We've had one for 2 years now and it works well, is hella-convienent, and pretty consistent on the strength of the coffee. We make Americanos and Mochas every day (Eggnog lattes for the holidays!) Everything is great except for the water tank connection leaks a little from time to time, and the mysterious alarm light which often goes out after the last thing you check. For example the alarm light is lit, Hmmm, water full (check), coffee hopper full (check), spent ground hopper not too full (check), spent water pan not too full (check), BrewGroup need cleaning (nope, check). WHY IS IT ON??!! 4 minutes later --Oh, the steamer valve was not fully closed! We also removed the steamer foamer thingy as the foam from steaming the milk would overflow before the milk was hot. BUT, we'd still buy it again for the convenience even at a higher price.
Not a Pirate, but I'll probably take your boat anyway --Arrr!

Country of origin? I've had good luck with the old machines made in Italy. Where are these made?
