Dear Friends, The order arrived quickly to Canada and in good order. The espresso pump matches the description with all items neatly packed in the retail box with instructions. This is a good espresso pump and with cleaning care and use, it should last me a while. I do recommend this.
Thank you hipmod.com It has been a while I have had this. Continues to work well and really makes a good cup of espresso. Since this is not a 15 bar pressure maker, you really have to use a not so fine grind. Between medium and fine grind works best depending on the humidity where you live. I use a portable hand grinder, that I bought here at AE, and adjust the grind accordingly. I recommend adding a bit of hot water into the reservoir first, throw it out and then fill it up. That way the water stays hot when you use it.
