We even take it in our RV when traveling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mkmugs The BEST espresso!
I really struggled with this purchase but in the end it is worth every penny spent.....with the right coffee, way better than what we get in coffe shops and it is fairly easy to use.

Literally one day after posting my original review, and only about a month after purchasing the machine, the frothing device stopped working completely.
When we turn it on to heat up, we hear loud crackling noises coming from the brew unit, and then steam starts coming out of the side of the machine, but no water or steam comes out of the panarello at all.
Looks like I'll be taking this machine back to Costco and buying a different brand.
Phillips has officially lost a loyal and long-time Saeco customer and referral source!

I have had a lot of expresso machines, a lot, and even one from a well know coffee company. I was apprehensive at the price but well worth it. This one is the very best. I would suggest this one to anyone wanting a great expresso machine without the mess and confusion of the cheaper ones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jones6 Makes good espresso after adjustments
I used the machine the way it came with the factory settings. I found the espresso to lack flavor and intensity. This being the case, I consulted the users manual and adjusted the coffee bean grinder to the max and reduced the amount of water/steam introduced in order to produce an espresso. The adjustments I made yielded a much more robust tasting espresso. The steamer is also easy to use. I just hope that the unit lasts for several years so that I can continue to enjoy espresso.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sshepar1 This machine changed my mornings!
The one thing I knew I wanted before our second baby's arrival was a reliable, quick, and good espresso machine. This machine has exceeded our expectations! We have programmed it to brew exactly what we want, and it makes delicious espresso! I was nervous about the upkeep, but it hasn't been that bad. Now I actually look forward to getting out of bed in the morning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lambojack Delicious Coffee was Never Easier to Make
The quality of the coffee was exceptional. I go to Italy every Spring and enjoy their coffee, usually the Lavazza brand. So I bought some Lavazza beans online and in this machine, the flavor of the coffee is just outstanding. The only drawback is the feature that is supposed to work with grounds does not work. I simply dumps the grounds in the bin and discharges water into the cup. I removed the brew head and checked everything according to the manual and it still doesn't work. I can probably live with that deficiency since the rest of the coffee from beans is so good!
