Poor extraction

Great little machine!


I've had this machine for a good month now & I really like it. It's easy to use, easy to clean & I find the temperature of the coffee to be perfect (I don't like my mouth to be burnt to a crisp, but that's just me!) The timer is very easy to use as well.

Temperature of coffee, ease of use.

Very Poor coffee maker


This machine makes a very poor product. Very heavy on coffee grounds, or a very weak drink. Not hot enough. water flows too fast causing the grounds to overflow the basket, and prevent the stop valve from working, obstructing inlet holes in top of...

Looks great

A very "Yuk" drink of coffee

Good coffee but water in buttons!


Ours is a temperamental little thing. Sometimes it works but sometimes the water gets in the buttons and they don't work. I think we need to get it replaced on warranty. I agree with the lukewarm coffee. I usually heat the milk up. Still, a nifty...

Good coffee, fairly quick.

Water in buttons.
