Bottom Line: The Silvia was for me a great step versus the Krups Novo. The MiniWega is a huge step in CONSISTENCY and steam power. A great machine... till now!
Mike Buettner (quality: 5.6) 10.11.2001 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: This is a great machine.  If you believe that good tools are worth the money, this is a machine for you.
Paul Hees (quality: 5.2) 05.25.2001 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Puts pro features in a stainless, home-scale chassis. Substantial & well-appointed, even in class. For the first time, I feel I have my last machine.

Bottom Line: Don't buy this elephant - it is big and impressive looking, but it doesn't perform.
Richard Teats (quality: 4.5) 08.06.2001 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: If you want the best don't settle for anything less. A truly well rounded machine in all aspects. Unfaultable.
Randy Rostie (quality: 4.5) 05.12.2003 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: This is the best espresso machine you can buy for the home short of buying a fully commercial machine for several times as much.
Chris Nahm (quality: 4.2) 11.11.2000 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: A great machine to last many years. Highly recommended.
Neil Rosen (quality: 2.2) 12.10.2000 Rating: 10.0
