Detailed Commentary

I took it out of the box, added water, plugged it in, added espresso and made a cup of awesome espresso with super thick and plenty crema. Then I took my milk pitcher,  switched on the steam button, started frothing my milk and received the gift of great frothing power. All machines should work like this one! I tried it with a little more espresso and with a little less and they both came out great. Seems it is not to sensetive to the grind or quantity of the espresso grounds. I have used a Rancilio, a La Pavoni, and a St. gallen, and I must say this works best. The Rancilio was great as well,  but a lot more sensitive to grind and tamping. It's not the prettiest machine but I don't care, the working of it is much more important to me!

Buying Experience

Found it on ebay for just $50.00! Seller had great feedback and will receive one from me as well! Ebay is great for good deals but as I have said before- only buy from someone with very good feeback!
