Summary: A great little machine for the cost. Has been in daily use at my place for many months now, with no sign of petering out. The body is a little plasticky, but the espresso head itself is made of strong, durable metal, and feels very solid.
Summary: This makes excellent coffee, although, as with all these machines at the cheaper end of the spectrum, it's a bit fiddly and the ground coffee can go everywhere! The steamer works really well - I was surprised by how easy that is to use.
Excerpt: We quite recently had a brand new kitchen makeover with black glossy cupboards and shiny silver appliances. I wanted to go for that minimilistic look and didnt want things all over my worktops but a must for me was a coffee machine.
Summary: I love this machine. Great great coffee, easy to use and a neat fit on my kitchen bench. Only negative is the restriction on the height of the cup that fits under the group head. Anything taller than a normal teacup is too tall.
Would recommend for people who enjoy real fresh coffee on a budget!

Excerpt: First off the Technical Details (copied off of Amazon) 15 Bar pump pressure Traditional milk frother Professional filter holder and tamper Removeable 1 Litre water tank Built to accommodate full-size cappuccino or 2 espresso cups First of all we bought this coffee maker for our home!
Excerpt: this is very good and i like my milk to be frothy which it does this great but dont get the milk to hot or it will burn i have a few delonghi items and all are very good price and does what it says
Summary: This is the first coffee machine i have ever bought and for me it is solely used for making espresso, which is fantastic. If you want to make a taller drink than an espresso then you have to start using several different cups as nothing bigger then an espresso cup will fit under it.
Summary: I was initially dubious about the quality of coffee this machine would produce - how pleasantly surprised I was. If you follow the instructions and follow them to the word you will not be dissapointed.
Brill Coffee, the taste Soo Much Better and Soo Quiet

Summary: I've had a shiny Morphy Richards Espresso coffee maker for four or five years and when it broke one morning I was distraught! I needed an inexpensive coffee machine, but didn't want to sacrifice the quality of the coffee of course.
