Detailed Commentary

Got it for about $260, 3 years ago.  No malfunctions since.  Superb espresso compared to my once-adored Spidem.  Steaming can be anywhere from good to superb.  I don't like the way the machine twists a bit as one secures the porta-filter in place.  Not high style, but it's been very, very reliable.
