Great little unit

Super easy to make great espresso. All you need is hot water and good beans (and a touch of strength). Makes it easy to tweak recipes as needed. Will be adding a second brew unit for making drinks for 2.

A.L. (Alberta, Canada)
Truly amazing

Great design, absolute pleasure to use. Really capable to make great tasting espresso even without a high end grinder. Upgrade is also available so it is also great for someone who is interested in playing around and willing to invest in making espresso as a hobby.

TWM (Ontario, Canada)

I had been stalking entry level machines for far too long before this purchase. The savings below entry level semi-auto machines, coupled with space savings, and the stellar reviews convinced me to make the purchase.

Its only been a week - but it's very intuitive, easy to clean (blow the puck out!), and makes a nice shot of espresso. I also made the upgrade to the bottomless portafilter, which made a notable difference for an affordable price. I may decide to go for the pressure gauge at a later date but haven't found it to be necessary yet.

Great entry to manual espresso

I have the picopresso too and the Neo is much more forgiving. It’s less fiddly too. For its price point and quality I think this is a good step into manual espresso.

It would be nice if it had space for a double espresso, but that would be my only criticism.

Joshua K. (British Columbia, Canada)
Great Quality Espresso

It took a little bit of practice to get a hand of it (less than five tries) but this is now the best espresso i’ve been able to make.

I’ve been able to get nice full bodied, balanced espresso with lots of sweetness!! really happy with it

MICHAEL I. (Ontario, Canada)
Almost not worth the frustration.

I've had my Neo Flair for three weeks, usually 3 espressos each morning. I am really impressed with the whole process and results...the espressos it makes are near perfect. Everything went great for about seven or eight days (two dozen shots) and it plugged, which not just stops the process, but the whole thing backs up and blows scalding water and coffee grounds all over my kitchen counter and me. The first couple of times it plugged were several days apart, I have small gauge rigid wire for cleaning orifices that works perfectly to unplug the little spout's tiny hole in the bottom. Now it has plugged the last three attempts to use it. After freaking out for a while and at the same time suffering for a coffee fix, I had to resort to getting out my French Press I thought I permanently retired three weeks ago, then I went online and ordered your kit of three spouts to keep on hand. One more chance for my Neo Flair.
