Bottom Line: Starbucks Barista, which is an Italian Saeco machine rebranded by Starbucks, is an excellent starter, with excellent build quality and consistency.
Harvey Dent 01.01.2010 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: easy to use + consistancy in taste + good quality esspresso - whatelse should one expect from an esspresso machine? machine looks neat&tiny but is very heavy, reliable and cosistant.

Chris Wyser-Pratte 03.20.2000 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: OK coffee, sometimes not hot enough. Modest steaming capacity. But it‘s not expensive and the service is great.

Bottom Line: A great first machine! Have never regretted the purchase.
Dean Deaver 04.23.2008 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: It's been an okay machine.  Average at best.  It's okay for the price, but I'm looking to upgrade now.
Joel Stevens 01.04.2006 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: Looks good, Works Great, and it is as Tough as a Tank.
Brian Rose 01.14.2006 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: For the money, I guess it will do.  But don't expect anything more than adequate espresso.
D. O. 02.16.2007 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Definitely recommended for the price. Just make sure you get a decent grinder!
Donny Raus 08.24.2005 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: It is a great machine for the beginner home barista that consistently pulls an above average shot of espresso. If possible wait for the Starbuck’s annual brewing sale (late November/middle of December). No regrets here!
Max Ekstrom 01.15.2004 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: If you are ready to tinker, it's a solid shooter.
Sean Strugnell 07.26.2003 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Good value for $$$, but shot quality is inconsistent.
J. Valenta 07.10.2003 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Great "starter" machine, best bang for $ when bought on sale. (although the competition is closing in)
