Q & As

La Cupola, Espresso Coffee Maker, 6 Cup 3 5 2 2
Style over function This looks great on the kitchen work top, until you come to use it. It leaks so badly that it puts the flame out on the gas ring! The base is also smaller than the top, not sure why. On my other coffee makers they are the same size. It just makes two mugs of coffee (with milk added) or 6 espresso size cups. I found it fiddly to put the ground coffee in the filter, it is smaller because of the way the top screws on. No rubber seal on this. The handle stays cool and it pours without spilling. You should be aware that it will only safely sit on a small gas ring. Probably better and safer on an electric (not induction) hob. I can't comment on the conductivity because by the time I'd reignited the gas ring a few times it took a lot longer to make the coffee than my other coffee maker. I now have the joy of cleaning up the mess! And this will be going back. 21 April 2014
