Pros:

Large coffee compartment
Quick adjustment of coffee strength, volume and temperature
The coffee is delicious, most importantly you need to buy good grains, any coffee machine cannot make good coffee from bad grains

Cons:

1. often pour water from the sump
2. Throw away coffee cake from coffee all the time (sometimes it requires even after 1 cup), you can cheat by opening and closing the tray
3. It’s difficult to wash because of coffee residues, which are many and they are everywhere
4. noisy
A difficult cleaning process, the instructions somehow crookedly describe this procedure, but we, of course, figured it out.
Very frequent cleaning, water runs into the pan very quickly, you need to clean every 5-6 servings
Noisy (if this can be considered a drawback)
I have been using it for more than two years. After the first year of use, the multivalve (12,000 rubles for everything) broke down at a cost of 25,000 rubles for a new machine. They explained that this is their weak point and frequent breakdown (((
Failure after a month of operation. When the steam supply was turned on, steam began to flow from the door where the cooking unit was, and the productivity of the cappuccino machine itself also dropped by 2–3 times. The solution to the problem in the comments.

Customer comments:

I have been using it for more than a year, except for washing, there are no flaws. After a year of operation, the plastic inside broke, the service said because of the constant use of the cappuccino machine.
Resentment about the impossibility of using ground coffee in c / m is surprising! Why buy a good, expensive coffee maker and use previously ground coffee? After all, freshly ground grain gives the taste!
An excellent machine for the money, for the office or for the home, where there is someone to drink coffee. It’s easy to take care of it, once a day drain the water from the pan, rinse the brewing unit under running water once a week, grease and descale once every 500 cups.
After the repair, 10 months passed, again the failure of the multivalve)))) Decide for yourself, maybe something else to look after?
