Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good machine

 

Worth the money, use a good quality bean and you won't be dissappoited. I tried 3 different beans and there is a big difference depending on the beans used.

Easy to use, easy to program. It takes a few cups to program what you like, once you do the machine is consistent and makes a great Capuccino, better than most coffee shops. Makes a good espresso with lots of crema

the Steamer can be a bit messy, sprays a little, water tank is small but I can live with it
