Great for home use if you are looking for a HX e61 machine, nice foot print and looks good on the counter. Espresso is as good as any coffee house I have bought espresso in.
Positive Product Points
Clean nice appearance, the same insides as the Andjrea Premium at about 400 dollars cheaper. Makes a great espresso.
Negative Product Points
Needs a cooling flush, Small Resovoir, and vibe pump
I liked the machine and it is big step up from the Silvia I owned, but a big step down from the LaSpazaile S1 I owned but for the make it at home espresso enthusiest it is great machine, Tried and true E-61 group is the same as on high dollar commercial machines. If you are looking for a HX machine this is a nice one to buy. It ask me in the ratings if I would buy again, let me explain. I selected NO because I found out after owning 2 single boiler hx e61 machines that they are not what I wanted. I wanted the convience of temp controll without surfing first, I also found that I wanted a machine with a dual boiler and direct plumb, with a rotary pump, and the Anita or the Andreja did not have that. I did not say no because I did not like the machine, it is a great machine but its not the machine for me. I suggest that you read a lot before you buy any espresso machine and make sure that what you buy is what you really want this will save you a lot of upgrading in the future. I have owned several machine up and down the scale on price, and could have saved myself some money if I done some researh instead of experimenting. Anita is a great e61 single boiler vibe pumb machine and will serve you well if you decide to buy one, Id suggest the pressure stat upgrade available for 29 dollars is is a no brainer. RK
It does not get much better anywhere. Chris Coffee and his employees are alway friendly and treat you with respect. They make you feel like family and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
