  4. I have an old Salton machine that I got nth-hand, & it looks like I might have the 20 or 30 year old ancestor of this type of machine, with the no tamp included, fixed wand, even the design of the carafe & the portafilter basket. I'm amused at the idea that this has just been refreshed for the next generation haha

  7. It makes me actually mad that you can make beautiful latte art on coffee with no crema and with a ten cent steam wand. I will contact the Istituto Espresso Italiano so that they will seize this machine and shut this operation down.

  11. I bought the grandfather of this machine (under the Krups brand) back in 1989 when I was in college. This was at a time when home grinders did not exist, and the only coffee available for use with this machine were bricks of preground Mokapot style coffee. As pathetic as this machine looks today, I made tons of milk lid classical Italian cappuccinos with this in my student dorm, and they gave me tons of pleasure. Which was only eclipsed a few years later when I went to study abroad and found myself in Rome, Italy, where I had the orgastic experience of enjoying a proper espresso for the first time seated outside a cafe in the deserted square in front of the Pantheon at 7.30 on a summer’s morning. Which was the multi sensory experience kind of bliss that only comes once in a lifetime.

  14. I had a version of this machine several decades ago. At best it made ok coffee, but then I was buying cheap ground coffee so there wasn't much hope. Watching this made me a bit nostalgic, but I think I'll keep my Breville Touch, thanks.

  15. I had one of these in college, but I believe branded as Proctor-Silex. The coffee is obviously not espresso, more akin to a moka pot I suppose. Worked for the time. But the steaming function was far ahead of most other machines that I’ve used in the sub-$200 category.

    Also I think it works better with a darker Italian roast.

  16. Fun review! It's nigh impossible to coax drinkable shots from from an el cheapo like that one. I have a similarly designed el cheapo that I use when staying at a remote cabin. I always opt to add steamed milk to el cheapo shots, rather than the straight espresso I'd normally have at home (milk hides many extraction ills). The grind is important for el cheapos and it requires patient experimentation. The grind I use on my prosumer at home is much too fine for the el cheapo. But, a can of Illy "Ground Espresso" Intenso (dark roast) is the sweet spot for my el cheapo so it might be for other el cheapo brands as well. BTW the Illy grind is much too coarse for the prosumer, but pretty much as good as it gets for my el cheapo. I've experimented with various distribution & tamping techniques on the el cheapo, but since there's no bottomless portafilter to make a visual assessment, and I don't have a refractometer to test the TDS, I judge the extractions with a tried and true taste test. The best el cheapo hack I've found so far is a manual pre-infusion step. For that, I gingerly sprinkle hot water from my tea kettle over the tamped puck until I imagine it's almost saturated. For $30, an el cheapo is a fun challenge to try to get the best out of it. But I'm thankful the el cheapo is not my every day machine.

  23. The manual steam powered espresso machines are better then the pressurized machines!
    At least they don’t ever extract the coffee.
    What price do you have to go up to to get espresso that’s real and not over extracted?

  24. So I bought this. And a point you made echoes. It seems more like coffee than espresso. I packed it as tight as I could. Still seems watery. I should return it and spend for the quality. Right?

  26. Good video and nice kitchen- Ikea? Looks like ours. Going for the Steve Jobs look? Didn't work out so well for Beth. A little more elbow grease on the stainless though! Just bought a nice stainless steel Moka pot. Any recommendations on a device to steam up some nut milk? I would rather not hold an electric wand for 5 minutes every day. They sell electric and also steam contraptions.

  27. Hard to get good espresso setup for 30 dollars. On the other hand you can get amazing espresso from 300-500 dollar machine with paired with a grinder in the same price range and a bit of skill. If you want to use pre ground coffee you might get away with 100 dollar machine. In either case, if you only have 30 dollars moka pot is a good choice.

  28. I had one very similar to that back in the 1990s; it made a strong coffee, not espresso, but you could steam/froth milk. Given that I could only find espresso at a couple of Italian restaurants at the time, it was OK. I used Medaglia D'Oro "Italian Roast Espresso Style Ground Coffee." Mine did come with a milk pitcher, and yes, the scoop was also the tamper.

  36. I found a machine just like this, but with more pressure control on the steam, for £5! It was in a charity shop and apparently made in the 80s/90s.
    It was cafe select or something

  38. My first espresso machine was one similar to this — except it had upward flow like a Moka pot, so any leftover water wound up percolating back into the boiler, and your steam was made from that sort-of-coffee water, and even in 1987 I'm pretty sure I paid more than $29. This is a clear step up from that machine.
