Consumer Espresso: Espressione Retro
Previous Product Consumer Espresso Next Product

Very retro (natch) looking machine with some great feature (big boiler, super action steam lever), and not so great features (froth aider, aluminum portafilters).

Bottom Line: Not worth the cheap price tag. Wait a couple extra months and save up for something better.
Erik Gallneby (quality: 5.8) 07.23.2007 Rating: 4.4
Bottom Line: I recommend the Cafe Retro to anyone who just want somewhat good espresso, but doesnt care much (or at all) about making the perfect espresso shot.

Bottom Line: Great Crema, Fantastic Froth, Not Idiot Proof
James Lee 11.25.2008 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: Great while it lasted. Saving up for a proper machine. Not for daily use.
