Jean Cayer (quality: 4.0) 03.14.2012 Rating: 8.8
Bottom Line: Great first timer machine. I make at least 4 double shots / day. Plus I bring the machine in every party that I'm invited and make coffee for the gang :). So far so good... (1 year plus)
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.
