I've had this espresso maker for 4 years now (and actually didn't know it was so reasonably priced now) and absolutely positively love it! I'm a huge coffee fan, a regular at numerous coffee shops and frequently go to Starbucks. I actually prefer a latte from this machine over Starbucks! I highly recommend it. I moved kind of far away and left this behind, thinking I could try another espresso machine, and was very disappointed with it. I ended up just repurchasing this one.

I am very unhappy with this product. It is extremely finicky. Needs to have exactly the right grind of coffee/espresso, which has to be tamped ever so perfectly or it does not work. I hate it!

Nice machine, simple to use, lattes are very good. Bought this to replace an aging Starbucks espresso maker hope it serves me as well.

I bought this thinking with the cuisinart name it would be great. Not so. It made ok coffee but sometimes the grinds would get into the finished coffee. It was very finicky and hard to work. I sent it back to Cuisinart. They sent me another new one. It worked ok for a month and thenm the same thing. I switched back ta mr coffee machine, quite happy again.Do not buy this one
Brands I'd also recommend: Mr Coffee...Cheap, good coffee, warranty

This product is very tempermental. Some days it works fine and others cannot get a cup of coffee. It jams up and it very dependent on the coffee ground. But jams up with the same batch ground. It is a frustrating expresso machine and really not worth the money. I would not buy this brand in the future.
