Solidly built machine, well designed and easy to clean.  Removable large water tank.  Good steaming power

Negative Product Points

Noisy pump on my machine, quite small boiler that appears to be aluminum.  Pressurized Portafilter

Detailed Commentary

This is a great machine for a first time espresso machine buyer at sale or reburb prices (I paid $199).  The machine has a large good pump mechanism and, if properly bled, good steam power.  It does have a rather small boiler that appears to be aluminum, so you aren‘t able to pull a full shot without the temperature dropping.  It is very stylish and well built.  Only real big drawback is the pressurized portafilter.  Replacement plains are available, but are pricy from Saeco ($30)
