Really?

 

none

This came not working..the company doesnt have a repair contract till January, they don't even make espresso makers currently. So no I have to pay for the return to newegg

Consumer review by:

spend the extra money

 

For the money I think it's ok. However, I wish I would of spent a little more money for a better one. You get what you pay for. Seems to be built well. It takes 10 mins. to get a double shot and to steam the milk.

does its job, was very cheap

Is very very slow and loud. Sometimes the steam doesn't work so I have to use the espresso maker to build up the pump so the steam will work. It's kind of fussy

Thumbs up!

 

We were a little worried about ordering this, after reading the reviews, but at that price it was worth a try. So far, so good! Does everything we need, and with a good bean (freshly ground), this makes a very nice shot, with real crema. We mainly...

Makes a perfectly acceptable shot ; Has regular portafilter, not the "crema-enhancing" type ; Small footprint ; Easy to clean ; Steams milk nicely ; Heats up fast ; top heats up, so you can warm your cups

portafilter needs to be removed for steaming ; Regular mug doesn't fit under the portafilter ; shiny surface is easily scratched ; make sure you run a couple of tanks of water through the machine, without coffee in the filter! Our's had some weird...

Mine Works Great

 

I can't believe I got a brand new, nice looking, functioning pump espresso machine for $29 bucks. If any problems come u with it I will write a follow up review. But so far it's great. Keep in mind that making good espresso is an art, or at least, an...

I was reluctant to buy because of several bad reviews. However, knowing how good NewEgg is about returns, and also having read what great support Kalorik provides, I decided to take a chance. The main factor was also that there was an additional $20...

It's pretty loud, but from what I've read online this is true of most pump espresso machines. Even some mid-range to high-end machines are said to be fairly loud

Consumer review by:

It's almost free

 

The key to a good coffee is practice and experience, I used to work as a server in a hotel and I had the chance to work with the most expensive machines out there, even then it took me more than 6 months to make a decent espresso, only with time I got...

Very good looking and shiny out of the box, It feels like a sturdy machine, good to high quality material, thirty dollars!!!if you don't like it, gift it, everyone would think it was more than one fifty

I feel sorry for this machine getting a lot of bad reviews, I don't think it deserves it. I had nothing but decent to good quality coffee with it, see thoughts ; My next purchase will be an Espressione 1385, I'm just waiting for the price to drop to 2...

Not working at all

 

none

didn't work even once. I decided to return it within one hour after I got it. Poor quality

Kalorik

 

didnt purchase this

Kalorik products are just not built well it seems my coffee maker lasted a month

Consumer review by:

DO NOT BUY

 

I called Kalorik customer support, and as soon as I gave the (rather nice) phone support guy the item serial number, he told me "return it. trust me, we've discontinued this model because of all the problems associated with it." As someone who works...

None

Simply put, the espresso maker doesn't work. The release won't let water from the reservoir actually go into the machine, so it makes a terrible noise and then smokes (which was how we realized something was terribly wrong)

cheapy + good espresso machine!

 

on the 1st week of owning the machine, i once made 5 shots of espresso. since this is the first espresso machine i ever owned, i had a bit of learning. but once you get the hang of it, it's not so bad. i've pulled single & double shots and they are all...

super cheap, makes decent espresso, with a serviceable crema; i almost always do double shots, either to drink as espresso, americano, or cappuccino

none so far
