Lello 1375 Cremissimo Espresso Machine - $119 at Amazon
The Lello 1375 Cremissimo Espresso Machine is constructed of heavy-duty stainless steel and simple-to-use controls, this espresso maker makes it easy to brew cafe-quality coffee drinks. On top of the stainless steel, it offers some serious features that make it stack up well versus other makers, at least on paper.
The Lello 1375 Espresso Maker's high-performance ThermoBlock 15-bar pump-driven system that provides uniform and constant pump pressure to make a great espresso with good crema and a frothy thick milk cappuccino. So, not only is it a pump driven espresso machine, but it's in stainless; a combination that you just don't see at this price range.
It has a removable 2-1/4-quart water reservoir that can be refilled from the top at any time during operation, and a cup-warming area allows up to nine cups to be warmed before use. The unit comes equipped for ground espresso use, not ESE Pods.

Quick question.. I am thinking about ordering one of the $119 Lello's but read conflicting things. Some of the reviews say it does take E.S.E pods and some say it does not. Does anyone know for sure? That would be a big factor for me. I was going to order a Briel (refurbished) off or Ebay for $60 until I saw the Lello.. Would much rather go new.. Costco had the Villaware Moderno, a copy of the Francis Francis for $169 on their site, sold out in a day..Great deal, now nothing seems as good. Any recommendations would also be great.. Thanks..
This unit does NOT run ESE Pods well; some do and some don't. Starbucks Pods seem OK, but a lot of italian pods do not, so be careful ; That's why I pointed out that the unit was NOT OK for ESE Pods.
