Better than I ever expected


After putting my Nuova Simonelli Musica into storage and moving on to a Motorhome I was troubled about getting our morning coffees. After much online research and a need for coffee with a crema and a flavour like it was Barista made. I bought the...

Great coffee, great service


As a coffee lover, I had my eyes on the Little Guy (or Otto, as it used to be called) for years. I wanted it for its simplicity--its elegant design and clever extraction system that meant no moving parts. I finally bought one last october, and so far,...

Otto- The Little Guy is a coffee addicts best friend.had they respond super quick which is a rarity


I have had my Otto- The Little Guy now for approx 2 years and I love it. After previously having an atomic for 3 years the upgrade in design and function has been a blessing. This little guy pays homage to the masterpiece which is the Atomic but also...

"Everywhere I go always take my Otto with me


My husband and I are constantly on the road and if I'm not making my coffee in the van on the induction plate , I'm using gas in the bush. I too am extremely fussy with my coffee and this machine makes a great coffee. I have also learnt to roast my own...

A learning experience that pays off time and time again.


From the moment I unboxed The Little Guy I was continually impressed by the quality and presentation of each and every piece. I own the entire Little Guy range of products and each one has the same sturdy feel of something that has been made to last. I...

Love The Little Guy


Had thelittleguy for about 3 weeks. Never posted a product review for anything before but felt this was definitely worthy! Great little device that makes a full-flavoured shot of espresso (1-2 cups at a time), can generate lots of steam to texture milk...

Great Product & Excellent Customer Service


Do not be deceived by its size, this little coffee maker brews some serious coffee! It is suitable if you're making just 1 or 2 cups of coffee. The process takes about 10 minutes, so it's not meant for mass production (if you have many guests)....

Regular and Enjoyable Morning Ritual


It has been six months since I purchased 'The Little Guy' so I thought it was about time I gave it a review... I didn't buy the induction top, and simply use the smallest of my 4 stovetop elements (on the hottest setting) so don't think it is essential...

Me plus Otto = LOVE


we've had our Otto for about 4 years now. Love it. Excellent coffee every time. I like my coffee strong so use the whole shot (excellent crema!) - you don't get that watery end bit like we used to from the Atomic. You need to experiment with the grind...

Beautifull to look at but fails to deliver


We bought ours because it looked nice and we thought it would be simple to use . It started out okay but gradually the performance fell off until the crema hardly existed and the coffee tasted scorched/burned . We tried everything to fix it but one day...
