Would buy this machine again in a second. I think you would have to spend a lot more money to get anything better than this.Great value.
Positive Product Points
Solid,well built,stainless body easy to keep clean. Once you get your grind,blend,roast and tamp right it makes outstanding espresso.
Negative Product Points
Machine itself has no negative features in my opinion. Unless you consider all the variables the operator has to screw up or make a great cup of coffee.
Turn on machine,wait 30 minutes to warm up unless you cheat it, grind fresh roasted coffee,load 14 grams into double basket tamp to approx. 30 lbs. hit pump switch for 20-30 seconds. Enjoy excellent espresso
