Ease of use: Very user-friendly. You'll love the built-in mechanism that tamps the grounds and then discards them.
Taster's choice: Not quite as rich compared to the others, with only a modest amount of crema.
Ease of cleaning: A breeze. Because the machine transfers the used grounds to a container, there's no filter to clean.
The final buzz: A less pricey alternative to the Breville. But the exterior is made of plastic, which may be considered less attractive than the others.
