Detailed Commentary

Enjoy this machine very much
I don't particulary like the pressurized portafilter handle, but I haven't gotten around to getting a standard one yet.  the machine seems to have trouble pushing water through if you use fine grounds and tamp along with the pressurized handle.  The machine makes nice esspresso.  We use it every morning.  I also use the pods on occasion and have acheived decent results with hose as well.  This is my first "real" esspresso machine and I am glad to have made the investment.  The extra couple hundred dollars is WELL worth it for anyone who enjoys esspresso.

Buying Experience

Can't remember who we bought it from
