Not an espresso machine

Fred, Amazon
26 November 2014
  • Summary: It makes drip coffee and just happens to have a handle. I drink espresso at home and couldn't take the drip coffee at work anymore so I bought this cheap "espresso" machine thinking it would be better than drip. I bought espresso ground coffe just for it at work, it ends up giving me drip coffee.

Extremely odd design...not happy

brandywyne, Amazon
2 September 2014
  • Summary: I am baffled at the design of this thing...the steam wand only works while the espresso is brewing?? So if it's not done steaming, and the espresso is done brewing, oh well...or pour in more water and let it run through the espresso basket again?

Premature failure

Richard M., Newegg
21 August 2014
  • Summary: Used this espresso maker on a daily basis for the past year and a half - but this morning it failed to heat the water. As of yesterday I would have given it a very high rating (4-5), but 1 1/2 years of life is just ridiculous. Naturally it has a 1 year warranty...
  • Pros: Was great for the price (while it worked)
  • Cons: Premature failure frother is useless

  • Summary: It works great, it ttok a bit longer to arrive but it was worth it, it makes great espresso, it is used at my office so it doesn't need to make hundreds of coffee.

Hate it.

Ferit Eren Beskardes "e'eN", Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: I totally hate it. This can not do any espresso by any chance. You can use it for filter coffee only. Does not make any pressure at all to make espresso, or cappuccino! Don't buy, spend a few dollars more and buy the more expensive one.

Has short longevity

Butch the DM, brandsmartusa.com
5 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I've had this little machine a little under 2 years and is fine for the price. However, the filler cap now just free spins and I can no longer use it. The service dept of Delonghi was of no help. I used to have a Krups of same size and it lasted over 10 years..
  • Pros: Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Quick Brewing
  • Cons: Cap Gets Stuck, Unreliable

Tip: Open frother until hissing, then close & extraction starts 18-24 sec.

paypalcoffee, Ebay
6 February 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Portafilter has a flip tap to hold filter in so you don't pull the filter out after tamping. Easy cleanup. Cons: Doesn't come with tamper. Only one button operation. Milk frother too short. Details: Machine sprays if portafilter cups aren't directly under portafilter.
