Summary: I ws so happy to get this-made great espresso, easy to use, then one day after about a month or two...lost steam...would only brew about half...ended up throwing it out...shame-really liked it.
Summary: The Kalorik EXP 25022 800W 4-cup espresso maker is stylish and functional but not top of the line. It makes a tasty espresso but the cap gasket popped out in the first three uses and cannot be reattached without special equipment.
Summary: Mine was a gift. The first time I used it the gasket got sucked into the water holder, and it had to be fished out with a pair of pliers. Forget about foaming the milk; it won't happen. All it did was splatter all over the sik and my hand. Didn't feel good!
Summary: The main point in this coffeemaker's favor is that the coffee it makes tastes good. But it's rather an inconvenient PITA to make it. The maker seems fairly sturdily built (for a cheap piece of crap like they all are) and it heats quickly.
Summary: Nice design, well-made, easy to clean, makes mediocre moka (not real espresso) quickly, and is very quiet. Not enough pressure to produce any "crema", and doesn't heat the water sufficiently. Here is what I found that helps a bit: (1) grind the coffee extremely fine, tamp and re-tamp hard.
Summary: This product received a top review from good housekeeping so I felt safe purchasing it. It produces fairly decent quality espresso for my purpose of making cafe mochas. It is better than mediocre coffee shop brew, but not as good as my favorite places.
Great for beginners, but the quality of the espresso is not good.

Summary: This machine is great for making concentrated coffee, but is not high enough pressure to produce crema. The quality of the espresso is terrible but the machine is great. It makes great tea. Just open a teabag and pour it in the brew basket.
