Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Barista Express Coffee Machine and Grinder, 1700 Watt - Silver (Kitchen & Home)
Excellently produced well made machine. Good manual with helpful tips and explanations of how the machine works. The problem is not the machine it is learning the nuances of making good coffee. Following the advice in the manual we have (after a few near misses!) mastered the coffee production process. What has really taken time is using the steam wand to obtain good textured milk and froth. Texturing the milk is relatively straight forward but the froth is a different matter. Having watched a few online videos and contacted Sage (very helpful) and purchased a milk frothing thermometer we have cracked it after realising that the key is the angle of the milk jug and the depth of the steam wand. Would recommend this machine.
