alongside the lever i have a La Marzocco Linea, just because my wife does like how the lever looks, but not how it operates.

i would suggest smth with saturated group, PID. Decent Espresso looks pretty interesting.

Maximatic. I've a 2010 model and no issues after 9 years. A simple and very forgiving machine. In fact, i prefer it over Cremina.

Awhile back I heard that Olympia Express sells three times as many Maximatics as Creminas.

What I WOULD do for a good cup of coffee!

I guess it's true. I've sold all my machines except Maximatic, Caffarex and Cremina. And Maximatic is my daily driver.
