Well, I'd say it can pull a good shot. As with any espresso, you have to know what you're doing. And the manual nature of it makes getting good shots trickier than regular machines, because in addition to all the usual variables of grind, distribution, tamp, temperature, infusion time, etc., you're introducing another variable with pressure.

Warm blue is called purple.
