My Machine Sux

 

I purchase one of these espresso machines from Starbucks several weeks ago and have had nothing but trouble with it. I tried using Starbucks Espresso grind and their PODS. I have used it more than a dozen times with each grind and still it will not run...

Looks fancy on the counter

Does not work well at all and over priced for its performance

Perfect Expresso

 

In the past 15 years we have owned a DeLonghi, Krups and Saeco.  By far, the Saeco Via Venezia has been the best for the money.  We bought it from a former Starbucks manager who won it in a contest.  It is very user friendly and consistently brews...

Heavy, steam wand could be a little longer

Looks good on the countertop

Not user friendly. Poor engineering for sure

The Via Venezia machine is a welcome to have in our home. It makes a perfect espresso each and every time and is fast. Works easily and makes either one or two identical shots of espresso in a matter of under a minute.

Easy to use, perfect espresso, perfect steam

None, not one

A fantastic value

 

Making a good cup of espresso is delicate. You have to start with good coffee properly roasted, of course.

Easy to use, makes great espresso, relatively inexpensive, very reliable, good design

Single heater, inadequate frother, no cup warmer

Ah, Espresso

 

I remember when I was little, and I used to eagerly crowd the breakfast table next to mom or dad, and watch them drink that mysterious steaming black brew. It had such a wonderful aroma, and I suppose it's every child's dream to emulate the...
