Huh, "weak" steaming with the Elektra Semiautomatica? Uh, Jim (Schulman)
rates it 10 out of 10 for UP TO 6oz milk to be steamed (enough milk for TWO
cappuccinos) and 7 of 10 for over 7oz milk for mega sized (lame) Lattes. In
is write up Quote:
"If the cappuccino lover's score were purely for cappuccinos, I'd rate the
Semiautomatica a 10, since it's perfect. However, because the performance
for lattes is anemic, I have to knock off a point and give it a 9.0. If you
are one of the right thinking people who smashes any cup larger than six
ounces that gets too close to an espresso machine, it earns a perfect score.
If you are one of those lost soul +12 ounce latte drinkers, the
Semiautomatica will disappoint, only meriting a 7.0."
