Review: Milesto Coffee Machine

Review: Milesto Coffee Machine, does China origin espresso machine works?

Milesto EM19M2

1. The Story

December 2020, after a few months of MCO (Movement Control Order in Malaysia), I decided to buy myself a proper machine.

4 months later

I went on to compare between brands, brand new versus second hand.

I locked down on the Breville BES870. It comes with an built-in grinder, the steamer looks solid and powerful.

As I decided to withdraw money and go for Breville at Harvey Norman, I saw a Facebook post and the plan was bring to a halt.

Someone decided to sell off this breville machine at half of its price. I PM the seller immediately and he said someone else already booked it.

As a passionate coffee lover, he started to share with me why he planning on selling it, and the replacement he’s going to get. He recommend me to check out the China Brand, Milesto, which he will place order once he got the RM1800.

By the look of it, this china coffee machine is square and not stylish enough.

Brevillle BES870 is single boiler machine, with only RM1,700, Milesto is selling dual boiler, which equivalent Breville is selling at RM5,000.00 at the time. Dual boiler doesn’t need a hard time waiting for the steamer to get ready. He was also unsatisfied with the built-in grinder, which was a conical grinder at the time.

I decided to buy Milesto due to its review and affordable price range. RM1,699 for the dual-boiler, and another RM399 for the grinder. Also RM25 for a bag of coffee beans.

I chose the more affordable dual boiler, which is suitable for household use. EM20 can work at cafes and bar, a more industrial version.

5. Easy to use

I used to work in cafes. The machine is slightly from where I used to work (Starbucks), where everything was calibrated to standard.

With my experience, my first shot with Milesto is already a passable one. It’s a no brainer job.

Honestly, it works well beyond my expectation. As a beginner, I can make something both look and taste decent.

5. Repair and fixing

I noticed the timer is not functioning normally. Even though they responded well, but I was lazy to go and get it replace.

6. Caffeine withdrawal & symptoms

When I go on with my day without coffee, I will have noticeable tension headache. It won’t go away until I have a coffee fix.

The headache will hit around 2-3pm, it will be intense and make me

  • unable to focus
  • sleepy
  • yawns
  • teary eyes
  • tension headache that won’t go away
  • but if I stay without coffee 2-3 days, the symptoms will go away itself
