To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I got this 3-demitasse to replace the one I've used for the past 5 years, which has a tear in the aluminum at the base of the basket. It isn't a fatal flaw, but I think 5 years is a good life, and I'm keeping it around for when I need to serve more coffee to guests. It's a really simple machine that gets the job done reliably. For me, 3 demitasse is just the right amount to get me going in the morning.
