    Advantages

    The dual chamber design and pressurizing process help speed up brewing. It takes 4 to 5 minutes to enjoy a freshly served, hot cup. The espresso maker comes in an octagon shape, which gives the percolator a unique look and a modern feel. Aside from this, the model is also easy and convenient to store because it is small.
  • It can make rich and creamy espressos when properly set for a quick brew. Unlike other coffee makers, this stovetop percolator doesn't have those complicated buttons and dials but comes in a simple design with all the basic features you will need. This coffee maker is easy to clean and operate. The wide opening makes filling hassle-free.

    Disadvantages

    Perhaps the major drawback of this unit is the size and limited capacity. Although it is highly portable, it can't really make too many cups of espresso. You only get 4 2-ounce cups after a brew. The price is quite expensive given its limited features and capacity. At more than $50, you can find other espresso and coffee makers that come in more advanced features and have a better design. The overall design of the percolator is not as impressive as other units sold in the market.
