Detailed Commentary

I have had numerous years of enjoyment from this machine.

Recebtly the arm became jammed in the small holes required by this machine to build up pressure. It was a relatively easy process to find spare parts.

I have had a perfect espresso everytime with thid machine.

For the average person this is the ideal machine, if you can find it at the right price.

This machine has excllent style perfect for that stylish kitchen. It was available in black or red. At the time of looking the only products in the same price range where bean to cup machines.

Buying Experience

I tend to buy very different methods of making coffee. While I do not neccisarily look to master any particular method I look to enjoy different brewing methods. I have previously bought, French Press, Stove pot, filter and Romanian and Serbia pots.

Three Month Followup

The machine is going well. The original filterbasket became clogged and has been replaced by one with a better design.
