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.
Really awesome espresso machine here by bezzera. Build quality is incredible. Looks great on my kitchen counter and really delivers with each pull. I wish it was priced a little lower though. I don't see much of a difference between this and some of the other cheaper options on the market. And for that I give it four stars.

I bought this machine from Cosimo, and it's been a nice upgrade from my previous Breville DuoTemp. The group heats up nicely and quick enough, steam and water are strong, and the PID temp control makes it a little more tuneable for extraction. This is my first 58mm machine as well. I'm very happy with this machine and the espresso it produces at its price point in the current US espresso machine market. The finish is also quite nice.
The reservoir could have been better engineered for making it easier to see the water level and to fill the tank, and they should have included a blind portafilter basket for backflushing. Note that water softeners are recommended in the manual but not included. It would be nice if the group were higher from the drip tray, but I can get a scale and cup under it if I use a bottomless portafilter (not included).
Awesome and well built machine. Use it to pull 2-5 shots a day. Makes for a beautiful counter piece. Excellent delivery.
good machine decently sturdy,would like it to have a little more weight to it but is very good all round
Did quite a bit of research after my old Krups lost its boiler seal. After quite a bit of comparing, I found this one to be what I would purchase. Industry standard 58mm portafilter, good steam control and an excellent finish. Took me three pulls with adjustments to my grinder to get a great cup! Bought a bottomless portafilter in order to assist in getting it right. Bottomless has a great capacity. I have absolutely no regrets about with my purchase. It was a couple of more bucks than I initially planned on spending, but the features fully justified the extra expenditure.
