an incredible machine for someone who loves the process of pulling a shot.
Positive Product Points
The feeling of pulling a shot and being in absolute control. The incredible craftsmanship and quality. A machine that should last a very long time.
Negative Product Points
Boiler gets super hot - just have to be aware that you shouldn't touch it or brush against it. takes a lil bit of time to heat up - first shot comes out worst.
if you love the process of making espresso and really understand all the different variables that can affect how the shot is pulled beyond pressing a button this is a machine to have. Having this machine makes you develop a relationship and as you use it you begin to slowly learn new things about how espresso is affected. There is no point in purchasing this machine if you do not intend to buy a good grinder as you will not be able to pull anything that resembles an espresso shot from pre-ground beans. This is a machine for a serious coffee lovers as it can be a little fussy.
