Bottom Line: Consider this machine if in market for superauto.
Positive Product Points

Removable brewing group.  Many adjustments (temperature, dose volume, shot volume, etc)  Easy to clean and maintain.

Negative Product Points

Steaming takes a while.  Could stand a larger water reservoir.  A stainless exterior would have been nice.

Detailed Commentary

Bought this machine for those "running late" mornings.  Can have my cappa to go in around 5 minutes.  Considered a Capresso super auto, but have been disappointed by quality of past Capresso products owned.  This machine basically does it all, and does it well.  Shots are not as good as can be had with Silvia, but they are a consistent 6-7 on scale of 1-10. Brew group cleanup is a snap, drip tray and grounds box equally easy to remove and clean.   Have used for 2 years (over 900 cycles) without a single problem.

Buying Experience

Well packaged and received quickly from Whole Latte Love.
