Consumer review by: Ron H. (

Steam is now not enough to produce adequate froth.


Been reasonably happy with this machine, had it around 2 years but now seems to not have enough steam pressure to consistently produce any froth. On average we have used it once to twice a day, so is it time to buy another? When it was working well it...

Sunbeam vita EM6200


I've had this machine for over 12 months and so far very happy. Recently had to replace the group head seal; unfortunately, I couldn't remember which way the seal went in, nothing the users manual, apart from the seal may need replacing once in a...

Revised upwards


I've left my original review below, but after taking a replacement machine I have to say I'm very happy with this product. It makes great coffee and in fact I prefer the coffee I make on the Espresso Vita to about half of what I buy in cafés. I use...

Delicious coffee, great crema

Initial machine was malfunctioning. Non-existent customer service.

Not worth the time or money


I have had one for just over a year, my last sunbeam was great, very forgiving in its pour... This one is downright horrible.. I have had about a dozen "good" coffees, the main problem is the pour, running water with no grind shows a higher pressure...

It would be great if it worked!!

Espresso and Frothing


Hi, I'm looking into buying one of these machines 'Sunbeam EM6200' I was just wondering if you could make the coffee and froth the milk at the same time, or separately. I would really like an answer, as i am super interested in buying the product, and...

Great Coffe - Short Life


I purchased my Espresso Vita in November last year, after my second Cafe Series cheapy died. I am an addict, and value for money these machines make a great espresso, and that is what I drink, two double shots every morning before I leave the house. My...

Great Coffee, Adjustable Programmes, coffee at a great temperature, Probably good for lower duty.

Life expectancy too low, Milk Frothing a bit weak, Can't keep up with my addiction!!!

Manufacturing quality may be questionable.


I purchased the Sunbeam Espresso Vita EM6200 6 months ago. The first one had an "out of the box" fault. Condensation in the gauge. Sunbeam replaced with a new one. Worked perfectly for 5 months and then developed a terminal fault where the pressure...

Easy to use and makes a great cup of coffee. Right temperature and good extraction.

Concerned about quality of manufacture and early obsolescence

Espresso Gauge is not working?


I just bought my Espresso Vita. I follow all the steps that appear on the Instruction Booklet, but I am not able to get the Espresso Gauge to the section "Optimum Pour". I am totally dissapointed with the information provided and not able to enjoy a...

Great machine


I've owned 2 Sunbeam machines over the past decade and this is the most 'upmarket' one yet. It's easy to use, looks great and pulls great shots. I highly recommend you buy a burr grinder to go with it, my old Delongi broke (I dropped it) so I decided...

Easy to use, looks great, rewards good technique with GREAT coffee

The drip tray could be deeper and can be fussy with finer grinds.

Awesome espresso machine!

Drip tray could be bigger, tamp supplied not great, but gonna get that with all cheaper machines.
