Negative Product Points
-None, very satisfied
Edit: Well, I was looking into espresso and wanted something under $500 that produced good shots and could produce microfoam. After narrowing it down to the Gaggia Classic and Le'Lit PL041QE. I decided on the Le'lit. I'm pulling very good shots with Metropolis's Redline as well as Redbird Espresso. Beautiful pours, excellent crema, awesome taste, definitely gonna buy a bottomless portafilter. Now that i've got a handle over the steaming, i've been getting consistently good microfoam with the one hole tip. Loving it.
Overall, I'm enjoying this machine and I think it was a great machine to start out with. Back to pulling more shots!
Ordered from 1st-line. No complaints, ordering was a breeze, the package arrived 2 days after ordering with great shipping. I'll definitely buy from them again.
