We din't find any review online when we purchased it. But we r extremely happy with it.
Tip: use cold milk every time- you'll get super froth !!
I and my hubby enjoy yummy coffee every single day :)
we r very very happy with it. Its great for its price.
This is what I look forward to in the evening.....A picker-upper!
It takes 1:30 to 2:00 minutes to heat the water up to steam or start the coffee..
The only issue i have is the Frother doesn't really move much. Also that the catch basin you pretty much have to wipe out, woulda been better with a separate dish or something.
It is very easy to clean, Fast(ish), and i suggest to get a thermometer when frothing.. not that it is inconsistent but you can't really move the cup around to evenly heat. Unless you use a small cup.
even if you have never made coffee before this item will pretty much teach you! worth it!
Looks nice, can't same the same for it's performance. Leaked steam from front of machine since new. Returned it three days later.
This is my 3rd expresso machine, it is just as good as the other 2 that costs me over $100.00. What makes this one to be as good are better is it only cost me $30! Awesome!
You get what you pay for. It does loose steam mid-way through the brew, acting like it's going to blow up, just like the cheap Mr. Coffee one does. It's also very finicky about the size of the grounds; in order for it to brew at a reasonable rate the grounds have to be just right. And as one reviewer mentioned the angle of the steamer wand is not helpful unless you are using a very short cup to do the frothing. I end up utilizing several different sized cups whenever I make a latte. Otherwise, it does the job and you get a latte with decent froth. But again, you get what you pay for.
I really was expecting a cheap plastic espresso maker that would break immediately. Was I surprised. This is one tough little coffee maker. It heats up and makes 4 cups in less than 5 minutes. The steamer works fine but does not move around. You must bring the milk to it rather than swing it into the milk. A good, heavy and solid machine at a great price.
This espresso maker is basic. It's not heavy and solid; it's mostly plastic. That being the case, it works and it works well! Nothing fancy, but it does what it says and feeds the need!
the previous one..[Mr Coffee] had problems with hard water..the heating unit would not use all the water in the container..called the Co..they told me that model is not produced any more!..but all n' all it was a better product than the one I have now.."Premium"..sorry
I put in the cold water to this machine and it is already dripping.. the water is still cold man.
however I was able to pull the shot after waiting awhile.
then I steam it successfully too.
After that I try to make another one and the front started leaking the steam instead of hot water...
going to return it.
We are very happy and grateful for the good and qucik delivery...thanks so much
First coffee machine like this I ever used. Really easy operation. Works like a champ. Love it. Would recommend this machine to anyone. Never used a more expensive unit, and don't see why I would. Buy this, you won't be sorry.
Foam nozzle makes amateurs into professional baristas.
This is my first stand alone espresso maker. Still new but seems to function as expected. Love espresso so this is just fine for me. Takes up small amount of counter space. Thanks and see you again soon, shopping on-line is the only way to go for me. Thanks for the great service.
It was just what i expected and ordered. It does emit steam from the top of the water resevoir, but it does not impede it's performance. i shall look for another model as i got what I paid for.
We needed a "starter" espresso machine and this one is great basic easy to use functions and it gets the job done with ease. Definitely worth the money.
Its not 100 % equivalent to Starbucks (prob because I have to make it myself lol) but overall I would suggest this product to everyone!!!
Works well, very fast, easy to use.
I've own several espresso makers that cost under $70, and this is by far the cheapest at $26, but you can also tell. The "basket" that holds the coffee feels like it doesn't hold well (although it does seal air tight enough to make yummy espresso!) and the basket arm being off to the side means it takes up slightly more space than it needs to and is also awkward to attach to the maker, but you get used to it. Like all inexpensive espresso makers, you must take great care not to cross-thread the water container cap! I have never used the steam spout (I drink espresso black) but it is completely immobile, which I have neever seen and looks like that may make it awkward to steam milk and force you to use the glass "cup" that comes with it. All other makers I've bought the steam spout swiveled for ease of use and you could switch to a metal steam cup (some people perfer this so they don't have to fear breaking the glass "cup"), that being said the little glass "cup" is wicked durable considering how thin the glass is. I've dropped it on laminate, banged it like crazy with metal spoons, I'm a big clutz so I've put it to the test and it passed.
All in all, good product for the price! I live in the mountains with hard water so even using twice-filtered water in my espresso machines and cleaning them regularly, they still die within a year or two because of mineral build up. So these cheap machines are my love affair ;-)
Oh and I use this maker several times a day because I'm a java junkie
