Makes a consistent good espresso with dense crema.
Negative Product Points
$900- $1000 - a bit expensive.
This is one hell of a machine, makes an excellent consistent espresso with dense crema (I don‘t know how anyone could not like this), allows one to control the amount of coffee ground as well as control over amount of espresso (1/2 ounce to 3 ounces - anything more than this they call crema coffee - actually not to bad), its myriad of blinking lights around cleaning time can get confusing, but its built in filter and grinder are great. The steam wand could have been longer. A truly excellent machine. I make 6 cups a day. I have had no clogging problems.
