Review: Lello Ariete 45900 Prestigio Espresso Machine Arrives for Review
We are pretty happy to say that we have our Lello Ariete 45900 Prestigio Espresso Machine in for review. The unit is a stainless steel espresso machine that comes with the nice features that you come to expect in espresso machines: 15 bar Thermoblock pump, a large 64+ ounce water reservoir, a 950 watt heater, and a cup warmer. The 950 watt heater is a bit smaller than we have seen on some espresso makers (Usually in the 1100+ watt range), so I am going to be checking out heating times on this as we go through the normal testing process. If it's not too long, this might just rock the espresso maker world with a new value play: Stainless Steel exterior, classically designed, pump driven espresso machine for around $100 after a discount at Amazon.
Remember, Amazon almost always runs a deal for a $25 discount when you spend more than $125 at Kitchen and Housewares. I previously talked about the order backlog on these from Amazon, but things appear to have finally opened up and they appear to be shipping them on demand.
The plan is to use some Starbucks ESE Espresso Pods .
