Gourmet Coffee Shop Quality @ Home

  • Summary: I took the plunge on the Exprelia when it first came out on the market. It is a wonderful machine with easy 1-touch cappuccino and cafe' lungo. If you want the coffee to be a little hotter, just warm the mug ahead of time. I pour the creme at the bottom of the mug before hitting the Cafe Lungo button so the crema at the top is kept in tact. My only gripe is how often I need to refill the water with distilled water. However, I guess I am enjoying it too much...

Incredible Coffee Machine!

  • Summary: After researching many super-automatic espresso machines, I saw a review for the Exprelia and was convinced. Many of the super-automatic milk systems are average at best and don't provide a firm, frothy finish. This machine does and so much more. It is adjustable in all sorts of ways from grind consistency, strength, temperature, and more. With the push of a button, you can leave the machine to make your coffee perfectly without having to attend to it at all.
  • Pros: milk island gives a great frothy head, high tech, beautiful, smooth delicious coffee, ease of use
  • Cons: needs emptied/water refilled frequently

  • Summary: It's probably not overrated enough. It's features are great. It makes the best Espresso/Cappuccino I've ever had. Simple to use. Simple to operate once reading the instructions and getting to know the machine.

Overall worth the purchase

  • Summary: Love the machine, especialy the Crema. The only issue we have had is with misfiring. When we select espresso, from time to time, the beans grind, and no espresso. Flavor has also been a bit inconsistant as well.

  • Summary: Great easy of use. I make a cappuccino or two every morning, but the drink is not as hot as it could be. I have set the machine to the hottest temperature but it is still just luke warm.

fabulous coffee and easy to use

  • Summary: We are amazed by this machine: the quality of materials used, the well-thought out engineering and, of course, the final product - the espresso or latte or whatever type of coffee drink that can be chosen with the push of one button. The machine fits easily on our kitchen counter, large but without looking clumsy as so many espresso makers look. What a joy!

Good machine, arrived on expected day.

  • Summary: First usage has been good. I am used to a Bean to Cup system for many years and this is good. The coffee and milk are hotter than my last machine and it is easy to use. It may be a little slower than my old Delonghi but so far the milk foam for cappuchino is very good.
