Mark 01.22.2001 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: I  will shop for a different brand next time. The functions were O.K., but I think I can find a machine which lasts for more than 2 yrs for the price.

Loren B (quality: 7.0) 09.27.2007 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: If you can find one, go for it!   Make sure you use a  non pressurized portafilter and a good grinder with it (or modify your Starbucks Barista Grinder as I have)
