Anyone can pull a beautiful shot with the Rancilio..
Positive Product Points
Solid, sturdy Looks great on the countertop. Heavy (won't move when locking in portafilter).
Negative Product Points
Only that the water container could have held more water.
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!
Ordered my Rancilio on-line with Whole Latte Love, and arrived when they said it should.
