Cheap, Wore out quickly. Not tall enough to get anything taller than a very short shot glass under the Portafilter. Steam device hard to clean.
I bought this on sale for $70 as a stopgap when my 10 year old Krupps Espresso Plus (pre Novo) wore out. I had to replace the back pressure valve in 6 months, and the machine was basically toast in 10 months of 2 cups a day. The portafilter can‘t be cleaned well, and the steam lance has a funky gadget on the end that is hard to clean. A 2 oz shot glass won‘t fit under the Filter, and neither will my double shot cups.
Note my Starbuck Barista looks like new after 12 months of the same use.
