Negative Product Points

Coffee has a little metal tint, still nowhere near as good as a pump machine, but what can you expect for 13 bucks?

Detailed Commentary

So im an americano freak.  I got this for my birthday and have used it a total of 5 times.  First two times i used some crappy coffee (Medaglia D'oro) and the last three i've used good stuff.  To make an americano with this, as opposed to a regular espresso machine you do 1/2 water 1/2 moka pot coffee, instead of a double shot and water.  

When i had my most recent americano, I noticed a bad tasting metal tint to the coffee, probably just because i haven't used it enough.  But truth be told, it still makes a good cup.  If you can't afford a pump machine, skip the steamer machine, and buy this, it works better and makes better tasting (less bitter) coffee.

Buying Experience

Gift, but the coffee shop they bought it from always has a good buying experience
