Bottom Line: Looks great, good expresso, and has saved me a bundle(prior$15/day Starbucks habit)
Positive Product Points

great looking machine that works well consistently without problems so far.

Negative Product Points

The descaling procedure in the manual reads like it was written by a drunken sailor. It makes absolutely no sense.

Detailed Commentary

slick design and relatively quick steaming wand. Pulls a good stiff shot as long as the grind is not too fine.
I use a Starbucks grinder, and the Bodum could not handle the finer settings on the grinder. the machine is well designed and easy to use. I have no major complaints other than the descaling instructions in the manual. The latter need to be completely re-done.
Between my girlfriend and myself, we were spending close to $15/day on Starbucks, and the bodum purchased has paid for itself multiple times over. Great on weekend mornings to sit back at home and have a latte rather than having to truck off to the local coffee house.

Buying Experience

initial machine shipped had a severed electrical cord for some reason. Expresso Zone was great about paying for the return shipping and quick replcement of a new machine.
