Perfect Machine for me but I've got to start my wife on Beta Blockers for the Caffine since she loves the results so much.
Positive Product Points
Quiet, E61 group, consistent, ... all the good with little fluff.
Negative Product Points
None really. Price is high but much lower the any comparable machine.
After years of dreaming, I finally jumped in with both feet and purchased what I felt to be the ultimate home machine. It deserves all the awards it has received. I appreciated Chris Coffee Service taking all the time they did to make sure things worked right the first time (they even pre-plumbed the machine to connect into my existing RO system). It insured a smooth installation and I was pulling shots in an hour. The Espresso is first rate and ALWAYS the same which, for me, is paramount to allow me to refine my own skills. Even my wife (a confirmed Leadite) is happy with the upgrade. The Vetrano is equiped with everything that I was looking and is fully servicable for years of expected use. I can't imagine every changing.
TOP NOTCH all the way. Don't bother with any one else. You might find a lesser price but the Purchase is just the beginning and in the long run, can be the lesser of the costs (kind of like buying a horse).
