Bottom Line: Excellent machine for a medium-coffee-geek who just wants to build a great latte in the morning.
Kerry Phillips (quality: 3.3) 07.16.2006 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: If you are a newcomer and want a machine thats easy to use and in the mid range of consumer brewers, this is a good product.
Annette Roper (quality: 3.8) 07.31.2006 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Performs well for the price, but the coffee produced is watery and not strong enough for my liking.
Roch Tourigny (quality: 4.0) 08.29.2006 Rating: 6.6

Amy Aranda 09.04.2006 Rating: 9.2

Jason Smith (quality: 5.3) 10.31.2006 Rating: 7.0

Bottom Line: Good expresso machine for the price, a good starter unit
Jason Mickin (quality: 3.0) 03.16.2007 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: You can work with it, but there is a better strategy to getting into espresso (grinder and fresh beans) and for a couple hundred more you can get a much better machine.
