Positive Product Points

For the money, ease of use, versatility and quality of output, I cannot think of a better espresso machine.  The PID is pretty easy with practice - and dials in the output temperature perfectly.

Negative Product Points

Water reservoir could be larger if not direct-plumbing.  It might make sense to have a hole above the reservoir in the top cover (with a plug) to allow easy filling with a funnel.

Detailed Commentary

Together with the Mazzer Super Jolly Electronic I get consistently great tasting shots.  The PID and dual-boilers make this a professional quality machine in an affordable and space efficient manner.  The steam wand is fantastic and my girlfriend loves the hot water wand.  The guard rails are a necessary upgrade and really should be included in the purchase price, even if the purchase price needs to be slightly adjusted.  All in all this is a great machine capable of handling sufficient output for a sizable gathering.

Buying Experience

Chris and his team are very responsive and equally patient in answering what must be very simple inquires.
