Works great. Well made and quite sturdy.

I've been using this for six months now with Lucaffe ESE pods. The espresso comes out dark and thick with a good crema. The temperature gauge is a nice touch and it's better than just a light. The drip tray is made out of metal. You remember metal, right? It's what your lunchbox was made out of!
Today, it stopped pumping and I was all set to open up the gates of hell, like others who have had the pumps die. Then I ran a dezcal citric acid solution through it and voila (or however you say "voila" in Italian) it started working again. The water inlet holes were plugged. I'm wondering if that's all it was for those other folks.
