A pump machine is the most traditional and well-known way to make espresso, using the filter holder and ground coffee. This simple yet effective machine requires only three buttons to operate, makes both espresso and cappuccino and is an ideal introduction to the world of coffee, as well as offering a hands-on Barista experience at home.

The high-performance, professional-level pressure of the Bar 14 ensures that your coffee will taste fantastic, with no limit to the number of cups produced. The removable reservoir holds 1 Litre of water and can be refilled at any time, while the boiler is made from stainless steel for a longer life.

The swivel steam pipe mixes steam, air and milk to produce a rich froth for a perfect cappuccino, and the unit is built to accommodate either full-size mugs or espresso cups, depending on your coffee preference.

The filter storage department contains a permanent filter and the Treviso also includes a built-in coffee tamper, deep removable drip tray, and separate coffee and steam thermostats.

Great tasting coffee from this machine...
banned#2
I got this last year. It was £50 from Amazon and that was a deal at the time.
Lovely looking machine and takes up no room, not like those with the jug. When i get it right the coffee is lovely but its a struggle to make hot coffee so i warm the cups first. You need to get a small jug for the milk frothing. I recommend a tall narrow jug if you can get one, i never managed to find on myself.
Very easy to clean the tray area.

Great tasting coffee comes from decent coffee beans. <3

heat from me

whateveryouwant: did you try to do what it says in the suer manual? Leave the Machine one for at least 15 minutes before making the coffee? I usually leave it on long enough and if the light goes off while I make the coffee I just stop and wait until the light will be on again....The coffee is always hot...

Yep I got this machine and you need to turn it on at least 15/30 min before to get the water to the right pressure.

When i said i struggled to get hot coffee i though my problem was cold cups and then getting the timing right with the frother. I wasnt sure how long i had to let the machine warm up so i was guessing. I use small cups so it cools down faster anyway. I will now do as you do lol.

Before i got the machine i looked at the reviews and every one was moaning that the frother didnt work well. I know from experience that it works perfectly if you do it right. I will now give the machine time to heat up first then i should have perfect coffee.

I love mine and hopes it lasts me a long while. It does everything it should do without being stupidly fancy.
I have a feeling that this was advertised at £99 and i got it for half price last xmas.
I am getting my dad one this year as he always stands looking at mine till i make him one :3

I have had two of these over MANY years (It's a while since they have been this cheap)

15 or 30 minutes heating????
I have NO idea what you are talking about, mine is up to temperature in a very few minutes, and little more to get to steaming temperature for the milk!
The amount of water to go through is a tiny amount, it doesn't heat up a whole litre! Without looking at it, I think they are either 1300 or 1700Watts, half an hour at that output is enough to cook a full meal, elt alone warm an espresso cup of water!

They produce amazing coffee for the price, but there is a bit of a knack to doing it, so don't buy if you are not willing to put the effort into it, as it will then be a total waste of time and money.

Tips.
Boil water, use it to heat the cups, and even more important, the metal brewing head otherwise the coffee will be FAR too cold. Put it in a jug or large cup in the hot water, and as it is top heavy that way, careful you don't knock it over.
If using more than one batch at a time (and it is a fiddle to do that) do it immediately as the thermostat switches off once up to temperature, and it is starting to cool straight away.

Buy coffee ground specifically for espresso machines, as that's the only way it will work properly, and tamp (press it down) fairly hard using the plastic tamper, but not so hard it won't pump through! That's a bit of practice too, and not always something people an get on with at first. Don't be limp wristed about it

Don't try to put TOO much water through the coffee, it is espresso, it's meant to be a small amount, all you will do is wash bitterness out and it will be watery too !

Do the frothing LAST, as once you put that temperature up to steam the milk, it tends to be too hot to use for producing coffee for several minutes.
Semi skimmed or skimmed milk froths best, and also has the advantage of tasting less "cooked" if you heat it too much!

A great buy, but if making a cup of proper tea from loose tea in a pot is too much hassle for you, then don't even think about this, as it (and most other machines too!) is FAR more work and fiddle than that.

Oh... ALWAYS use filtered water, they are a TOTAL pain to descale, (and costs for the stuff!) and with a filter, it lasts at least TEN times, (maybe more) as long before needing that effort.

Once they start to scale up they drip, and make a very poor performance, so avoid it!

Result, i found my user manual:p

For expresso you have to preheat for half an hour, at least.
I think i might reaquaint myself with the instructions lol. If anyone wants to know anything can take a gamble and ask me. X)

Well if the heating element has been changed in them, then half an hour is ridiculous, I certainly wouldn't want it, I have had two others since I bought my last one, and went back to the old one as mine was so good. IN half an hour I could probably make a good dozen cups with mine, and it is the identical name and visibly identical

What power rating is the unit now then, one web site says 1.1Kw, half the amount of a cheap kettle, half an hour is a lot of water heating!!? Probably 4 kettles-full, not tiny cupful!
It is ESPRESSO by the way, nothing EXPRESS about it, particularly with half an hour heating

YouTube has NUMEROUS videos of this machine in use Not suggesting they all offer good advice, but none of them take half an hour to heat up!

This one is interesting,good results even if the person doing it seems to have SEVERE OCD, it is not quite as hard as that!

This shoiws the power of the steam!

I am sure i have had hot coffee from mine in a lot less than that time. I wait till the light/OK to come on. There is a sticker under mine with ratings thing on it.
My manual says....'In order to obtain espresso coffee at the right temperature, it is absolutely essential to preheat the machine by pressing the main 'on/off' switch at least half an hour before making the coffee.'

I cant see them bringing out a new improved model that takes longer to heat.

When i use mine next i am going to see what the difference is of when the light comes on and waiting half an hour, probably nothing. :D

1100w mine says so the same. Maybe they have read reviews from people moaning about the water not being hot enough and changed the advise or something.

well tbh I never had cold coffee out of it.... Most of the times I dont let it heat up for 30 min instead of that as soon as the light went off i stop the brewing (top button) and wait until the light is on again then press the button again until I get the amount for 2 cups.

Regarding steaming, I got the best milk ever with it... At the beginning while the steam pressure is very high I let it stay inside the milk, when the steam calms down a little bit I keep the frother 2-3-4mm above the milk. After the milk is ready you need to immerse the frother completely in the milk and heat the milt to 60-75 degrees with the steam...I even have a video cassette for it but unfortunately no video ;)

I've just made a coffee, I can confirm that the coffee is hot! Also I have an energy monitor and the machine is taking up 1kw only when the frother or the brewing works otherwise no.

In the first movie that you posted if you have a look, as soon as the guy starts the brewing the light goes off(this happens also with my machine if I make the coffee as soon as I get a red light). When I make the coffee the red light is on almost until the coffee is ready but anyway I stop the brewing as soon as the light goes off and wait for the light to come on again.

In the second movie the steamer is not at the full rating (same story, light is off), in my machine the steamer is a lot more powerful and sometimes i need to leave head in the milk because otherwise the milk with not get creamy(too much steam).

Hope it helps anybody...

Exactly, that's just the way mine works too.

I agree with you about the light thing. I have done exactly as my booklet suggests. If i let the machine heat up for 30 mins then the light stays on for the whole time but if i dont heat the machine long enough the light goes off during the water delivery. I assume if it goes off then the water wont be as hot as not waiting
The bit i dont understand though is what is actually heating up during the 30 minute preheat? Its not the water so it has to be the element thing inside but quite why it takes that long is beyond me..oO
