!!So Glad I found this to replace my original!!

First of all, this is an old-style espresso machine. I bought this one to replace one I was given over 2 decades ago. Just so you know, the original one didn’t last 2 decades with daily use, but I love the ease of it, and I love being able to make 4 cups of espresso at a time for 1 Americano each morning for the next 4 days.

Good value, great espresso!

Great machine, but I was surprised to learn that I was buying a “new” machine that was apparently sitting on the shelf for over 15 years. Documentation that comes with it says copyright 2000. Outer box was red in color with faded spots from exposure to light. Inner packaging was great protection for the unit however, and finding the included VHS tape on how to make coffee with the unit was humorous to say the least. But, with all that being said, the unit works flawlessly, and produces great espresso. The controls are well laid out, and simple to understand.

Melitta Espresso Cappuccino Machine

Love this Cappuccino Machine. I will admit that I don’t use it to froth milk. The whole process of frothing milk on an amateur machine is too much work and clean-up for me — I simply use a dedicated milk frother in the microwave. But for brewing a cup of espresso that tastes right, uses your own ground coffee beans and allows for a very generous amount of beans used, is fairly fast and steams the grounds, this is the best machine I have used. Also have had to work with the company with a couple small defects on the product and they were apologetic and fast with the fix. The unit is also easy on the hands — the lid, which must screw on tightly, is ribbed and an easy shape to grip, unlike other machines with smooth cone-shaped caps. The splatter factor as the espresso comes out is minimal compared to other machines. I am fully satisfied with this machine. I did not expect high-line high-priced machine performance from this low-cost machine, and I got more than I expected.

This is absolutely wonderful! It’s very basic, easy to use and makes delicious esspresso. It’s actually quite a bargain. I have personally never made my own cappicino or espresso and even the first batch I attempted was perfect and delicious. I’m not sure why I’ve never heard of this brand before but I plan on looking to see if they make a regular coffee pot to replace my old one with.

…I love it when people tell me that the expresso I’m drinking isn’t really “an expresso”.

The best little espresso maker. My first one lasted several years. Great value.

Works great

Works great as long as you heat the milk up in the microwave first, and don’t froth till coffee is done.
