Detailed Commentary

First lets start with what I drink! I like milk drinks but no sugar/syrup.
I started with a Krups Steam machine, Used that style for the next three years. I then wanted to step up and purchased a Breville Cafe Roma, pulled a decent shot but the steam was horrible! Returned it! Then purchased the big brother The Breville Diecast 800ESXL Same FREAKING thing Couldn't steam to save its life! I don't have deep pockets, I almost bought a La Pavoni Napolitana on ebay but waited. Then decided to try the krups because it had the option of building pressure to steam as with the breville you had to plunge the wand in the milk when it didn't have enough pressure and would then cause bad froth and loud screaming noises just like the Steam machine when it ran out of steam frothing! I am no expert but think this is a good machine for a small budget!

Buying Experience

purchased from Macy's so far so good
