Good size, excellent performance.

  • Summary: We bought this device as a replacement for a "full bells and whistles" machine we bought in Europe and used in Australia. The voltage thing killed us and we didn't have enough budget to fully replace it. To be honest I prefer spending the 3 minutes it takes to build my own Latte and am even trying to do the foam art... to mixed successes. This machine is solid.

GREAT DEAL !

  • Summary: The warning lights for NO WATER and NO BEANS are side-by-side as are the lights for SCALING and PUCK CONTAINER FULL.
  • Pros: Adjusted the grind as directed. Makes great espresso and after adjusting the water volume, the Americana quite good also. The Saeco distributor helped me with my one 'con' in a matter of minutes.
  • Cons: The lights for "scaling" and for "Puck Container Full" were confusing to me.

Look no more you find it

  • Summary: My wife and I purchased this machine as a Christmas present for ourselves. So far no issues. After months of research through this site and watching web videos we decided to take the punt and we are glad that we settled with the Syntia Focus. The one push buttons are easy to use. Making a nice fresh hot cup of coffee before and after work is actually easier and quicker than boiling the kettle.

Best Gift

  • Summary: This a great product, I received it as a group gift on VenTribe.com, was little hesitant to use it because I'm not really an espresso guy, but I've become a convert. Easy to set up, easy to use, IT CLEANS ITSELF!! all you have to do is make sure you empty out the coffee grounds. Love it, cant live without it, and it looks cool too.

Finally a product that works!

  • Summary: I love coffee! My first coffee machine that I owned was by Kitchenaid. It was great, but the only problem was that it did not heat coffee!! It always turned out cold whatever I did. Later, I got a Breville Espresso machine for a couple of months. I didn't like it because I had problems with the coffee heat as well. So, after dealing with these two espresso machines and having the same problem, I gave up.

  • Summary: This machine is sooooo awesome. I bought it refurbished from another site. I had/have a Starbuck's Barista machine that I've been using for 10 years. It works great and makes decent lattes, but is suffering from age. My husband bought me another machine for Christmas that was TERRIBLE from a company that was TERRIBLE. We returned it and bought this one at a one-day sale site. From the moment I plugged it in, I knew I liked it.

Solid Machine w/ Perfect Espresso Crema

Joelen, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: Years ago, I worked part-time at Starbucks as a barista. Even before my Starbucks days, I managed an espresso bar in college. I know my coffee/espresso drinks and I've worked with some hardcore machines. After I left my barista jobs, I figured getting the same quality of espresso drinks at home would be hard to do. The machines I've purchased to replicate what I used on the job fell pretty short in terms of power, speed and quality.
