My wife gave the red 'u' machine to me as a gift months ago . The first night I had at least 5 espressos then refinished the kitchen cabinets. A true and deep love was born. The unit itself is fantastic...retro but modern. Easy to fill the detachable...

Perfect addiction!


It is so great to have this luscious addition to my kitchen. I foresee another one in my motorhome. No more Starbucks for this coffee connoisseur. I'm hoping for some flavored coffees too!

I wanted something simple...


I have been using my machine for over a year now. My first disappointment was the discoloration of the metal in the water tank. Mine looked rusted after a few weeks. Next the size selector stopped working. I have to stand there and stop it manually...

Less than perfect!


Got the machine for Christmas and am less than impressed. Have had problems with machine not brewing the correct amount of espresso on all three levels (even after resetting to factory levels). User manual is less than useless.
