I have a DeLonghi bean to cup machine at home so I am already a DeLonghi fan. When I saw the box arriving I was really excited, when I installed it (at work) I was aliitle worried as it is not a solid feeling as what I was expecting (a lot more plastic than metal) but I then tested everything from grind to amount etc and was very impressed with the coffee it produced. I still have my reservations re longevity but let's see it's still early days. Hopefully I am proven wrong.
I would have given you a 5 star but had to take one back because after purchasing I noticed that quite a few big brand stores were selling the same product for R1000 less. I sent an email but got no response. I hate "no responses" so you lost a star for for bad/no communication. Sorry
