Build quality is excellent. Easy to set up and get going. Shot consistency is like nothing I have owned before. The La Spaziale vivaldi 2 is close.
Negative Product Points
Can be a little buzy
The best expresso machine I have owned. All the accolades from other users are true. The machine is well built and sits on my counter without issue. The machine is plumbed in and has worked flawlessly since it's arrival. The shot consistency is excellent. The boiler recovery is excellent along with great temperature control. Even the owners manual is not bad when navigating the programming panel. I left all of the factory defaults as recommended except brew temp and the results are great. The taste of my shots are significantly better than with my other machines!? Maybe its the stainless steel boiler and portafilters.
the buying experience from Chris's Coffee continues to be excellent. The support, the purchasing advise, delivery and any assistance needed is always an excellent experience.
