“An excellent piece of kit”

published 05/09/2010

Quick and makes great coffee

none

Intro I like my coffee, but it is the fresh ground coffee taste that I prefer. The smell alone is so inviting. The aroma of fresh coffee and the promise of a decent cuppa is very appealing. I do have a coffee maker, which also makes espresso and cappuccino, but sometimes when I’m in alone I just...

“The perfect cup of coffee”

Easy to use and makes delicious coffee

fiddily to use and clean

The perfect cup of coffee I am a complete coffee addict and drink many cups throughout the day. Most of the time I drink instant because of the convenience but I do like to occasionally make a proper strong cup of fresh coffee. When living in Spain I got into drinking coffee using an on stove...

“ "L'omino con i baffi"”

Uncomplicated top stove espresso maker

So easy to make you'll end up a nervous wreck

For as long as I can remember this coffeepot has been loitering on the cooker in my kitchen. Perhaps of the advertisers conditioning I was subjected to when I was growing up - I could sing you the tune! - , the distinctive mark - the man with the moustache pointing at the ceiling in his little...

I do not drink espresso on its own. I have tried a cup of the powerful drink on perhaps two occasions, and for the rest of the day discovered that I was in a hyperactive state and unable to fully appreciate the taste of anything else. What I do enjoy though, is a nice mocha or cappuccino, and...

Simply the best: so straight forward and idiot proof. I also have a collection sitting at the back of my cooker even when I go through periods of coffee abstinence. Yes you will need to replace the rubber rings and yes, every five years or so the filter cup starts to get holes in it especially if...

“Best coffee machine”

published 29/04/2013

very easy to use

N/A

Just so simple to use, yet this machine makes such as delicious coffee, all there's needed is a good quality coffee such as Lavazza, I prefer the red label. The machine is plainly simple, you fill the bottom part with water up to the valve level, but without covering the valve as this is where...
