Summary: I have had a Capresso 304 Espresso (steam pressure) Machine since January, 2007 making 2-3 cups each day, every day, without a flaw so I was confident in Capresso's ability to produce a good product.
Summary: At first it worked nicely, even produced espresso with crema, but over time the espresso became watery and weak. Today I just discovered the frother is broken, no steam coming through. This is after three years of light use.
Summary: I have been using this machine every days for 2-3 years and had no problem so far. 16 bars of pressure, great coffee ! very good value. Grind some fresh beans (Segafreddo or Lavazza and you are all set). I highly recommend this machine.
Summary: This product no longer works. Doesn't steam or froth milk. Also does not make espresso! The machine worked alright the first week and then slowly deteriorated to not working at all. Worst of all I cannot return the item. So I would be careful and really research before buying this product.
Summary: We took this traveling with us for our family Xmas holidays, opened the box, plugged it in, followed the operation instructions, and water started leaking from the drip tray! A 45 minute long distance call on our dime troubleshooting with Customer Service yielded no success and we were finally told...
Summary: Simple to use and makes for a great beginner espresso machine. The key is using a fine enough grind to get good crema. I buy Starbucks espresso and they'll grind it there for free. Most cheaper grinders don't get it fine enough. Also the frother is super easy to use.
Summary: ive purchased the capresso infinity grinder first and loved it so much i got the frother and now the expresso maker. their stuff is well made, prices very fair and customer service friendly and helpful. i had a problem with the grinder, needed advice on the other two and they were really helpful.
Summary: Mines been used every day for almost two years and it works great. With some practice and the right materials, you can make beverages that are of the same quality of Starbucks or Caribou, any professional store. It isn't luxurious however.
Summary: This is a good espresso machine that is inexpensive but built with good quality material. No it is not a commercial machine but it makes good espresso, is easy to use, and I like it! See the You Tube review from Seattle Coffee Gear and be sure to watch the whole program.
