    Looks can be deceiving

    This coffee machine looks really nice but has a couple of basic design flaws: the milk wand is too short and there’s no way of lengthening it; also, the pump is not strong enough to pass water through if the coffee is too finely ground. On the plus side it heats up quite quickly, but overall I’m quite disappointed.

    Beautiful looking machine and makes an impressive coffee!

    Had been debating buying this coffee machine for quite some time as I kept seeing great reviews. All I can say is I just wish I'd ordered it sooner, it's absolutely fantastic! Looks stunning in my kitchen and although I have limited worktop space it takes up very little room. Easy to use and makes a gorgeous coffee. I don't drink espresso but wanted it for making lattes and cappuccinos, both have turned out really well, I'm so pleased I bought this item. Highly recommended!

    A great cup of coffee

    Smeg are known for their quality and style and this espresso machine does not disappoint. It has an elegant curved look and a compact design that would make it a great fit for most kitchens. So far we have only used this coffee machine with its default and not felt the need to change them as the coffee is delicious, a rich dark espresso with a thick crème. For those who like their coffee milky it also has a milk steamer. Unfortunately it does not come with a metal jug for steaming the milk so we have been using a mug which makes it hard to tell how hot it is. Cleaning the machine is easy and simple as all parts are easy to take off and put back on. This is especially impressive as the machine feels sturdy and well built. Instructions are easy to follow and clearly describe everything, from making your first cup of espresso to editing the settings to cleaning, so even if you are new to coffee machines you will not have any problems. I would recommend this coffee machine to any coffee lover. It makes fantastic coffee and looks great while its doing it.

    Great Looking Machine that makes decent Coffee.

    Retro looking machine that makes a bit of a centre piece in the kitchen. Very functional, well built and makes a decent cup of coffee for the home.


    Really easy to use, makes great coffee quicker than boiling the kettle to make instant. Never need to pay £3 at a coffee shop ever again!

    Great Espresso maker - instructions could be better

    This is a great and attractive machine. Just could have done with instructions that made some pretty simple things obvious - like being able to pull out the higher drop tray and put a full size mug in and making an Americano.

    Quality product

    Exceptional quality and looks fabulous! Easy to use and a great cup of coffee.
