Product Overview

Great value! The Russell Hobbs 18623 is perfect for your morning espresso or evening cappuccino. With a built-in milk wand, you can steam or froth your coffee exactly how you like it. So if you fancy something a bit different like a latte, that’s not a problem either. Your coffee won’t cool down too quickly either, thanks to the cup warmer that sits on top.  And don’t worry about making a mess; the drip tray collects any spillages. All you have to do is slide it out, empty it and you’re good to go again.

    very good espresso machine

    "This is probably best purchase I have made in last year, as I love coffee, but my previous coffee maker didn't make hot enough coffee or milk. I have used this machine a lot every day, for couple weeks and Im impressed. It really does make a good hot cup of coffee. Its well made for the price, and gives perfect froth, I prefer using steam pipe without cappuccino attachment it comes with, as its much easier to use and clean."

    Easy to use and great coffee

    "IMPORTANT: Initially I found that, however I tamped the coffee and whatever coffee I used, it was much weaker than I expected/wanted. However, if you use the double filter to make a single cup of espresso, it is absolutely fantastic. In my view, you always have to use the double filter! Otherwise, no problem with the noise, it vibrates a bit but not a problem at all, and the espresso is great (if you use the double filter) with a lovely crema. Great that you can use grounds and great value."

    coffee made

    "Good machine but noisy and vibrates such that the cup moves across the tray and if not spotted can be missed by the coffee stream. Coffee not bad but better flavour if the cup is filled in two stages with a short gap.Instructions not very clear about why drip tray fills up. To register for warranty you are invited to enter a comp to wind a cash prize - however you have to give a huge amount of personal information - I didn't but registered by email but 3 weeks later still haven't heard from them."
