Positive Product Points

Solid quality, fast heat up time, good coffee

Negative Product Points

mediocre steamer, simple design

Detailed Commentary

The quality is very good, I used it for many many years without any problem. It heats up pretty fast, you'll have a perfect espresso after about 6 minutes. Espresso's are made pretty good.

The steamer is not really great, always had difficulties to create good steam while on my new machine, it works way better. The new machine is a lot more expensive, so it is not really fair to compare them. Also a minor downside is the size of the portafilter, it is a bit smaller the usual 57-58mm which means it is very hard to find a decent tamper.

I you are looking for something which looks beautifull in your kitchen, I don't think this is the best guess.

Anyway, I think this is a great machine for people who want good coffee without spending +1000$

Buying Experience

Bought it via a regular webshop, no issues.
