Bottom Line: Fine machine!
Positive Product Points

The Anita so far has been remarkably reliable, and is quite high quality.  Espresso quality of course varies with bean roast, etc. - but the machine itself is very stable.

Negative Product Points

Honestly, I can't think of anything negative at this point.  The machine is not as beautiful as an Elektra, but on the other hand, I'm pretty sure it makes more reliably good espresso.

Detailed Commentary

For the price, I doubt you will find much that's better.  I'm not even sure that far more expensive machines are significantly better. I leapt upward in quality quite rapidly, as I purchased this with a Mazzer grinder, and now find that commercial espressos seem quite poor by comparison.  Bean quality is important, but the machine is pretty forgiving.  The pump isn't quiet, but it needn't run much.  I'm still not sure about long-term reliability of the machine, but I suspect it's pretty good.  I'm still learning, and I don't think that the machine itself will be an impediment.

Buying Experience

Daily Grind did a good job, shipping on time and carefully.
