Bottom Line: This machine is great for begginers as well as for pros, It produces a great coffee, capable of competing most of the coffee bars I know.
Michael Tay (quality: 7.0)

Gray Mason (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: Really like the Classic now that it's paired with a Mazzer Mini!
Dan Hyman (quality: 7.5)
Bottom Line: My rating of this machine is that it has them all beat hands down in the $500 and under price range. I have used other machines in this price range, but none were built with the quality materials or excellence of design of the Classic
