Pros: Decent espresso and good steam producer when it works. Looks sharp.
Cons: Lack of reliability! Starbucks doesn't carry it any longer, what does that tell you?
Summary: I purchased from Starbucks March of 2003, the Saeco Italia. After four months, I hear steam and sizzling from inside of the machine, then a burnt plastic smell. Returned to Starbucks for a replacement. The replacement had the same problem five months
