quality to those costing over twice as much. Works easily, without a glitch. Although the coffee is not perfect, it is more than enough for my present needs.

Negative Product Points

It does produce cream (contrary to the steam-based espresso maker I had before this), but not as resistent and rich as other coffee makers.

Detailed Commentary

Before this machine, I had a Mr.Coffee steam espresso maker. I wanted richer results (i.e. good cream on my coffee, better milk frothing, etc). I was willing to go for a Krupps entry-level machine, that starts at around US$270 in Mexico. I found and bought the Hamilton Beach, at ~US$110, and... Am more than happy with the results.
I cannot give a very detailed commentary on this, as I am relatively a newbie here (i.e. this is my first pump espresso machine), but... As a coffee lover, I am really satisfied with it.

Buying Experience

Viana is probably the largest and oldest (and cheapest) household items store in Mexico City. I didn't expect to find a pump espresso machine there, as it is mostly geared towards cheaper appliances, but am delighted with what I found.
