Positive Product Points
easy to use / produces hot liquid / good crema / consistant
Negative Product Points
can‘t think of any now
bought on sale three years ago for $250-ish. once i found the correct combination of grind, tamping and brewing time, it works like a charm. it goes without saying that freshly ground beans are essential. i went through many under-$300 machines and they were useless compared to barista.
