Rated 5 out of 5 by LMJ1 Easy to use and tasty espresso.
If you read the instructions, you can't screw up. The machine has prompts and it is really hard to make a "mistake." If your espresso isn't good,don't blame this machine: you have bought the wrong beans. Make sure they are fresh roasted and NOT dark or oily. I didn't like the frother with the tube for the milk pitcher, so when I contacted the company, they sent me the traditional frother piece at no charge. Can't beat that! I WANT to froth my own milk, so if you don't I can't really comment on the automatic frother, because I only used it once. I love not having to tamp beans and dump them after every cup. The machine does all of that for you. All you have to do is dump in beans, push buttons, and get great coffee. You have to put in water when the reservoir is empty and you have to dump the grounds when the built in trash bin gets full. I can do that. My kids in Australia have had one of these (probably an earlier model, but the same, essentially) for 6 or 7 years and I enjoyed the coffee so much, I bought one for myself. Now I can have it every day at home in the USA. Love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ralph60 Great machine
Love the machine. Largely works as advertised. Makes it easy to always have great coffee drinks available. Only loses a star because of the frother.
