So far I’m loving Barista .. The coffee is smooth and rich, quality, nice aroma..
The machine itself, honestly I was expecting another cheaply made product. That was not what I got. It is mostly metal, very sturdy, simple to use, and looks aesthetically appealing.
You won’t be disappointed at all!
With the 3 month plan I got :
- The Espresso Machine
-( 2) 30 packs of coffee pods
** I’d like to side note though that a pamphlet or typed paper stating what you can expect each month would be helpful.
I was really looking forward to this espresso subscription. Considering the state of the world, I was excited of the prospect of having high quality espresso at home. However, it did not live up to my expectations. The espresso did not have a pleasing taste. I am not a fan of the machine. The instructions are written in broken English. They are hard to follow and figure out. I wanted to adjust the amount of water it used to brew, but could not due to the poor instructions. Also, you have to pay up front for 3 months to start the subscription. So I am now stuck with a machine and 2 more shipments of pods that I will never use.
The espresso is great and the machine is easy to use. I wish the instructions gave you a little bit more info on what happens to flavor when you adjust time and temp but I guess I’ll just experiment with that! I wish the subscription had an option to come with more pods a month. Between hubby and I we usually drink about 4-6
8 shots a day normally but that’s ok. I’ll just have to order more from the website. Totally worth the subscription though.
Working with this company is a total nightmare for me. Thought I should give it a try since there’s a lot of good reviews but that wasn’t the case for. First order didn’t come on time. Emailed the CEO/ President and was told that my product is on the way. After a wk, emailed him again and his response was what my order number and he claimed that they didn’t get the order form cratejoy but why say I’ll received it that same wk when he doesn’t have the order to begin with?! He apologized about not getting my order and sent me xtra pods. Finally got my order but received a white machine instead of black one. Tried getting it resolved but never replied to me anymore. So I was like ok FINE!
September came and waited for my next shipment of pods and not got nothing! Emailed them several times and finally got a reply from CEO again. Asking me for my order number. After thT didnt here from them anymore. Emailed them again through cratejoy website and I got a response from someone in their company and asking what second shipment of pods I’m talking about. I’m suppose to get 180 of pods in total but it’ll be split in shipment every month which I’m sure they know because that’s the deal they have at this website. The first month should be 60 with the machine, another 60 the second month, and lastly another 69...
This is THE BEST espresso coffee I have ever had. I will never buy a To-Go coffee ever again, as I can make it better at home!!!
Why did I wait so long to use this?? I ordered it after Shelter in Place started, and it got lost in the shuffle of college kids being home and the world craziness. Fast forward 3 months and hundreds of dollars in coffee runs later, and I finally opened and used this. I love it. The flavors are great, the ease of use is phenomenal, and clean up is a snap. For the cost of 1 coffee run, I get an entire month of espresso making at home. I love it. My daughter wants one when she moves out. Absolutely my favorite purchase of the year.
I absolutely love this machine and the smooth and tasty espresso shots it makes. I've tried both types of espresso pods as well as the milk pods. I hid the machine from my husband for 2 weeks before I finally let him try it, because I wanted it all for myself and didn't want to order more before the next shipment. I'm almost out, and will most definitely be purchasing the milk pods also. My one and ONLY issue is that you can't customize anything - You do not get to choose the color of your machine, you cannot only have one kind of coffee sent, you get both roasts (Cremoso and Puro) even if you don't like one of them, and I can't add on the milk pods so I have to order them separately and pay shipping.
I know this is a new company, so I really look forward to being able to customize my order. Definitely try this!!!
A REAL cup of coffee!
The machine is awesome! The coffee so far have been delicious! Thank you so much. This is such a great thing to have during this time.
I loved the look of the machine and the smell of the espresso. The issue is that the espresso was weak. It was basically water with an espresso scent. I contacted the owners and also sent a video that I don't think the machine was working. They did not replace it or address the issue. This is one that is to good to be true. I bought a different espresso machine and am out the money on this one. If you like very weak espresso that tastes like water this is an awesome machine. If you like to taste and feel espresso in your mouth, then this is not for you.
Oh, come to Mama. This baby has saved my golden years and is now my favorite thing. Love the milk. Haven't had time to try the calmer pod yet; still working through the button-pushing regimine for heat and amount. Love everything. Ciao
