Russell Hobbs 19720 Pump

 

Here's what a £50 espresso machine looks like

Inexpensive ; Petite ; Fairly cute design

Quite noisy ; Parts feel flimsy ; Inconsistent coffee temperature ; Not suitable for long drinks

It’s cheap, compact and cheerful, but the small size and limited performance come with a few frustrations of their own.

Flimsy

 

Makes good coffee but very disappointed with the actual machine, very flimsy, water very difficult to get into machine, wish I had spent more and got a better machine.

Not befitting the Rusell Hobbs brand

 

This product did not work from new because of a faulty thermostat. Additionally it would have been (if I had not returned it ) cumbersome to use; it will therefore struggle against competitors intelligent /automated pod alternatives for ease of use....

Nice one

 

This machine does all I ask of it. Makes a good espresso and Latte. Hope it continues to serve me well in the future.

Makes decent coffee

 

Does what it says on the box. Water fill is a bit fiddly and noise from machine whilst making coffee/ hot milk is very loud. I used to work in a coffee house, this is louder than a pro machine! Love the coffee it makes for a cheap price.

Excellent product for little money.

 

All round great product. A little hard to fill with water.

for those who like barely warm coffee

 

Somehow the machine doesn't heat the water orderly during making the drink. And steam-whipping of the milk is more of a mess then with other types of coffee-makers. Overall, okay, still much better then having to drink soluble coffee.
