Pros

  • Manual overrides are very useful. They boost your drinking confidence because they allow you to customize your drinks to your taste.
  • The dry pick feature makes it very easy to get rid of the coffee grounds used in the portafilter.
  • The auto-purge function automatically adjusts the water temperature after steam, thus reducing the waiting time between extraction and steam. It helps for optimal coffee extraction.
  • Whether you are under or over extracting, you can see the whole situation via the gauge on the front of the machine.
  • The machine produces high-quality espresso and milk foam.
  • Its 1600w high-quality Thermo coil heating system takes about 30 seconds from cold start to initially warm-up.
  • It heats water ‘on-demand.’ The hot water outlet makes it easy; either you warm your cup or make other drinks.
  • A high-quality manual steam rod lets you make the best texture and microfoam of milk and tailor it to your preferences.
  • The pre-infusion feature ensures that water enters the coffee grounds evenly to ensure that the same amount of water flows throughout the bed once the extraction begins.
  • 15 bar Italian Pump produces enough pressure to brew consistently good espresso
  • Internal PID and Thermocoil heating system help to keep the temperature stable.
  • A joint steaming wand makes it too easy to maneuver on a ball.
  • Choose which you like: Either pre-programmed or manual shot volumes. 
  • Powerful espresso machine in a reasonably small size 
  • The machine reminds you with its built-in notifications when it comes time to descale the machine and empty the drip tray.

Cons

  • It takes some trial and error with the dosing feature when you first start.
  • Cleanin is somewhat tricky without practice. For the best and most fear-free cleaning, you need to get used to Braille’s instructions.
  • To achieve an espresso that suits your tastes, you need some experimenting.
  • Learning directions are a bit difficult.
  • It takes a little bit of time to learn how to tweak the settings of Infuser.
  • PID water temperature control loses a bit of control overheating
  • There is no opportunity to immediately grind whole beans with a built-in grinder and brew.
  • You cannot steam and extract simultaneously because the machine hasn’t a dual boiler feature.
  • To control the temperature manually is impossible.
