Bottom Line: Great machine for entry and mid-level espresso fans.  After a few years you may want to move up to a better machine.
Don McFall (quality: 5.0) 10.12.2002 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Good solid machine if you can find it on sale
Don Sucher (quality: 6.6) 01.14.2002 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: This makes good (indeed very good) espresso so easily accessable that the coffee religion may suffer for it.  Buyer beware!

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!
