The Cuisinox Roma 6-Cup Stovetop Espresso Maker is a high-end edition of the brewing system and solid built in 18/10 stainless steel.
Performance: this Cuisinox coffee maker is fast and efficient at brewing a very decent cup of coffee. The actual time to brew is in the region of 3 to 4 minutes (based on a medium-high heat setting). For ease in knowing when the espresso is ready, the pot will emit a steaming sound to indicate the coffee has risen into the reservoir.
Quality of espresso: the espresso brewed in this pot tastes mighty good. It is built in all stainless steel which helps to deliver the better espresso brew compared to the alternative pots in aluminum. Also, a high-quality ground coffee is necessary to create the most desirable and authentic taste.
Beyond the quality of the ground coffee, the water poured into the pot can have an influence on the all-round flavor. The best results are achieved when filtered water is used.
Design: this Cuisinox branded espresso maker is a premium grade option with the price to match. It is built with the finest materials with a body in heavy-duty 18/10 stainless steel that is finished with an attractive mirror-like finish. Also, it has an induction base which means it is practical to use on all stovetop surfaces (gas, electric and induction)
In addition to the 6-cup edition of this espresso maker, there is also the option to buy a 4-cup (great for one person) or 10-cup (for multiple family members) which makes it a viable option for the every size family.
Well-built: the Cuisinox Roma is entirely built in stainless steel, unlike many of the alternatives that have an aluminum core.
Reducer: the reducer is a useful piece of kit for those looking to make less coffee. Simply placing the reducer inside the pot helps to cut the capacity for accepting espresso coffee grounds.
Easy to Clean: this Cuisinox Stovetop Espresso Maker is very easy to keep clean to ensure it continues to produce the delightful coffee, as well as retaining its mirror-like finish. The preferred cleaning method is hand washing.
