What is the optimal way to find a quality espresso machine? Up to 90% of all buyers look over the official specifications. They also count the price and try to find a middle solution. It sounds good, but it is wrong. No manufacturer will ever be 100% honest in those specs. Plus, they tend to hide a series of minuses anyway, not to mention quality standards. They will never claim that their espresso machines may give up within the first half a year only because it is entirely made of plastic. This is when you need an unbiased perspective, so check out a few reviews.
