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...

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...

Problems from the outset


We purchased our machine online from a distributor and we have problems from the outset. Leaking water from where the tank meets the machine means we have to remove the rear tank after every use or we have a puddle of water to clean up. A couple of...

Excellent Value


l not fit in the machine. At $99 from BIg W I find that hardly a huge problem to be concerned with as it is the taste of the coffee that counts in the end.I would recommend this to anyone who just wants a good coffee at a good price.

Great Value For Money


azza is great and believe it or not, the Fair Trade coffee from ALDI is also very good - Tastes good too. I have found various others that work well too. I recommend using a thermometer for when you are steaming the milk - this will ensure a consistent...

It works as advertised


Just got this last week from big W, makes good crema, steamer works well. Just one thing that annoys me and that is the water container at the back keeps leaking BUT still good value for money and a beginner! Been drinking 2-3 cups latte or cap a day...
