This review is based on a latte a day for about a month now.
-Customer service was great: one part got jammed during shipment (despite how extraordinarily well the manufacturer had it packed inside the box!). I called and a person answered the phone right away who helped me figure out the problem.
-Thus far, the espresso comes out hot with a great crema, and my milk is also nice and hot (from 120-160 Fahrenheit depending on how you want it) and well-frothed (meaning microfoam(!) not seafoam). With the frother it's essential to keep the full rubber head (meaning the fat part) submerged in the milk to get it hot (including the intake air vents on the side).
Bottom line: I am very impressed that this quality comes at such a great price.
And my current thoughts in January, 2012: this machine is still going strong. At one point it began to leak due to a clog in the espresso filter but unscrewing it and cleaning it solved that problem easily. This machine is one of my best purchases!
When it was working for the first number of years, it made good shots, with good crema, and the (rigid) steam head worked OK to froth milk. The basket was pressurized, so it overcame the bad grinds we were getting from the chopper grinder we had. We mostly used bottled D.I. water, and only flushed it with a mild vinegar solution a couple times a year. The pump always seemed to provide enough pressure, though the shots were never super hot. The most we ran through it regularly was 2-4 shots, but occasionally we pulled 8-10, letting it heat up again between every couple. My wife ran it dry a few times, but it seemed to bounce back and keep going, despite our lack of maintenance or care.
It's a smallish unit and looks pretty good. We liked the all stainless exterior with easy to clean parts and exteriors. The plastic tamper worked OK, but not great, and the stainless cups aren't the highest grade material (i.e. they stained, which meant they were releasing chrome into our drinks.) The water reservoir is an OK size also, but we had to always remember to fill it just about every day. All of this was a good compromise for the very small footprint, low running noise, and ease of use.
All worked pretty well, with few complaints until about 4 or 5 months ago; when it didn't turn on morning for a few hours. Then we started having seal leaks (splattering grinds all over the place) about once a week.Read more ›
One of my daughters is visually impaired and she can work the machine and clean it with no problems.
Assembly was easy, cleanup is easy, and making three different beverages in seconds is a breeze, too. We have three completely different tastes so we've managed quite a few different drinks. I make sugar free soy lattes using Soy Slender and sugar free DaVinci flavors. We've frothed skim, 2%, whole and soy milks of every type. Even heavy whipping cream and half & half froth perfectly.
The only issue we had was that one time we tamped the espresso a little too firmly and nothing would come out. If you tamp lightly, you'll have no problem at all and the crema is absolutely superb!
As for the reviewer that said their espresso was watery, if you use a fine ground espresso, that definately won't be a problem. The two-serving filter makes a great double shot, but if you try to make more than that, I can see how you could end up with something watery. The drip tray does need emptying once in a while, but that's the same with every espresso maker I've ever used.
I DEFINATELY recommend this machine!!
In the end, the price seems good and the machine looks great but, and this is a huge BUT... you will end up drinking the most expensive cups of coffe (about $25/cup, not including all the wasted coffee, water and time) in your life after the machine stops producing coffee after 10 cups.Read more ›
