Positive Product Points

This is one of those "Works right out of the box espresso machines".
Bravo. Well thought out and deployed for the new enthusiast and coffee fan!

Negative Product Points

One must insist on the non-pressurized portafilters that can be purchased for this unit or any other Solis machine. You will appreciate the benefits in short order with such a decision.

Detailed Commentary

Nowhere in the espresso world can you buy a machine with a Brass
boiler for under 300 dollars, that also includes thoughtful design,
well made components, rigid construction, easy to read manual,
and readily deployed after the minimum of preparation. The SL70
has plenty of brewing power and steam to spare. Take advantage of
a non-pressurized portafilter to get the most out of your fresh coffees.
Experience Swiss design and ingenuity that puts this unit above
and beyond the equivalent in Italian machines
