Positive Product Points
Great quality/powerful home unit
Negative Product Points
Double portafilter cup has a rounded off bottom, ordered a La Marzocco cup as a replacement.
Great machine for $379. I‘m a professional Barista (own an espresso business) and wanted a quality machine for home use. This unit not as powerful as my $6000 commerical unit but for a home unit, WOW. Tamp your espresso in your portafilter tight because this machine has a dynamite pump.
Steaming milk, 30-40 seconds and 160 deg F!
