Negative Product Points
There is no information on training my kitten Jasmina-see www.newkitty.com to make me a double expresso Cappucino at 5am when she scratches my feet to wake up-or at least turn the machine on
I have done 6months of research on making expresso drinks and reviewing all models and machines. The winner for reliability and aesthic beauty,cost-bang for buck was Rancillo Silvia. I took this machine out of the box and made myself several expresso drinks that were better then anything I had at the coffee bars I frequent. I wish I had bought this machine a year ago I would have saved 700 dollars from the inferior drinks I drank.
You need to have a quality grinder i got the rocky as a combo deal with the silvia and it looks great in my kitchen.
Guys and Gals-if you want to impress a date make the drink in front of them this will score you points on the good list!
you can't do this with the super machines!
the folks at caffe Latte love are very friendly and listened to my questions for minutes and did not rush me
