With this compact, maintenance free machine, even the non skilled user can make the best espresso and cappucino.
Positive Product Points
Great tasting coffee. Cappucino froth is perfect. A larger amount of Cappu's can be made, thanks to the double boiler design. Very compact machine with a small footprint. Pro quality machine, very easy to use.
Negative Product Points
None so far.
It is already said by the others, this is a professional machine in a small size. In the meantime I consider it the best machine around for coffeelovers who not want to spend hours and money for servicing and finetuning good looking, but old fashioned italian classics. Compare a Harley and a BMW motorbike. Harley looks and sounds the best, BMW is the best if you want to enjoy your ride.
I have the Reneka for several years now. Without any problem at all. Temperature, crema and taste are great and very, very consistenet. It might sound strange, but my Reneka is the thing I miss the most when I am on summer holidays with the family. Even in France or Italy.
If you are a newby or simply want the best cups and cappu's, choose the Reneka. A modern design head, never to hot.
