This is a nice machine to use, lots of pressure from an 18 litre boiler (you never run out of steam). Consistent temperature from heavy cast group heads. So far no major problems, just a few seals replaced and one electrical repair after four years service. The pumps produce a nice even pressure and we get a very good crema. These machines are made in Spain and are becoming very popular, the Vienna version being used in many franchised cafés.
