Positive Product Points

has a grinder on it

Negative Product Points

the look is awful (all white plastic with ugly prints on it), no cup-warmer, the thing where the steam comes out, is made of plastic

Detailed Commentary

When I opened tha package, the machine had already lost 3 screws - italian quality, but it worked without them too.
Only if you press the last out of the grinder, it produces coffee which is fine enough.
Could be more steam (to heat a bit more milk, you always have to give her a rest for reheating).
You can reach a good espresso-quality with a lot of experimenting, but the start is not easy at all.
The steam-tap is made of plastic and didnīt last more than half a year of moderate use. I hope I find somewhere the spare part.
