a Saeco Via Venetia for many years ... and I see absolutely no difference in the results. The Cuisinart seems to
be well built ... all the buttons and switches have a very solid feel about them ... and the case appears to be
brushed metal not plastic but I really can't tell ... and to my eyes at least is very attractive ... all my friends
who saw it thought it cost a real lot more then I paid ... Its not very noisy and the frothing wand works well also
... and it does use pods for those so inclined ... at this price point (~150CDN)its a very nice buy!
A thoughtful touch from Cuisinart was including a metal frothing cup which saves the end user a fair bit of money. The enclosed
tamping tool works but some people might want to get a better one as made out of plastic and is a bit clumsy to hold...
but it was included and it does work ... The machine has a three year guarantee which is really very nice so if you
are in the market for a highly functional espresso machine I suggest that you take a look at the Cuisinart. Not a big
name in the espresso game but big time results ...
Concerning the water temp for making espresso ... I made the mistake of making espresso with the steam/hot water button set on the hot water setting ... since there are only two icons I presumed that was the correct one .... the steam/hot water knob actually has THREE positions ... the middle UNMARKED setting is used for espresso ... but for some reason there is no marker to show that position.Read more ›
Some observations after one month of use:
1. The coffee holder is about 1/3 smaller than the last Gaggia. We make doubles for each of us every morning and about half the time we notice a weaker flavour.
2. It took about a week of use before it would make a reliable coffee. With the same grind on the beans, flow through could vary from 15 sec to 10 minutes from one cup to the next. It is better now.
3. The crema is great compared with prior machines, which often had none.
4. The volume of foam is much greater and more consistent than the other machines (although the steamer wand needs cleaning after every use). Foam varies from larger to smaller bubbles (smaller is richer).
5. The machine seems a lot less robust than the other models we've known. It already leaks a bit when making coffee, which is not a good long run indicator (our Gaggia wore down the seal gasket between the coffee holder and the machine over 7 years).
6. This machine releases the pressure after stopping the coffee cycle. This is good for preventing dripping, but means the waste grinds are always moist and messy to dispose of. Other machines maintained enough pressure to push all the water through (as drips though) and we could just "rap" the coffee holder upside down on the garbage rim and it would come out in a neat plug. With this machine we need a spoon to scrape it out and then a big rinse putting grinds all over the sink to clean it for the next coffee.
If it continues to work like this for the next 5 years, it will be good value. I'm not sure the 3 year warranty will cover seals and leaks.Read more ›
No complaints so far about the Cuisinart, but be aware it has no automatic feature; once you turn the knob counter clockwise to make a cup, you need to stay very close and be ready to switch unit back off as soon as coffee color coming out begins to pale, otherwise it'll just empty whatever water qty you have in the reservoir in your cup and you'll end up with diluted expresso, if not a mess.
It comes with all the tools necessary to make a brew except for the coffee beans and the grinders. the top is made of a durable plastic and warms up when the machine's power is on to allow preheating of your espresso cups. the holes in the filter allow for single or double brewing a the same time.
The reservoir is subtle and hides in the back. it can be removed to fill our the top lifts and tilts to allow pouring of water into the reservoir.
the drain in the bottom is connected to the steam line but pulls out very simply.
I would advise against emptying it while the machine is powered on.

Great machine. Just be sure not to use coffee that is ground too fine, as this will plug up the machine.Published 1 month ago by Edward A. Collis
Works pretty well, although it's insanely loud. The cover of the tank vibrates when the machine is running. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Cyril Robert

I bought this machine at Canadian Tire, that's why I will not appear as a verified buyer.

So far I haven't had the problems that others have had (hopefully I'm not tempting fate by typing this). I'm reasonably happy with it. I don't use the cheater on the wand. Read morePublished 13 months ago by iqi616
