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!

I've had this for 2 weeks (so I can't comment on the durability of this product) but I'm loving it. I've been using the ESE pods so no problems on messiness. And the best thing I did was buy an $8 frothing thermometer. Getting the milk to the correct temp was key for taste. My only issue is that it takes a couple minutes to do the frothing - but that's not really a complaint since I knew that going in (but if you don't want to stand around - you may want an automatic frother). Cleaning immediately is also key, but I can get the frothing wand clean during the 15 seconds it takes to make the espresso (take the wand off the stem and clean both). Assuming this machine lasts me 2 years, it will be a great investment. I ended up choosing Cuisinart because one review noted a 3 year warranty that hopefully I won't have to use.
