Really good coffee


Very pleased with this little machine, doesn't take up a lot of space, looks good on the worktop and it makes lovely coffee. Only criticism is that it is not always as hot as I would like.

Too small for me


I bought this, and never used it. I cannot tell you the quality of the coffee or the speed, noise or crema ability. I cannot even tell you if it worked because it never got as far as being plugged in before being returned.
