Customer reviewsGreat coffee for the home enthusiast and worth every effort to learn
***UPDATE I ve had this machine for a little over a year now, and everything I said in the original review below still holds. I would like to add that regular maintenance of this machine is essential to keep it in good working order. Make sure you backflush regularly, de-scale especially if you have hard water and also clean out the grinder. I neglected to clean the grinder for the first 8 months and it was a mess to disassemble and pick out all the built-up coffee oils. So just make sure you do your regular maintenance on this machine and treat it nicely, and in return you can expect a consistently delicious espresso every time.
