Positive Product Points

Stylish case, clean running and easy to maintain, large capacity drip tray, rotating base, best stainless steel frothing attachment. Great support and service from importer, Baratza.

Negative Product Points

Lacks some useful features including: ability to adjust temperature and dosage, and ability to bypass internal grinder, but the standard settings produce excellent results.

Detailed Commentary

Basically a repackaged Saeco Vienna but additional water and bin capacity, case design, and quality Swiss construction are worth the slight increase in price. Larger volume settings (up to 9 fl oz) are of marginal value since it over-extracts high acid coffees. That may still enjoyed by many, but "cafe americano" may be a better long drink. Excellent espresso using fresh, home roasted beans--if you use anything else, its not the fault ofthe machine. $540.
