This is a great super automatic. Firstly, the machine has a rapid steam feature which works perfectly and you can also choose which way round you want to Brew and Steam, either way works and the expresso is still good. One feature, they directly solved was having a shorter path for the expresso to travel, to get to the cup. Being only 2.5 inches in this machine, it means it doesn't cool down on the way to the cup. It is also pretty small and fits right into most places with ease, as well as being on a turntable, which is always helpful. This machine really has it all and is only around £300 to £400. There is really nothing it has forgotten about. It even has a fully automatic cleaning system, so you just press a button and it cleans itself! It's such an easy machine to use and this is why I've given it five stars.
