5.0 out of 5 stars The key is the pressurized portafilter design, guarantees a quality espresso shot, January 8, 2015

This review is from: Mr. Coffee Automatic Dual Shot Espresso/Cappuccino System (Kitchen)
*Update*: Still like this machine but just beware that the screws in the water tank rust. The rust crumbles off and falls onto a ledge inside the water tank, not directly into the water, but it's possible little pieces of rust can tumble into the water.

This machine is a great value for the quality of espresso you get out of it. The portafilter (the thing that holds the coffee) is pressurized (read up on pressurized vs non-pressurized portafilters), which is the key to why this is a safe beginner machine. A pressurized portafilter will not release coffee until enough pressure has built up within the basket, extracting dense flavor, the key to a good espresso. Non-pressurized portafilters rely on the fine grain of espresso ground coffee being tightly compacted into the basket (called tamping) to provide a similar resistance (fyi, espresso snobs demand a non-pressurized basket supposedly because it gives more control over the extraction process). This machine is designed to... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Great beginner machine, not for picky or professional baristas, September 26, 2016

This review is from: Mr. Coffee Automatic Dual Shot Espresso/Cappuccino System (Kitchen)
I am not a professional by any means, but I was a barista at a successful "mom n pop" coffee shop for a year, so I know how to pull a good shot and properly steam milk. I like good coffee, but I'm not a stickler. I wanted to be able to make my own espresso for americanos and the occasional latte at home. I did my research and decided on this machine because it's under 100 bucks which is what I was looking for. I also was looking at the Hamilton beach one that's under 100, and the delonghi. I know that's a better brand but this machine was a little cheaper and had similar reviews. This one is very user friendly, you definitely don't have to have barista experience to get a shot from it. Extreme coffee people might say it doesn't pull a "real" shot because it doesn't require espresso fine ground coffee (real espresso grounds should be as fine as powdered sugar and fit between the lines of your fingerprint) you can actually use it with regular ground coffee for a drip...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the Price--Treat with care tho. How-to tips below:, January 17, 2017

Great machine for the price. Steaming arm actually works on this generation. A few notes: 1. Take off and throw away the rubber/plastic thing on the steaming wand. 2. prime the steaming wand; a good squirt of water comes out first; you don't want that in your milk!!. 3. prime the brew head as well for a few secs--twice; some cold water will get in your coffee if you don't. 4. after you're done brewing and have removed the portafilter, rinse the brewhead by just priming it for a couple secs--twice. This will get any coffee grounds off the "showerhead." 5. ALWAYS brew into clear shot glasses; 25-30 secs MAX. If you're not getting two oz. of espresso by 30 secs, your grind is too fine or too packed. Less than 25 secs??? Grind finer or pack more for good strong shots. A simple digital kitchen timer is all you need. Also, if you don't know what a good shot looks like; heart, body, crema, ask a Barista at your Local GOOD Coffeehouse; not Starbucks. They don't even... Read more
