Coffeelicious was reviewed by Marco Elders, sales support manager at JJ Darboven. "Fiona works quietly and tidy, all the technical skills are out of this world," he said. "Beautiful crema film with a fine body. Well balanced, sweet, fruity and well recognizable mocha tones of espresso combine beautifully with the sweet foam."
