    Advantages

    The machine has a transparent coffee container, which allows you to monitor the process of brewing your coffee. You can immediately see if there is something going on with the machine before it causes any mess. The filter adapter feature lets you choose to brew three cups or six, depending on whether you want to share or just enjoy a cup by yourself. The taste is consistent regardless if you brew less or more coffee. Water and ingredients can also be measured accurately. It is fairly easy to operate, without the complicated knobs and dials found in other espresso makers. It prevents over-brewing, hence, no burnt coffee taste, thanks to the auto shut-off feature. Maintenance is almost hassle-free for this espresso maker. You can stop worrying about stuck coffee grounds and other blends. Because of this, the good taste of espresso drinks are preserved.
