Negative Product Points

Only that the water container could have held more water.

Detailed Commentary

Arrived here at my office, and immediately read through the directions and watched the accompanying DVD.  Went to my local Randall's grocery store, filled up three bags of Java Delight beans from the shute, and ground the  beans there starting at the very lowest setting (Turkish grind) and worked my up.  After about an hour, I pulled the best shot I've ever had!

Lotsa crema, thick coffee, tasted awesome with 2 teaspoons of sugar!

With the Rancilio, ANYBODY CAN PULL AN EXCELLENT SHOT! It is super easy!

Buying Experience

Ordered my Rancilio on-line with Whole Latte Love, and arrived when they said it should.
