Best Company I have dealt with
I have bought a few units for various people over the years, different espresso machines from different companies. The Barista Express is always a great option and makes a great coffee. Just bough the Specialista too and need to see if it is better but not sure yet. Will wait for it to arrive and see. ECS though is always a great company to deal with
The item was in good condition and I had no problem so far. My only concern was when it was delivered, the box (not the purple box but the brown box where the purple box was put on in) was open.
