"Put water in."

Having the touch screen makes making drinks in the morning so easy. Their four cups is approx 8 ounces of water. I am absolutely in love with this little machine. This changes depending on the particular espresso beans used. Makes fantastic micro foam for the milk. I love Espresso, easy to install and should be work great. I am very happy with this purchase, well worth the money.

Hamilton Beach 40792 Final Thoughts

"A must have accessory."

It is at least as good as the premium coffee shops in town. Clean the removable parts before you start and the smell goes away over time. Wife says the coffee I make with it is as good as the professional coffee shop. The set up of the machine-- somewhat tougher than most. Yep, some folks chipped in to buy it for her. Received it quick, nicely packaged, no damages. So, my vote is that the PID add-on is optional, a convenience but not essential.

De'Longhi EC155M First Impressions

"It is absolutely useless."

The instructions were easy to understand and not in broken English. Pass on the Starbucks at the grocery store or the Starbucks at the Starbuck stores. Pitcher, which I would recommend, it makes steaming a lot easier. I bought this machine after doing some research and watching some videos. Then we tasted the espresso, flat white, and cappuccino coffees. Coffee unit lasted barely 2 years before its control knob disintegrated. Shout out to the best baristas in AK!

"I am very impressed."

So its been two months since i got this and i gave it one more star. Pitcher, which I would recommend, it makes steaming a lot easier. Having said all that I am really loving this machine! I promise you will not be disappointed. New to make coffee, have not tried yet. Machine is small, portable and easy to use. It's worked really well but has very little control over the settings.

"It is awesome!"

The fresh-ground beans really make all the difference on any equipment. It has to be a super fine, powdery grind. The specs were as good or better than any non-commercial espresso maker. I highly recommend the Barista Touch. It still works great and I love using it and still recommend it. Must find the balance between coffee, grind and weight. Easy operation, excellent frothing, good coffee extraction.

"I have zero complaints."

The not so good- there is a technique to getting the best brew. The not so good- there is a technique to getting the best brew. Filter basket assembly and carafe are a match to my new Bella. But what do you expect blowing hot steam out of a tube into milk! So, my vote is that the PID add-on is optional, a convenience but not essential. I have owned my Barista Touch for almost a month now. It's worked really well but has very little control over the settings.

De'Longhi EC680M First Impressions

"I'm happy with mine."

I tend to use a little more water than indicated. Pitcher, which I would recommend, it makes steaming a lot easier. As seen by so many positive reviews, this is a great little machine. Breville should do a better job keeping these in stock. No, there's no crema, and yeah that's a bummer. Overall I'm extremely happy with this machine so far. This is one of the best product purchases I have ever made!

"It arrived very quickly."

No, there's no crema, and yeah that's a bummer. Even my daughter, who used to be a barista was impressed. I have owned my Barista Touch for almost a month now. This machine makes a good espresso, cappuccino, or latte with very little effort. It is very easy to use and makes a great expresso. This is not just push one button, however. It still works great and I love using it and still recommend it.

"The reviews are mixed."

I used this machine to cook coffee several times. Finally I can make consistently delicious high quality espresso drinks. I can't speak for longevity but there have been no issues whatsoever. So its been two months since i got this and i gave it one more star. Yep, some folks chipped in to buy it for her. That means you need to watch it while it's heating up and then shut it off manually. I've never liked doing manual milk frothing.

"Also, very easy to clean!"

Power light small and narrow, not easy to see in bright kitchen light. This is not just push one button, however. Ok, so I spend WAY too much money at the coffee shop. I am in love with this coffee maker. Lastly, I use bottled water, and this machine uses a lot of water. Even if it stopped working tomorrow it would still be worth what we paid for this. Received it quick, nicely packaged, no damages.

"This is all I use now."

Doesn't take up much counter space and makes excellent espresso and Lattes. This coffee machine is running well. The instructions are not the greatest. New to make coffee, have not tried yet. There is also a process to using the machine called temperature surfing. Boil only the amount of water you intend to use, plus a little'for the pot. Pass on the Starbucks at the grocery store or the Starbucks at the Starbuck stores.

Try different kinds of milk and creams and see what gives you the best results. Pitcher, which I would recommend, it makes steaming a lot easier. The not so good- there is a technique to getting the best brew. But I must say I was surprised by the result. I love Espresso, easy to install and should be work great. Used a few times and so far it's pretty decent. The machine looks beautiful from all sides too.

"With steamed milk."

And it is top notch at frothing milk. Clean the removable parts before you start and the smell goes away over time. Considering the price, I am incredibly impressed with the quality of this machine. As seen by so many positive reviews, this is a great little machine. Now I can stay at home on weekends and make myself a delicious cup of coffee. Now that may be true, or it just may be the way they are making the coffee. This little espresso maker is awesome for the price!

"But hang in there."

It is generally accepted that 9 bars is needed to make a perfect espresso shot. Pass on the Starbucks at the grocery store or the Starbucks at the Starbuck stores. I bought this machine after doing some research and watching some videos. The spout is wide and you get a little bit of a head but not much. For the price it's a good machine, nice look to it and the most important. Having the touch screen makes making drinks in the morning so easy. It's worked really well but has very little control over the settings.

"Use cold water guys!"

Definitely saving me money, and get to enjoy full bodied flavors at home. Yes you do have to warm it in microwave but 30 seconds and done. Their four cups is approx 8 ounces of water. This may be true of other brands of espresso makers as well. Filter basket assembly and carafe are a match to my new Bella. But what do you expect blowing hot steam out of a tube into milk! Overall, I am very pleased with this Sowtech Espresso Machine.
