Much higher quality than generic Moka


Makes a very strong cup of coffee, that has the long lasting kick of espresso. Not as thick as real espresso, but as powerful. Much higher quality than the generic copy-cat models. 4+ Stars

Easy to use. Makes great coffee.


I really like this espresso maker. Frankly it is easier to use and makes better coffee than the "Mr Coffee" electric espresso machine that I had previously.

Hard to find replacement parts


Acceptable taste, but scary behavior. Beware not to forgot water, which I did... And if you burn the gaskets, which I did, good luck to find a replacement set for the 4 cups model..

Easy to use


It took a minute for me to figure out how to use this espresso maker, mainly because the instructions were badly translated from Italian. But once I got it down, every morning espresso making is a snap. And frankly, the badly translated instructions...

Love It.


I personally love this thing. Brews (nearly) perfect cappuccino in 3 or 4 minutes. Just one large coffee mug\'s worth - I don\'t know about 2 cups, I never share mine :-P. It\'s really not that hard to keep it from overflowing either - you just only...
