Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I have rarely drank anything other than instant coffee at home for a very long time, so moving to a ‘proper’ coffee in the mornings was a real treat for me! I must admit, it has taken me a while to get used to using it, and at the beginning I did find it quite fiddly so not necessarily something I could use in a hurry. However once I was into the swing of using it, I haven’t looked back! It makes the best expression I’ve ever had, and with the way the world is currently it’s nice to not have to go into a coffee shop and have one at hone instead! I really love this, it looks great in my Kitchen too so a bonus in that sense! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a great machine, the jewel in your kitchen I am a big coffee lover, I always start my day with a cup of coffee. I like natural and strong coffee so this machine is just great for that. It's very easy to use, pretty straight forward, easy to clean as well. The milk frother works great, I use plant based milk and turns out nice. The only thing you need to remember is to let the machine cool down once you use the steam before you start brewing. You can do this by waiting a few minutes or you can run a steam cooling down cycle by turning the button to steam position and let cold water come out for like 40 seconds. I like it overall, is exactly what I needed, it's quick and is better than buying coffee outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great espresso machine! I love everything about this espresso coffee machine. It's not too big, it has a very elegant design and chrome colour that will be suitable for any kitchen. IT doesn't look bulky or huge, it looks fantastic and compact in our kitchen. And the best part is that it makes delicious coffee! Very easy to use after reading instructions. Yes, you need a little bit of time to make a coffee but it is worth it, as the coffee tastes amazing! It's like you have a small cafe in your own kitchen. You can make 1 cup or 2 cups at the same time, so great for couples. I also adore how to make velvety milk with a steam wand. It's a bit noisy but you get used to it and the taste of it is just brilliant. Highly recommend this coffee machine, you will love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great, compact espresso machine This product is smaller than I was anticipating and fits in a little corner next to my kettle, so is perfect. It is fast to heat the water and dispenses any amount of water so you can have your espresso strong or more dilute. It comes with two sizes of pot to put the grounds in to make either one or two cups but I usually use the '2 cup' for one cup. The milk steamer works well although it is an on/off function, I would have preferred to be able to vary the amount of steam as I use non-dairy milk and it overheats easily. I am in an area with soft water so don't need to worry about filtering the water or anything but I imagine you would need to take this into account to avoid limescale in hard water areas. Overall very happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing coffee machine!! I am in love with this machine! It is so simple to use. The coffees ive been making with it is divine. Its like having your own Coffee shop at home. It does a great job of brewing the coffee. You can choose how much coffee you want in your cup with a flip of the dial. So the drinks you can make are endless. It heats up really fast too. The milk frother is brilliant and fast making hot foamy milk very quickly. Its quite compact and doesn't take up lots of room on the worktop. Exceptional quality and design. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic coffee in a flash Fantastic Coffee in a flash, comes packaged really well and it's all able to be recycled where we live so that's a great start. Really easy to follow step by step instructions. I made a latte and it tasted fantastic. Water heats up really fast only taking a few minutes to reach temperature it also has its own steamer/milk frothing nozzle which is a really nice extra. It's very easy to clean after each use too. A really classy elegant batista machine in your own home a fantastic piece of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fantastic Espresso machine This is by far the best coffee I have tasted anywhere other than a coffee lab cafe. It is very simple to use but is very improessive when you make a coffee in fron of friends and family. The machine is very attractive and looks expensive so there is no hesitancy to have it on show on the kitchen worktop. Then the taste.... if you get the right coffee bean then it is absolutely amazing! Easily the best coffee that I have tasted in anyones home, easily as good as most coffee shops!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for coffee lovers I’m a frothy coffee lover and my husband a expresso fan. This does both and more. The machine is reasonable compact and fits nicely in my kitchen. With a gorgeous stainless steel finish. I like the way you can strengthen the coffee to your particular tastes. The single and double baskets for coffee are a perfect addition. The steam wand os my favourite for my milk. I just need to work on my baristas art !
