Awesome, paid for itself already as I no longer ned to drink inferior coffee out in town. Recommended to all!
Positive Product Points
Good looking and nice materials. Really brightens up my kitchen. So nice i enjoy spending time cleaning it and using it. Good espresso, sometimes a little hit and miss, but good to excellent 90% of the time. Probably down to human error. Some reviews have been unfair in my experience, they don't break down and they dont take hundreds of hours to master. Just take your time and figure it out, its worth the two weeks max.
Negative Product Points
Base could be a little better made i.e. better materials so there is no flex when pulling the lever.

Pound for pound this is an excellent machine and gets lots of us ein my home, over 2500 shots in two years. Most of them excellent but the odd bad one.
Machine is very sensitive to freshness of beans, i find that 2 weeks is max age of Illy beans. I have tried Lavazza, but seems strong. Illy is sweeter and lovely colour. Segafredo appears to be one of the nicest, just the right strength, never a bad shot this way.
Bought online direct from italy, quick shipping. Poor after sales service from online retailer, they refered me to the LaPavoni importer when I advised them of a loose washer on delivery from Italy. Turned out washer is there to keep scale down.
