Philips Saeco Poemia Manual Espresso machine HD8327/47 Stainless Steel
Love this little machine!
I replaced a Saeco Aroma that bit the dust. This machine is more compact and works great. I like the small water reservoir even though you must fill it more often. It is easier to clean and no stale water sitting in the container.
Two small issues with design. The power switch is inconveniently in the back of the machine. The drip tray has unnecessary baffles that are difficult to clean.
The water temperature could be a little hotter but I heat the cup in the microwave to overcome this.
I have not used the steamer since I only use almond milk and it doesn't froth very well anyway. I just preheat milk it in the microwave.
All and all I am very happy with this product and it was a lot cheaper than other models. Maybe not the perfect product for high use, but I make 2 cups per day and it works great for me.

The espresso is very good, the milk foaming capability is more than adequate. An excellent product for the price.

Great cup of espresso
What a bargain. You will not get an espresso this good out of any other machine for this price. It froths the milk with ease sometimes a little to much. The only problem is the pump is a little loud.
