Great proper espresso at home
Easy to assemble and use, pretty much straight forward instruction. We are now enjoying proper espresso at home . Great value coffeemaker, simple ...and makes cappuccino too. Finally I can show off my pretty espresso cups. Regretting only why I did not purchase it long ago. It seams that hubby will start to use it a ditch horrible instant for good.
Compact and easy to use
This machine is light and compact, but makes a lot of noise! Used with strong Italian coffee, it is perfect for 2 cups...an espresso and latte in our house! The milk heater/frother is a nice addition too. Note you need to use your small coffee cups with this machine, standard mugs wont fit in the machine if that's what you're looking for.
We have never owned a coffee/espresso machine before, so when we were sent this to review we were quite excited to give it ago! The machine was easy to put together and instructions were clear on how to use it. It seems pretty sturdy and well made. You can only use smaller cups/mugs and we used ground coffee. It would have been good if the machine came with a little starter pack of coffee and a small milk frothing jug. The end result was very good and we enjoyed a lovely drink of coffee. We will continue to use this. Thanks Ocado!
Good little machine
I was sent this to review. I already own another coffee machine that uses pods, but the environmental impact of that bothers me. I would like to make this my main coffee machine, and a lot of the time it would be fine. There are just a few small things that I would change. The low height of the coffee machine is too low to fit a normal size mug under, even if you remove the drip tray. The machine comes with two pieces that you put the coffee into, depending on whether you want a double or single espresso, but making multiple coffees is much easier with my other machine that uses pods. The milk frother on this machine works well. You need a small jug with a handle on to put the milk in. My dad insisted he could do it straight into a small mug and managed to burn his fingers on the steam. The low level of the steam outlet contributed to his difficulties. I have always used a 250ml Pyrex jug and had no problems. If you use good coffee, the machine makes s lovely drink.
good neat design
This is a nicely designed coffee machine, haven't had this type for last 15 years so happy to try again to see how, the old style ones have come on. This one is far more sturdy and well made than the last one I had. Having said that it would have to do some good coffee with ease, as have been Using a nespresso machine for last 10 years, and love their ease and simplicity. Any how, bought some ground coffee, I thought we would like and gave it a go.. easy to use, takes only and few minutes and easy to clean out, we already had a small jug for milk which was handy as didn't come with it. Really enjoyed getting the milk the way I like it. Easy to clean, doesn't take up much room on work space. Not sure it will replace my current nespresso machine, but it is a good alternative and I was very happy to try it. We will be keeping in reserve.
great little machine
Makes lovely coffee. It took a few reads of the instructions to get used to it but its very simple to use and v quick. Easier to wash up than a cafetière. You need the fine espresso ground coffee to make proper espresso but the all purpose coffee tasted ok too. Instructions say you can also use coffee pods. Its light and neat so doesnt take up much space on the work top or would be easy to pop in a cupboard. Love it!
