Bottom Line: I can't recommend this machine to anyone who is seriously interested in pulling good espresso shots.
Mario Béland (quality: 6.0) 07.05.2007 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Good flavor but probably under extracted, almost no crema.
Rob Gillette (quality: 7.3) 11.14.2007 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: With the addition of the non-pressurized baskets, this baby can make some killer expresso and it will look great while doing it.
Ray Taylor (quality: 7.5) 12.05.2008 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Don't be tempted by its low price and good looks. Possible to get a good shot if all conditions are absolutely perfect, which is like, impossible.
Michael Rankin (quality: 7.0) 06.23.2009 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: All in all, quite a good first espresso machine for the price.
Peter Chenoweth (quality: 6.0) 10.22.2007 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: For the money, an ok machine.  Great steaming and fantastic asthetics.  Make sure you have a good grinder and some patience.
Alistair Maxwell (quality: 6.0) 04.13.2008 Rating: 8.4
Bottom Line: Brilliant machine - great aesthetics and value for money, but when will they get the filter right?
