Bottom Line: Good machine for espresso lovers
Positive Product Points

super look, easy to use, excellent quality of coffee deliver (with weiss distrubution for dosing) and with the one cup filter good results (i never have this quality with a one cup filter before). Quite good mlik froothing.

Negative Product Points

Cannot adjust the power of steam, stop after 40s of extraction.

Detailed Commentary

I buy this machine to change my dead Achille Gaggia (eletrical problem and water leaking), and after 1 week training i obtain better shoot than the shoots with the Achille (which was good) on 2 years.
Just one thing thinking with this machine-> the distribution method. Good for persons whose love making coffee without have more than 2 parameters (grinding and distribution) to think. For me it s the two essential thinks which i take pleasure during making my coffee.
For coffee doctors and latte art expert it is not the best machine but for coffee lovers like me it s an excellent machine.

Buying Experience

no problems

Three Month Followup

+: no mechanical problems, always easy to use, good results on espresso making.
-: milk frother not the best ever made.

Conclusion: good machine for my usage.
