Bottom Line: sorry I bought this machine
Positive Product Points

easy to use, looks good, steams milk quickly.

Negative Product Points

rapportafilter  retains some of the coffee

Detailed Commentary

solid machine. good support, rapportafilter had a crack at the bottom and was replaced quickly after a call to the 800 number.

when making more than two shots of espresso the quality is affected by some of the coffee remaining in the rapporta filter.it may be okay for a late but the taste of an espresso shot is affected by it.
no amount of rinsing or shaking will empty it. allowing it to drain for several hours on the counter will drain most of it.
it is okay for milk based drinks but an inadequate machine for making a good espresso.

This is the only reason why I will never buy this machine again.

Buying Experience

bought while on sale at local canadian store
