Bottom Line: If you really , really like espresso and aren‘t afraid to get your hands dirty this is the machine for you
Positive Product Points

total control over your espresso, not automatic, looks-she is beautiful, durability-will last forever few moving parts no microchips.  totally fussy requires skill to operate.

Negative Product Points

can not make espresso after espresso.  I think the fact that it takes a steep learning curve to use and that your tamping and grind must be perfect are not a negative but a positive.  Being unforgiven forces one to become better skilled at the art of pulling an espresso shot and thus making one deliver better espresso

Detailed Commentary

$350 demo unit.  It took many, many attempts to get the grind and tamp right (and with New England weather ever changing the grind must change almost daily to compensate for climate) but, it is worth it for the quality of espresso that one can make.  Get a very high end grinder and good fresh not over roasted beans and enjoy.  Read everything on the web you can and enjoy this machine for it allows you to have the MOST control of the espresso brewing process.
