Summary: Like this machine - easy to use and clean. Only quibble is that coffee does not come out strong enough for my husband's liking - so he has the first cup and I have the second as I don't like it so strong. If you're looking for espresso, i'd look elsewhere but froths milk really well for cappucino which is my favourite.
Summary: For the price, it's obviously not going to give you a flat white like your favourite independent, East London, bestached, barista, BUT for a home made espresso, it's pretty good. The milk steamer could do with a bit vertical movement to allow the milk to turn easier, but holding your milk jug in more creative ways will overcome this. All in all, very happy with this machine.
Summary: I find myself somewhat disappointed with this product. When it works it makes OK but not brilliant coffee. The machine is prone to leaking from the coffee holder. (maybe I need to be more careful wiping off the rubber seal after charging with coffee) I have used ESP pods in this machine and encountered a 25% failure rate with only plain water being pumped through. At the price of ESP pods, I find this unacceptable and do not use them any more.
Summary: Great coffee everytime, easy to operate and keep clean. Cheapest price around for a quality product and brand. We also used double points to get it even cheaper and delivered to our local tesco express.
