Combination Coffee & Espresso Machine
I was given this coffee maker as a gift (bought from Bed Bath and Beyond) and as a foodie and former restaurant owner I was skeptical of ALL counter top coffee makers that offered an espresso option.
Color me surprised when I got a good cup of espresso from it!!! Did it take some experimenting with grind, roast and tamping to get MY perfect cup - of course, but the same can be said for all machines.
I was impressed with the 15 bar pressure but would have enjoyed a gague to monitor the pressure when making multiple cups (I am have never been trusting of lights)
The foam/steam capacity also takes some experimenting but its worth it to play as you get a surprisingly good result with some practice and patience!
All in all, a good, solid counter top machine that I am now happy to say I own and that keeps me sufficiently caffeinated to maintain adequate social skills!
