Nice alternative to the big names-Gaggia and Rancilio at a good price.

Negative Product Points
frother attachment no 3-way valve cups sit on colder end of top
Bought on coffee geek recommendation. Western supplier for canada is Cappuccino King, who matched price from Montreal of $450 canadian. A competent machine with good looks-very understated. Only thing I would like different would be frother and 3-way solenoid. Nice small footprint to fit in any kitchen. Sloping top means cups slide to the back which is the cooler part of the top. A good "starter" machine for the serious home user. 57mm portafilter. Box includes single and double baskets and plastic tamper. Heats up quickly
Vince and Peter Izzo have been in business a long time and treat their customers right-very nice!
