Good coffee machine at a reasonable price
on 5 February 2016
I bought this to replace my old Russell Hobbs machine which had stopped working. Overall I would say that this is a better machine than the Russell Hobbs. It is sturdier and it drips much less. It operates in exactly the same way (I assume they all do) and It makes a nice cup of coffee. It is very easy to use but just like my old machine I found that if I was making a cappuccino, it is impossible to froth only enough milk for one cup of coffee. I bought a special milk frothing jug designed for this purpose, but you have to fill it half full for the frother to reach the milk. You are then left with far more milk than you need. This is not a complaint about this particular coffee machine, as my previous machine was exactly the same. This is not a major problem just a small inconvenience but a nuisance all the same. Overall, however, this is a decent coffee machine and on the whole I am happy with it.
