You get what you pay for

Pros:Good coffee, if that's all you're looking for

Cons:Sub-par espresso, and hard to clean foaming function

I bought this machine with little knowledge of what makes a good system. You get what you pay for, and I should have paid more.

I should have spent $20 on a coffee machine, and then a good amount on the espresso side. The espresso is weak regardless of what we do. There were a lot of terms I didn't know of before I looked for a unit, for instance the "bars" on the espresso side. This machine has only 4 bars, versus other machines that have 16 and even more. This makes a huge difference on the espresso quality. I'm lucky to get even a little bit of foam on the espresso, and even then it only happens once in a while.

The foaming nozzle clogs easily and takes forever to clean. If you don't wipe it down within seconds, yes seconds, you then end up scrubbing it down which can take a heck of a long time.

As far as the coffee side, it's pretty hard to get a bad coffee machine, so that part was fine. Long story short, it's like spending $10 on a rocket ship and expecting it to get you to the moon.
