Pure selfish indulgence clad in stainless steel


Before doing anything else, read the instructions and study the tutorials. The Little Guy rewards those that put the effort in with an espresso coffee bursting with a synergy of purity, intensity and class. Something this good unfortunately takes time...

In our top five favourite household items


The resulting coffee tastes great — better than most of the cafes within walking distance from home (except for one). We have used it pretty much every moirning since we got it. Once you get used to the routine which is very basic (easy after the first...

We loveeeee our 'Little Guy'


We absolutely love our 'Little Guy', not only do we use it frequently at home we also take it camping... (well glamping)! We have now purchased the induction top which took a little bit of getting used too, but well worth the purchase, we moved to a...

Overdue review - Great investment


rson that just wants to press a button and be done with it. Grab a Nespresso or similar if that's your thing. But if you want to play and are willing to allow for a learning curve and put in the effort you'll get great results. But this is the same...

The ultimate coffee machine


Awesome coffee machine that produces great tasting coffee. Excellent crema, excellent steam pressure. We even take it in our caravan. We have had the machine for 6 years and it has worked flawlessly, until, last week. I got on the phone to the...

What ever did I do before the little guy came along?


I love my little guy. It's unique look makes it a talking piece of my kitchen when visitors come over. Thereafter, it doesn't disappoint with the coffee it makes. It's straight forward to use. It's about as easy/ difficult to clean as any other coffee...

Mixed opinion


s going to be a problem for me in the future. Seems an unusual thing to do given the time and materials taken to produce TLG, why would you add the silicone tubes that do not have the same longevity as the stainless steel and introduce a weak link in...

Consumer review by: Fazz1977 (

Consistently burns coffee, always cold coffee, never enough steam to heat milk.


before it runs out of go, but will not heat or froth milk past 40 degrees no matter what milk I use or my frothing method. I'm terribly dissapointed, as I know how much thought and effort my partner put into sourcing this machine for me, and the...

No more take aways!


We love our Little Guy! The best 50th birthday present ever. The brew comes through richly filled with crema. A blast of milk and you will never buy a take away coffee again! It's beautiful design makes it a great appliance to have out. We use it daily...
