Great espresso ! easy to use
on January 29, 2014
Have had other semi auto espresso machines in the past and stepped up to this model at Christmas. It took a long time to get the water primed properly and the system had to run maybe a dozen pucks before it really started to settle in on espresso that is loaded with crema, and all the awesome flavors of a good espresso. The instruction note this need to "teach" it what your patterns are so we were patient for for the first few shots. Only knocking off 1 star because the water reservoir is fairly small and at the pace we use it, 5-7 shots a day, we refil ever other day it seems. Truly automatic, fast heating, just add water, beans, and toss the pucks. It will make one shot after another, steam milk in a hurry and clean itself and go into standby when you are done.
I use the bypass feature for decaf and it works really well.
