Starbucks' long-running consumer espresso machine
Yegor Timofeyenko (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: If Silvia's expresso quality is worth 500 dollars, then I would say that Barsta's expresso quality is worth 150 (Yeah! There is that much difference!!!) . People, Please, DON'T BUY the BARISTA

Bottom Line: Great machine and when on sale, a great value

Sharky Meyer (quality: 6.0)
