I'm loving it. The perks doesn't even count when you acknowledge the practical, beautiful, and useful this is.
And yeeees, this is my first homemade afogatto, and I loved it.
... washing the (head of the) plunger after using it to tamp the grounds (as shown in the video 'basic operation and maintenance' in the support section). What is not showing in that video or the FAQ is that there is a rubber valve in the plungers plastic head, see my picture. If that valve is not working (allowing air to pass through), the water runs straight through the chamber making usual coffee because the plunger is not able to build up pressure. The solution was to push the valve up carefully, take it out and clean/dry it before putting it back in. That should be documented in the FAQ and the valve be available as spare part (in the event that grounds are stuck in it)...
Despite that experience a wonderful product with a great design. I'd wish the capsule sleeve's piercing needles for coffee pods would be a bit more sturdy, some pods come with a thicker wall, so the needles of this cage sometimes bend, not able to pierce the pods' wall - I need to use a reamer or needle to pierce the pod manually. (My SP-200 has no piercing needle in the gasket like shown in the video but a separate capsule sleeve instead.)
Excellent product...so far! Seems well made!
The quality of shot from the Staresso is very good (even with the pre-ground espresso that I had on hand). Shots are amazing with fresh roasted and ground beans! Beautiful rich, thick creama, even with pre-ground espresso! So far, I have made 25+ shot of espresso with this machine..all shots were very drinkable! Not too bad for a portable, no electricity needed espresso maker!
I'll be making espresso next time my electricity goes out! The Staresso and a brick of espresso will be part of my "sanity" survival kit!
My only complaint: I wish the base could accommodate any size espresso cup, pulling shots directly into a cup of choice would make this device perfect! I can hold it and pump into a cup easily enough, but a base to accomplish this would be awesome!
I've used several other portable hand pump espresso machines, this one is the most consistent and produces the most flavorful shots! If you are a espresso drinker, I highly recommend this device!
With STARESSO we can make espresso and even Affogato any time we want to!
It's a portable espresso maker and it's the size of a small water bottle. It is manual so pour in hot water and the top and use the pump to create some pressure and pull the espresso shot.
The espresso does come out nice but it's dependent on what grounds you use.
The build quality of the product is pretty good and seems sturdy enough. The parts all come off so you can clean them often.
Overall, I think it's a good product if you use it for traveling or camping and want to have some espresso on the go. It needs some preparing but it gets the work done.
