Caffé Birraio Espresso Machine (Black, 1 Piece): A barista level coffee experience at comfort of home.
The machine is perfect as someone would like for domestic purposes. The machine works extremely well. The espresso extraction is perfect with perfect time. One can't believe that they will get so much in this compact package. What I liked most are full-size portafilter, Steel, brass internal components, and an amazing powerful steam wand (Used for a couple of days till now, will update if it weakens over time). I used to have a very expensive Italian machine but that was having multiple issues and had to return due to lack of service from the reseller.But in this case, this machine is made in India, so one can expect great service from the seller, and actually, I experienced that where all of my doubts were cleared over the phone in a very efficient manner.Like everything, there are some designs issues that I feel could be improved are-1. The space between the portafilter and spill tray to put a cup or mug is too cramped, a normal size cup could not be directly placed there. Quite possible that is something that designers don't want and the space is for espresso shot cups only.2. The weight is less, so the machine feels unstable while removing the portafilter, but that is manageable against the benefits and functionality it provides.Overall experience is great and you will get Barista level coffee at home. I also recommend the seller's in-house coffee blends for great taste as I experienced some. Those are simply amazing ,
