Positive Product Points

Easy to use, reasonable espresso

Negative Product Points

False positives on the dredge door sensor, water resivoir too small, steamer heats slowly and doesn't run strong enough, internal grinder clogs easily

Detailed Commentary

I make latte's or caps every morning and wanted to save myself some time by getting the integrated grinder. This was well reviewed on whole latte love and so I tried this one. Biggest issue for me was that if you use the wrong kind of beans the grinder clogs easily and it's a royal pain to clean out. This was just poor design on Gaggia's part. As a side note, the "reviews" on whole latte love are not reviews at all but screened commentary. This is misleading and unfair business practice in my opinion, and I'll never spend a cent there again.

Buying Experience

Whole Latte Love site is plainly dishonest.
