Bottom Line: if you've never considered a fully automatic machine before, this could be one to start with
Positive Product Points

great fully automatic machine at a very reasonable price

Negative Product Points

plastic casing - but at this price i'm not complaining.

Detailed Commentary

my 12 year old gaggia classic having finally succumbed, i was looking around for a replacement when i came across this machine for very little more money. the coffee snobs seem to prefer semi automatic machines, but i've found this one produces just as good an espresso as the classic (i don't use the steamer), with the added advantage of freshly ground beans.

the option to bypass the grinder and use ground coffee is also welcome, for the odd late night decaff.

the boiler is steel, unlike my old classic (it was the alumimium boiler which finally went), so should be easier maintenance. the brew group is easy to clean, and in fact the whole machine is easier to operate than any semi automatic.

the repeat time between espressos is also much shorter, so it's great for multiple cups. there's even a double shot programme, so you can produce 2 cups by simply pressing the button twice.

Buying Experience

i bought an ex demo model (hence the price), which arrived promptly and undamaged, in as new condition, from ebay supplier coffeecortes. they provided an excellent product and service, 12 month warranty and even ship free within europe.

Three Month Followup

no problems

One Year Followup

still producing great espresso! low maintenance, provided you follow the care instructions and keep brew head clean. has changed my life, even though local coffee roaster closed just after i bought it and now have to look further afield for beans...
