Delonghi EC702/EC710 Review. An Old Premium, Still Worth Buying.

The Delonghi EC702 espresso machine (EC710 in Europe) is one of the last models from ’00s, which is still available on the market. It was a ‘pre-flagship’ model in Delonghi’s range and it’s still worth buying it – it’s better built if compared to modern models, however, have more usablity issues. The construction and all the main parts – boiler, pump etc – didn’t change […]

Should you buy Delonghi’s outdated espresso machines in 2018? De’Longhi BAR32 Retro and EC190/201/220/221 Test & Review

BAR32/EC190 has an outdated design and one of the lowest price. However, 99% of espresso-related parts are the same as used in modern models by Delonghi. One model in Delonghi’s range of manual espresso machines has the record high number of ‘clones’ – different names, under which this machine is sold on different markets. It is known as Delonghi BAR32 Retro or EC220CD in the […]

Krups Calvi Review. The tiniest pump espresso maker with one “but”

It was supposed to be a Krups Calvi espresso machine review. However, it is so hard not to compare it with the Delonghi Dedica EC680/685 almost in every paragraph that it gonna be rather a comparative review 😉 It’s quite a long text (~6-7 minutes reading time) but you can skip directly to the conclusion, where I summarize key cons and pros. Indeed, the Krups […]

DeLonghi EC9335 ‘La Specialista’ Review. Semi-professional? Nope.

De’Longhi La Specialista EC 9335 will be available on the global market since 2019. However, I had a chance to test this machine during the IFA 2018 Trade Show in Berlin this September. Thus my article is probably the first DeLonghi EC9335M review on the Web. I will add more information and thoughts later because DeLonghi is likely to make small modifications before launching serial […]

Bialetti Brikka Tested12

Bialetti Brikka vs. Moka Express Comparative Test & Review. Does Brikka make real espresso as pump espresso machines do?

Most of Bialetti’s stove-top coffee makers (aka moka pots) have similar construction and varies only by design and materials. There are classic aluminium models like Moka Express that Bialetti’s factory in Italy has been producing with no changes since 1933. There is also a Bialetti Junior – same design and construction, but made in China and, thus, cheaper. There are many stainless steel versions: cone-shaped […]

My review of the Mr. Coffee Café Barista / Oster Prima Latte espresso machine and its clones. Plus a comparison with the Delonghi EC860.

This is an OEM product. The espresso machine, which is sold as the Mr. Coffee Café Barista in the States, is known in other countries as the Oster Prima Latte, Breville PrimaLatte VCF045/046, Sunbeam EM5000, etc. (see the full list of clones here). All the points in my review also concern these models. November 2018 Update: New Mr. Coffee One-Touch CoffeeHouse, which is for 100% […]
