This machine is essentially just one closed up boiling pot of water so use extra care when operating and be sure to release all steam pressure from the wand before either opening up the boiler cap or removing the portafilter.
|Tips and Tricks||
IMPORTANT: Before removing the portafilter or opening up the cap on the boiler, YOU MUST RELEASE ALL THE STEAM PRESSURE. To do so, keep the machine off and simply open up the steam wand with a pitcher underneath it. Allow it to completely release all steam, then turn it off. You can now remove the portafilter or open the boiler cap safely.

My machine just died after a year of service, so I guess that's not too bad. Pls. note I only drink straight espresso. I kept the steamer arm folded out of the way.
4 months ago it started dripping water before I put the coffee arm on even tho' the lever was in the pause position. Over the months the dripping got much worse. Being a mechanical person, I took it all apart, but couldn't take the last section apart to see what was causing the dripping. I assume it was a gasket somewhere. During the last several months the espresso became weaker.
I hate smooth round lids. You must not screw the tank lid on to too tightly or you won't be able to get it off because there is nothing to grip onto. As the pressure builds the lid will naturally tighten anyway.
The espresso doesn't come out super hot, but it never does on less expensive machines anyway, & I can taste the levels of flavors better if the espresso is less hot.
You will need a little pre-marked dip stick to measure how much water is in the tank, as there is not other way to see how much water is in there. When I would re-filled the tank, I didn't have to double check the level again w/ the dip stick because I could hear by the audio ascending pitch of the trickling water (being a musician) when the tank arrived at the full point.
Cleaning is the easiest of any machine I've ever had.
It makes espresso quite quickly.
The filter basket is delightfully big for triple espressos if you want - which I usually did. If I needed a smaller amount, it still worked well.
You can make several espressos in a row if you release the steam through the wand before you yank the arm off.

Impressed with CapressoReview by KoHoSo

This is the fourth of this style of small, less-fancy espresso machines I have had during my lifetime. In the few weeks I have used it so far, I am extremely impressed with the ease of use and options it provides. I really like the strength adjustment knob as it allows me to make mine strong then tone it down for my less hearty friends. Unlike others I have owned, the steam valve opens easily and allows a certain amount of control in the flow.
The main thing I do not like is only a cosmetic complaint and would not prevent me from recommending this to others, and that is the fact that the metallic top is an absolute fingerprint magnet. Other than that, my other complaints are all too typical of any small appliance made these days...the power cord is too short and it's Made in China.
That being said, I am extremely happy with my purchase of this Capresso and would definitely recommend it to others like me that want something simple and in the lower price range.
Easy To Use, Retractable Nozzle, Quick Brewing, Great Taste
Made in China, Short Power Cord, Fingerprint Magnet
