Great machine if you don't pay full retail price. Search on eBay there are plenty of them available refurbished.

Negative Product Points
I am a coffee geek freak and always convinced my Rancilio Silivia was the best home machine. Going super auto?! I am so glad I did :) I took my Silvia to work to avoid paying for Starbucks but I am seriously thinking buying another Magnifica instead. This machine delivers awesome espresso shots without having to deal with the messy cleanup. After trying several beans I decided for my taste to go with Lavazza Top Class Espresso beans. Amazing Americanos in the morning with even better double shots in the afternoon (could not ask for more) not to mention GREAT CREMA! Another major plus is to have the wife happy, just press a button and voila!
