Returned this product...not a real espresso machine. This machine wasnt good to me or to my espresso experience. I bought it and I should have done my homework. I am convinced that a pressurized portafilter is anathema to any effort to make good espresso. If Breville wanted to increase a persons journey into the espresso world they would include a non pressurized filter basket. From wet pucks to clogged filters my experience wasnt a good one. ......................................... ........................................ ........................................ ........................................ ......................................... ........................................ ........................................ ........................................

Buying Experience

Williams and Sonoma were the only bright aspect of buying and returning this,they get an A+
