Drinks Starbucks:All day
Starbucks Personality:A shot of espresso
I am a barista at Starbucks and I was looking for something that would complete my home bar.
This semi-automatic espresso machine is a first class work of art. It is beautiful to look especially with the lights on which give it a old-school jukebox feel. Classy.
The machine takes less than 5 minutes to warm up and from there it will maintain proper temperature as long as it is on. I have no problems pulling shots of espresso and steaming milk at the same time. There is plenty of pressure and the steam wand is of good quality. I find that it becomes VERY warm to the touch on the rubber grip area when manipulating the steam wand.
The espresso shots are only as good as the grinder you are using. It didn't take me very long to dial in the right amount of espresso, forming beautiful crema.
I highly recommend this espresso machine. It is something that will make drinks as good if not better than what you get at your local Starbucks.
