what a classic

 

What a fantastic machine, 6 years of faithful service, until the steam wand would only produce a stream of hot water. We just simply wore it out! Two days of bodum coffee (eew :() and off to the shop for the the dual boiler,BES 920! WOW! 10X what the...

Really great!

 

blockage because now it steams beautifully and heats my milk up in just a couple of minutes. When I purchased the machine it was missing the small (single cup) filter, but I was able to call Breville customer service and order a replacement ($13 for...

Reliable, makes nice crema, steams milk quickly, easy to clean, great customer service

Still the best

 

This was the second one of these I bought, and I bought a third one for a friend, which is still going strong, after several years and only one repair. After retiring this 2 yrs ago to buy a (much) more expensive Breville machine, I recently had to get...

Just makes the best coffee, inexpensive and easy to use.

Cafe Roma - simple but it works

 

This little simple coffee machine works everytime. You don't need all those fancy add ons that break down. This one works a treat, good crema, easy to clean, nice looking, what more do you want. I love this little machine. As long as you clean the...

Excellent Home Machine

 

suming that the pressure builds up after one shot has gone through so there is more pressure for the second shot. I've also taken the black rubber thing OFF the steam wand as it creates horrible fluffy froth. Once removed the steam wand is brilliant &...

Chea!. It's very basic & simple to use.

Needs to be primed so you end up wasting a lot of coffee.

Makes an brilliant coffee at home every day

 

tant coffee is only an option if you've ran out of beans. It doesn't take long to heat up either. It looks nice in the kitchen and doesn't take up very much bench space like many others.

As far as I know it wasn't real expensive. It always gives me a good coffee.

Perfect No Fuss Coffee Every Time!

 

ingers crossed). The only part of the machine I am not happy with is the steam wand, as the thread seems to be out of whack and can leak when steaming milk, but this is a minor thing and does not affect the quality of the coffee. We are otherwise very...

Efficient and reliable no fuss functionality, makes great coffee.

Steam wand design could and may well have been improved since we purchased our machine.

I can live without it!

 

making even more noise. If you like a decent size mug like me good luck fitting it under and/or making two at a time. This is made for small cups only.

Sturdy and long lasting. Inexpensive, makes a nice cup

Far too noisy, only designed for small cups.

Magic Machine

 

I've had the Cafe Roma for six years and it has never missed a beat! Bought after eading several Choice reviews and so glad I did, it was inexpensive and has consistently made a brilliant cup of coffee with beautiful crema. It comes everywhere with us...

Reliable, makes great coffee

Bad quality

 

I brought it a few years ago and it was great. Then it broke down - the steamer stopped working. By then it was out of warranty so I didn't bother to have it fixed. So bought a second one. It too broke down within 6 months. I am very disappointed. I...
