Perfect for making daily shots of Cuban coffee. Steaming milk for occasional guests sometimes a little dicey. After steaming, switch off and bleed pressure by opening valve before removing basket handle.
Negative Product Points
Water level in reservoir should be easier to see through the dark acrylic tank.
I found this Starbucks Barista in my condo's dumpster! Cleaned parts in dishwasher. I replaced power cord. Found Saeco SIN006 parts and user manual as PDF online. I replaced O-ring to stop steam wand valve from leaking and bought extra baskets for faster turn-around for guest shots. I need to fix the pump to be self priming. If water tank intake tube is allowed to suck air into pump; I need to take cowling apart and manually prime through intake tubing. I've had unit 3+ (?) years and use every morning and occasional PM pick me up.
