Conclusion

The Capresso Café is underpowered, poorly designed and confusing to use. But it is not unusual in that: most cheap espresso makers have similar problems, as espresso is a difficult drink to make, and requires expensive engineering. This one did an adequate job of producing espresso, but steaming. the milk seemed to be more difficult for it, with the foam helper producing large bubbled foam that broke down quickly. Overall, this was a rather disappointing espresso maker, and most users would be better off saving up for a more expensive, but better performing machine.
