Summary: This is a Beautifully made Machine that looks Incredible in My Kitchen! If you Read Up on the Operation, & you've never Used one before, It works very Well! I found going to UTube & Paying attention, helped to get the running of the System Down! Hardest Part is "The Buttons"! Learn When to Use them & Pay Attention to the Light Signals! Get a Liquid Thermometer for Frothing the Milk! Imperative! GoodLuck!
Summary: This machine produces excellent coffee and rich frothing, better than much more expensive machines that I have owned in the past. If you enjoy drinking cappuccinos, this is the machine that, for its price and quality, I strongly recommend.
Summary: If you can't or don't want to spend $$$$ on an espresso maker, I recommend this one. It takes a few turns for the coffee holder to loosen, but after that it is easy to use and makes very good espresso drinks. We use it every morning.
Summary: So, we are not "foodies" or "hipsters" we are just a couple that like to drink our latte's, cappuccino, and espresso. This machine is very easy to clean, use, and it does seem to work well. I read a number of reviews on espresso machines, and they were generally pretty harsh. I am not sure what the bar is here, but for the household who is not selling coffee out of their kitchen window I am pretty certain this unit will suffice.
Summary: I've had several espresso machines over the years. Some were expensive and a few, like this one, were inexpensive. This machine makes better espresso than the more expensive machines I've owned. This machine is truly a no-brainer. I start my day with several espressos and avoid most chain coffee espressos. This inexpensive machine makes wonderful espressos with lots of rich crema floating on top. I'm savoring my morning espressos more because they taste so good.
