Incredible machine. Once you have the grind and the tamp down, you get perfect Espresso every shot!
Positive Product Points
Nice looking machine. Heats up fast. Repeatable performance. Great steaming capabilities.
Negative Product Points
Heavy and hard to move around the countertop if you need the space.
Buy this machine and you will not regret spending the money. We use it every day and non stop for all our guests. Combine this machine with a good bean and a good grinder (Mazer Mini is what we have) and you will not be unhappy. The machine is very easy to keep clean. The controls are simple and very easy to use.
We purchased the machine and Mazer Mini from Chris Coffee in January 2006 and has been used every single morning and sometimes at night.
After the break in pour, had the best cap ever and has not stopped peforming the same way every day. My entire family and inlaws look forward to the after dinner espresso and caps at our house.
Chris Coffee was great - had slight problem initially and they followed up via phone and solved the issue immediately.
