Summary: Had this 10 months, two of use it about 3 or 4 times a day in the week. It started great, but now seals seem to be letting by so coffee is dripping through when you use the steamer, and steam is leaking out when you are making the coffee. It didn't do that when it was new.
Summary: This product is easy to use and makes a nice flavour coffee. The problem I have is in getting the milk to froth for a cappuchino. It doesn't come supplied with a milk container and it is difficult to find one that allows the milk to froth without it spilling over.
Summary: This is a neat machine and it takes up less space than other espresso machines, but that is not all good news. The gaps underneath the coffee and steam nozzles are small and you have to use very short cups and milk jug.
Summary: I think some people expect far too much from this little machine but i was gladly surprised by what it produced, a good tasting cup of coffee. I do have a few issues with it that have been noted by others, namely the distance between the output of coffee and the drip tray which only allows an...
Summary: The machine does what it says on the tin---pretty fair value although coffee amount made at each brew is small--ideal for one person or two at a stretch. The use of the milk steamer/frother takes a bit of working out and practice to get it right and the design of the nozzle means you have to unscrew...
Summary: I preferably wanted one of the more expensive models but settled for this one. For the price, it does what it says. However, the instructions are poor and you have to stop the coffee pouring yourself or you get a lot of watery coffee instead of an espresso.
Summary: Having done some research, decided this espresso machine seemed a good buy at the price. We have a DeLonghi filter machine which has given reasonably good service over almost 3 years of every day usage (although the first one did go back for replacement after only 3 weeks as it was leaking!).
Maybe worth buying a bigger machine for better quality

Excerpt: First off I would like to say that this machine is an aesthetically pleasing addition to my kitchen. It is much smaller than the majority of coffee machines and less than half the size of my previous one. However it is lacking in many key assets.
Nice looking coffee machine but too much fiddling and hassle which puts you off of using it every da

Excerpt: Brought this for my mum and dad as a Christmas present one year as we all love our coffee. It does the job and obviously by putting quality coffee granules in there it makes all the difference from just Nescafé instant!
A good value compact coffee maker for those that are willing to wait

Excerpt: I'm a big caffeine addict and coffee is one of my vices. I really like freshly ground coffee but previously I've settled for instant coffee. When Mr Lools and I moved house almost a year ago and gained a large kitchen with a lot of bench space we decided to invest in a coffee machine.
