Rated 5 out of 5Â by JakAtack Quality machine for a first timer
I bought this machine so I could try making cappuccinos for my husband since he spends too much money buying them everyday before work. I've been using it for a week now and we both love it. The instruction booklet was so easy and helpful with explaining how to make an expresso or cappuccino which is great since I had no idea how to make either. The machine is sturdy, the milk frother works well, and once you turn it on it only takes a minute to heat up and then maybe 30 seconds to drip 2-4 cups of expresso. Don't know how well it will hold up in the long run yet, but so far very pleased with my purchase!

I reviewed several reviews for an espresso/cappuccino machine. The reviews on this machine were the best. I was skeptical since the price was so low. I was very surprised how wonderful this machine really is and I highly recommend it! We love our Capresso! Delicious espresso and cappuccino! We have no issues with the Capresso.
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!

Because this machine has a very small water reservoir, most of the espresso tasted burned even if you stop the brewing when the cup is at the right line. My unit began leaking water after the second use as well. Do yourself a favor and get an espresso maker with a larger water reservoir that automatically stops brewing after 1 or 2 shots. I exchanged this item for the another espresso maker which was just a little bit more expensive but had a larger water reservoir and automatic buttons, and now I am a happy camper.
