Positive Product Points

Accepts various grinds, easy to load & use, interesting to look at, makes great coffee.

Negative Product Points

Repair costs, etc.  Occsionally one of our visitors volunteers (without permission) to make coffee in our absence, leaves it on too long and burns out the 'fuse' (diode?) or whatever.  Then one has to search for the replacement part or a repairman.

Detailed Commentary

I own two Europiccolos and at present both are 'burned out' and unused as a result.  Today I googled for a repairman in my area, found one in Glendale (California) and drove to the (apartment building) address shown for the alleged repairman.  Nobody knows nothing there.  The last repairman I used, a 45-minute freeway ride away, put it back together wrongly, resulting in a huge spurt of boiling water/steam issuing dangerously forth.  He'd failed to put the ball bearing on the 'correct' side of the safety spring which holds the bearing against the seat.  Luckily I was able to repair it myself.  But now both of my machines need a new diode (or fuse) and I'm returning to him at 19655 Ventura Blvd., Tarzana, California 818-774-9517.

Buying Experience

Can't recall who or where I acquired machine #2.  First machine came from an acquaintance whose present whereaboults are unknown.
