I love this coffee maker & espresso machine! It was a wedding gift almost 10 years ago and it is still working great! It is very well made and a very durable coffee maker. We mainly use it for the espresso and have been very happy with it over the years. Our coffee is always consistently great and I love being able to steam the milk to go with my espresso. The coffee brews pretty quickly and the machine is easy to take apart and clean. The removeable parts can all go in the dishwasher, which makes cleaning quick and easy. We have not had any parts break or had any issues with it whatsoever. Definitly worth the money, because it lasts a long time!
