Very cute, works well until you pour from the pot. This product should have been better designed.
I have no idea if this is good first hand, but my wife is happy with it, so it must be pretty good.
It’s a nice espreso maker, but the tip of the pourer was broken not sure if it was the carrier’s fault or amazon, either way i’ll just glue it.
Found it on youtube, while checking various coffee making tutorials and liked the idea of detachable ceramic pot – very neat for serving coffee to the guests. Searched the amazon and – voila, they have everything your soul might desire 🙂 my excuse for this purchase was that i only have 2 cup and 6 cups espresso makers – nothing in between. Color is a little diferent then in the picture, but whoever is into colors knows, that real items are always slightly different in person. This one has a slight tint of raspberry (blueish) as opposed to the red with a hint of orange in the picture, but not bad, really. I tested the pot right away – makes good coffee (i know, the first couple batches from a brand new espresso maker are supposed to be disposed of, but i didn’t have much time and took one sip). My initial concern was that the maker might become useless if i break the porcelain pot, but apparently it works with a right size coffee cup, too (tested).

Ok– so, i had some free time today and since i just got this in the mail, i decided to run a comparison it to a bialetti 6-cup aluminum stovetop one i got for xmas as well as the super-cheap stainless steel one i’ve been using for years. I used the same water and the same amount of heat. And i used super-cheap cafe bustelo coffee that’s pretty bitter tasting, generally. I was curious if the flavors would be different and if so, which one would have the least bitterness. This charming device one won the competition hands down. Next up was the stainless steel one, and amazingly, the most bitter of all was the bialetti. Anyway, i’m super charmed by this thing. The arm that feeds the little pot has a heat-proof coating so you can unscrew it and clean it out even when it’s still hot. I feel super fancy and special with this thing– like a mini-tea party all for myself; and the 4- cup size is perfect for 1 or 2 people (my old one was a single, so it’s nice to feel like i can make coffee for 2– or have a second cup waiting for later but not sitting in aluminum). Warning: read the directions carefully.
This style espresso pot was popular in the 80s, us. The ceramic top was for serving as opposed to lifting the entire brewer. I had one that was a little larger and loved it but the top broke while moving into a new home. To answer all the complaints about lifting on an angle and spillage. You never fill the bottom of any stovetop past the relief valve. You need that space for boiling and pressure build up. Of course the top will be smaller than the bottom, it’s part of the design. The key to all of these, including the bialetti, is the filter/gasket. They all use the same one in different sizes so you’re buying build and appearance. I have at least 4 different brands, inherited and purchased, all stovetop espresso is basically the same.
I have been using it for about a month and it makes a great espresso quick and easy. I used to have something similar years ago and i was happy to find this one. I agree with the reviewer that said the instructions are easy to follow. I guess the other reviewer must have just gotten a bad one. Mine is sturdy and well made. I have ordered one for my aunt who loves espresso too.
Nice and simple coffee maker were vent is a lock washer was put vent is at an angle instead of being straight, and inside were you fill with water isn’t finished very good with ruff silver paint edges.
Now here is a first rate stove top espresso maker. It’s nice and solid and stable on the stove. It;s designed for slow brewing and makes a good cup. It’s more stable on the stove than the aluminum ones.
I wanted to love this, but it came chipped. It’s also difficult to get the coffee out. But it really is a pretty coffee maker.
Works very well but the lid cannot be securely grasped.
Makes a good strong cup if espresso quality coffee. No crema to speak of, but darned good stuff.
It makes great coffee and looks good on my stovetop.
Love this 4cup espresso maker-so adorable-easy to use-and makes great coffee-in other reviews people complained about no handle-however the actual ceramic pot has a handle that keeps cool-you just have to use a dish towel to tilt the tube while removing ceramic pot-super easy.
Paint will chip off, but it’s cheerful for now, and it will work no less well without red paint. Handsomely made – good non-galling threads; inside fairly smooth; silicone gasket should last. Chunky stoneware pitcher provides a server. Holds 200ml (8 oz) as advertised. The batch leaves small room for milk. I often keep half the coffee to drink cold later. The held-over part can wait right in the same pot. No leaks even the first time, and it makes moka like any other.
Helps make a mouth watering cup of espresso, appealing design and style.
I obtained this simply because i liked the notion of becoming equipped to use the ceramic part to provide my expresso. A number of items you may well want to think about. . The drinking water tank (the red part) holds extra liquid than the ceramic component so when earning your coffee you have to fill it 50 % way or it will spill. It is really hard to acquire out from the connected hook without having spillage and you have to use an oven mitt to do it or you will burn up on your own. It does make superior expresso (four cups or 1-two fantastic lattes) and that’s why i kept it. On the other hand, it is cumbersome to don’t forget all that needs to be completed in get not to have incidents, spillage oror a mess. Most likely, but with a warning label. This is absolutely not for an individual who needs fast and quick.
This is my new favourite espresso maker. It’s adorable as all get out, and it make a smooth, tasty cup of espresso. Some posters have complained that it spills espresso when you get rid of it from the foundation. This means they filled it as well whole. I’ve had that trouble possibly after or 2 times, but it is not a big deal and it only happens when i fill the water past the safety valve. I use it a number of occasions a week. If you consume it as espresso, it yields about two cups. If you use it for a reduce of coffee, it fills a twelve ounce cup no issue.
This was better then i assumed,, the engineering in the spot is sooo much superior. I have damaged off a great number of spouts but this one as a lip that makes it possible for you to use your thumb to open it when its restricted with out breaking it.
Fantastic espresso and this makes it effortless to use.
I’m not substantially of a ‘mocha’ or espresso lover. But at times i want something different than my morning cup of joe. This stove top espresso maker appears to be like fantastic, operates extremely nicely, and would make a tasty cup of espresso.
