+Ok, I'm a Starbucks Barista and I have to say I prefer the milk froth from this machine over the commercial machine. You can get really velvety, long lasting microfoam with any milk.
+While I LOVE $5K pressurized double boiler machines the multitude of equipment involved means an equal opportunity for that multitude of things to go wrong. I like that the most I'll have to fix in this machine is maybe replacing the rubber seals.
+As for the espresso pour, it took me about 3 lbs of different coarseness of different beans to get it right but WOW it's really working now. The amount of crema depends on your beans and doesn't necessarily indicate the quality of a shot.
-The steam wand only has one hole, it's difficult at first but with practice it's great.
-The gaps along the bottom and top of the espresso chamber. Some of water bypasses the espresso inlets and goes straight to the top.
-It requires skill and persistence.
~Invert the rubber stopper on the center pole. It seems to make for a better seal to force the steam into the espresso chamber rather than the center column.
~Boil water first. If not you'll get semi cold coffee that is just getting forced out without any really brewing.
~Don't tamp it.
~Don't be afraid to really tighten the threaded topper; otherwise it will force pressurized hot coffee all over your walls.
~The steam wand cleans up really easily with a syringe.
~fill the full chamber.
~Research everything you can about this machine and how to properly brew espresso/stream milk.
~Don't give up! I nearly threw this lil guy away because I was so frustrated.
What I like about this CX25P which I just started to use a few times, is the ability to tune the pressure and decide when to open the coffee flow. This is another factor influencing the taste, along the powder/water ratio, ground size and bean type.
I bought the one with the pressure gauge which helps.
I use a low gas flame so the pressure rises very slowly, and I open at 1.2 bar. I also use the full 9 cups grind size for a single cup of coffee which allows for a very strong and tasty coffee, better then the classic two part pot.
The stainless steel is easy to clean.
Haven't yet done much milk steaming but so far pretty happy with the purchase
The steaming wand (the pipe coming out of the side) is metal and so rapidly heats up. As a result, milk burns to the surface. Combined with the crevice where the nozzle attaches, and that results in a very difficult-to-clean steaming wand.
Worse, however, is that the bolt on the bottom, which appears to be glued on, has gotten to the point where water is forced through when pressure builds in the device (possibly as a result of letting it get hot enough for the safety valve to open?). This makes the device entirely unusable for me, as it leaks water out and onto the burner. I may attempt to fix it, but given how tightly glued that bolt seems to be, it won't be easy. Even this aside, though, it always leaked small amounts of steam from other parts around the top.
To fill the coffee funnel, put it in the mouth of a jar with something thimble shaped over the hole. You don't want any coffee grounds in the water or it will plug it up. Then put the funnel in the coffee maker and the 'thimble' will be pushed off in the process and there will still be no coffee in the water chamber.
I would say to read the directions before you jump right in because pressure does build up. The green zone is for coffee. The blue zone is for steam. Beyond that it is probably best to let it cool down first. I also used it to steam clean my stove top in the groves!
