I've had one of these for more than two years. I was skeptical when I purchased it - but it so amazingly exceeded my expectations I could almost say it's a miracle that you can get a machine that is so easy to use and so inexpensive - and that makes espresso as good as I have enjoyed in the most celebrated cafes. The ongoing cost of the capsules are very reasonable when the quality of the espresso and is significantly less than what it costs to purchase at a coffee bar. And the convenience of being able to make a cup at home, at any time is just a godsend. I've also done a lot of business with Heartland and have always found that they stand behind their customer satisfaction policies.

This will be my second unit (first still works fine) this one will be going ot my summer home, so I can enjoy espresso there too. What a great value - and the variety of true Italian coffee is a great way to start each day.
