Ability to leave individual pump on all day while reserving steam pump for as needed.

No need to plumb unit in.

Temperature control.

Negative Product Points

Not as stylish as E61 group machines (personal opinion).

Detailed Commentary

Perfect espresso is what I was looking for and wanted to limit the variables of reproducible shots.. The mini is able to be set for  a particular temperature and adjusted quickly to enjoy the differing flavor profiles brought out by small temperature adjustments.  Front mounted water reservoir makes it easy to fill and does not need to disturb cups on top of the machine.  Bottomless portafilter option is a necessity to tweak your shots.  The initial learning curve is slight.  You can be up and running in a short amount of time and enjoy good results quickly.  The steaming function is also flawless with plenty of power when needed.

Buying Experience

In a word:  Perfect!
