Had it for 6 years and it still makes great coffee. Tried to replace it with the Incanto Sirius ($1500 machine), but I like the taste of my expresso's with the Vienna Deluxe better. I have my dose adjusted to the maximum setting (+), the grinder is set to 7, and the volume to 1oz per shot. I mainly use Italian Roast coffe beans from Starbucks. I usually run hot water through the steam wand for at least 30 sec to make sure the machine internals are hot before breweing my coffe. I"ll guest I will be keeping this machine for little bit longer until I find something else I like better.
