Before we purchased our "9090" Espresso Coffee Maker, we owned one of those classic aluminum espresso maker. The old one made great espresso, but we wanted to upgrade it to something that's stylish and is made of stainless steels. The "9090" Espresso Coffee Maker not only looks great in our kitchen, but also functional. Before we used it, I was worried that it might not work well. But to my surprise, it's so perfectly designed that it works better than the old one. We are very pleased with this product.

Not only is the design of this coffee maker great, but the coffee is too. In no time at all, you can have a perfect espresso or "American" coffee and clean the maker in a matter of seconds. I chose this product after having tried many others also because it's one of the few top stainless steel coffee makers. I liked it so much that I bought other sizes. You won't be disappointed!

The Sapper not only makes delicious espresso, but it is a joy to use and looks great as part of the kitchen.

This is a wonderful product. Near flawless in its design. I only wish I had purchased the larger 6-cup version as the 3-cup version only makes 2 cups at best.

I've used it for years. I agree with all comments above in terms of beauty and functionality; It is actually a piece of art. I regret, however, not being able to get some parts.

We chose the Alessi espresso maker to replace another made of aluminum. Stainless steel is the only way to go. Visually, the Alessi has nice clean lines. It is also easy to use, and clean. We had just one concern: capacity. After seeing the 3 cup version, we opted for the 6 cup size, which is comparable in capacity to our former espresso maker. Couldn't be happier.
