Detailed Commentary

It seems like CG defines “Prosumer” as any HX or DB machine of decent quality.  I disagree with the rating of the Alexia as “Consumer”. At the end of the day, an espresso machine by definition is a tool to make espresso not latte, foam or milk. The Alexia with the PID is the most suited for this task. The quality of the construction and components is certainly “best in class” as Chris states in his video.  I have had mine now for about a month and could not be happier.  Flip the switch, wait about 20 minutes and the machine will be at temperature, E61 head nice and hot, and ready to go.  I really enjoy being able to control the brew temperature exactly with the PID.  It has a relatively small footprint compared to other E61 machines of this quality. This is mainly because of the single boiler.  I have tested the steam function and it does work quite well and I was able to make very good micro foam the first time using Chris’ technique video.  If you love espresso… this is the ticket for you.

Buying Experience

What can you say that everyone hasn't said already. Chris' is the best.  I spent months gathering information and debating HX, DB, PID, SBDU machines. Chris spent alot of time in both email and on the phone giving me the information I needed without the sales pitch.
