The order was filled and delivered quickly. The bottomless portafilter was a perfect fit.
Best value single boiler out there. Comiso took great care of me, very happy. Life is better with a home espresso bar!
The espresso machine is amazing! Not only is it gorgeous to look at, it works so well and gives us wonderful manual control.
Getting great results with light roasts
Bought brand new, everything but the hot water worked as expected.
Comiso quickly addressed the issue with the gasket and shipped another one, however.
It's a knock box, not much to say here. Arrived in good condition and works well.
This machine replaced a Silvia. The steaming capability is amazing. I had five guests for coffee on the patio. All wanted milk drinks and it was absolutely able to keep up with the demand. The ability to schedule routine maintenance is awesome and the timer for startup is very convenient. The only drawback I have been able to discover is the touch screen never goes dark, even when the machine is asleep. The build quality is phenomenal. The frame should never corrode as it is all stainless. Additionally, while the group is not heated the boilers come to temp in eight minutes. The PIDs are amazing also. Although, I do not appreciate the lighting, I recommend the duo over the matrix.
Plenty of options for programming, straight forward setup. Took me a while to dial in the first time around, but this machine has worked like a charm.
Included tamper is pretty bad and will need to be replaced. Can’t fault the machine itself.
I absolutely love these Lelit espresso cups with the pic of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. The cups are high quality and are made in Italy. The arrived well packed.
Awesome grinder! Pairs well with Lelit espresso machine.
As stated before this is a fine made and functionally designed highest quality machine that will make excellent espresso for you. You control the variables for the coffee, weight/grind, and even the compression from constants provided w/o lots of complex electronics being involved. If you don't want to be involved and just press some button (and you can understand the series of instructions necessary) that's fine and get something else and an excellent extended warranty.
This firm has the finest of help and satisfaction possible as well. After having made thousands of cups of fine espresso using many coffees with this copper//brass model before this purchase....it's recommended to you per years of experience with machines and grinders. Just ask Nick!
Lelit Anna Espresso Machine
This home machine is built to lifetime standards, heavy, robust, competent. Although it has no built in grinder, and the portafilter unit gets far too hat to handle. It's a good looking machine; reminder of being in a small steam locomotive. Unfortunately, it takes almost 15 minutes to heat up and produce espresso.
The espresso product is like all good espresso machines, dependent on fresh grinds, the correct fineness, and "packing" that is just right. Its a very handsome addition to one's kitchen shelf. Is it worth $2000???---That depends entirely on your personal budget and enjoyment of a bit of institutional art.
Got the MaraX around 20 days ago, have loved every bit of it so far. My power cord came scuffed, so I contacted Comiso and they sent me a replacement right away.
* Takes up little space on the counter
* Easy to operate
* Is much more consistent than my old machine.
* Takes 20 minutes to heat up, so I had to buy a smart plug for it.
* HEAVY. Not a big deal, but I had to reposition it once and it was not easy.
* Has a pipe under the grouphead that flushes out water when you close the lever. That sometimes splashes hot water onto my scale if I don't place it properly
Grind size is very consistent, machine is easy to operate.
