Customer Review

Hello everybody,

three days ago came from our Amazon portafilter espresso machine Kenwood ES 020 kMix (white, identical to Kenwood ES 024 kMix) and we are very satisfied.

+ Delivery from order within two days without defects
+ Machine visually appealing, valuable processed, small & space saving
+ Relatively small pump and device volume
+ Nearly vibration-free
+ Collecting container removable - so even larger coffee cups can be placed under
+ Good Crema
(Eg with Lavazza Rossa - which we are disappointed with this espresso as it us in spite of the typical Italian breakfast espresso blend of Robusta and Arabica beans too weak tastes)
+ Density brew group and portafilter remains fixed in position
+ 15 bar appear on the brewing unit actually arrive and 94 degrees are the right temperature
+ No separate cup warmer surface which in any case only current eating nonsense - just Preheat the cups with hot water - with an espresso machine principle is obviously not Stromsparer
+ Vapor pressure is sufficiently strong with the preparation of milk foam must be practiced
+ No or imperceptible plastic and plasticizer fumes in the Espresso
+ 1 bottle of descaler with this
+ Easy to understand user manual

- So far we have found nothing negative!
(And for this review, we have not been greased!)
- Who wants to drink the best espresso of his life, I recommend portafilter machines of ECM (eg ECM Mechanika IV) - however, costs the measly 1,600, - euros upwards and the espresso grinder will of course be also bought.

Conclusion: In the price range under 200, - Euro without doubt the best machine on the market that stands out pleasantly from the processing and the quality of the espresso cheap scrap metal which is one of suppliers such as Saeco (Philips Saeco) proffers. Alone at the Saeco equipment return rate is within the warranty period, as I know from insiders, at least. 40% (incl. Fully automatic) which already says everything. Since only have the Japanese come to show us how to build quality in the lower price segment portafilter machines - (min. 3 years) when the machine is now assuming even, regular descaling, the long-term test is then there is a 1 ++ - To be continued!

Basically portafilter machines preferred the expensive fully automatic machines are (even cheap!) Because

1. the espresso tastes much better and
2. Full machines are extremely susceptible to interference and damage

and thus provide no alltagserleichternden machines are like a dazzled advertising so beautiful but time wasters when you factored in the regular course of the repair shops and the hours of study of the maintenance program. Alone in Jura land 25% of the machine during the warranty period due to quality defects again the merchants.

Also in closed systems like Nespresso are not recommended - the espresso is indeed tasty, cool and hip, but the coffee in it is extremely overpriced mainly due to shareholders from Nestle would - here's a quote from the business press - on the web:

... Sat alone in the first half of 2010 to EUR 2.4 billion Nespresso. Where profits, the group is silent, it is estimated the return on sales is 80 percent. ... The concept: inexpensive coffee machines fit into the exclusively Nespresso capsules. At 35 cents per capsule that results in a price of around 70 euros per kilo of coffee, and Nespresso sold directly to end users and thus excludes the classic retail. ...
