Detailed Commentary

I got mine at a local warehouse club new in box for 50 bucks US. After tweaking my grinder (a Bodum Antigua) to get a finer grind, I have been able to consistently get high quality, great crema, and excellent taste from this machine. The slight dripping, due to lack of a solenoid valve, is a very minor inconvenience IMHO. It just makes it a part of my routine to clean the drip tray after every session. Not a problem in my book. With the results I get from this machine, Ill be happy to wait until it breaks down before looking toward an upgrade.
