1003380 Accademia Espresso Machine Reviews
The reviews of the 1003380 Accademia Espresso Machine are overwhelmingly positive. Most of the positive reviews focus on the excellent coffee this machine can produce time and time again. It is easy to use and requires very little user ability or intervention.
The negative reviews seem to come from the fact that the drip tray is small and needs to be emptied on a regular basis. Another common complaint is the temperature at which the beverage is delivered and its ability to steam and heat milk. This is a complaint that is easily solved. The Accademia Espresso machine is set for medium heat when shipped. Simply adjust the settings to high and this will probably solve the problem.
