JDSnook: I just received my Briel ES35AB Chamonix Pump Espresso Machine With Auto Espresso Flow and had it up and running in 5 minutes (that included: rinsing the reservoir and attachments, plugging in the electrial cord, pouring the water into the reservoir and turning it on). Every part of the espresso maker is working wonderfully. The reasons for purchasing this machine was so I could have a reservoir of water and also to use the espresso pods in order to make numerous individual cups of espresso for our dinner parties. It is very easy to clean afterwards, and in just a minute or two after turning it on, just put the espresso pod in the pod holder, insert and turn, press the button, and in 20-30 seconds you have a cup of espresso. I am very satisfied with the product and would encourage others to purchase it as well.
Jeanne Boyd: I bought this machine in November 2001 based largely on the positive reviews here but since then I've noticed that most of the positive reviews of the Briel Chamonix are from customers who have only had it a few days or weeks. My machine worked great for a few weeks. It made excellent espresso and produced a lot of steam. Unfortunately, after a couple months, it started to leak. Not a few drops either. Streams of water run out of every opening and flood my countertop. Then the steamer stopped working. Today, 9 months and numerous replacement parts/repairs later, I finally gave up and bought a new one from Starbucks. I used my old Starbucks machine for 7 years before I "upgraded" to the Briel and I never had a problem with it. The construction was exceptional and the customer service unbeatable. The Briel machine is going in the trash. :-(
John H. Lester "jlester343": First of all the pump did not work. I called the help number and they walked me through a repair. I had to take the machine apart and re-attach the wire for the pump. After fixing it I made my first espresso but it came out luke warm. I have a Capresso Ultima at work which does a great job. I sent the Chamonix back and bought a second Capresso
orchid "healthiswealth": I bought this machine for my husband for Christmas, based on Amazon's customer reviews.At first, it seemed like a pretty good machine, even though it dripped badly (despite the touted "no drip" feature). It is our first pump machine, so the ability to make lots of steamed milk was a big plus, even though we didn't think the coffee came out as well as our 10-year old bottom-of-the-line Krups.However, it started malfunctioning quickly. The sliding 'knob' to control amount of coffee did not work. Sometimes only an ounce of coffee would come out, sometimes several ounces, no matter how it was set.Finally, hardly anything was coming out. I figured it was obstructed, and I started soaking the filter in vinegar overnight. This would work for a day or so, then no coffee again. We called the 800 number on the back of the machine, and they said to send it (our responsibility to pay the postage) to New York for repair.We use only filtered water in the machine, and there is no scale built up anywhere. The machine is 3 months old and looks new. IT JUST DOESN'T WORK. I will not be buying this kind of thing online anymore. It's too messy and inconvenient to deal with problems. I'm sticking with books and records.
Rick "lensman": First, to expose my bias -- I am a purist and love traditional Italian espresso, without any "Americano" bastardization. This machine brews an outstanding Italian-style espresso, with some of the best crema I've ever had either side of the Atlantic. The temperature is just right; my previous German-brand machines didn't get the water hot enough. It is delightfully simple and straightforward to use. My very first brew was spot on. The price is a true bargain.The Chamonix, however, is not perfect. I join the chorus of complaints regarding the deceiving label claiming an instructional video was enclosed. There is none. This is inexcusable. Fortunately, a video is not necessary for operation of this machine.My front panel is firmly attached.I understand there can be residual water from the factory pump tests, so I was not surprised to find it. I have also found it in other espresso machines.The overall feeling of the unit is "plasticy." Construction in some areas is on the flimsy side; the Auto Espresso Flow control knob and the metal drip tray grid especially so. I suppose any unit in this price range will be similarly constructed. I just couldn't bring myself to spend $500 on one with more metal, knowing the espresso wouldn't taste any better.The Briel AquaStop System, claiming elimination of most of the annoying dripping found in espresso units, falls far short. The Chamonix drips as much as any of the other units I've owned.The Auto Espresso Flow doesn't impress me. It's difficult to gauge just how much water is going to be delivered. This required a lot of hit and miss brewing. I don't feel it provides any real benefit. I'd rather switch off the flow of water when I say so. Fortunately, this is an option.The "turbo-jet" frother was equally unimpressive. Frothing was still on the difficult side. I've never owned an espresso machine that really made frothing easy. I note that the owner's manual mentions an optional Quick Froth Cappuccino accessory. If you intend to froth much, you might want to check the accessory out. Fortunately for me, I usually just brew straight espresso. I found the frother's nozzle to be difficult to remove for cleaning, and poorly made. But the Chamonix delivers where it counts -- in your demitasse cup!
