Bottom Line: Great "starter" machine, best bang for $ when bought on sale. (although the competition is closing in)
Eric C (quality: 7.8) 07.13.2003 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Excellent shots with fine grind and preheated portafilter. Great value.
Sean Strugnell 07.26.2003 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Good value for $$$, but shot quality is inconsistent.
Matthew Lynch (quality: 6.8) 10.25.2003 Rating: 9.8
Bottom Line: Buy one and you will not regret it (well as long as you actually use it)
David D (quality: 7.0) 01.02.2004 Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: For cost considerations, ease of use and overall attractiveness you canít go wrong with this machine.
Max Ekstrom 01.15.2004 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: If you are ready to tinker, it's a solid shooter.
Larry Morrison (quality: 2.0) 01.15.2004 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: Not a bad entry level machine.
John Southern (quality: 4.8) 03.01.2004 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: Best machine for price/support/warranty though I'd sell it after 2 year waranty is up.
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.
Gary Meyers (quality: 4.7) 04.30.2004 Rating: 9.0
Bottom Line: All the basics with good quality and reliability- serves 2-3 people best
Michael Sherman (quality: 4.0) 05.19.2004 Rating: 9.4
Bottom Line: Solid workhorse for ten years.  Still going strong.  Best purchase ever.
Yegor Timofeyenko (quality: 6.0) 06.22.2004 Rating: 4.2
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
Michael Mermigan (quality: 6.0) 07.22.2004 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Well built and easy to use out of the box.
Patrick Anwandter (quality: 7.6) 07.22.2004 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Great for the price - call it the first step in the stairway to E61
Laurie Prestia (quality: 7.0) 07.26.2004 Rating: 8.8
