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: A great first machine! Have never regretted the purchase.
Sharky Meyer (quality: 6.0) 03.12.2004 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Great entry level product, with great customer service.  If you upgrade from a steam (non-pump) machine, you will be shocked by the improvement.
