I love my coffee machine
I absolutely love my coffee machine I use it multiple times a day works perfectly and very fast extremely good value for money and affordable I recommend this product highly
Purchased in July 2019 at Bigw for $200.00.
I was happy with this machine up to a point. It made nice coffee, frothed milk well and seemed like good value. However, every so often it decided to purge the contents of the water reservoir all over the bench (and floor). This became increasingly prevalent and impossible to fix. Still, I put up with this "quirk" until after owning it for 13 months it decided not to work at all. All 3 lights would illuminate but pressing them for any length of time did absolutely nothing. Unable to fix and out of warranty it was chucked in the bin. Maybe Sunbeam have now initiated 'built in obsolescence' in their manufacturing process. What they don't understand is I'm now put off the brand for life.
Great easy morning cappuccino at home
We purchased this for my soldier son returning from operation. We decided to unpack it and try it in case it didn’t work well. Wow. I said to my husband it’s really good. Let’s keep it. We used it in our van everyday. We now have one at home. The froff isn’t as tight and creamy as your up market cafe but better than instant. If you don’t want to spend $1000 on a better coffee machine, and you don’t want a pod option then this is the best machine. We got our money back from it after 3 weeks

There are better options out there.
I must admit, I was never in love with this machine. I found that it wasted coffee i.e. the final brew was about a quarter of what I would get out of my stove top peculator using the same amount of coffee. I did like how it frothed milk (on the custom setting) and for that reason I decided to keep the machine. As fate would have it, the machine completely failed a month after I bought it. When I returned it back to Myer, the salesperson told me that they have seen nothing but issues with this model machine.
If you were to buy this machine, d...o not pay the full RRP. It just isn’t worth it. There are a tonne of other options that a far better quality for significantly less. Also, buy it from a reputable store that won’t give you grief if you need to return it because in all likelihood, you probably will need to.
After 6 months still going string
Purchased this machine about 6 months ago. Picked it up for $170 while researching what $1000+ machine to get. I don't think I will be importing an Italian machine. For the money I'm pulling great coffee out of this, it's super easy to use and convenient milk container is a plus. Easy to clean. It is a mass produced machine so if you get a filth one just replace it. I was a coffee machine tech and trust me the $7000 machines have way more faults. So for the money if it last me a year I'm stoked anything after that is just the cream on the top lol, happy brewing

Faulty - broke before we had a single cup of coffee
It turned out the machine was faulty when we first set it up. The water does not flow from the reservoir, so need to bring it back on day 1
Easy to use, simple coffee machine
I didn't want to spend a small fortune on getting a decent coffee to drink at home. This is compact, and very easy to use, and easy to clean.
I had read several bad reviews, but after owning one, I have 0 issues with anything.
12month replacement guarantee seemed good to me too. Honestly, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because when it starts frothing the milk, it scares the s**t out of everyone in the kitchen...it's pretty loud lol.
Purchased for $150.00.
Coffee lover .
This machine is brilliant the coffee it produces is hot ,flavoursome and easy to make . Cleaning is a breeze and it looks terrific on our bench . Once it was set up it took no time to learn how to make great cups of coffee . Highly recommended .

Great budget auto coffee machine
Bought this coffee machine about 9 months ago. It is a solid product and never miss a bit. The coffee quality is very closed to the medium to high level machines. At least, it woke me up every morning by providing me instant but good quality coffee. I like it so much. Recommend this machine for your routine lives.
So disappointed with this coffee machine. I bought it 2 years ago and the porta filter holder was missing a screw in the middle and when we called up within the first month they told us that they do not do spare parts for this machine and that we would have to return the WHOLE machine ( meaning we would not have a machine for a month or so). 2 years on.. and still dissappointed with the product. The milk frother does not work well at all, foam is too thick even on lower setting, and the coffee ALWAYS tastes bitter, no matter what coffee we try. I wish we could change this machine for a NON automatic milk frothing machine.
Disappointed with temp of water
Purchased this machine 3 weeks ago from Amazon and I must say it's a great machine however the temperature of water is disappointing. Is there any other type of step I can follow to make the water temp much hotter rather than warm?
Love this little machine
I purchased this machine October last year from Big W and I absolutely love it.
Makes great tasting coffee and it’s so easy to use and wash.
The only thing that has started to happen recently is that the milk overflows every time in both the latte and cappuccino mode which means I have to stand there to stop it and do the shots separately.
i bought 4 months ago worked fine then i noticed i couldnt get it to pump water i pushed the water tank down hard and it started this would happen every time i removed the water tank TODAY descaled i got half way threw flush and the pump stopped working
Frothing is below standard.
After we used a few similar machines, my wife noticed this online more than 3 years ago, and decided to give it a go. We also watched the YouTube promotion video and was impressed with the ease of use when compared to manual frothing type. Sadly our skill have grown to frothing the milk quite well with the manual type, and hence this automatic one is honestly, really poor. The frothed milk is not fine enough despite turning the selection to give finest frothing. Also, cleaning the frothing part is troublesome when one has to dissemble all for t...horough cleaning, as compared to the simple purging for the manual type. On the good side, it lasts longer than the usual manual types. So we will probably be waiting a bit longer for it to break down as the excuse to buy a new one that frothe better.
Great Machine and Value, Coffee taste a little burnt
easy to use and value for money.
feels half decent and seems to froth well.
easy to clean as well
Unsure if it's me but coffee always tastes a little burnt or bitter
Purchased in May 2019 for $199.00.
Great for at home mums
Being a former barista and working in the office I was finding I needed a coffee fix before work
Sunbeam make good appliances - it’s light weight and easy to clean
I do worry that some of the parts when being cleaned could be lost down the sink if you’ve got an old fashioned farm house like myself...
The coffee itself has a nice extraction but be warned the milk comes out so frothy even on the less frothy setting and is burn your mouth hot - which is fine if you’re one of those people who like burnt coffee taste anything over 65 degrees changes the flavour of coffee actually burns the coffee shot so unfortunately I’m selling mine

Excellent product! Easy to use
Purchased this product online. The product doesn't take too much space, it's easy to use and I have been using it over the last few months and its pretty amazing for the price I paid for it. No complaints.
Purchased in April 2017 for $195.00.
Good machine, really disappointed with milk frother
Update: Thanks to Sunbeams excellent and fast response to my reviews I returned this machine and got the Mini Batista instead at a fantastic price and so far I'm absolutely loving it, definitely need to practice my milk frothing skills but that just means more coffee drinking.
EDIT: I've persevered with trying to use the milk frother of this machine, if you like lattes definitely avoid this particular model, the milk comes out watery, way too much froth even on the lowest froth setting, I've given up now and I'm using Nespressos milk frother.
...I have had this machine for a few days now after using a pod machine for years. I still need to perfect the grind. The machine is easy to operate but I'm already regretting not getting one with a manual milk frother because I'm just not satisfied with the way the milk turns out and I'd like more control over it, doesn't matter where I turn the knob to it doesn't make much difference. Feeling a bit disappointed but it's not the machines fault as it does what it says.

Milk dispenser doesn't work. Will return tomorrow.
Bought a week ago and arrived today. Went through all steps carefully for setup. Milk doesn't dispense at all. No foam nothing. Just steam. Not sure I want a replacement maybe I'll go for a different model. Very disappointed after spending $299.
Purchased in March 2019 for $299.00.
