Makes great espresso with thick crema.
Vince
I seated the water tank firmly in place but clearly the pump suction is either clogged or not even connected.
Lacy Winter
Very easy to use and has easy clean up.

Just purchased this unit, (actually the 1334 not the 1334/1, the only difference is less stainless steel exterior). I read hundreds of reviews on all kinds of models and spent way to much time going to the stores here in Florence, Italy looking and comparing and talking to the sales reps. Like most items if you get a bad one you hate it and if you get a good one it is the best there is! So many units are plastic and so light weight that they really scared me. Even the old names out there seem to have models that look and feel cheap and you wonder how long they will last? I narrowed it down to the Ariete Minuetto, Gaggia Evolution and the DeLonghi EC 310 models. I was on a tight budget so that made things a little difficult to sort out as well. The DeLonghi had lots of reviews and the highest user satisfaction rating but two things turned me away, 50 euros higher in cost and it felt light and seemed kind of cheap. The Gaggia was pretty plastic and light as well and was supposed to have good inner working parts but the reviews were a 50/50 thing for the most part with not good ratings on after the sale service. The Minuetto had only 2 or 3 user ratings on it that I could find and they were 50/50 as well but the negative one seemed more like user error to me than the brands problem. So after a lot of scrutiny I decided on the Minuetto at a cost of 99 euro. I looked at the Minuetto pro with all the stainless on it but decided that another 35 euro was not worth just the look of more stainless steel.

The unit was very well packaged and there was no damage of any kind to the exterior of the unit and the fit and finish was excellent. The unit feels very solid and has a good weight to it like something that is made to last for a while.

Let me start off by saying this product is definatly worth your money. I have never written a review before but this product deserved it. I myself have been a barista for several years. With that you become accustomed to good coffee. However you are not used to paying that $4 for every lattee. Now being a stay at home mom I wanted the product without the price.

The machine makes shots that are as good as the big expensive machine at the stand offer. The steamer not so much if you want just warmed milk with a little foam on top you will be fine. However if you want the milk to all have a marshmellow whip texture to it spend another $20 and by a milk frother to.

Do not use tap water. I know it says to but it will really ruin your machine quickly. Use DISTILLED water only. All other water have lots of minerals. Not only will you get better tasting coffee but prolong the life of the machine. Use half a teaspoon puro cleaner or another type of decalcifier once a month with about the filter with no holes on the bottom leaving it turned to the espresso side for two minutes p.It pushs the liquid back up cleaning you machine. All espresso stands do this every night before they shut down the machine.

Now onto to how to make good lattees.
First you will need a better tamper. I bought the one that amazon recommends to go with it.
I bought a simple $15 coffee grinder from walmart that has a hold button. Make sure that you use whole beans that are ground fresh every time. Good espresso is oily and fresh. Bad flavor happens once it has been oxidized to long. You want to make sure when grinding that the coffee is ground to just above powder texture. Then you want to fill the espresso holder filter as full as you can. The first time i did this I tried to not over pack it.

Coming from a Krups that lasted over 10 years before starting to leak from the frothing wand, I was cautiously optimistic about this Espressione brand I'd never heard of. But, due to the good reviews (and the negative reviews of new Krups models), I decided to try it.

Pros:
+ Low price for seemingly good quality (though I wonder if will last as long as my old Krups).
+ Makes great espresso with thick crema.
+ Frothing wand is error proof for making cappuccinos and such.
+ Easy to clean (including the frothing wand).
+ Warming tray gets hot, not just luke-warm.
+ Sufficiently large water tank.
+ Full drip tray indicator.
+ Simple to use.
+ Looks nice without being flashy.
+ Maybe it was because my Krups was just old, but the drink quality of the Espressione Minuetto is much, much better.
+ Did I mention the thick crema?

Cons:
- You have to peak around back to see how much water is left, but that's being picky since most espresso makers are like that.
- It says "Professional", but come on... no coffee bar would use such a tiny and simple machine. How would they justify charging so much for espresso drinks if they didn't use a several thousand dollar machine?

Overall, I've very happy it.

Okay, seriously this lil machine (not a lightweight one either) really puts out a fast and furious brewed espresso! I LOVE it! super fast, super easy to use. I honestly have no complaints about it. I am such a "detail" person who does all my legwork before I purchase and I scored with this one! The "knob" is fine, IF it does fall off like others have claimed, it would be such an easy quick fix. Don't NOT buy it because of this. Really it's a strong knob. I place my muffins on the warmer on top occasionally...so nice! The first time I used it I packed the espresso grounds too tight, ya barely need to press them down. The key to a good perfect flow is packing them just lightly, otherwise it will clog the holes and cause it to not flow smoothly. You will get a nice lil foamy topping automatically on the espresso, just like a quality coffee house. Finally a machine that DOES what it says. Be blown away, get one!
p.s.....add a lil brown sugar to bottom of cup before dispensing....ooooh la la!
