Rated 5 out of 5Â by Brandy1982 I can finally make those yummy coffee drinks
I am saving so much money not going to Starbucks!! I can make my favorite drinks myself. It took a few tries to perfect it... But now I can copy all the drinks just perfectly! I would recommend an aluminum container of some sort to steam the milk in but as long as you have that, you can feel the container to see if the milk is hot enough. I always steam the milk first. By the time I am done, I can switch it over to the coffee/espresso and it is almost instant. I love this product! It is worth it for the money!! I would highly recommend it to anyone just thinking about it but spending a lot of money at the coffee shops for the same drinks!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by kirstene Good for espresso
Makes good espresso, but the frother does not work very well or heat up the milk!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Momto7kiddos Loving this little machine!
I have been using this espresso maker everyday (many days more than once) for the past month. It works great. It only took me a couple of times to figure out how to make a cappuccino that was exactly (maybe better) than those I have always purchased at the coffee shop (for way too much $$). For the money I wasn't expecting this to work quite so well, so I am happily surprised. I did have to purchase a small frothing pitcher which works great for steaming the milk. It takes a couple tries to figure how much water you need to have the right amount for coffee and being able to leave enough for the steam for the milk - but it is so fun to do! This little machine is great!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by disappointedy This product would have been a good deal if it had not arrived with multiple breaks in the plastic. If fact the whole machine was split completely in half.
I returned it with no problem but I feel that charging me postage for a broken item is unfair. I will not order online for an electric product again.
And I would warn others that postage on a broken item DOES not get refunded. Unfair ? Yes I think so. I shopped for a coffee pot at another store.
