    New to Coffee Machines - Help!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Does the Sumbeam EM8910 make multiple cups of coffee one time without having to wait for a coold down or re heat period?

    Welcome, :)

    "yes" to your question until it needs to go back to Sunbeam for warrantee service work *;D

    Have a good look around here for some other users thoughts about them and make sure it is what you want or are expecting. At the end of the day they are a home appliance and will do the job well for a while until they break IMO.

    Even with its longevity issues the machine still represents the best value in its price bracket for features but machine like the Nemox or Silvia are much better in the durability front but both suffer from the need to be cooled down after steaming milk.

    From here for making multiple coffees on the trot you need to look at HX or Heat Exchanger machines and they start at around $1300 and up.

    Must admit after all of the requests for help we see from Sunbeam owners re faults, wear, and servicing I wouldnt take one as a gift. ;)

    Yes it does and quite well to boot.

    Ive had mine for about 15 months now without a problem and am very happy. I do however clean it very regularly.

    Why = Confirmation of said unit. Many people get confused and often talk about a totally different machine..

    Do I like the Auto Grind / Dose / Tamp / Shot unit... NO... Regardless of quality; the mass produced white goods marketing people have pulled a swiftly over many...

    Perception of ease of use etc just leads to problems and poor cup quality...

    You have to understand his background.

    Its terminology used in certain occupations.
    In other words, its part of his vocabulary; you might as well ask an Italian to stop speaking Italian. ;)

    Just like an Italian.. *Some times machines do like to rest a bit between shots or a number of shots in a row. *

    I suggest you follow up with the Manufacturer.

    People who have problems with new machines regardless of make should have a read through this http://www.accc.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/8818 *;)
    Yes... But they also need to then cross reference their local laws and state requirements.. Then read between the weasel words ( not weasel coffee) and then decide what actions and what the outcome might be..

    • are of merchantable quality—that is, they are a basic level of quality given the price and any description that is provided with the goods

      are fit for the purpose or job that the consumer described to you or that are self-evident

      match any description or sample given to the consumer whether in promotional material, over the phone, in person, on a website or on labelling or packaging

      must be free from defects and faults.


    Opps call a Contract lawyer...

    Opps... Why bother :-) Unless ya get physically hurt / electrocuted and thus the returns will compensate for teh costs - IF ya WIN.

    Ive thrown away my percolator, and now use the 6910 exclusively when we have many over. Ive made up to a dozen coffees in a row (two at a time) - and routinely 8 or so when the immediate family are around. It seems to handle this quite well, and its become more of a "how long am I prepared to stand here and make coffees" thing, more than me wondering how long the Sunbeam can keep it up.

    I think the short answer is yes.
