Not bad for the price
The machine is pretty big. Takes up a lot of counter space so beware of that. The steamer nozzle is hard to use cause it's so close to the counter top, making it hard to steam the full container of milk properly.
Also, the machine does not come with a metal steaming container for the milk. You have to get this separately.
The coffee side of the machine is great though.
Overall, not a bad machine for $100.
After several years of asking very nicely, my boss finally agreed to buy an espresso machine for the office - the only caveat was that it do coffee as well. I really like the espresso side - my afternoon capuccinos are lovely.
There are several cons to this model, however:
The unit does not come, surprisingly, with a milk frother.
The frothing pipe is very close to the unit itself and makes steaming a little tricky.
The regular coffee unit is slow as molasses.
Makes great espresso/capuccino.
I bought this particular brand based mostly on other reviews for similar products and on a coworkers recommendation, he has another model but I didn't need all those particular bells and whistles so settled on this one. I think it has been a good purchase, I had a little trouble with the steamer at first but after asking for pointers I think I have it down pretty good now. This makes very good coffee and really is quite easy to operate now that I know what I am doing. Like some of the other reviews I read, the steamer would be nicer if it were a little higher up, I had to get a smaller stainless pitcher that really only makes one (large) serving of milk, if it were up higher you could do more, and I wish you could do both at once, make coffee and a latte, but all and all I am glad I purchased this I am having fun with it.7 of 7 users found this helpful.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son and his fiance. They just love it! The biggest selling point for me was the convenience of having more than one coffee option in the same product. I figured that if the espresso function wasn't a big hit, they would still use the coffeemaker function. The best part is that they use both all the time. This product is also an excellent value. The prices for coffee and espresso makers are all over the place, and this one offered so much for the price.7 of 9 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
This machine is very easy to use and takes up less counter space than two separate machines. I do like the way you can stop the steam or brewing mid-cycle in case you need to add more milk etc. It just makes things easier. It would also be nice if it would come with a frothing pitcher, but most machines don't.6 of 7 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
