Detailed Commentary

This machine was suppose to be a replacement for my 5 year old Vienna Deluxe.  After a week of experimenting with all the coffe settings and 1/3lb of coffe beams I was not able to get close to the cinamon redish crema I get from Vienna Deluxe.  It did not matter what I did, I always ended with a much bitter expresso than what I get with my old machine.  I was also dissapointed with the steaming wand, it is somewhat restrictive on the size of the container you can get below it.  So I will be returning it to my local Costco tomorrow and try something else in the near future.  In the mean time I am glad that my Vienna Deluxe still works.

Buying Experience

Costco online had the lowest price I was able to find plus another $200 off, and it costed me nothing to return it.

Three Month Followup

I returned it after 1st 2 weeks.
