Positive Product Points

Looks good, small footprint, consistant grind, reasonably quiet.

Negative Product Points

Static!  Probably from plastic.  Timer rather than switch.

Detailed Commentary

$175 CDN from Starbucks, included a complimentary lb of beans.  This machine has elevated my espresso skills to new hights!  Realativly consistant pours, decent crema and good taste have all come with a little experimentation on grind and tamp.  It can grind fine enough to choke my DeLonghi pump machine with a 30lb tamp.  I mean NO output!  The only thing that I'd change is a switch rather than the timer and something to remove or prevent the static charge on the ground coffee.
