It's great for price
on 28 December 2014
Love the coffee. Love the ease of using it but just wish the milk wand was more flexible and has more power. It does froth but seems to take so long. We used over Xmas period and when you've got around 10 coffees to make I think I was doing them for around 20 minutes plus. .. We use costa coffee with ours and it's a great buy it would be good if it had an automatic switch off feature, like a button for the 1 shot and a button for 2. Some people may see it as a plus that it doesn't do that so you can add the desired amount of coffee but I think it should really run an accurate amount of water per coffee scoop.

I don't know what I'm doing differently. In fact I'm confident I'm doing everything the same. I use the scoop that comes for coffee measure and tamper coffee same as always. I've given it a thorough clean several times and no matter what I do my coffee is not producing a crema. Which means disgusting coffee. I've tried buying different brands. Probably a good 10 or so and I've just thrown them all away as nothing is working. The only conclusion I can come to is that the machines temperature isn't right so the coffee isn't caramelising .. We are really disappointed and think we may have to give up on this machine.
