From the manufacturer
An espresso is a far richer drink with a more intense taste than regular brewed drip coffee. An espresso is normally 1 1/2 to 2 oz. of strong coffee. Espresso should be served immediately after brewing. If the espresso is too strong, you can add hot water. Add sugar to taste.
Water in the Boiler
The water in the boiler of the machine will get hotter during the brewing process. Towards the end of the brewing process the water will be so hot that it would burn your espresso. Therefore you never want to process all the water through the coffee as this will result in a burnt taste.
1 1/2 to 2 oz. of espresso coffee with 3 to 4 oz. of steamed and frothed milk on top. Sprinkle chocolate shavings or cinnamon on top of the milk froth. For a stronger taste increase the amount of coffee. For a milder taste increase the amount of milk.
Foamy layer of milk froth on top of hot milk. Which kind of milk? Skim milk and 1% milk will produce more milk froth than 2% or regular milk.
Cleaning The Frother Nozzle:
Wait until the machine has cooled down. The metal frother pipe may still be hot. Pull the frother nozzle off and thoroughly rinse under warm water. Make sure the nozzle is free of any milk deposits. Replace the frother nozzle. Make sure it is firmly pushed up the frother tube.
De-calcifying every 3 months
Remove the nozzle from the steam pipe. Fill carafe (2 oz. of white vinegar and 6 oz. cold water) and pour into the boiler. Close cap. Insert the filter holder with the basket into the machine and lock the filter holder. Place carafe without the lid under the filter holder on the drip tray. Place an empty cup under the steam pipe. Make sure the coffee/steam selector points to the cup symbol and the steam knob is closed. Turn the machine on and let the solution pass through the filter holder into the machine. With the carafe about ¾-filled, slide the selector to the steam symbol. Pass the solution through the steam pipe. Once steaming has stopped, close the steam knob. Repeat once or twice.
Always unplug the machine before cleaning. Never use scouring agents. Wait until machine has cooled down. Never immerse the machine in water or any other liquid. Never hold the machine under running water. To clean, simply wipe off with a soft, damp cloth.
Clean the Filter Basket
Clean the filter basket, the filter holder, and the glass carafe in a hot water/ mild soap solution. For your convenience, the filter holder, filter basket, and glass carafe can be put in the dishwasher's upper level, away from any heating element. Make sure the holes in the filter basket are free of old coffee deposits.
Clean the Tray
Remove the tray cover and drip tray and clean with hot water/mild soap solution. Replace the tray cover and drip tray and make sure the drip tray is locked in place. Wipe the inner screen with a wet cloth. The screen is located above the filter holder area.

Super easy maintenance, I personally just fill the included carafe with half water, half vinegar pour it in boiler then close cap, run it once and then run it twice more with just plain water to remove vinegar smell and that has ensured a fresh smelling tasting cup of coffee every time since.
Definitely take the time to read the instructions, once you get the hang of it it's almost impossible to mess up. It has it's quirks but for the price it's quality is really hard to beat.
In a word - EXCELLENT! And I am a tough critic, having worked as a barista in two upscale cafe's. Of course, any espresso drink is only as good as the beans, roast, and grind... but there are a few other entry-level capuccino machines I have used that produced an inferior espresso (taste and crema) in comparison to this surprisingly affordable unit. It does, however, take a bit of finesse to get the brew and foam just right. I think many of the more critical reviews may be coming from people who have never before made espresso or foamed milk, and who also didn't take the time to read the directions or google any problems or questions that came up. Take a bit of time to learn the machine and to try different techniques and you will be happy with the result.
READ THE DIRECTIONS. (Duh.) This machine works by building up high-pressured steam. Incorrect operation can potentially be dangerous. That said, it is easy enough to operate safely. Don't overload the water chamber, don't allow the steam to build for more than a few minutes at a time without brewing or foaming, and DO NOT LEAVE MACHINE ON & UNATTENDED. There... Now you are safe. :-D
The machine is very sturdy, easy to clean, and it should last a long time with correct operation.
The only negative that comes to mind is the slight difficulty of frothing milk with the attached steaming arm. Surprisingly, the frothing wand works better without the rubber attachment (which is supposed to help create froth, but really doesn't). A little trial and error quickly yields a satisfactory foam. The same is true of achieving optimal crema on the espresso. Experiment a bit with different grinds and with allowing the machine to build up a bit more steam before brewing, and you should be able to achieve cafe quality drinks on your own. Just think of all the money you will save! Those savings alone mean this machine pays for itself in no time at all. Time and money well-spent!
An excellent non-commercial machine for entry-level home use!
