Bottom Line: It's great unless you plan on steaming milk :-/
Positive Product Points

Looks great, espresso is lovely, multiple filter sizes (1, 2, ESE), comes with stainless steaming pitcher.

Negative Product Points

Worst thing about this machine is the steaming wand.

Detailed Commentary

I've tried various ways, but can't get the steam flow to swirl the milk as it's being steamed.   The handle is just in the way.  It also took a few tries to get a hang of using the settings.  This isn't the kind of machine you could use simply the first try. Sure, it's not like it's a commercial superauto, but you know.  The enclosed tamper is a poor fit for the portafilter.


I'll continue to use it until I can afford a better one. This was a bargain, and now I can see why (you'll notice I didn't pay the regular $200 CAD retail price).

Buying Experience

Vendor was fine.
