Bottom Line: La Valentina is superb and the BEST in its class- hands down winner over ECM Giotto, Exobar, Isomac (any), Pasquini Livia, and Wega MiniNova or others at this price point!

Bottom Line: The Italians, who are passionate about their coffee refer to the four M's when making espresso.  One M is "macchine", or machine.  Consider this one seriously when making your purchase.

Bottom Line: I love La Valentina Levetta like I love my car (BMW 330ix) and for similar reasons: fantastic quality, precision engineering, gorgeous good looks, and way fun to drive!
