This little machine makes three things: Espresso, Cappuccino and Lattes. With good coffee, all three of these come out fantastic. When first purchased we thought it was going to be low end or seem janky, however, it has proved us wrong. It's well built, easy to clean and extremely easy to operate.
You fill the reservoir in the back with filtered water, power it on and wait for it to warm up (which does not take long), scoop in the coffee in one of two sizes/shots, attach, and select your option. There is an additional step if you want to make lattes and add froth by using the accessory "milk" reservoir.
*Note, we reference "milk" based on your preference (dairy or non-dairy)
We drink almond milk and have had no issues with the attachment, the frothing or delivery of the "milk" from the reservoir. When done, the cleanup is a few steps, from dumping the coffee grounds from the handle attachment, rinsing that out (which comes apart in 3 pieces), then rinsing out the "milk" reservoir, filling it with water and running it through it's self clean cycle. All of these which take a few moments.
The results are fantastic! This is such a great addition to our kitchen and especially if you enjoy coffee in it's various forms.
The packaging used minimal plastic and appeared to be store drop off acceptable, which was a plus. No plastic would be best, but one day we will get there.
