Detailed Commentary

This is my second espresso machine and i just keep it 1 week. This is not a good machine. First its a Thermoblock technology, secondly the machine make too much weird things,hehe.

The first coffe i make just make i think 15-20ml of coffee.HAHAH damn electronic programmation.I read the manual to learn who to ajust the hole thing. The trick was easy, keep 3 second the 1cups button and release it when the coffe start to gone out. When the level of coffe are ok, re-pushed  the 1 cup button. Easy !!! So i make a try.

All seem to be ok, but at the middle of my cups. The machine stop! HAHAHAH. ok,i take a breath and make second try. Same things.(it work the next morning ,lol)

I dont know why, but the drip tray are full of water each time i make a double!trouble,trouble,trouble...

The machine make so difference weird noise, its wonderful to heard ! ;)

The only thing i love in this machine are the heavy weight portafilter and the milk foaming gadget.

Keep in mind, 280$ for a plastic machine ... burp
