Great flavoured coffee

 

Absolutely wrapped with this machine. Have only had it a short while, so still learning the art of coffee making. But so fatal very happy with the coffees I've made from it. It runs quieter than I expected from a machine, pretty straightforward to use,...

It Was Good For 6 Months (EM3820) MODEL

 

But now it has started leaking water. When you turn the machine dial to 'coffee' it just makes a noise & leaks; if you turn the machine to 'STEAM' it just shoots out loads of water & doesn't steam. It also leaks all of its water. I have to have my 3-4...

Leaked Water from New

 

The Sunbeam Cafe Espresso EM3800 leaked water from new. It leaks about 50 ml of water when you first turn it on, and 20 ml each cup you make. The water leaks down the back into the bottom catch tray. Accordingly I do not recommend buying the Sunbeam...

only last 13 months

 

I bought this machine last year in June. But it finally stopped working last week. The milk frother has not been working properly for several month actually. When i bought this, i expected this machine would work for two years. Sadly, it did not last...

milk-frother pump out water instead of steam.

Great Coffee

 

I bought this machine about 8 months ago and it makes anywhere between 2 -8 cups per day. It took me awhile to find a coffee I liked but the machine has been faultless (touch wood). I don't use the milk frother mechanism as I have an automatic one, but...

Quick, easy to use and most of all, easy to clean.

Decent machine for the price

 

warranty. Now after 3 years of use it's blown, the pc board was faulty. Disappointed. I would have expected it to last a bit longer at least!

Easy to use, decent coffee

Faulty (had to be replaced twice and completely gone after 3 years), a little noisy, overheats

Decent machine for the price

 

We got this machine as a present and found it makes a decent cup of coffee for home brewers. Nothing like a barista quality coffee but pretty good. However a few negatives, the crema wasn't very creamy, but more frothy and while the frother worked OK...

Great machine

 

We have had this machine at work for the past 6 years and makes 10-15 cups a day. Other than a new seal it still works great. We actually recently upgraded to a EM4820 but it only lasted 6 months! So out came the old Em3800 still working great as usual!

Reliable

So far so good... lets hope it lasts!!!

 

Rich smooth brew with crema, fast heat up time, clever usage of machine heat to warm up cups. Small bench footprint.

A swivel on the steamer nozzle would be great to avoid the pre-steam jet squirting on the bench.. I have to use a mini-cup. Maybe a compartment to keep the cleaning tools would be an idea.
