Review 1 for Espressione Cafe Charme Espresso Machine, Black

Extremely disappointing

I had high hopes for this product. I got this home, read the instructions through twice. I tried to lock the filter holder on empty for practice and found it very difficult to get locked into place. I felt like I had to force it and was concerned it would bend the metal. I followed the directions to the letter. Using the measure included I placed two full measures as per the instructions, but the filter would not lock on at all. I had to empty half of the coffee out in order to fit it in the machine, again with difficulty. I thought espresso was mediocre and the crema was almost non existent. I cleaned the machine and took it back. I have a $30.00 steam unit which makes better espresso than this one. It is not worth the price tag. I wanted this because it has a resevoir that would allow making several cups of espresso without having to refill the machine. My advise... Save your money! It isn't worth it. Maybe my unit was defective but I am not getting another to find out.

Review 2 for Espressione Cafe Charme Espresso Machine, Black

Great Espresso/Cappuccino Machine

I love this machine. It is well designed for eveyday use. Cleaning is a snap with the removable tray, and nozzle. I can't get over how strong the steam is...my milk triples in volume effortlessly and the foam is thick and dense. It operates noiselessly. I am also surprised at how quickly it heats up, brews and steams. Used the Espressione ese coffee pods and they are wonderful.

I love this item. I got it for Christmas from my hubby and I have saved about $50.00 so far because I can make my coffee at home instead of buy it out. I love, love, love, it.
