Bottom Line: Great automatic machine.  You'll enjoy it.
Positive Product Points

Good automatic.  It's just press a button and presto...you have espresso, cappucino, etc..  Makes consistent shots.

Negative Product Points

Costs is the big negative here.  Maybe because I'm just cheap.  But a retail price of $895, it should not only make espresso, but also cook breakfast, drive you to work.

Detailed Commentary

I really like this machine.  Nice to be able to wake up, hit a buton, and great espresso instantly.  I admit, I love showing it off.  I'm ready to invite strangers in to just run it.  It is so easy to clean.  Very user friendly.  I am no expert, but boy do I have people fooled.

Love the ability to make double shots, or longs automatically.  The milk frother is not the best, but it is sufficient.  Used for cappucino that blows the local cafe away.  I find myself have 4 or 5 beverages a day.  And that's just me.  The amount of money saved is phenominal.  I will never buy from a local cafe again.

Buying Experience

Be careful with ebay.  If it says new, and the price is way too cheap, somethings wrong.  I found out the hard way.
