Good but could be better
I have had my machine for one year and still enjoy making 2/3 cups of coffee a day.
Memo function is great allowing for precisely the right amount of water. I have used other machines and this is the best so far.
AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT.
With the fabulous pre and post brew cleaning facilities the unit uses a lot of water so the reservoir needs to be much bigger or be capable of being plumbed in.
The waste water collector fills up too quickly and is prone to spilling its contents when emtying.
The steam wand does not make the milk hot enough for a latte or cappuccino, Need to microwave for 60 seconds first.
