Its a great fun machine!
Its not a machine for those that want their coffee making automatic-there are just too many variables, but you do learn about coffee making from this machine.You need to replace gaskets every two of three years (daily use). I have blown the element three times and have now made an alteration to the machine so that I now have a light for on/off which was not on my model.(But we do give this machine heavy use).
I have had my Pavoni Europiccola for six years and I love it. It is however a bit like owning a tempermental motorbike, I get great coffee 8/10 times now but in the early years the succes rate was under 5/10! Its a relationship you have to develop with this machine! Despite what another reviewer writes I find the frother is fine, it's the milk that varies a surprising lot. A really fun machine, I'd buy another.
