I am an espresso addict and this is my first machine. I did a lot of research before buying and it became clear that this machine has the best internals, functionality, and reputation in this price range. I wish I could afford a really expensive machine but for now, this thing is awesome and makes great espresso every time. The process took a little getting used to (making sure I do everything right and keep the machine clean and running properly) but that I know what to do (watched some youtube videos and read some of the instructions).
I am making great espresso at home and know how to care for my machine so it lasts a long time. The process of making the perfect espresso is really part of the enjoyment of the whole experience. This machine has everything you need and is perfect for small spaces. I highly recommend this Delonghi EC155 espresso machine if this is price range you are looking at. It works really well and makes great espresso/cappuccino. The only downside I have found with this machine is that it is not very tall and you have to lean most cups over to use the steam wand but it is easily doable, but it would be nice if it was 1″ taller, but I still love this thing.
