We had to return this espresso machine. It leaked water after making the espresso--so much that it filled up another cup of very diluted espresso. I've been making espresso at home for 5 years and had decided to upgrade to this brand. Very disappointed---guess I'll stick with my cheaper espresso machine until it quits.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by babydollJD Great little machine!
I purchased this machine from kohls.com and could not be happier. It is easy to operate and it does pull an excellent espresso shot with good crema. Please note that the initial set up/system flush does take SEVERAL minutes. The instruction manual makes no mention of this fact. I got discouraged at first and started to think that the machine was defective, but it did eventually heat up and I was able to flush the coffee port and the steam mechanism. After the initial flushing, the machine warmed up quickly and, after now using it for several days, I can say that it works nicely. I am very pleased that the machine comes with 2 coffee "filters", one for a nice double shot and one for a single. It also comes with a convenient measuring spoon/tamper and a de-scaling product. The machine is easy to clean and does not take up a lot of counter space. The milk steamer/frother works beautifully as well - I use a very small stainless steel pitcher I purchase online. No more expensive Starbucks for me! I buy Lavazza Italian coffee beans online and grind them in an inexpensive blade grinder on "espresso" grind and they work perfectly in this machine. I hope you will enjoy the machine as much as I do.
