If you're always in a hurry in the morning and need coffee, but don't want to spend too much on an espresso machine and/or don't have much space in the kitchen, then this is the best option out there. You can make a really good cup of coffee with just one touch. The Siroca alternative looks too cheap and plasticy. This one looks much more premium and the grinder doesn't deteriorate. It's something you can use for more than five years.The coffee tastes really good. I'm impressed by the taste of iced coffee using this machine. Actually, all the coffee taste wonderful. But do try making iced coffee with it!
Nice coffee but too many problems and poor build quality, don't buy
- by Unhappycoffee,
The coffee you can make with this is nice, definitely a step up from your regular machine, however it has been plagued with problems from the start. the automatic grinder no longer automatically stops when the beans have been ground, and will continue forever. No idea why, I've followed the manual instructions.Now today, the water boiler is leaking through the plastic seams and coming out of the wall of the maker at the back, rendering it useless.Overall for this money, put in a bit extra and get a moccamaster, the build quality is a different world.
The coffee is excellent. However, the grinder is extremely loud and takes quite a while even for small amounts of beans. It also makes terrible high pitched noises that I have never heard from a coffee grinder. If the grinder was improved, I would give this item 5 stars.
