love this machine


This machine was 99 from big w and we love it. We use it every day- sometimes 2x a day and never had an issue. Its easy to use and had a frother which is also handy. We liked it so much we bought them all as Christmas presents for our family.

Good for what is it


It is easy to use with no unnecessary buttons or functions. It is great for a small cup of coffee but won't fit a thermos or anything bigger than a medium sized cup. We also found the machine quite loud, especially the frother but it is bearable....

Value for Money


I bought this almost one and half years ago and have used it every day since then to make two cups of coffee in the morning. It took a week or so to learn to use it properly. It took some time to learn how to froth milk without making a loud noise....

Great but hard to get the inserts out of the coffee holder


We purchased this machine from bigw about 6mths ago. It's a great little machine, doesn't easily fit a big cup but wasn't designed to! The only issue I have is trying to get the half shot / single shot inserts for the coffee holder in and out - I...

Sweet but short-you can't always get what you want


ould have known better though, like the barista who keeps burning your coffee, Sunbeam seem to specialise in espresso makers that burn a hole in you pocket. No more though, they have burned their bridges with me this time at last. It's a shame...

Just die after 4 years


We purchased this coffee maker 4 years ago and it has just gone crazy staying on and tricking the breaker so we have replaced it with a new Expresso 2. It has been a great coffee maker and we have been happy with it. The trick with this machine is to...

Another Leaking Piccolo Tale


ide to trick it into working. The daily grind, as it became, no longer referred to the coffee. Finally I went to turn it off one day (it's probably about 2-2.5 years old at this point) and the button didn't turn off. It just stopped retracting, meaning...

Good coffee but it leaks from base


Just tracking down a solution to the leaking - otherwise great for what it is. Didn't leak to begin with but now it is a little annoying. Haven't had any other problems. I've bought other sunbeam coffee makers before and mostly they're the best value...

Just OK coffee but Heavy blowouts after 6 weeks...useless


Quite hard to master making good coffee, and then used more beans than our older cheaper boil pressure kambrook to get a similar result. After 6 weeks the seal is blowing every time causing hot water and grinds to pour into the cup.. Totally...

It takes the joy out of making coffee


This machine is probably worth every bit of the $99 I paid for it, which has taught me to never be so cheap when it comes to purchasing a coffee machine. The photograph on the packaging makes the product look quite stylish, however the components are...
