This looks great, but think twice before buying!

 

I loved the sleek and modern look of this espresso machine, but I should have read others reviews before we plunked our money down! All the components of the machine work well as a whole, but the espresso produced was bitter. Then, by the time you...

Easy to use. Great with ESE Pods.

 

This is a good machine for the budget concious. It makes great espresso with crema from Starbucks ESE pods. However at [...] cents per shot it can get expensive, though not as expensive as going to Starbucks. I have also tried pods from a private...

Fantastic

 

Why go to Starbucks when you can do it as good at home. You will pay for this machine after just a few trips to a premium coffee house and the drinks you make are as good or better.

Quick brewing, Easy to use

Wow!

 

Over the years I have had "better" machines from both DeLonghi and Krups and neither made lattes as tasty as this machine does.
