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.
Garbage. Pure garbage.
As they say, when it seems to good to be true, it usually is:
- Milk comes out luke warm if you’re lucky
- froth controller has no impact on how frothy the milk is
- milk frother draws in so much hot water that it spits out very watery milk.
- the button to control one shot verses two shot of coffee is laughable. It’s basically a game of Russian roulette. You might get 5ml, you might get 25ml. It doesn’t matter which option you select!
- the coffee might come out with cream on top. MIGHT!
All round; this does not do what it says and does not deserve a good review from anyone.

Excellent little coffee machine
Makes great coffee - espresso, latte, cappuccino. Automatic coffee machine with a milk container. Quick and efficient, we are very happy with the purchase as our old coffee machine broken.
Coffee just tastes exactly as from the coffee shop, instructions on how to use are very clear as well. Also an affordable type of a decent coffee machine, we bought on Promo so it had $50 off, the current price is $200
Worth of your penny
I am satisfied with the taste of the coffee. The quality of coffee produced is always consistent. The temperature of coffee is pretty right for me, not too hot and not cold. It suits my taste. One thing I could comment is the warranty of this product. I am looking forward for few years using this machine.
once you get to know this machine it is pretty good
the offee tastes good like other espresso machines that I have had, I found that I heated up my cup first letting just hot water in for 10 seconds, then put the filter in and voila, 24 december however I encountred a slight glitch and that because the weather was hot thewater container stayed pretty hot and did not let the milk froth so i tried something and that was put it in the freezer for around 4 minutes, then started to make some froth first and it worked welll
Thought we would replace our pod machine in the office. Only two of us who use it. I have a very expensive machine at home, and I understand the compromise for the price, but this is just not a great machine. No matter what grind of coffee I try, it is bitter and extracts very little coffee, not even 10secs worth. Tried to extract a longer coffee (as I enjoy a long black) by pressing the manual button, doesn't work. There is only one tiny hole for the coffee to escape through the coffee filter, and leaves a very watery mess with coffee in the f...ilter. Just not impressed at all. The material that the porter filter and cup filter is made from is really quite inferior I think. When pulling the cup filter off the porter filter to clean it, there is an awful smell of ?metal or something most unpleasant. My colleague feels the same about this machine and is not happy with the taste of coffee either.

Excellent and affordable
The machine produces great quality coffee and it's quite simple to use.
It's also easy to clean up and does not take much space.
If there is one problem with the machine is that sometimes it releases so much froth even on the lowest setting.
Would still recommend as it's a great way to save money in the long term.
I am satisfied wth the second one .I had to return my first one as it leaked water and the steam didn't work very well.When I returned it I had no trouble JB exchanged it for a new one.They were very professional.The second is great.works like a charm .Easy to use and clean.I save a lot of money now as I don't buy take away coffee any more.
Bought today. Will be returning for a refund tomorrow
I was so excited to buy this machine and try it out today.
I made 2 cups of coffee. Both tasted really awful but I thought I needed to work out the strength due to trial and error.
I then unplugged the unit. I went back to it a couple of hours later and it was sitting in a pool of water on my benchtop. Maybe I had split some.
I dried the mess and returned a while later. More water. This time I lifted the unit and water was coming from the base of the unit. The drip tray was dry. But it was dripping from the unit itself. The water reservoir was in correctly and was not overfull.
I will be returning it for a refund tomorrow

Questions & Answers
Brand new machine not working at all. Follow all the instruction from the manual. But no water came out during the priming. I have removed the red plug before the priming.
Please return the unit to your retailer for a replacement - the unit should work perfectly after following the setup steps in the manual.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
How do i get a strong latte. I've tried a couple of different brands, pre-ground and beans that i have ground myself but it still comes out very weak. Or am I doing something wrong?
We have plenty of videos and tips on how to make a great coffee on our Simply Great Coffee web page: https://www.sunbeam.com.au/coffeehub/
Have a look and if your coffee is weak, message me back and we'll see what else it could be.
Brand new coffee machine doesn't seem to be working at all, have followed all the instructions in the booklet on how to set up but it doesnt seem to be pulling the water from the reservoir (yes I have removed the plug) and the lights wont stop flashing on the front
It sounds like you have done everything right, the lights are supposed to flash like that each time you turn it on until it is ready and the water is at the correct temperature. Then the flashing lights stop and now it is ready for you to start. Can I ask if you have given the machine time to heat and stop flashing?
A full tank usually takes a minute to heat up and for the lights to stop flashing. If it's much more than that please take it back to your retailer for a replacement.
