Simple, robust and good looking machine that makes really good coffee.
Positive Product Points
Small, robust, easy to use, good looks and good value for money. Large top and tray. The "super crema" filter.
Negative Product Points
The fact that you need to push the steamer button while producing steam. The top of the machine is perhaps not sufficiently warm to heat the cups. The short steam tube.
For a beginner, as me, this machine works fine. I didn't take me long before I was able to produce a good cup of coffee. I have tried other machines such as Saeco Aroma and LaPavoni Eurobar and, honestly, there is no difference in my opinion. The quality feel is just as high and sometimes better. Demoka seems to have spent resources on quality instead of fancy features. So, the value for money is certainly high! The only downside would be service. There are probably not may places for that outside Spain. The "super crema" filter seems to work. This filter is there to provide crema although the coffee is not ground for an espresso machine. I tried it and it works quite well. If you use espresso coffee, the filter is not needed.
I bought my machine in Spain. When I got back I found that the manual was only in Spanish !!! I contacted Demoka by email and an hour later I had a manual in English in the fax. That's good service!
