ESAM3500.N Magnifica Digital Super-Automatic Espresso/Coffee Machine Reviews
The reviews of the ESAM3500 Espresso/Coffee Machine are consistently high. Innovative design and ease of use are the most mentioned factors. Most reviewers sited that the operation is very intuitive and reading the manual, although recommended is not a necessity to make your first cup of espresso coffee. The limited number of bad reviews mention out-of-the-box problems. Although these are limited, repair time and expense is high. Apparently you either get a good one or a bad one. I recommend thorough testing immediately to ensure you have a good unit. If you find problems, return it immediately for a replacement.
