Cold espresso


Machine noisy but easy to use not bad coffee but for what I paid disappointing that I cannot get hot espresso. Have complained to Sunbeam but didn't help. Tried warming the cup and followed the instruction booklet but still no hot coffee just warm....

Excellent coffee machine for the money.


Yes I did own a Em5900 and liked the easiness of brewing .A bit noisy but taste was good enough to buy the next one but they don't make them any more. That makes this review useless and I usually don't buy refurbished/2nd hand ones as a rule for these...

A great beginner's machine


Very easy to use and clean, consistent espresso shot (albeit fast) and it is very quick to warm up the machine.

You have no idea about the water pressure and whether you have a good espresso shot. The advanced setups are also uneasy to notice a difference. The machine may be quick to warm up, it does take a relatively long time for the milk to heat to the...

Disappointed machine owner


Purchased this machine February 2011.(First 2 machines didn't work on purchase). When it was working it made great coffee but had to have it fixed at great expense twice. Then in October 2012 the circuit board blew up after only having the machine...

It was east to use and clean and made good coffee.

Had to be fixed twice before finally blew up.

I love a good coffee


First of all, this is a noisy mofo, but it does brew a good coffee. Until we moved recently, our kitchen was from the Stone Age so when you turned this machine on it would make everything on the benches rattle. It's not a good machine to have if your...

Yummy yummy coffee

s. It tends to need the setting changed regularly and be careful if you clean it has small parts can be lost. It also is a little messy compared to other grinders.

Reliable and makes a great coffee

My new best friend


I recently purchased the sunbeam coffee maker, and I think it's brilliant. Having consumed many cappuccinos in my time, but never having made one before, I was surprised how easy it was to make a great cappuccino first time. It looks fantastic, and is...

Very easy to use, looks great, nicely finished

Good machine


Received the Artista 4 years ago as a birthday present and have been using it fairly often ever since (it got me through my uni days). It still works like a charm, with very minor leaks from the top of the coffee handle when the brew is coming through,...

Easy to clean/use

Can be a bit noisy, especially early morning

Fantastic machine for the price


I received the Artista for Christmas 2010 and it has been fantastic. Makes great coffee, easy to use and froths milk to a treat. This was the first coffee machine that I have owned and I couldn't be happier. Its great design allows us to leave it on...

Quick, easy to use that allows you the freedom to be experimental with your coffee making.

Nothing. Not sure if it is noisy. I haven't made a habit of listening to other coffee machines when I am out.
