Getting great results with light roasts
Got the MaraX around 20 days ago, have loved every bit of it so far. My power cord came scuffed, so I contacted Comiso and they sent me a replacement right away.
* Takes up little space on the counter
* Easy to operate
* Is much more consistent than my old machine.
* Takes 20 minutes to heat up, so I had to buy a smart plug for it.
* HEAVY. Not a big deal, but I had to reposition it once and it was not easy.
* Has a pipe under the grouphead that flushes out water when you close the lever. That sometimes splashes hot water onto my scale if I don't place it properly
Love my new machine! Shipped very securely without any damage. Just make sure you have a friend to help you unpack it.
The Mara X is a small but mighty machine. After using an entry level Breville machine for years it is great to have consistent temperatures when pulling back-to-back shots, lots of steaming power, and a well-built, sturdy machine. Experimenting with the different temperature settings when brewing beans with roast profiles has been a lot of fun and has improved my espresso. The classic e61 group head looks great on my coffee bar.
Comiso Coffee: Like many of you, I spent countless hours reading about machines and bouncing back and forth between the options. I finally settled on the Mara X and was looking at different sites to purchase. Comiso offered the unit at the best price so they won my business. The shipping was faster than advertised and my unit arrived in perfect condition. They also provided prompt responses to my inquiries. I would not hesitate to use Comiso again for future purchases.
Lelit MaraX: The build quality is excellent and the machine looks amazing on my counter. I’ve been making 2-4 drinks a day that taste better than the local bougie coffee shops and are way more consistent. The machine exceeded my every expectation, although I did read every review and watched all the youtube videos I could on this machine and its’ competitors. Looking forward to adding some wood accent knobs in the future and maybe the flow control kit from the Bianca once I hone in my barista skills. My only regret is I didn’t buy sooner.
