It is very competent espresso machine with very unique pressure monitoring ability that I have not seen anywhere else. The pressure gauge is mounted just above the puck. All that would not matter if machine did not make excellent espresso, which it does. And in extremely portable package. I had MyPressi Twist and this to my taste produced much better espresso... Top notch product and extremely, extremely well made.

Ah, Sam, too bad you had to sell the Caravel. But I totally understand the need to keep trying new toys! Enjoy =)

Ps I was pretty entertaining (and educational) to see you talk yourself into buying it! Hehehe

Hahaha!! I was cursing myself right after posting that. I swear I was genuinely trying to convince others to get the Rossa, just because I truly believe it's a good product based on my experience with Rosco Mini, and also to prevent exactly this from happened.

Amazingly enough, minutes later when I was back into my conscious mind, I found myself with a buyer for Caravel and having emailed Dennis for the PG. Ahh, such is life!  ;P


P/S: But I am not complaining ;P

Just want to drop by to say thank you to Dennis. The Rossa PG has been received well and it arrived very quickly considering it has travelled across half a globe. Communication through email was quick and pleasant. I am having a good time with the PG now. ;D
