dogster: Mine arrived with a piece of the front broken off and scratches all over the front. Makes me wonder if it's a piece of junk, not sure if I should look for a different machine or get a replacement. All I know if I have NO espresso right now!
Elaine Ellerton: I have had this machine for a few weeks now, and yes, it has done all the things that the bad reviews have said it would do e.g. watery espresso left in holder that slops everywhere, leak from around the seal when making a shot, etc. BUT, they have all happened because of exactly what other reviews have said...not cleaning the seal of all coffee grinds before inserting the holder, not putting it in correctly, packing the espresso to hard or adding too much. When you figure out not to do these things, which isn't hard at all, then it makes beautiful, wonderful espresso with perfect crema. The frother so far has been really good. I guess it could swing out further from the machine, but it is really powerful. The water tank is a good size and it really does look good in the kitchen. The only downside is that there is a seperate button to push after you have brewed the coffee in order to get the steam hot enough (this seperate temperature is actually a good thing), however, the button stays depressed after you push it which means that the next time you turn the machine on, it automatically goes to the 'steam' temperature unless you depress the steam button. I often forget this and burn my espresso. Other than that, I LOVE this machine.
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
