Flair Espresso Maker – Manual Press

xs The perfect option for anyone who truly enjoys espresso I am a very happy backer of the Flair as a kickstarter project.The folks behind this product clearly spent a lot of time and energy seeking out what makes a good espresso and translating that information into a hand powered espresso maker that has everything you need and nothing you don't. They have continued to send updates and tips, as well as a couple replacement parts that they were not satisfied with in the original production run. To be honest, the replacement of these...

E. Katz It delivers what it says - excellent espresso, made by YOU. We all do research for products today, try to narrow down our search to an item that fits our needs.After reading an exhaustible amount of information on how to extract espresso, I had decided that I wanted an affordable manual device with very little in the way of producing an excellent shot. There are certain factors to consider with espresso - extraction pressure, water temperature, grind size, and tamp pressure. None of that can be removed from the process, regardless of what...

Dr. J Awesome. I have used this machine for about a week, and it is awesome! I had used an espresso machine frequently years ago, but got sick of the grinding, prepping, priming, etc., especially before work in the morning. So, I eventually gave up and bought a plain-ole coffee maker. Unfortunately, "regular" coffee, to me, tastes like hot water. I even tried a Kuerig, but returned it within a month - it was more convenient, but the coffees are no higher quality than any grocery-store brand coffee. So I...

S Mack Great Affordable Easy to use Expresso maker Firstly; my wife and I are huge coffee lovers. We spend a few hundred a month on Starbucks, CB&TL and Peets (sadly). We've used keurigs, the Vue and other home pod systems. We were looking for a coffe maker that 1) makes good espresso/latte 2) makes good coffee 3) doesn't require massive clean up and 4) doesn't cost $1200. This one beats all I've tried and meets all the criteria.I'd held off the Nespresso because you have to order the pods and it didn't make regular cups of coffee. Both...

RCB An elegant and better way to enjoy your perfect cup of coffee, as intended I am an Italian brat that enjoys coffee more than "most" things, so if a cup is not up to par, I tend to get a little cranky. Just a little. ;)This is a simple to use (and to clean) Moka pot. It is durable, well designed, and makes 3 cups as I prefer. It makes the sort of coffee that I seek in a cup, and the coffee is delicious, never having any grounds in my cup whatsoever. I use fresh coffee beans, ensuring my coffee is always fresh. I grind them, place water in the...

Trudy Wilderbeast One Star Outstanding with delicious coffee-making. The instructions are easy to follow. The self disposal of the coffee cups to the back container does not work all the time. It is not mentioned how frequently to use the demineralization or where to get the material to demineralize. I learned not to dispose of the original box after I disposed of it. This latter issue should be printed on big letters or on the box itself. The coffee at times spills some from the cup when being filled. Temperature of the...

Ms Missy Makes a BEAUTIFUL shot of espresso! I LOVE this machine! It is clean and fast (the thing I loved about my Keurig before I ditched it), and it brews FABULOUS coffee and espresso (something the Keurig did NOT do, which is why I ditched it). I spent years working at a gourmet espresso bar, and I know what a lovely espresso shot with crema looks like-- and this machine makes that, without all the fuss of grinding/measuring/damping/disposing of your own espresso. Honestly, the only reason this doesn't get five stars is because the...

James H. Lui The Closest to Having a Home Barrista in a Single-Cup Ease Unit Just received as a holiday present which goes alongside our collection of brewers (cold drip, cold infused, manual espresso, stove-top pressure, stove-top vacuum, greek stove-top, US drip, Melita drip, Chemex drip/pour-over.) First time top-notch creme came from a machine with a single-serve portioning. Although I wasn't and am still not crazy about non-biodegradable pods (that cannot be composted), the Nespresso's are aluminum and go into the recycling with the pop and beer cans. Looking at...

Dan this is perfect in small kitchens

J. R. R. Fantastic Customer Care Years ago I bought a previous model of the Imusa espresso maker. I have owned several espresso makers in the past, some of them quite expensive, and even now I have more than one. Imusa is my favorite. It makes better coffee than my more expensive pressure bar espresso machine from another company. I think it is because of the temperature. The coffee comes out strong and hot from the tiny Imusa machine. Recently, I contacted the company to see if I could get a replacement on/off knob, because...

MassMan Amazingly Good Pod Coffee

KES Excellent Expresso Maker with Best Tasting Coffee Capsules I have had this expresso machine for a month now and at first when I unpackaged the machine which is about 8lbs -but mainly a plastic build I was a little concerned, however it lives up to its reviews. The Illy coffee pods do taste better than Nespresso, I have used Nespresso a lot and the coffee always tastes a little burnt or bitter this system does not. It is delicious and makes a great crema on top and is so easy to control and adjust.The system is compact easy to clean and...

Nespresso A+C60-US-SS-NE Pixie Espresso Maker with Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother, Chrome

Lisa and I have been very happy with it I bought this about a year ago, and I have been very happy with it. It's impressively well-designed, it's attractive, and it allows me to have a latte (or three) every morning without paying $4.10/each at Starbucks. I love how the drip-catcher flips down the moment I pull my large cup away, so no drips hit the counter, and the red light is a nice feature for warning me that the unit is running out of water (which I fill once a day - why ruin otherwise good espresso with stale bad-tasting...

I Do The Speed Limit Smaller and portable: Pixie is a superb Nespresso machine! The Pixie has got to be the smallest and most portable single-serve coffee machine on the market. It has so much going for it! Like other Nespresso machines, this Pixie produces a top-notch coffee product. This particular model offers a milk frother alongside the coffee maker--and that is a real plus. The two together cost less than if purchased separately.All things considered: The Pixie works every bit as well as the older and larger (but not much larger) CitiZ and the newest...

DeLonghi America BCO430 Combi Coffee and Espresso Machine, Silver

rareoopdvds After a week of fiddling, a good cup of cappuccino This machine is basically 2 devices put into one shell: a coffee maker and an espresso/cappuccino maker. The coffee maker is pretty straight forward with design taken into consideration. The tray for the coffee grounds slides to the side, fill it with a filter, and the water goes down a little chute, which is kinda cool. Press the new button and your coffee starts going. It makes a good cup of coffee when it is done.The espresso machine on the other hand, has about 5 more knobs and...

Otto Correct My wife loves this espresso machine sooooooo much! I don't drink coffee but my wife does, and she was stoked to find out this was on its way. Now that we've had it for a while, she loves it! The espresso half was easy to figure out, works well, and the milk foamer produces good results. Its easy to use and clean and the drinks taste great to her. The drip coffee half is nice too, although we don't use it as much since a whole pot is a lot for one woman to drink. That said, it's still handy for days when she has to wake up really early; she...

AbFab Tammie Beats Nespresso In My Book Absolutely fabulous with flawless performance! Consistent espresso quality cup after cup. I make mocha cappuccinos with the espresso. The machine is gorgeous and easy to use with almost zero chance for error. If you like a bigger pull, then get the Lungo Medium Roast capsules. The only possible down side is the tank is a bit difficult to get out, but I manage by grabbing it on the edges, not a deal breaker at all. I highly recommend this awesome machine. It's a joy to use and my guests love it...

Purchased at Sams about a month ago, this exact model.This is my first espresso machine and I was attracted by the price.I was going to purchase a cheaper mr coffee unit but read that stream driven machines do not generate enough pressure to actually make espresso, this can generate the required 9 BAR Pressure (side note: "15 bar pump" apparently means it CAN generate 15 BAR, but only does it to make 9 BAR through the puck to make your delicious black liquid)...

Alice in Wonderland Makes great espresso... looks beautiful on the stove. I bought this due to concerns of Alzheimer's since I had been begun to use our aluminum espresso maker daily, because our Keurig broke after two years, and I was sick and tired of the disposable quality of electric coffee makers.First time I used this, I made coffee with Seattle's Best Dark Roast and it came out PERFECT! Tasted just like espresso from a local coffee shop or a Starbucks. I thought I'd finally found the perfect espresso maker. Second time I used it, I walked away...

Amulya Well made moka pot This is a well made moka pot (not an espresso maker, despite the name) which, with some care, will make great coffee.First the name - espresso needs 9 atm pressure and temps 88-92 Celsius, among other conditions. Making consistently good espresso at home without $2K plus in equipment and lots of effort is mostly not possible.The moka pot works by forcing hot water up a funnel atop which sit the coffee grounds. The water is forced up by steam pressure but steam does not...

John Not an espresso maker Beautiful design and finish. Well constructed = WOW. But it's not a true espresso maker - it's a coffee maker. Let me explain. Espresso-grind is very fine. The holes in the filter of this "espresso" maker are more suitable to a drip-coffee grind. If you grind for espresso too many of the grounds end up in your cup making the coffee kind of muddy.The 6 cup Bialetti I owned before has smaller holes, approximately half the diameter of those in this product. See photo. Bialetti...

It takes about 15 minutes to heat up, but the wait is worth it for the quality of espresso that you get. The espresso is wonderful and the milk steamer works great as well.

lwberns The best thing that ever happened to me! I love this machine, after trying the delonghi & capresso pump espresso machines, this Bialetti is a dream. It takes a few seconds to warm up, uses capsules which cost about 65 cents each, but makes a perfect cup of espresso every time. The noise is barely noticeable, for a 20 bar machine, it is the best one out there for $150 bucks. I've order a bunch of the pods/capsules on amazon to last a few months. Compared to other machines like the Nespresso brand, this Bialetti machine is not over...

Selib being the good daughter that I am This heavy duty espresso maker is just what the doctor ordered. I must confess that it is something that I would never have bought for myself, but my mom stumbled across a Bialetti, and I just never heard the end of it. Well, I may have heard the end of it but one day she walked off and forgot about her tiny Bialetti on her gas stove. As you can probably imagine it took the handles and knob off that bitty boy in no time. So, being the good daughter that I am, I began cruising Amazon for a...
