Positive Product Points

Relatively attractive design in modern kitchen, apparently well built, easy to use controls, readily available in the UK

Negative Product Points

Autocappucino accessory, no single shot portafilter (though single shot basket included), takes a while to get all the machine up to temperature (such as cup warmer etc)

Detailed Commentary

This is my first venture into owning a pumped machine, having relied on a 3 cup stove top "espresso" for my kicks in the morning.  This appealed to me due to the price (£109UK), nice modern design, and ease of use.  Although I actually hate the autocappucino add on (I NEVER drink coffee with milk in) it is useful for easy hot chocolates etc.  Steam is quite wet when used without the accessory.  
The crema enhancer limits the amount of pressure you can tamp with - too hard and the very fine holes are blocked and a 25 second pour becomes far too short.  On the other hand, when used with a reasonably reliable coffee (at the moment I am not quite up to roasting my own!!) the coffee tastes good, so I can‘t complain.  I just don‘t know how much better it could be at home........
