Detailed Commentary

Got this one for 320$ and for me does very good cappucino and latte. Frothing is easy. Espresso is good but I think espresso lovers can‘t get exeptional ones? I drink only cappas and lattes.

Grinder is easy to adjust and after I did get fress beans and grind to right level (8 is a good starting level) the cappucino is much better than I can get in local coffee shops (tried cappa in one of them yesterday, no froth at all!!) so getting better than them was quite easy. I do think this does better job than cheap krups and philips machines and if you add a grinder you pay about the same than for vienna.

Another good thing is the no mess. I only have to whipe the frothnig rod after and done. Couple of times in week empty the waste basked and clean trip tray and full cleaning monthly. No coffee grounds around the kitchen.

This is the right machine for me and I‘m still tweaking it up to best performance. More adjustment would make it harder for me, but I think next machine for me is better saeco with more adjustments.
