Amy Aranda 09.04.2006 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Great machine for a beginner; good looking, good quality, simple, reliable, and makes tasty coffee treats.
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.
Ben Egger (quality: 10.0) 09.25.2010 Rating: 4.8
Bottom Line: Cheap price tag. Still works after 2 years. With minimal/cheap upgrades it is possible to make 2 drinkable capacinos with this machine.

Bottom Line: Excellent machine, steam wand has been redesigned and the picture should be updated to reflect it.

Bottom Line: Great looking machine, excellent taste, easy to use and easy to clean
Charles Gauthier (quality: 10.0) 04.21.2013 Rating: 8.6
Bottom Line: Like all sub 500 machines the Roma was designed to attract uneducated buyers.  But if you pair it with real accessories it is a fair quality first machine.  Makes a great component in a $500 system... till you upgrade.

Bottom Line: great deal, if your not a pro this will do the trick for nominal cash

D Snyder (quality: 3.0) 03.14.2008 Rating: 2.8
