Positive Product Points

Looks nice & well made. Not a cheaply built piece of junk like some. I get good crema & plenty of steam for the milk.

Negative Product Points

This baby continues to dribble liquid after the shot is finished. As I steam my milk the water continues to dribble out even faster? I contacted the manufacturer rep & was told that there is a little ball that may be dirty & they are sending a replacment part for me to install. I did remove the current part & clean it with no effect. I am wondering if this machine is junk.

Detailed Commentary

Got sweet clearance price of $199 from Willam Sanoma in Oklahoma. Had to pay $30 shipping + 40 for ground coffee adaptor. Pretty happy with basic preformance. I use ground coffee.
