Mr. Coffee ECM160 4-Cup Steam Espresso Machine

Wouldn’t it be great to have a fantastic coffee shop right on your doorstep? Well now you can go one better – bringing the coffee shop experience into your kitchen! This machine from Mr. Coffee enables you to make great coffee in the comfort of your own home – whether your beverage of choice is a revitalizing espresso, a deliciously frothy cappuccino or a creamy latte.

Features

This product is not only simple to use – making it an ideal choice for yourself or to give as a gift – but also boasts a great range of drinks and even comes with recipes! Why not try a delicious pumpkin spice latte, or if something sweeter’s more your thing, how about the gingerbread version? And speaking of lattés, this machine creates a light frothy topping – great for cappuccinos too. If you just want a straightforward coffee, it makes a rich espresso brew – just the thing to start the day. This coffee maker is also big on convenience, serving up to four shots with its Easy Pour Glass Carafe – really handy when brewing up coffee for the family first thing, or when you’ve got visitors!

Design

The black and stainless steel construction make the machine both smart-looking and hardwearing. It’s also easy to clean, with a removable froth aid, and a drip tray that’s both removable and washable, helping to keep the surrounding area clean by catching any drips. The drip free spout also helps keep your workspace neat and tidy. It also comes with cord storage, enabling the cord to be neatly stored away when not in use.

Pro’s

There’s nothing worse than getting a great new gadget only to have to spend ages wading through instruction manuals trying to figure out how it works! A great advantage of this machine is that it’s simple to operate, meaning it’s not a military operation just to get a cup of coffee! It’s also much cheaper than a lot of other coffee makers, so you’re not just saving the money you might have spent in coffee shops but also on the machine itself, making it an economical choice.

Cons

Some customers have remarked on the lack of a steaming pitcher or tamper, advising that these need to be bought separately – something to factor in. There have been a few comments about the machine leaking steam. Also, the machine produces steam at a lower pressure than one with a pump. In addition, some customers found the coffee to have a plastic taste, although this certainly doesn’t seem to be a universal view. There have also been a few reports of small explosions from the machine – understandably concerning, although it’s not clear whether this was due to any issue with the machine or whether the machine was used incorrectly. As with any appliance it’s important to ensure this is used correctly and in line with any safety instructions.

Conclusion

This product was rated with 3.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon and is a number one Amazon  bestseller. Mr. Coffee, the company behind this machine, has a range of products including espresso machines, iced tea machines and single serve brewers. This concludes my review and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this product.
