Bottom Line: Great machine but no longer made. Did Solis go under?
Positive Product Points

Makes great espresso, good steaming! I really like this machine. It's a bit complicated in the way we have to make the latte - but now that we realized it was broken that may have been the issue. I look forward to getting it back.

Negative Product Points

The pump lasted 9 months and we sent it back under warranty.

Detailed Commentary

The repair person said it would take an hour to fix. He's had the machine 3 weeks! Don't buy from espressoparts.com. We are still waiting for the machine. Not happy having to buy our latte's.
I feel like there must be a machine out there without having to take out a car sized loan that will last. I'm tired of researching espresso machines for the home. This is the 4th one in as many years - all different brands.
Each time we have to spend more money on a new machine, thinking more is supposed to be better, right? Can't afford to go for more money now.

The Solis is great - at least for the first 6 months. Didn't take long to make my drink in the morning. Why did the company go under?

Buying Experience

Easy. Bought from what WAS Barista.com, now espressoparts.com. DON'T buy from espressoparts.com if you need to have your machine serviced.  LOUSY service.
