I would have this machine on my counter just for its looks and that is the reason I originally bought it. Voluptuous is the word to describe its appearance, nothing chromey, stainless steel, angular, looking like it was designed by an oil refinery engineer; just plain and simple. My machine was faultless until the end making at least five coffees a day (sometimes thirty) for five and a half years - that's thousands of coffees. I was going to get it repaired but someone was disposing theirs for next to nothing so I got it instead. It is now a year old, suffering the same treatment and holding up just as well. If you love the hands on experience of making coffee, this is the machine for you. In using it, you will learn the art of espresso, something lost on those automatic machines. I want a coffee the way I like it, not as determined by a barista or a program. The Kitchenaid machine allows me to do it as I want while looking good at the same time. I will be disappointed when my current machine dies and there is no replacement. It will still sit on my bench for its good looks though.

We got this coffee maker for Christmas and were excited for our first coffee. Unfortunately we were very disappointed, tried three different coffee brands, ground the coffee using the Kitchen aid grinder, tried several tamping pressures and we did not get a very good coffee. There's no coffee foam, no thick texture. Keep wondering whether we do something wrong as with this beautiful "beast" of a coffee maker, one would think the coffee that comes out should be much better. What we get tastes more like a french press. I guess if we had bought another Krupps coffee maker, we would have enjoyed the coffee better and would have saved quite a bit of money. Agree with other reviewers here that the coffee maker itself is a beautiful machine, just a joy to look at, unfortunately the coffee is not worth it, so far... Sorry to say. If anybody has got any good tips or ideas what we might be overlooking, please share, I'll be grateful, thank you.

Beautiful Design

By 

from Memphis, TN

Comments about KitchenAid Empire Red Pro Line Series Espresso Maker With Dual Independent Boilers:

I purchased this model when Kitchenaid first released it with their Pro-Line series about 12-14 years ago. The first one I received developed a problem (I can't recall what it was) and Kitchenaid replaced it with no questions asked. As to the reviews written about saying it didn't produce or consistently good crema, I would argue that had more to do with the freshness of the beans and less to do with the machine. The pump is more than adequate for espresso and the boilers (2) are large and heat up very quickly. Once I figured out the grind for the beans I was using (I occasionally roast my own, but mainly purchase whole-bean) I consistently would pull shots with a full head of crema that were exquisite in flavor. Its a little bit of trial and error initially whenever switching to a new bean/roast. With that being said, this machine has produced amazing shots with little-to-no crema, which has led me believe that the presence or absence of crema is not a good indicator.

This is a semi-automatic machine with its internals made by Gaggia (or they used to be), the inventor of espresso. I would highly recommend it and I'm glad to see Kitchenaid has reintroduced this in their product line.

The Best

By 

from Boise Idaho

Comments about KitchenAid Empire Red Pro Line Series Espresso Maker With Dual Independent Boilers:

So we bought one when they first came out several years ago (aprox.10+ yrs) and it still runs great every morning of everyday. I have had to replace on small part in 10+ yrs and that's it. We are so glad they have come out with them again and will be purchasing another one before this one we have ever gives out. I hope they are still made by the same Co. and marketed by Kitchenaide....AWESOME MACHINE!!!!!!!

Awful

By 

from New York

Comments about KitchenAid Empire Red Pro Line Series Espresso Maker With Dual Independent Boilers:

The water pump on mine stopped working and KitchenAid said that they can't repair it. Then they said because of the machines age they can only give me $90 for it. So I get $90 and they get a machine that they will easily refurbish or use all of the functioning parts from and sell for hundreds. Definitely the last KA product that I will ever buy.

DO NOT BUY

By 

from Asheville, NC

Comments about KitchenAid Empire Red Pro Line Series Espresso Maker With Dual Independent Boilers:

I purchased the Proline Espresso maker several years ago and was totally disgusted by it. It never pulled a good crema despite all sorts of grinds tamps coffee roasts etc. It finally began to leak profusely from the boiler inlet pipe and getting water all over everything. Kitchen-Aid replaced it with a refurbished unit which was commendable(the representative was very pleasant and apologetic) but unfortunately the replacement unit did the same thing poor extraction followed by leaking. NO ONE will work on these units to repair them so I am the proud owner of a very expensive door stop. Possibly the new units are better designed but I wouldn't take the chance and the expense of replacement. I now use a SAECO which cost a third of the price of the Kitchen-Aid and produces a very good crema and has beeen totally reliable for years now!

A Bit Disappointed

I received this espresso maker a month ago. While it does a decent job, I expected more. The pressure gage for espresso barely gets into the ready range, and I get a lot of water with the steam.

Falls short in delivering quality espresso shots.

By 

from Key West, FL

Comments about KitchenAid Empire Red Pro Line Series Espresso Maker With Dual Independent Boilers:

I purchased the KES2102CA Espresso Machine on Oct 2nd. I have had it for a couple of weeks now and the experience has been less than satisfactory. The reason for purchasing the item were: (1) Design, (2) KitchenAid Brand, (3) Dual Boilers, (4) Expectations of great espresso.
The last item, (4) Expectations of Great Espresso, have fallen flat. Still have not been able to produce a quality espresso shot.
I have changed beans, different grinds, tamping pressures, bottled water, etc. The best I can get is a small film at the end of a 25 second pull.
A Nespresso Pod machines produce a better creme than this machine.
While this is an elegant machine, it falls short in delivering quality espresso shots.
It has dual boilers, but unable to control the temperature. The espresso boiler's needle indicates that it has just barely reached "ready" temperature.
The coffee flows quickly, even with a fine grind from a burr grinder, 20b tamp pressure.
It is just not living up to the KitchenAid name or videos.
Any suggestions before it is packed up and returned?
