Dualit 3-in-1 Espresso Auto Coffee Machine : A hefty investment

Reviews exist to answer questions that consumers typically have in advance of making purchase decisions. The answers will vary depending on what it is that the question asks. I was particularly aware of this whilst writing this review for reasons that will (hopefully) become clearer as the review progresses. For example, if the question is “can this machine make an excellent espresso (or cappuccino) the answer is most certainly “yes it can”. There is no doubt in my mind that this can produce a very fine cup of coffee. I could end the review here and call it “job done” but i feel that, even more so than usual, this would (at best) only be partially true. Worst still, it would only be partially true. After a quick flick through the user guide that came with the coffee machine it soon became clear that the user is expected to invest a fair amount of time carrying out the required “each use” and “monthly use” maintenance routines concerning the cleaning/descaling of the machine.

Expert Reviews Summary and Rating

The Dualit Espress Auto 3-in-1 looks fanstastic with its polished metal finish, offers the option of using ground coffee or Dualit capsules, however we couldn’t get decent espresso from its ground coffee. There are cheaper and better capsule machines available.
