I have experience with espresso machines like Saeco. When making espresso how come this machine does not create a thick coat of coffee foam which helps lock in the heat from escaping from the coffee in the cup?
If you want to froth milk to create a thick coat of foam, you must turn the steam/hot water knob to the steam setting and turn the function knob to the steam/hot water setting, while keeping the steam wand about half an inch under the surface of the liquid. For a more detailed explanation, refer to page 8 of the instruction manual which explains how to properly create a thick coat of foam on your espresso. Hope this helps!

All these negative reports I'm thinking of returning it. I had the Breville for 8 years until the wiring shorted, I thought to try Cuisinart - same price range but sexier. Perhaps it's time to listen to your customers and make improvements?

I've decalcified the machine and cleaned all the parts and still not getting a drip once I put the filter under. It runs fine when you're just running water through so I'm assuming it's and issue with the filter baskets or portafilter holder. Suggestions?

How do you clean the steam wand? There is a sticker on the side that says "remove steam wand for cleaning..." But haven't found instructions on how to do that and I don't want to break it because I love the steamed milk.
above is a link of the cleaning instructions for the steam wand. Which can be found on page 9.

Who makes the pods to fit this machine? Tried Tassimo and Keurig - no luck.
The espresso pods come in a wide variety of names and flavours, which can be purchased at most retail stores. i.e Canadian Tire, Costco, Starbucks, Bed Bath &Beyond just to name a few.
