The Anita has added a new and extremely positive dimension to the start of each day!!!
Positive Product Points
I bought the Anita from Chris Coffee and they are the best for Internet purchase and support. I have had this for a little over a year and love it. It is very easy to use and I have not had any reason to feel anything but satisfaction with my purchase.
Negative Product Points
The group flush/cool down process required for pulling shots is an extra step but it is a function of a single boiler machine in general.
Ths initial setup was very quick and easy and I have not had a single glitch in the 14 months I have been using the Anita. Heat up time is not as long as I had anticipated so I was pleased with that as well. I ordered the unit with the group digital thermometer and I am glad I did that because it takes the guesswork out of the group flush/cool down cycle. I also purchased Vario-W as the companion grinder and have been pleased with its performance. Between the two products I have consistently great espresso drinks.
Chris Coffee has extremely helpful sales and support personnel and they made the purchase a very simple and straigt forward process. I would rate them as exceptional in all aspects and look forward to buying from them again as I see the need for additional products.
