Espresso machines - has anyone ever used one of these?

by Howard » Wed Mar 29, 2006 5:34 pm

Elektra micro casa a leva ART.S1CO espresso machine. This is the most gorgeous kitchen appliance I've ever seen. Does it work?

I have no experience with these, Howard, but there's a very nice review on Coffeegeek.

No question that it is one beautiful machine!

Janet and I bought a Jura Impressa E8 as our joint Christmas present this year. Got it at Williams Sonoma which has a great return policy -- take it back any time no questions asked.

This is a wonderful machine -- it has become a necessity here.

Espresso attachment goes for another $100 or so.

Every single selling point is true.

I have a good friend who has one of those. He's an espresso addict and loves it. He's made me a few cups, and they've been really good.
