  • Ah, Espresso

    Sep 7, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: no compromise, "this is it" cup of mocha...
    Cons: kitchen space, drainage, water supply, 220V, hernias trying to move it in

    Summary: I remember when I was little, and I used to eagerly crowd the breakfast table next to mom or dad, and watch them drink that mysterious steaming black brew. It had such a wonderful aroma, and I suppose it's every child's dream to emulate the ... read more

  • IMO - only looks good! Very Poor Design..

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks good on the countertop....
    Cons: Not user friendly. Poor engineering for sure!

    Summary: Several years ago, I had a DeLonghi espresso machine. I, like many others, got sick of paying $4+ for take-out cappucino. The machine was about $150, mostly plastic, but worked well. It had separate 1 and 2-cup filters and a tamper. It didn't look as ... read more

  • A fantastic value

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, makes great espresso, relatively inexpensive, very reliable, good design
    Cons: Single heater, inadequate frother, no cup warmer

    Summary: Making a good cup of espresso is delicate. You have to start with good coffee properly roasted, of course. Grind the coffee at the last minute, in a burr grinder (mills heat the coffee and ruin the aroma, and produce an irregular grind unsuitable ... read more

    Pros: great coffee, convenient, money saver
    Cons: steamer drips when in coffee mode

    Summary: After being exposed to the wonder of a fully automatic espresso machine, I knew that I had to have one. Several years later I purchased the Saeco Via Venizia from the US distributor. The machine has performed well for us for 2 years. If I had a ... read more

    Pros: Fast and reliable. Cup heater. Stainless parts
    Cons: It is a bit heavy. Little space between the  pressurized filter and the dip tray.

    Summary: As it is a well- known branch, it is advisable to trust in its performance and durability. All its parts are available in the market so it can be fixed easily. Considering its elements, they are mostly stainless what is a plus when dealing with water and ... read more

    Pros: Looks fancy on the counter
    Cons: Does not work well at all and over priced for its performance.

    Summary: I purchase one of these espresso machines from Starbucks several weeks ago and have had nothing but trouble with it. I tried using Starbucks Espresso grind and their PODS. I have used it more than a dozen times with each grind and still it will not run ... read more

    Pros: Consistently brews excellent expresso.
    Cons: Heavy, steam wand could be a little longer.

    Summary: In the past 15 years we have owned a DeLonghi, Krups and Saeco.  By far, the Saeco Via Venezia has been the best for the money.  We bought it from a former Starbucks manager who won it in a contest.  It is very user friendly and ... read more

    Pros: Works well and that's all I expect
    Cons: None.

    Summary: Maybe Arlington74 has an old design, but my unit has a fill door in the top rear. Just pour in water and no trays to remove. BTW, I like this product and I recommend it.(Thinking about it I must wonder, did Arlington74 not read the ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, perfect espresso, perfect steam
    Cons: None, not one.

    Summary: The Via Venezia machine is a welcome to have in our home. It makes a perfect espresso each and every time and is fast. Works easily and makes either one or two identical shots of espresso in a matter of under a minute. DO NOT BUY ANOTHER MACHINE, ... read more
