Bottom Line: One has to be interested in the "art" and "science" in order to make best use of the machine. If the review sounds like too much trouble, buy a semi-automatic machine instead.
Antonio Salles (quality: 9.5) 02.21.2012 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: Love it or hate it, that is the way of the Europiccola.
Gino Magnotta (quality: 9.5) 09.09.2007 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: A superb machine that will at first frustrate but then educate in the art and science of espresso making, and at a reasonable price.  Perserverence will eventually bring you unrivalled espresso pleasure, although be aware of its multiple shots limitations
Gail McNeill (quality: 8.5) 10.03.2009 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: Italian steel-and-chrome perfection; seven years (so far) of excellence. If you want is what it was designed for- 6oz double cappuccinos, there's no better. If not, look elsewhere.
