Miki, Bracknell I love my coffee

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Love the coffee! once it's primed and heated, it's ready to go
Bad points:
can't get the hang of the steamer, doesn't seem to heat the milk, so have resorted back to the microwave for my latter milk.

Keith, Sutton Coldfield Lifelong "real" coffee lover.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is very satisfying to make coffee like a real barista but in your own kitchen.
The tank holds enough water to let me keep topped up with cafeine without needing to fiddle about refilling the machine all evening.
The flexibility of being able to use pods as well as "proper" coffee is great as it saves the mess when I'm in a hurry.
Bad points:
The drip tray is OK but could be a bit more substantial.

Confirmed purchaser

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
looks very stylish
Bad points:
The on button is at the back of the machine so its difficult to move out each time you want to use it, i had it pushed back on the worktop so it was a pain. The water tank needs lifting out from the top so you would need to keep it away from wall cupboards as its too big to lift out without moving the machine out again! When the machine is dispensing the coffee it vibrates and actually moves the cups, the quality of the finished product is poor, no creme on the esspresso. there are better products available for the money.

Gemma, London

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Its fairly simple to use, particuolarly if you are familar with using coffee machines. Really sleek and easy to tuck away in the conrner of your kitchen. Fairly quick to brew the coffee.
Bad points:
You can only fit a shot glass or small mug under the machine, other side its too small. It takes a while to cool down.
