Summary: Easy to use espresso maker and to clean. Use the unit on an electric stove top or on a hot plate, no cords to plug in. Excellent coffee maker for a few small cups of espresso. Affordable and delivered quickly.
Summary: Best coffee maker around, tho not espresso so it won't have oily foam on top. Makes 2 oz less than rated numbers, so our "6-cup" makes 10 oz and we're going to buy a "9-cup" too. Specific tips: 1. This is aluminum, so never put it in a dishwasher.
Summary: If you love a cappucino to start your day, buy this. It's easy to use, performs every time with ease and uniformity. The steamer will foam any kind of milk while the coffee perks. So simple, so wonderful!
Summary: I did not purchase this Espresso Maker to make espresso coffee. I bought it as a "upside-down" percolator of regular coffee. I first used such a coffee maker in Italy and loved it. Makes excellent coffee -- about two cups of "Americano". Fast, Hot, Good, Easy to clean. I am very pleased.
Summary: I've used on one of the all-in-one espresso makers for years (espresso & frother). The espresso was "fine" and the frother was unreliable. So I started on the search for a new machine that doesn't cost in the 1000's. After reading the reviews I decided to give this guy a try...
