Detailed Commentary

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

Buying Experience

Vince and Peter Izzo have  been in business a long time and treat their customers right-very nice!
