My husband and I received an Esio as a gift from my folkas a few months ago. I was excited when I saw that it is able to do both hot AND cold beverages instantly. The picture on the box shows a steaming cup of coffee next to a frosty glass of lemonade, which is also the reason that my dad picked it out for us. Unfortunately, my excitement turned into disappointment as soon as I set the thing up. While it's true that it can instantly dispense either hot or cold liquid at the touch of a button, in order to switch between hot and cold beverages (for example, between the lemonade and coffee beverages that are included with the machine), you must open up the device and switch the beverage pack each time. The convenience of going between hot and cold beverages is almost completely cancelled out by that hassle. I don't know anyone who likes to drink piping hot lemonade, and if you're going to change the cartridge every time, you might as well just keep a pitcher of lemonade in the fridge and save the electricity of keeping all that water cold anyway. I suppose that it would be convenient for a large family with members who like both hot tea and iced tea, or both regular coffee and iced coffee, but the "cold" option is overkill for my husband and I.

After using up the initial beverage packs that were included with the machine, I have been as of yet unable to locate refill packs at any store. According to the Esio website, they are available at Walmart, but I've visited at least four Walmarts and have been unable to find them. They are reasonably priced on the Esio website, but I am unable to actually purchase them.

Yes, even though I was aware that the Esio company had gone into bankruptcy, I could not resist purchasing one of these machines at the remarkable discount prices being offered. My first impression... this thing is big. It fits on a standard counter top leaving no space to the front or back and little space under overhanging cabinents. My second impression... this thing is heavy. Shipping costs would have been prohibitive had it not been for Amazon Prime or Free Shipping offers. My third impression... this thing is beautifully built and designed. It works perfectly as described. After about an hour warm/cold up time, I was able to draw an ice-cold lemonade at the touch of a button and then, with a quick change of pac and touching two buttons, a hot cup of coffee. While I don't want to run it constantly as it does use a bit of electricity to heat and cool the reservoirs, I will certainly put it to good use at parties.

My fiance received an Essio hot and cold beverage system from his place of employment as a Christmas gift. At first it seemed neat, but we discovered almost immediately that nearly all of the beverages made for this system contain the artificial sweetener sucralose. The juice blends, sports drinks, crystal light drinks, and many of the teas all use sucralose instead of sugar. Neither of us can stomach the taste of artificial sweeteners, so this system is completely useless to us.
After doing a small amount of research it also seems that this company flopped, and that the refill packs must be ordered online for the most part, and will likely only be available for a few more years.
If you want a beverage maker go with the Keurig instead.
Personally, I think I'll stick to boiling water for my tea.

I'm not hot or cold for this item,but I did buy it because it services hot and cold drinks.The Esio beverage is just okay.The cold water temp should have been set a little colder so that there be no need for ice I your drink.But if you have the space and want a hot and
cold water dispenser this is for you.As far as the drink goes you only get a package of County Time Lemonade which did seem as
good as get in the pizza shop,it has a strange after this and the coffee package that could with I can tell you how it taste I do not drink
coffee.It is a good buy to make drink foe when don't anything to drink in the fridge or when that picture of drink that you made is not
chilling.So the bottom line it just 50/50
