If you're looking for a first-rate expresso machine, this would be the one. It's a Gaggia Titanium, the only expresso machine that rates a 99 on wize.com.
Here are some of the reviews:
"It's worth the investment if you are looking for exceptional espresso drinks on a daily basis."
"Overall, this was an amazing buy, the steam wand does drip slightly and the descaling program takes a long while when it needs it but its an excellent coffee and all round drinks machine."
The machine comes with a built in grinder so all you have to do is put the fresh coffee beans inside.
It's about 15X15 inches, compact so it can fit anywhere in the kitchen.
The machine weights 25 lb., a very solid piece of equipment.
The price runs from $1200 to $1600.
