I've owned this machine for 4 years and it has made thousands of espresso shots and coffees. I am impressed with it's reliability and the quality of the espresso it makes. I researched the super-automatic class before making my purchase and this one stood out from the crowd. With practice and the right beans, it will make a latte that rivals a coffee shop. Overall I am extremely pleased with this machine.
We have used this machine for over 3 years and I don't miss my Vente Americano with an extra shot that would cost about $4 each
