Hi, I was hoping to get some help on this topic. I have a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy one of these machines. There have been a lot of chats about this topic with minimal commitment.

Could users of both machines explain in their opinion which machine is better and why?

Thank you very much!

I'm just here to envy you :). I absolutely love both machines, without no good reason I want MVP more. Actually used Speedster one or two times, nothing to complain about...

One isn't better then the other. When you're buying this type of machines it really depends on personal preference. Do you like to fiddle around a lot and have the fear of missing out on something then buy a Synesso. If you just want a easy to control superior espresso machine without all of the bells then buy the Speedster.

Personally I'd buy the Speedster with Irdomatic.

All the shots I drank from Speedsters were great. All the shots I drank from Synesso were not that great.

Oh and you do need a far better grinder then a Mini if your buying one of these.

So in "the definitive comparison," you offer nothing and expect everyone else ro shower you with information.
