Consumer review by: John S (

Had our machine for five years and it continues to go well


Just about to replace my second group head seal but that is the only issue that we have had with the machine. It is cleaned regularly and continues to deliver good coffee. Frother works well but can clog if you don't clean it after each use but that is...

Slow, but good coffee


I bought the Sunbeam based on the rating in Choice Magazine. The machine generally works well, though it takes a long time for the steam wand to heat up. The rubber seal in the group head tends to wear out and there is only one place in Canberra to buy...

Easy to use, very nice coffee

It takes a long time for the steam wand to warm up. It would be better if it warmed up at the same time as the coffee machine

Dissappointed, it offered so much but was erratic in it's performance.


My son bought this coffee machine as a Xmas present for my wife in 2009. It was the first present he bought her after getting his first job. I helped him select it based on price and features. He was so proud, but unfortunately we had nothing but...

Style and features

Erratic performance, couldn't be trusted to deliver a coffee without nursing it through the process.

Still going well...


Just an update on my previous review. After 2 years this machine is still going well. All I have had to do is replace the rubber seal on the group head a few times and that's pretty much it. I have made 2-4 coffees every day since I bought the machine...

5000 cups in 7 years


Well my EM5600 was purchased in 2007 and finally this morning gave up the ghost. It has been brilliant. I have always made at least 2 espressos per day, probably 1/3 black and 2/3 white. I grind my own beans and use the same tamper that came with the...

Very very consistent. Simple to use. Reliable and long lasting.

Great Machine


I have had a machine for over a year and have been extremely impressed with the ease of use and the good taste & quality of coffee it produces. It requires a little bit of skill which is easily learnt and you have to start with good coffee. I rarely...

You can make the coffee as strong or weak or frothy or not...just as you like it.

Cup warmer stays on but I just turn the power switch off and it stops using electricity.

Consumer review by: BaristaBob (



Coffee tasted great at first, but after less than one year filters clagged up and had to be replaced. After 18 months coffee started tasting terrible. This happened even though I usually made only one espresso per day, never tried the milk option, and...


Hard to clean properly. Needs frequent replacement parts.

Not happy Jan


I purchased this recently as a gift for my partner and we are definitely not happy with the product. I don't know if it is broken or if that is how the machine works but there is no automated self stop on the coffee/water pour. As an amateur coffee...

No automated pour stop, results in terrible tasting coffee

Consumer review by: frogger (

Outperforms machines well above its price point


Had my machine for 5 years now and have enjoyed the results throughout this time. In the past year I have been able to refine the brewing technique through introducing a conical grinder and pro tamper and these have taken it to the next level. This...

Never worked properly


This machine has never worked properly, I thought it was my technique that I couldnt get the milk to froth but now the steam wand doesnt work at all. It is only 5 months old but as it was a gift from someone who has returned overseas and not kept the...

Never worked properly.
