Negative Product Points
pump a little loud, buttons could be nicer
Picked this up on sale (when on sale, starbucks knocks off a $100) for a nicely priced pump powered espresso maker. seems to run a bit quick unless you really tamp the grounds in well. plenty of water makes priming a cinch if you‘re not brewing cup after cup after cup... if you want to make the step up from the krups steam powered that‘s been in your kitchen, next time this one‘s on sale, pick it up.
