Great little machine


I already have two capsule machines..good ones..and although the coffee is pretty good if you drink several cups a day it costs a fortune. I didn't want to start with a very expensive machine.... I read a lot of reviews and the sunbeam piccolo had good...

Good little machine for the price


Bought this machine for our caravan since I have a larger version in my home. I have to say it makes great coffee for being such an economical price. The quality of construction is definitely not there, things just seem a bit loose and cheap but that...

Need earmuffs to use the frother


Today I bought a Sunbeam Piccolo espresso coffee machine, replacing a Sunbeam Cappuccino Machine I had happily used for a couple of years. I was pleased with the coffee, but when I started to use the frother I was amazed how noisy it is. It was so loud...

Brilliant machine for one or two people!


Have owned several of these coffee machines over the past decade. As someone who has a lot of experience as a Barista (professionally and otherwise) and incredibly fussy when it comes to coffee, this unit makes great coffee. In fact, I would put it as...

Very nice little machine


Good machine for the price and fits perfectly in my small kitchens. It makes good coffee with a nice crema on top , also the frotter is very good. The only negative thing about my review can be I can not make a strong coffee even though I use dark...

Good crema and good frotting

Small water tank, doesn't make a strong coffee

Great Machine, Poor Quality


The machine itself made fantastic coffees, however after 6 months of light usage mine has failed. When the steam wand is used, it is now pushing steam through the coffee head which is not only rather annoying, it reduces the steam output on the wand. I...

made good espresso and cappuchinos, low cost

only lasted six months of light use

Good machine - if u know what ur doing


For the price this is a great machine. Works best with a firmly packed medium or fine grind. The cup warmer isn't the best, If you want hot cups use boiling water. Seems there's a fine line with a cold and weak cup of coffee when using this, but as...

Cheap, fast, when used properly makes a great coffee.

Cup warmer warms 1/3 cup, struggles to fit a regular coffee cup, can be difficult to find you "sweet spot" for making a perfect cup
