Bottom Line: A great starter machine for the fun of it, but don't expect much of a caffine buzz from the end product.
Positive Product Points

A great machine to start with.

Negative Product Points

I would have perferred a 12 cup max. for the coffee maker.  You have to be real careful not to overfill because there is a little opening in the back and the water will run out.

Detailed Commentary

As for the expresso, if you are a beginner and need a place to start for value, this machine is definitely worth it.  Just be prepared to have a weeker shot than you would get from a preofessional machine.  The frothing attachment is a bit inconvenient in its location and even after several times still feels awkward to use.  The directions are easy to follow for use.  When I purchased my expresso I followed the advice from the store and not the directions found with the machine and the quality of the cup of espresso was much better.  All in all, I am happy with it, but if you are in a hurry, don't expect to get a quick cup of espresso out of this machine.

Buying Experience

I purchased from the local Linens and things.  Even though they were very helpful in letting me look at all of the machines to evaluate and compare, they didn't really know anything about the product and could help me make a final decision on which product to purchase.
