Our New machine arrived today from Clive coffee - out of the box it is beautiful! We opted for the custom wood panels. We couldn't wait for the Clive model "the LUCCA" (https://clivecoffee.com/collections/espresso-machines) and opted for the factory LaSpaziale with the custom panels. Clive is a great company to work with, great customer service and very responsive! We love the Eureka Grinder as well, great value!
Update 4/7/2014 - so far we have been very satisfied so far with our purchase, few things to note: while the wood panels are beautiful they don't fit as perfectly I would think they should also we had to replace a thermometer, which was easy! Biggest issue so far is producing Americanos - they drain the boiler fast and stop coffee production - we are planning to have a hot water source in addition to the machine moving forward.
