Gemilai CRM3605 Italian espresso Coffee Machine unboxing for your reference. This is the new edition accoridng to the seller as the gemilai the branding word comes only in 1 logo instead previously got mini tagline below.
Winning point for me are:
- led lighting
- digital timer countdown
- love the pressure meter in the middle.
- auto stop which is set manually at 25 second.
- 58 mm portafilter (weight about 480g) which is similar to cafe standard. (using average 18-22 gram coffee powder
- milk frothing pressure not consistent. Fast then slow then fast. will certainly impacting the swirl. DO let me know if you guys face the same problem as me – as the seller told me its normal, my friend said no.
- very sensitive espresso grind size. If you got the right grind size, the pressure meter will show in the middle 12o’clock and perfect drip
- if the size is not right, it will become watery and extract very fast.
The brush is for the purpose of washing the mouth of espresso.
Close up look of the machine where it does look sturdy and solid with its stainless steel outlook. The rest behind are more like better quality plastic or PVC with heat resistance.
More professional look of steam head and knob.
Temping with solid head is different. certainly makes it more flat and compact compare to the plastic.
This portafilter handle is very solid that easily weigh about 480 g compare to Petrus plastic holder which is about 160g.
Even the milk froth is longer than usual. Which had a set back of slow and fast pressure. overall is kinda perfect.
Look at my cuppa latte. Near to a glass of cafe quality.

1.For the coffee powder, normally we suggest use the fresh coffee bean and use the coffee grinder to adjust the fines .
For the double cup: we suggest 18-20g
2.The pressure of coffee is not as high as possible. The best pressure is 7-9Bar, but if you want higher pressure, you should grind the coffee powder more finely, put a little more powder, and the temperature of the water should not be too High, otherwise coffee will have a burnt smell .
