When found as a sub $100 machine, there is no better, cheaper way to introduce adequate, maybe even good espresso into your home. Not meant as a long term investment, but can train you, and makes a great gift.

I just bought it from a friend who won it in lucky draw. I primmed the machine a few times and i still get some cloudy water from the espresso but the cloudiness will disappear later (using just plain water). When I test make an espresso, it come out with a funny plastic smell (or like cockroach smell). What is wrong?
