Ease of use: The smallest of our tested models, it can be programmed to brew an exact amount. But a part in our unit's steam wand broke early on.
Taster's choice: Balanced in body and taste but lacking the fullness of flavor you'll find from the Gaggia.
Ease of cleaning: It has space to store accessories, which helps with post-cleanup organization.
The final buzz: Breaking a part so quickly was a disappointment, but customer service was quick to replace it.
