Presso Espresso Maker
Advantages: Compact and light, no need for electricity
Disadvantages: Not very versatile
Where and how much?
Amazon! another of my favourite sites! I paid £69 for it in the sale. I think it's usually about £79.
Who is it suited for?
The Presso is a very innovative coffee machine, primarily for the coffee expresso lover. For yourself, or as a gift, it makes for a great treat or present. Its light and compact so fits anywhere and everywhere. Its great for taking away with you if you go travelling. Never be without it! (as long as you have something to boil water with) It features a single or double spout, milk frother (yum!) and of course full instructions! If you enjoy expresso, it's definately the machine to buy! The simple pumping action means you supply the pressure. No need for the use of electricity! It's therefore very eco-friendly and easy to service. The coffee tastes very nice and i've never had a burnt flavoured taste like some seem to have reported. I would say the coffee stays hot for about an hour, which is great as it means I get to have a cuppa once i've finished faffing around getting ready for work.
Are there any negatives?
The supplied milk frother is good, but not as good as a pump driven machine.
It's good, but its not hugely versatile.
Don't add tooooooo much coffee. I did this once and it ended up very lumpy (blurgh)
Summary: A fab cup of coffee as long as you don't add too much!
