  • Another problem here - the steam is not that strong to make a good foam (or any foam at all)

      If you’re a real gourmet or coffee fan you’re not going to be satisfied with this purchase. In the hierarchy of espresso machines (if such hierarchy exists) this one owns the lowest level. It doesn’t mean that this espresso machine is of the bad quality or has any kind of defects. It’s just a one simple amateur machine that produces nice

      espresso, nothing more or less.

      Here you would never get this elegant espresso foam which you can see in your cup after using a big professional machine (like those they have in Italian restaurants or good coffee shops). The concentration - so the taste - obviously differs too. However, it’s still express.

      It has a steam nozzle for making cappuccino foam,

      • but this tool is absolutely useless. Made of plastic, it is also not very flexible - so you really have to make efforts moving your cup with milk around the nozzle. Another problem here - the steam is not that strong to make a good foam (or any foam at all).

        But since I barely drink cappuccino and wink at coffee quality,

        I wasn’t very upset with my purchase. My priorities were the size and the price of a product. This machine fits both category. The size is very suitable for small kitchens (7×9x9)and the price is more than reasonable (around $50).

        After all, you’re getting nice cup of mild espresso at home and may forget about Starbucks for a while… until the lunch time))
