Reviews around crema (4.87 of 5)

  • The crema on the Fiamma and the crema on the Staresso were indistinguishable.
  • It was excellent, good crema, etc, but didn't quite have the true espresso flavor.
  • I was skeptical about how the espresso would taste, but the espresso has good flavor with a nice crema.
  • Prior to failure I very much liked the quality of espresso, good crema strong single shot
  • Every shot of espresso made with this always has always come out good with a great crema

  • I have the espresso machine as well but this STARESSO is extremely easy to use, clean, and get me to go on with my day quickly

  • Compact, easy to clean, and makes a great shot of espresso.
  • Overall, the machine does make a great espresso shot when used properly.

  • Easy to use, easy to clean and make a good shot of espresso
  • Lastly, the shot it makes, while neat looking at first, with all its cool crema, is a lie

Reviews around cup (4.35 of 5)

  • It makes a decent cup of coffee but nowhere near espresso
  • It was very easy to use and made a delicious cup of espresso
  • Only time i get grounds in my shot is when i dont clean the cup for the grounds and plastic
  • Only feedback is the cup is loose in the holder and moves up and down quite a bit, might pose a risk of breaking it not sure yet
  • UPDATE 1: I used my old Staresso cup, and both filters on the unit failed

Reviews around quality (4.31 of 5)

  • As long as you preheat it and use fresh ground high quality coffee (and get the grind right and tamp it tight) it delivers top notch espresso
  • Easy to use and delivers a very good quality espresso shot for when I'm at work.
  • The build quality is very good and the taste of my first espresso is excellent
  • BUT the quality like all chinese products is substandard
  • I don't want to leave a negative review to impact their score, but I can't take the fact that I got a product with such awful quality

Reviews around machine (3.57 of 5)

  • Rather than this product, I'd recommend something like an aeropress or even just a really cheap motorized espresso machine
  • We'd rather not have a bulky espresso machine in our house, and this has worked great as a substitute
  • This is my first portable espresso machine and I love it
  • Other then that I would recommend this product if you want the espresso but can’t afford a $200 plus machine.
  • I like that this portable espresso machine is small and really compact

Reviews around thing (3.43 of 5)

  • This thing is so inconsistent with the consistency of espresso and amount of coffee grounds that wind up in it
  • I took it with me and it was the best thing I ever did.
  • Wow, this thing makes genuinely delicious and rich espresso
  • Wow - this thing makes amazing coffee, at the same level of perfection (and probably a little bit better) then our at home machine.
  • But the best and most wonderful thing is the espresso shot that it gives

Reviews around html5 video (2.94 of 5)

  • I don’t have those yet and it slows down my preparation.-Don’t bother with the pump on the Staresso to froth
  • Your browser does not support HTML5 video.
  • Actually really difficult to pump (like two hands and a lot of leverage)I’d like to make a few shots at a time.... it makes ONE small shot, and it takes a significant amount of effort to do so
  • n’t fine your coffee grounds too much
  • n’t recommend buying this product because of its flawed design mechanism

  • n’t fine your coffee grounds too much
  • It was still watery and bland, and the texture was still completely wrong... and I wasted quite a bit of coffee just to get that far
  • The first few tries I got a lot of grounds in my glass, giving it a gritty texture and basically ruining the shot

Reviews around roast (2.54 of 5)

  • It also makes great espressos using Peet's medium roast ground coffee.
  • The best results for me is with a medium dark roast organic bean that I grind myself to a medium fine powder
  • Works well and makes good espresso - not as good as with a standard espresso machine, but very enjoyable.
  • n’t recommend buying this product because of its flawed design mechanism
  • At first I loved this espresso maker, and if it continued to work as it did originally I would give 5 stars

Reviews around plastic (2.41 of 5)

  • Even though the plastic seemed 100% fine and it wasn't a bad drop at all, after that I couldn't screw the parts back together
  • the espresso measuring cup which doubles as a tamper should be made of metal vs cheap plastic; otherwise, I highly recommend this space-saving machine.
  • At first I loved this espresso maker, and if it continued to work as it did originally I would give 5 stars
  • The scoop is useful to tamp the coffee, but it is made out of a cheap plastic (hence 4 stars)

Reviews around bite (2.28 of 5)

  • It takes on average about 30 or so pumps depending on amount of coffee, as pressure builds in the tank it does become a bit harder to pump as pressure builds and it takes more than half of the pumps before espresso begins to spray into your cup, but it is worth it
  • It takes quite a bit to clean it thoroughly, but I guess it's better than having another appliance on the already full countertop
  • A teeny bit fussy to clean (make sure you keep track of the tiny filters and O-rings and don't run them down a drain or lose them in the trash), but otherwise nearly perfect.
  • Clean up is a bit of a process but well worth it when you are saving money by making espressos at home.

Reviews around espresso grind (1.74 of 5)

  • You don't even have to use expensive ground coffee -- as long as you get the ultra-fine espresso grind, your coffee will come up with a good 1/4" of crema on the top.
  • With this unit, that is all set...all you have to do is get the right grind and tamping (espresso grind, and make sure you tamp it with the provided measuring cup), and you will get the REAL THING

  • Love that it can make hot espresso, cold brew, and my milk foam
  • The cold brew just produces slightly murky, tasteless water

  • Actually really difficult to pump (like two hands and a lot of leverage)I’d like to make a few shots at a time.... it makes ONE small shot, and it takes a significant amount of effort to do so
  • I have lost the round disc that fits in bottom of coffee basket that functions as the filter and there seems to be no way to replace it
  • After using the machine for the very first time I lost the disc when I tapped the filter basket over a trash can and the disc came out with the grounds.3
  • You then twist the silver disc on top until it pops out, and you begin to pump with all your might
