Amazing budget Espresso machine
Pros: This machine is simply amazing for the price. Buy it! I actually look forward to waking up to use this beast to jumpstart my day.
Cons: I bought 1 instead of 3. Shipping label slapped on the OEM box, not a newegg box. Minor gripe, was shipped with zero flaws/damages so I don't mind.
Overall Review: I was in the market for a budget espresso/capppucino maker and bought this one on sale. I am honestly very impressed. I am not a coffee snob, but had always drank normal drip coffee and wanted to get an espresso maker for a long time. This was the right price, and I couldn't be happier. It is a compact little unit, so I do understand the other reviews not liking how short the froth spout is, but I have no problems using it and thats the cost of it being so compact and inexpensive at the same time. My girlfriend liked it so much I wanted to buy 2 more, one for her and one to gift (since it was so cheap), but sadly it was back to $50 as the sale had ended. If you're not picky and on a budget, this is your machine! I'm not sure I'd pay the $50 for it if on a tight budget, but I'm glad I bought it.
