Extremely reliable machine from Redmond WA on 07/01/2012
I had the 1 cup machine for about 15 years now and it's still looks and performs like new. The quality is excellent but you should follow some basic guidelines before using this or any other stove-top espresso machine. 1 - Fill with cold filtered water up to the suggested level. 2 - Fill the filter with fine espresso ground coffee and DO NOT press the coffee down like you would do with an electric espresso machine. 3 - Make sure that the top part "snaps" into the bottom part. 4 - Use low heat or flame, do not close the lid, and remove once the top container is almost full. 5 - Close the lid and let rest for a couple of minutes. 6 - Enjoy. I grew up in Italy and I have quite some experience with coffee and machines. The Alessi is pricey but worth it every penny. And it's also featured at the MOMA in NY!

Good espresso, but too small from buffalo, ny on 07/27/2011
Used daily for morning coffee — the espresso tastes great, better than my previous maker. Do carefully review the instructions. It is well made and attractive. The "innovative" design, where the handle swings up and then down to click over a metal latch, and there is no twisting to screw the top onto the base, is nice, but will leak if you use even just a bit too much espresso or water. It also tends to leak a few drips from the brass valve when pouring unless you really let all the water evaporate (but don't let it cook without water!). Note that the maker is small — 3 cups means three cups of espresso, and you really don't even get that. If you are looking to serve more than two people, get something else.
