Simple, nice design and produces great coffee with good crema.
Positive Product Points
Very simple to use and got good espresso from start - and its getting better.
Negative Product Points
No tamper - enclosed plastic spoon is suggested in manual but useless (it bends and the face is to small)
Bought the machine because it was on sale at John Lewis down from £280 to £170 (was going to get a Silvia but worried that I wouldn't use it enough to warrant £300). Like the look of the machine and its an ok size to leave on the worktop. Have been very impressed with it in use. Find I have to really tamp the coffee down hard but thereafter it produces good espresso (and not bad with pods). Steamer could be quicker but is not a real problem - takes about a minute to steam milk for two large lattes. Like it a lot.
