I've got one of these in silver which I managed to get at this price but I wanted the black one. This is the best price I've ever seen it. It's a great espresso machine. And you would have to spend double to make a significant improvement on it...

Got the one with the built-in grinder at the office and it's fantastic. Presume this has the same internals!

15 Bar is far too high - optimum pressure is 9 bar -

Ideally, "There are some people who also like to vary their pressure: starting off with low pressure for a pre-infusion before ramping it up to 9 bars, and then decreasing pressure to match towards the end. Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood has advocated for the use of 6 bars of pressure. As always, with coffee, there are more things to learn and our ideas around extraction are constantly evolving.

However, for now, 9 bars remains the benchmark. In fact, controlling pressure is something that can only be achieved on high-end espresso machines with pressure profiling capabilities."

19bar!!
This is a good price for this machine. I paid £300 for mine a few weeks ago.
It makes good coffee, much better than the Delonghi I had before but it's quite noisy and messy.
Is the internals steel or plastic?

Dunno. But I've had gaggias for twenty five years and this is better than them
The price of these goes up and down on nearly a weekly basis, £250 being the cheapest I've seen.

We had the older model, great machine, will be getting one in the near future.
