We purchased this machine as beginners to making espresso at home. Have owned it for almost 12 months and have not had any mechanical problems using it. Just have to clean the Portafilter by un-screwing it, at least every 2 weeks for our use. We also use Alkaline water, not tap-water. Functions as advertised. Perfect for us beginners. Easy to operate. Watched a lot of videos on how to make espresso and lattes. With lots of practice this first year on making the espresso and making foam, we've gotten much better and the coffee is great! We use the larger 2-cup filter for a more consistent pour, which fits closer to a coffee house 7-9 gram ground coffee measurement. The smaller filter didn't make espresso the way we like, the timing was off and the using larger filter produced a better flavored coffee over all. We also tried using Pods with the pod filter and it was easy, but still not a good as using freshly ground coffee. We also purchased a *** coffee grinder which really helped produce more consistent ground coffee and espresso pours. We're able to adjust our ground coffee accordingly so it worked well and didn't jam our espresso filters. We chose this machine over the newer Cuisinart model 2.0 so we'd have more control over making our espresso. Great machine overall for our needs. Would recommend.

I was a little concerned about this product since it is not too end but after using now several times a day for over a month I am a believer and love the quality of the grind and the espresso. The burr grinder has all stainless metal gears, and grinds extremely evenly. My only complaint if I was to make a change to the machine would be to add a double boiler.
