Summary: I bought the Espressivo coffee machine and was trying to work out your manual. On page 6 and 7 you state 'get to know your machine' labelling the various components. However, you only number the components on page 6, whereas those on page 7 are listed without numbers. To add confusion, when describing how to froth milk on page 13, you refer to parts by number, yet there is no indication from page 6 and 7 what these parts refer to.
Summary: We have had this for 14 months - 1 month over the return date and are disappointed to inform buyers that the milk frother no longer works. It has been a great little machine and we've been dedicated to cleaning it regularly as the manual states - we flush the coffee filter and the milk frother after every coffee and clean the entire machine on a regular basis.
Great coffee but you need to use filters between the coffee grounds and the holder.

Summary: I have had a Dualit toaster for at least 15 years. Very well made, used daily and only twice since new had to change an element...fantastic! So, I thought I would buy a Dualit coffee maker expecting the same quality. It is well made and does make extremely tasty coffee ( I grind Illy Beans) but there are some issues with it. They don't mention when you buy it that it's highly recommended to always use a paper filter in the ground coffee cup.
Summary: When I first bought this machine I wrote: This is the first espresso maker of this type I've bought (I've got a stove top) and having read loads of reviews of many different machines was pretty fearful of making a bad choice by not taking account of some important nuance. The main reason I plumped for this one were the abilities to: a) make several cups, b) put large cups under the spout for large lattes, c) take a pod or ground coffee, d) great value and e) nice design...
