Charles Gauthier (quality: 10.0)
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 looking machine, excellent taste, easy to use and easy to clean
Björn Kasper (quality: 6.5)
Bottom Line: Excellent machine, steam wand has been redesigned and the picture should be updated to reflect it.
Ben Egger (quality: 10.0)
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.
Annette Roper (quality: 3.8)
Bottom Line: Performs well for the price, but the coffee produced is watery and not strong enough for my liking.
Bottom Line: Great machine for a beginner; good looking, good quality, simple, reliable, and makes tasty coffee treats.
