The layout of this maker is highly effective at forcing the pressurized water through the fresh coffee grounds and into a serving chamber which will hold the rich bodied espresso. The typical time-frame for brewing is in the region of 3 to 5 minutes, but this can also vary with the type of stovetop (gas, electric or induction)

Quality of espresso: this Primula branded espresso is cheap, but still able to crank out the finest tasting coffee. It is very fast working and the rich taste is comparable to many of the alternative machines from high-end brands like Mr. Coffee and Keurig.

However, it will benefit to work with a decent quality ground coffee to get the best possible results.

To make it easy to handle after sitting on a hot stovetop, the plastic handle is fully heat-resistant. This ensures the handle is always ready to be used to give a reliable and a firm grip.


Heat-resistant Handle: the large, plastic handle on this espresso maker is designed to be heat-resistant for all-round convenience and makes it possible to pick up the maker at any given moment.

Easy to Clean: this Primula espresso maker is very easy to clean after each use. It is advised to clean by hand washing only. This product is not a practical option for placing in the dishwasher. However, it is important to clean this pot in the right way. It is aluminum built so stains can leech into the coffee. Avoid using dish detergent or harsh soap when cleaning. Instead, simply rinse with water or use a home remedy of lemon juice and water.
