Solid construction, looks great on counter, easy to clean, heats quickly, wonderful results all the time.
Negative Product Points
A water level indicator is the only thing I want to be different.
We travel and enjoy the wonderful espresso and coffee in Europe. Now we have it at home. This is our first machine. It does take a few minutes to learn, but makes a terrific espresso with minimum effort once you do so.
Cost of $395 was in afforable range. Instructions from supplier (Whole Latte Love) was adequate for making coffee. Reviewed Coffee Kids recipe as well.
Would definitely buy another or recommend it to a friend.
