WAYYYYY better than a drip brew.Inexpensive, Easy to take apart,When Mixed with a good grinder it‘s better.
Positive Product Points
For a 3bar steamer:
.Travels easy, absorbs abuse,
.Easy to take apart.
.Looks Neat..in a plastic kinda way.
Negative Product Points
.Not fool proof by any means.
.Kinda fussy on the grind and tamp
.The "ON" "OFF" light burns out easy and quick.
.Cheap parts.( go figure)
$60.00 CAN....so like FREE in US dollars.
Used everyday for between 6 and 12 drinks.
With some work the flavor off these inexpensive machines is all right.
Steam is in tight supply , but if managed well there is enough.
The seal ring needs to be kept clean or preasure is lost.
The ABS outer shells takes abuse and then some, the thing is tough.Easy to clean ( which is often).
