A very usable machine which produces excellent espresso and crema yet won‘t leave you too poor to afford Superb coffee which is so important.
Positive Product Points
Easy to use, fairly quick to reach operating temp.
Makes great crema (or is that the superb coffee I use?)
Negative Product Points
Needs Larger steam capacity for those Mammoth cappuccino or lattes.
Slightly more noisy than I would like, still the result is superb espresso with wonderful, rich crema. With the exception of the undersized steam capacity, I would recommend this machine to anybody who wants excellent results with a moderate outlay of cash.
