Yes, the Masini is 15 bucks more than the Delicato. The Delicato is the One though. I could drop the Masini out of the line up and still win the game (of a satisfying espresso experience). Give me a heads up if you are in the area and maybe I can embarrass myself and fail to impress you.
Just kidding, I'm ready. You are invited to a ristretto with special tamping technique.
