Features Swan Coffee Machine
Swan is a British firm via and through with every item they produce is designed and actually conceived in the UK, so if you are similar to British product, then this could well be a powerful candidate.
This is the only express machine that Swan do, and they have picked to go with the old style retro look with the force gauge in the centre of the section where you control the operation of the machine.
This is an amazing affordable espresso machine which almost defies logic with its price, so you are not going to get top-end design specs or parts, but for the price, this is a quite best-looking machine.
The machine itself is extremely light at just over 3.58 kg advising the internal parts are potential of a lower standard than the norm, but at a price, we would not guess anything else.
This is a very easy to operate espresso machine with just two keys other than the ON/OFF button to control every item you need to perform to make an espresso.
Whilst the machine is preheating, you can press the key with a cup on it to get some warm water flowing via the machine and portafilter into a cup.
This does many things. It heats the cup, which is forever advisable as you do not want warm coffee going into a chill cup because it affects the taste and cools down the coffee.

Secondly, you will heat the filter which the coffee is going in, so that is not chill either.
