Detailed Commentary

After using a manual La Pavoni for many years, I bought the Andreja Premium hoping to achieve more consistency and a higher quality espresso shots.  I also wanted to be able to serve many people without waiting for the La Pavoni to "recharge".    The Andreja Premium has met or exceeded all of my expectations.  With a little practice, I'm pulling consistently great shots.  I have not mastered creating good micro-foam on a consistent basis, but I think this has more to do with my lack of experience with a machine like this than anything else.  The Andreja Premium has plenty of steaming power.

Buying Experience

Chris Coffee Service has been terrific to deal with.  Chris spent 15-20 minutes on the phone with me answering all my questions a few weeks before I ordered.  Mary was very helpful when I placed the order.  Once the machine arrived, I experienced a few glitches because of problems with the machine caused by shipping.  Chris and Roger (service department) helped me quickly diagnose and solve the problems.  All and all, a very positive shopping experience.

Three Month Followup

Everything is positive.

One Year Followup

I am more enthusiastic about this machine after owning it for a year.   I dread the coffee I drink when I'm out of town!  It has become easier to use and it has shown no signs of age.  I even though about packing it up and taking it with us on a Spring ski trip!  Chris Cofee Service has continued to  be a great resource, answering any questions and quckly diagnosing the only problem I've had with the machine.  I needed to relace a magnetic float in the water reservoir, and Chrs Coffee Service set the replacement part out immediately.
