Hints & Tips


The types of coffee machines

Manual: For people who like control over their coffee-making, the coffee grounds are loaded by hand into a cup-shaped filter. Capsule: Easy to use and mess-free, simply insert the sealed capsule (""pod"") of pre-ground, pre-measured coffee. Automatic/Semi-automatic: Decide what you want your coffee machine to do for you. Some models perform tasks at the push of a button, including cleaning the machine. They also offer a range of pre-sets for one, two or three shots of espresso at the push of a button.

Grinding the coffee beans

Some coffee machines have a built-in coffee bean grinder, which can be adjusted for coarse, medium, fine or extra-fine granules. Coffee grinders come in three types: Wheel burr grinders: The beans are crushed between two wheels, one spinning very fast and the other stationary. These can be noisy. Conical burr grinders: A metal cone at the base rotates against another surface at the top. These spin more slowly, tend to clog less and are quieter. Blade grinders: Beans are sliced finely using a blade. These may grind beans unevenly and leave coffee with a slight burnt taste if ground too long. If the espresso maker doesn't have an in-built coffee grinder, you'll need to buy a standalone one or use pre-ground coffee instead.

What is a thermoblock?

This is the internal component of a coffee maker that heats water to the optimum temperature range for making coffee (between 85°C and 96°C). For good flavour it's important that you don't scald the coffee. Machines with twin thermoblocks make coffee quicker because they heat the water for the coffee and create steam for frothing the milk at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for price. No negative points to say about any of the functions involved in the process of making the desired outcome ie. a fresh cup of coffee!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sunbeam leaker Bought new one to replace three year old one. Very dissapointed with new one which leaked all over the bench and into cupboards. Ive returned it for a new one. Wake up sunbeam. Seems every fifth machine is a leaker with any sunbeam model. Its time you all woke up and stop us wasting time and money. Ill chane other good reviews to reflect what others are saying and I will also alert dept of fair trade to the faulty machines. Is quality assurance so hard to ask for. Tell Chinese makers to check their work. Fed up with returning faulty goods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great entry level espresso machine, so easy to use I've had capsule machine in the past and thought I'd give manual coffee a go. This is a great price point, no risk! We bought ground coffee to use, the first coffee I poured was perfect! So easy to dose the handle - the dose device can also be used to tamp the coffee. The steam wand is easy to use as well. You can't do both coffee extraction and steaming milk at the same time, but with the price I wouldn't expect this. It's a small unit too which suits my small kitchen!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Within 4 days the power button stoped working I have owned 2 Sunbeam Coffee machines over the last 6 years and loved them. This time we purchased the cheaper version (this model) due to rating. The frothing is better than the other model. This body has more more plastic and the handle is plastic too. Main complaint - I've been using this machine for 4 days and already the power button is failing! After 12 presses, it turns on. This is not what I expect from a Sunbeam product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New coffee espresso drinker I recently purchased this product for my daughter. Oh and myself I think,, as Coles is no longer selling our favourite coffee CARTE NOIRE,, not bad so far as I'm learning to use it, and learning about espresso ☕ not bad so far

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked well short term! My first Sunbeam Cafe Expresso 11 worked well for 8 -10 weeks, 1 coffee every morning, ocassional 1 for a visitor. Then a problem started - as soon as l heated it & switched it to filter my coffee it leaked hot water out every where, empied the tank as l was using machine. To keep using the machine each morning l only put in a fresh cup of water into tank.. while l was trying to find my purchase receipt. Until it was completely unusable... . .water started leaking, splurting out everywhere around filter. So packed it up, in the box that l had kept.Took it back, was grateful to have machine replaced. Set it up ready to use this morning..BUT to my disappointment, after heating up it refused to pump the water through! Only the Steamer/ frother worked! Another trip back to store..an hours drive again. Thanks Mr Sunbeam!! Would NOT recomend this machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for price Paid $100 for this little machine. It's paid for itself already on what we would have spent on morning cuppas. Not as good as big machine in cafes. Plus we need a grinder. Already grinded coffee goes off.
