It took me a little while to get the right mix of grind and volume of water but now I'm really happy and get a consistently good

  • Summary: I've owned this a few weeks now. It took me a little while to get the right mix of grind and volume of water but now I'm really happy and get a consistently good taste. I invested in a metal weighted tamper in place of the plastic measure/tamper it comes with and I'm not regretting the decision.

Dualit coffee machine

DG, Amazon
17 December 2013
  • Summary: I received this as a birthday present to replace my £50 Morphy Richards coffee machine that died (to be fair it lasted 4 years). First the bad - it is fairly noisy and you'd struggle if making more that 2 cups. The good - Once you get into the routine of warming the cup, steaming the milk etc the coffee is superb and it's easy to keep clean. It looks the part too. Going through way too much coffee at the moment!

A great investment, the type of beans do matter!

Mister Man, Amazon
30 May 2013
  • Summary: I have owned this for coming up to 2 years now and I am very happy with it: Good: - you save thousands on high street coffee. Think about it, an average of 220 working days/year in the UK and say you have two latte's daily. - as already mentioned makes a good espresso . - streamed milk is great skimmed or semi milk. - fairly easy to clean, but I do so every day. Wash the basket, handle, drip tray, steamer bits and dry in rack. It doesnt take that long.

Works really well - with a few small flaws

Mr. J. Back "JonB", Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: We bought the Dualit after much research to replace our beloved - if slightly ugly - 10 year old Gaggia Tebe. Initially, we bought the wonderful looking - & significantly more expensive - KitchenAid machine, however our excitement truned to dismaywhen one of its boilers failed to work. It was returned & our gaze fell elsewhere. The Dualit is relatively inexpensive & is relatively good looking, in a generic sort of way.

A Solution to the filter clogging problem

Stevie "Stevie", Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: It's good machine producing excellent espresso but I was having problems with the filter clogging. I've solved this by washing out the grouts then putting the filter back on the machine and running the pressured water through it again and the grouts come to the surface. I often do this again before filling the filter holder with coffee from my Dualit Burr grinder when making my morning espresso. This seems to have solved the problem and is not too much hassle.

the coffee lovers choice

Foo, Amazon
8 March 2011
  • Summary: I've never bothered to write a review of anything on-line before. I've got through 3 different espresso machines in my life, and until this one decided they were the kind of thing you just accepted didn't last very long under heavy domestic use. Others always died because I was packing too much coffee into the brewhead to get a stronger, more intense cup.

The Route To Espressivo Happiness.

Mr. S. J. Popeley "Simon.", Amazon
11 April 2010
  • Summary: Hello! I've had the Espressivo for about two and a half weeks, after months of agonising over the purchase. I had a budget of around £150, not the most serious amount of money, but enough to want to make sure you get the right machine. I was initially attracted to the Espressivo by it's looks, then found the 'Which' award, and the fact that John Lewis stocked it reassuring.

Good for the price

Lorraine, Amazon
5 January 2010
  • Summary: When I first bought this machine I was happy with it, then it starting playing up and I thought it was going wrong having read some of the reviews. It kept not dispensing the coffee, and exploding the coffee up the wall when removing the handle from the machine. I kept poking the filter with a pin thinking it was getting blocked etc etc (coffee was ground by starbucks!). I bought different coffee - problem solved !!
