La Cafetière La Cafetiere Classic Espresso Coffee Maker Percolator : Great but leaks

Got this yesterday, kept it in the box for a few hours, i don’t know why. My girlfriend (greek) absolutely loves it, she literally cannot stop playing with it, she’s called it big red rob and won’t stop talking about how all other coffee around the world, made in the other coffee makers (red or otherwise) tastes like burnt water compared to the brown honey that comes out of big red rob.

Great, quick delivery and tidy little machine.

(strictly speaking this is a moka pot. A cafetiere is a french press style coffee maker. )a classic design that makes coffee effortlessly and quickly. The 6 espresso cup size is ideal for making one very large cup of strong coffee.

Makes beautiful espresso i’ve never used one before, i decided to use this one. I followed instructions and cleaned it out before first use, i also find out if you use filtered water if you live in a hard water district it improves the taste of the coffee. Giving it a rich creamy almost chocolatey taste, very easy to clean just remember to let it cool before you do so.

Good quality product, doesn’t leak or feel shoddy. Makes a good volume of coffee, the 6 ‘espresso cups’ equates to about 2 regular sized mugs worth of coffee. Easy to clean, and assuming you put it on the small ring on the hob, the handle doesn’t get hot at all.

Good quality for the cost and makes a good cup of coffee. Only wish i’d orders larger size as only really get 1 1/2 cups out of it.

A bit more expensive than others, but we already knew it was really good quality (we have a bigger version already).

Bit smaller than expected but it looks good in the kitchen.

  • Makes a lovely cup
  • Makes excellent coffee, quickly.
  • Simple to use and effective.

Looks quality just sitting there 👍🏼.

Before buying this i saw that there were a few reviews that this leaked but i found this happens to me very rarely. It works perfectly and for great value. It also looks exactly as the picture does and i highly recommend.

Coffee leaks from side due to not enough threads on base,also because of leaks the steam from the leak burns my hand.

Used it for a few months now, works normally, the handle is sturdier than the last model that i’ve ruined. The plastic handle on cheaper ones will melt when you forget & leave it too long on the stove, but this one seem to be more hardy. Used it for espresso and also japanese green tea ( fill it up to 1/3 or half as leaves tend to expand), tea made with this pot is wonderful, as the water is distilled, better than kettle boiled water. Suitable for 1 cup of tea, i usually refill & reuse the leaves for second cup. Would recommend this product.

Bought as a pressie for my bro and he loves it.

Can’t comment on durability as so far only used over christmas.

Great product and i use it everyday.

Makes great coffee but no matter how tight i tighten it it leaks.

  • Makes a lovely cup
  • Makes excellent coffee, quickly.

La Cafetiere Classic Espresso Coffee Maker Percolator, 9-Cup – Steel

Does just what it says it will do.

Arrived quickly, great little cafeteria but does dribble when pouring.

Lovely looking cafetière and easy to use, makes lovely coffee. However, mine is seriously leaky when pouring. The only way i can get it to not dribble is to lift the lid as i pour which is tricky and annoying.

Was a gift and they like it. Will update if i buy o e for my self.

This product is smart, easy to clean and use and looks fabulous on my cooker.

Works very well, it did leak a little the first few times i boiled water through it (as stated on the instructions) but it stopped after the third time. One thing i’d note is that the coffee boiling noise is very quiet, with other coffee makers i could hear when the water / coffee started boiling and would take it off the heat immediately but the noise is much quieter with this one. All in all, very happy with the product.

This is my second la cafetiere coffee maker – i’ve got nothing negative to say about this moka pot. Easy to use, very nice colour, very well made, fantastic price.

I highly recommend this product to everybody.

I purchased a 3 cup version of this coffee pot to replace my small cafetiere that broke. First impressions were that it seemed reasonably substantial, but closer examination revealed a lot of flaws. The pressure valve on the side is not spring loaded, an addition to the later generation of italian manufactured pots that allows for easy removal of limescale in hard water areas. Secondly, the overall finish in the bottom water holder is quite rough, with unfinished edges on the interior base and the coffee filter. While not quite sharp enough to cut yourself on, that, and combined with a loose flake of paint on the side showed a lack of quality control during manufacture. Finally, the size and capacity. Even the smallest ring of my gas cooker was too large for this pot, and i have had to use my cast-iron frying pan as a heat diffuser. As to 3 cups of coffee, i could only get under half a mug, about 2. That said, the coffee tasted fine, but you will not get any creme or coffee foam using this pot.

Leaks a little when bubbling up but my italian friends say it’s normal. Also spills a little when pouring out the coffee. Otherwise i love the colour which matches my kitchen decor.

Elegant coffee maker and does the job.

. But the paint is already coming off a little.

Use it most days with great results.

Great colour and pours well :-).

Love it, makes a very nice stove top brew.

Husband loves his coffee every morning worth the money.

Ok but could have a tighter seal. My previous makers, also aluminium but much cheaper, had all the seal so well fixed that there was no need to take it off ever time i washed the maker.
