Bottom Line: Get it it you‘re in love with the design.
Positive Product Points

Looks beautiful. Makes great espresso once you know the machine extremely well. Accepts pods or ground coffee. Froths very well.

Negative Product Points

No solenoid valve so repeat shots can be messy. Not user friendly for ground coffee... requires lots of practice.

Detailed Commentary

Worthwhile to those who have lots of patience and are very style conscious. Otherwise, a waste of money. I just love the way the stainless steel model looks on my counter. I have the newer version with the correct voltage... real pressure is 8 bar, per the manufacturer... slightly underpowered but makes great espresso after pulling one‘s hair out.
