If you want to make reasonable espresso at a bargain price then you would be better with a stove-top (e.g Then get a milk frother if you like coffee with bubbles!

This machine, although cheap, won't make an espresso coffee as you need approx 9bar pressure at the group head - otherwise you will end up with nasty bitter stuff with no lovely crema. The best budget machine that I have seen is the De'Longhi Treviso - cheapest at Coop £41.99 delivered.

Whatever you go with, remember that you can make good coffee with a cheap machine and good beans but you can never make good coffee with an expensive machine and bad beans. Buy good stuff and grind it yourself - Happy Monkey are a great supplier at a good price.
:thinking: 3-5 bar pressure on an espresso maker LOL
OK for the money but true caffeine addicts may be a little disappointed. The coffee on my machine always turned out lukewarm and the 3 to 5 bar pressure was a bit ineffective. The machine is sat at the back of a cupboard now.
This thing will not make anything like half decent espresso. Avoid.
Its not great, but if you pack-down the coffee in the holder, it helps build up a reasonable amount of pressure.

One of these machines has served me (fairly!) well for 4 years.

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=4]I had one of this type for a long while, knowing no better, but eventually suffered a serious scald necessitating A&E treatment after the outlet to the steam jet blocked and I opened the main lid to refill it, believeing it to be totally empty. It was barely mildy warm, not hot. [/SIZE][/FONT]

Yup. 3-5 bar pressure isn't going to give you anything worth drinking. If you don't want to pay the earth for a machine get a Delonghi Treviso. You can pick them up on eBay for about 20 quid and they make perfectly good cappuccino.
yeah , you need about 15 bar pressure..................get a Gaggia :-D
No matter how cheap this is, you're wasting your money. Cold.
