    NEW COFFEE MACHINE

    5/5
    Recently, my veteran coffee machine gave up the ghost due to longevity. Haveing looked at the miriad of marketed replacements I settled on the Swan Retro on offer. How glad I am that I did! My wife recently completed a course of treatment for cervical cancer and suffered chemo therapy, radio therapy, bracca therapy, followed by a complete hysterectomy and a second (short) dose of chemo therapy - I should add that she's 80 years old, but is now fit and well and running around. One of the things that she has fallen for is a mid-morning cup of coffee, mind you none of your de-caff, or instant stuff. She wants a black strong cup of freshly ground coffee beans and absolutely refuses to forego it. This small Swan machine does the job perfectly and produces a delicious cup of coffee every time. One small peculiarity is that new owners will need to practice a bit with it to get it just right, i.e. cups properly warmed, liquid flowing steadily through the filter, and making sure that there is sufficient coffee in the cup, finally, DO NOT DROWN IT WITH FROTHED MILK. You only need about three quarters coffee to one-quarter milk for a delightful morning (or any other time of day) cuppa coffee.

    Entry level review and user

    4/5
    This is my first espresso machine so not sure what to expect and apologies if my expectations are too low/high. The instructions that come with it are great, telling you how to prep the machine and use the espresso maker and foamer, even include advice on cappuccino, latte, americano and how to make flat/white milk. The machine is easy to clean and relatively quiet when running, even when warming up. For an entry level machine I think it's pretty good. The only thing that lets it down a bit is the 'good to go' lights go off when processing espresso or steam so not sure if the temperature is consistent. All in all I'm happy with it when comparing prices to others and my own expectation levels. I've used pod machines and a Moka previously but prefer this for taste, cost effectiveness and control over how I make my coffee.

    Great little machine...does the job.

    4/5
    Heats quickly and does exactly what it' suppose to. Not given it 5 because normal mugs won't fit, so had to by a slightly smaller mug to fit under the granule sump.

    Good home coffee machine

    4/5
    The coffee machine is good, the coffee taste nice and the milk steamer works well. It would have been better if the milk steamer was longer as it is sometimes difficult to steam the milk effectively with such a short steamer. However, for the price, it is a good machine.

    Very nice

    4/5
    Looks like metal but its plastic, instructions not very good to be honest. Nice little machine does use fair bit of water. Downside my normal mugs don't fit under it so disappointed in that as I like drinking out my mugs. Overal good little machine bit stiff and because its plastic tend not to use to much pressure

    Cafes are better.

    1/5
    This product is essentially a waste of money. It looks the business, it will brew a cup of coffee, but will it be fit to drink? I would thus suggest that you don’t buy this product. Save up and buy an expensive product that actually is worth using. Or nip down to your local cafe. Sincerely David Hearle
