As noted in another thread Ive had mine for just over a day now. Havent really had the chance to play around with it too much. I wanted to dial it in with all the defaults first. Let me say that even with all the defaults this machine produces a great espresso. I mainly drink ristrettos and long black and Im more than happy.
Ive foamed milk for my wifes hot chocolate and was amazed with how easy it was to produce great microfoam. As others have said it probably doesnt have the same pressure as some other machines out there but the steam is very clean and dry.
Ill be mucking around with preinfusion and temperatures over the weekend. I have some VST baskets but will leave those until I understand the machine a bit better.
