How does an electric espresso maker compare to a stovetop model?

We trialled the Leaf & Bean Electric Espresso Maker and compared it to the Pezzetti Bellexpress stovetop moka pot.

Sunbeam Cafe Series Twin Pump

After eleven years our first Sunbeam Cafe Series started to fail.
On average we make 3 cups per day, that is a lot of coffees produced .
Upgraded to the latest Sunbeam Cafe series Twin pump and it is even better, being a little more convenient to use.

Stay with the best

Simple, down-to-earth, you can't do better than a Bialetti. Frankly, why would you want to?

Wrong comparison!

A made in Italy Bialetti is the only benchmark for stovetops.
Electric alternative is decidedly second best.
