It does exactly what it says.
It makes great tasting coffee, it needs the bottom tray washed at the end of the day and the milk flask. Keeps itself clean in between each use, apart from having to empty the drip tray regularly.
I only give 4 stars because I would prefer the milk a bit hotter, but the coffee is hot.
Even coffee which I didn't think much of in a cafetierre or a filter tastes good from this machine, I don't know how they've done it but they have definitely got it right.
It's a lot of money, but then at the moment you can buy it very cheaply here, no one else matches it and you definitely won't be disappointed.
