Great machine, here's my notes...
 
I've had this machine now 4 months. I've had many machines before it, including the ever popular DeLonghi. This is an amazing machine, but there are a few things to know.1. All espresso machines, and even some coffee machines, need to be primed. If there is water in the tank, yet it's not pumping but making noise, chances are you just need to prime it. Turn the steam knob just like in the manual, and if it fails, try again. You only have to do this when you first get the machine, or ...

Excellent Semi-Auto Espresso Maker!
 
I did a lot of research and read a ton of reviews of different espresso machines before buying the Cuisinart EM-200. This machine works excellently, but you have to make sure that you read the instructions (or watch the included instructional DVD). Here's a couple things that will help you make sure that you brew great espresso with this machine, which is especially easy to do once you get the knack of it!:1. Make sure that you use good quality water so that you're espresso tastes...

Perfect lattes!
 
I received this espresso maker as a birthday gift. I am a hard-core coffee drinker, drink multiple cups daily and very particular about my coffee. I've used it for about two weeks and have to say, this machine makes as good or better espresso, lattes and breves than I can get at my local coffee house. It put a reasonably thick caramel-colored crema on the top of the very first cup of espresso, but after experimenting with different grinds and types of coffee (yes, I have been playing with it a l...

Good machine -- Figured out the "defect". Now works great!!
 
From reading the other reviews, it appeared that people either love this or they hate it. Those who hate it couldn't get it to pump water from the start, and returned it as defective. I reasoned that the defects had to be ironed out, so I took a chance. Plugged it in, filled it up -- didn't pump water. Took the tank off & put it back on several times; tried the steam wand; nothing.It was late at night, so I decided to return it in the morning. Meanwhile, I did more research, and...

Great so far!!
 
I read that another reviewer had trouble with her machine. Hopefully it was the exception and not the rule. It comes with a 3-year warranty, so I figure that I have reasonable protection should anything break.This is my first espresso machine and I did a lot of shopping and read a ton of reviews before deciding to buy. I was nervous about buying it because there were zero reviews at the time. However, I loved the look, liked the feature set, and believed in the Cuisinart brand. I...

Looks great, but defective pump or water line is fatal flaw
 
I bought my first home espresso machine, a baby Gaggia, more than 30 years ago. I know how to make espresso and I have made it with a series of machines we have owned, one at each of our two homes: Gaggia, Starbucks Barrista, a Swiss machine whose name I can't recall, and a Saeco Gran Crema. They generally last 5 to 7 years and (I'm assuming its used to make coffee, not as an ornament) then need replacing because machines in this price range aren't usually repairable at a cost that's worth it. ...

Wonderful Machine
 
I love this machine. I love that I can push a button and walk away. I think that what the other customer said is true about the knob. But trying only one more time just isn't giving it a chance to loosen up. I did have a tough time with the steam knob but I have been using it daily sometimes up to 3 to 4 times a day and have no more problems with the knob. I have had this machine for about a month now. I'm so glad I picked this machine just be sure to brew your coffee always before steaming...

Very good, especially for the price
 
I got this machine about a month ago, and have been making two lattés a day since then. The espresso produced by this machine is excellent - rich in flavor with a very thick and finely-textured crema. It's easy to get that with the pressurized portafilter included. I have also had good luck with the frothing attachment, though I did remove the "quick froth" attachment, or whatever that was - just using the bare steam nozzle is (for me) easier and produces better foam.I did ...

What's great about it: Easy to use. Makes great espresso out of the box. What's not so great: Frothing wand vs pitch; It's a bit difficult to get the pitch out from underneath the wand esp. when the pitcher is full I thought I'd give my out of the box experience and add down the line. This is my first machine; I got tired of paying those prices at the coffee shop and leaving my house to get that perfect latte. The all stainless steel design seems strong and looks good. I do have to hold the ma...

Excellent espresso, but weak frother
 
This unit is nicely put together, with its stainless steel finish. It definitely has a quality feel to it. I had no problem with turning the steam knob, as others have mentioned.The machine makes excellent espresso, both in semi-automatic and manual modes. Good crema, excellent taste.Where this machine fall short, though, is in steam volume. It takes a long time to froth the milk, and getting it right is very hit or miss. At first I thought there was more to the art of fr...
