Reviews and Problems with Dualit ESPRESSIVO COFFEE MACHINE

Summary: I really wanted to like this machine because of it's compact design and smart looks but after 2 weeks I had to send it back. Despite using a pressurized portafilter the Duatit makes a pretty decent espresso, but even with the supplied paper filters it gets blocked all too easily. This resulted in reduced flow and quickly killed the pump. Went for a Gaggia Classic instead and wasn't disappointed.
Summary: I struggled to make this work without leaking. The coffee it makes is nice if slightly weak, but coming from an old filter machine it just didn't seem worth the extra work and cleaning time, so I returned it.
Disappointing and fiddly to maintain; good froth though

Summary: First, the good news: if you like cappuccinos and lattes, this machine does great steam-frothing. There is ample space for a large mug under the frothing spout, and there is a good long supply of steam. But the bad news: I have owned this machine for three months now, and I use it every day. I find the strength of the espresso liquor it produces is just weak compared to my previous machine (a Gaggia, which sadly broke).
