Looks cute but doesn't deliver good milk, and not worth the money for me.
Positive Product Points
Beautiful, simple design Wanted something that could live on the stove, not on the countertop Simple to use...more or less
Negative Product Points
Does not produce a decent cappuccino Fickle Leaks Not worth the money
I bought the Mukka because I had read the reviews, and I really wanted a simple, elegant, stove-top espresso and latte maker. I am a cappuccino and other milk-based drinks type of person, so this seemed like a perfect solution for me.
I tried very hard to love this beautiful little machine, but just returned it today and I will be investing in a pump espresso machine instead.
I was simply not satisfied with the milk -- it is not frothy (I understand that we are not looking to get "microfoam" or even creamy milk with this type of machine, but the milk barely even frothed up. At most I would get a mediocre soupy mess which could arguably be called a latte but to me was not really even worth calling it that.
I did continue to use the Mukka just for espresso, and decided to forgo the milk completely, but ultimately decided I would return it and use that $80 towards a more quality machine.
Overall I would say that I used the machine about 20 times and was only satisfied the first few times. The last time I used it, it leaked all over the stove and that clinched my decision to return it.
Very easy -- walked into BBB and walked out. They were great about the return, six months later.
