A very good machine for the price. I don't really have experience with espresso machine but this one do, like i hoped, very good espresso and milk crema. A very good espresso taste, not that strong for a biginner. I'm from France than please excuse my poor english.
Negative Product Points
I don't really know, i have use it for only one week. But it needs a long time to be ready to make an espresso, about 6 or 7 minutes. It's little bit hard to use, and make your kitchen dirty with a lot of coffee, but may be it's normal for an classic espresso machine (not nespresso or another capsule machine). The negatives points are not that important.
I don't have any espresso experience, as a biginner i was looking for a cheap and good espresso machine. It's this website that convaince me to buy this gaggia, that's why i writh this rating. I think that any beginner who wants a first espresso machine, looking to the price, can buy a gaggia evolution whitout worring. I bought it in a italian website, because here in France it's impossible to find it at this price. It's look not that bad, but i think that another machines are prettier. I can do a lot of espresso, one after one, wihtout problem. If you have a good price opportunity, just buy, you will not regret.
Wihtout any problem, at the www.epto.it, for a very good price wich does not exist in France.
