Starbucks' long-running consumer espresso machine
Bottom Line: Easy to use, fool-proof semi-automatic for the coffeegeek-in-training.
Bottom Line: Great draws if you can get everything PERFECT. The machine needs to cooperate somewhat...
Bottom Line: Great machine and when on sale, a great value
Bottom Line: Hard working, dependable, and stylish. A great beginner machine.
Bottom Line: Starbucks Barista, which is an Italian Saeco machine rebranded by Starbucks, is an excellent starter, with excellent build quality and consistency.
Bottom Line: easy to use + consistancy in taste + good quality esspresso - whatelse should one expect from an esspresso machine? machine looks neat&tiny but is very heavy, reliable and cosistant.

Bottom Line: Excellent home machine, ease of use and cleaning, great little cuppas!
Bottom Line: Great machine to learn how to make espresso. Get one used.
Bottom Line: OK coffee, sometimes not hot enough. Modest steaming capacity. But it‘s not expensive and the service is great.
Bottom Line: Great value,good service and support available
Bottom Line: Sturdy, well made, and simple to use.
Bottom Line: A great first machine! Have never regretted the purchase.
Bottom Line: It's been an okay machine. Average at best. It's okay for the price, but I'm looking to upgrade now.
Bottom Line: Looks good, Works Great, and it is as Tough as a Tank.
Bottom Line: For the money, I guess it will do. But don't expect anything more than adequate espresso.
Bottom Line: Definitely recommended for the price. Just make sure you get a decent grinder!
Bottom Line: It is a great machine for the beginner home barista that consistently pulls an above average shot of espresso. If possible wait for the Starbuck’s annual brewing sale (late November/middle of December). No regrets here!
Bottom Line: If you are ready to tinker, it's a solid shooter.
Bottom Line: Good value for $$$, but shot quality is inconsistent.
Bottom Line: Great "starter" machine, best bang for $ when bought on sale. (although the competition is closing in)
