I was looking for a cheap espresso machine to use with pods and I only use it once or twice a day. This one seemed like a good fit. I measured my pods in the portafilter and they fit just fine. The machine worked great for the first 2 days but then began to lose pressure. I could see the steam bypass to the drip tray. Not sure exactly what the problem is, but this is clearly not a machine meant to last.

Do not buy. Can't push water through fine grind and does not seem to extract coffee as our other machines do so well.

This machine, while easy to use, does not produce a HOT espresso. It froths well and has adequate pressure for nice crema, BUT not hot. I returned under warranty for repair and it came back. Their solution - a new porta filter. Huh? Still, not a hot enough espresso or capuccino - despite following all the steps, preheating of porta filter and cup, froth first, espresso last.

I prepare a latte every morning and also have family and friends who occasionally come and enjoy a latte with me or perhaps some other espresso drink. I like the water tank it is large and does not have to refilled very often, it pours a beautiful drink, it is a little messy on clean up but that is a minor thing.
Large Water Container, Great Taste, Easy To Use
