Good machine for newbies like me

 

I have had my machine for almost a year, and have been very pleased. With no Starbucks on the way to work, I needed a way to get my daily latte. With no experience in espresso making, I did a lot of web research before I purchased this unit (based on ...

Does most of the work for you. Good features for the price.

Noisy start up. Bean hopper is not removable. Steam wand hangs too low.

Goodbye Starbucks

 

First, I'd like to plug the site where I ordered the machine: wholelattelove.com. I was very impressed with the site quality. They have pro and consumer reviews, videos of different machines, feature comparisons, faqs, etc. Plus the selection of the ...

Price (compared to other superautomatics), convenience

None so far

Ever Closer to Coffee Nirvana

 

Previously my experience with coffee has led me through burr grinding and home roasting. I've always felt (and even more so now) that the only area in which my quest for the best brew was lacking was in the equipment. I was tired of buying new machines...

Super easy cleaning, awesome brew, quiet, fully automatic

Manual and video could use extra attention

Makes good coffee but can be quirky.

 

We got one of these for our small office and although it makes great coffee easily, it has some drawbacks. One of the most serious is the inability to remove the coffee hopper to change the coffee. We would like to switch to decaf in the afternoon but ...

Makes good coffee easily.

Bean hopper not easily removable. Grinder gets clogged a lot and not easy to clean.

ESPRESSO READY TO GO

 

Last week I joined this community to write some reviews (and of course read a lot of them) about mac ...

Fresh aroma when the machine is being used.Easy digital display

No cup warmer.Manual lack of instructions

Consumer review by:

Long wait for service

 

I made about one cup per day on average and mine stopped working three months after purchasing it. Saeco comes highly recommended but in talking with other owners of this product (see Chip's review **)they were very disappointed with this particular...

It's easy to use and makes a great tasting brew

Have to release the pressure after frothing, difficult disassembly and cleaning, service takes 3-6 weeks

Consumer review by:

Great for professionals on the run who enjoy good Joe!

 

My husband and I bought the machine about 6-months ago after weeks of contemplation. We began out search for a good, easy to operate, low maintenance machine when I realized that between the two of us we were spending $170 at Starbucks in about...

Great for the busy adult who love a good cup of coffee!

People say the price, but I say it's worth it!

Consumer review by:

Very Disappointed

 

Based on several very positive reviews of this machine here on epinions, I purchased this machine. I was very disappointed in it, and have now sent it back for a refund. I wanted to post a counter-point opinion here to keep others from being similarly ...

No coffee grounds mess.

Milk mess instead, and need to drain off over-pressure every time.

Consumer review by:

Won't go back to regular coffee maker!

 

This is my first espresso maker (actually bought it for my wife for Valentine's day) and we absolutely love it. A novice in making mochas, latte's and cappuccino's I quickly learned how to (or more accurately the machine does it automatically) make...

Easy to set up, machine notification (i.e. cleaning needed, 3 different coffee settings

Bean hamper and water reservoir should be larger.

Consumer review by:

Good machine for light users...

 

We purchased our machine 4 years ago and are officially putting it to rest today while awaiting our new machine to arrive(total different make). I did extensive internet research as to the best machine selling at that time. It was highly recommended...

Easy, simple to use, begins with great coffee

Wear and tear are fast depending on the amount of use ; leaks, clogs up
