Simple, but created with all the right materials inside, this machine is built to last.
Positive Product Points
Copper boiler, commercial brand, fast heating, small footprint. Reliable and commercial sized porta-filter.
Negative Product Points
Removeable panels can discolour if left under sun, steamer needs to warm up due to single shared boiler. Steamer will need a large jug to collect initial bursts of water before steam is available. Awkward drip tray.
As above, great value if you can find a well-looked aftered second hand one. Ideal for making a small number of coffees.
Machine was a great space saver with a delonghi conical burr grinder and small dump box. Great for apartments and smaller kitchen sizes. Small drip tray, removable water tank is suited for a couple coffees at a time. Steamer is capable for 250ml milk, so keep the machine descaled often to maximise power. Coffee quality is good, vibrator pump works well, and with pressure release valves, you know you won't make a horrible mess afterwards. Easy to clean and maintain. Just don't use the steamer attachment.
Not a single problem with my machine for 3 years now. Used it nearly daily.
