    If that full cup of pale foamy stuff was coffee crema then save your money and spend it on something better.

    Welcome BTW :)

    Interestingly in a bad way, it has a screw in blade grinder, there is just no way that will produce decent Espresso *:o

    At a minimum buy a Sunbean 450 or 480 gtinder and then spend any budget left on the machine *8-)

    Re: Hyco Coffee Machine ---

    Where did the first post and video link go???

    I can only guess that the original poster removed their post as they were trying to pimp their rubbish here and got caught.

    After I bit of searching I found the video in question:

    [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTsqH5DE3-8[/media]

    Now the machine might be able to produce better coffee than shown in the video but if the seller thought the video was good then ya better watch out for their other items! :o

    I just noticed that the machine in the video and the picture on the box are different orientations.

    Do they make a left hand and right hand version???

    Yes, you can toss it in the bin with either hand.

    As always, buy the best machine you can in the price bracket that suits and learn how to get the best out of it with fresh coffee and good technique.
    I reckon we might need you to do another review Andy! ;D

    ...although Im sure that most CoffeeSnobs could have made a better shot than that nasty pour in the video using the same gear.
