Positive Product Points

Probably the best prosumer coffee machine around below $1000.

Negative Product Points

Took some time to get used to.

Detailed Commentary

Once tuned for right pressure (in coffee holder) and right temperature, it produces perfect coffee and espresso's.
It has a large boiler for a stable temparature. Another big plus is the famous E61 grouphead, wich ensures a constant top-quality en stable temparature coffee.
It takes some time to set the thermostat to the right temperature, but then about all the espresso "shots"  you make are as good as can be!
I have the old portafilter handles (didn't know they made new models), wich feel real nice.
The heat up time is not too long, about 10 minutes with some "cheating" is all it takes.

And ofcourse it's design is something you want to be seen in your kitchen.

Buying Experience

Great customer service from Tiramisu - La casa del cafe.
This is where I get the finest pure Arabica also.
