Great little espresso machine, same quality as the big ones, small footprint. We buy our ground coffee fresh and keep it in the freezer. Easier to keep the quality up than with beans...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Topos Simply not fit for purpose
Very poor flow of water through filter. Need to leave filter and coffee in palce for at leasat half an hour before brewing to allow it to "warm up". Even this does not work with some cofee grinds - although they are advertised as "suitable for all coffee makers".

Rated 4 out of 5 by Plato Overall good, but a few small issues
Makes a nice espresso, but a few of issues: gasket for steam wand missing (in both versions of machine - the first had to be returned for another reason), and is essential to form a tight enough seal to keep the wand attached when using - added a couple of ubber o-rings to mine second time round; crema enhancer - tiny piece of plastic very easy to lose and without it machine frequently sprays coffee everywhere, and shouldn't an espresso maker create a crema without this gadgetry anyway?; drips from steam wand/main portafilter connection when using other respectively
