Summary: Excellent product, easy to use and clean. Even the kids can set it up to make coffee. Bought it for my wife who goes out everyday and buys coffee, so its already paid for itself! If there is a negative, it is that the coffee pot itself is made of very thin glass and I suspect it will break, but hasn't yet.
Summary: I bought this product because I had tried the Starbucks Verisimo and was very disappointed. For the price I paid for the Verisimo and the quality of the coffee, ended up taking it back! Then I searched on line for a coffee maker that would do espresso and would not need pods....! I found this one at a decent price! I love this coffee maker, best coffee maker I have ever had by far!!! I don't find myself going to Starbucks anymore, well maybe when I'm out and about...Lol!
Summary: When we first got this coffee maker we loved it. Then we could never get the expresso/cappacico make to work right. Then the water reservior for the coffe maker started leaking. I looked at and could never tell where the leak was coming from. Think twice before buying this one.
Summary: I've been through my share of coffee makers over the years...from cheapos to expensive ones to midpriced. We had this coffee maker/espresso combo 14 months ... and then it died. The drip side just quit working. I've had other coffee makers last for 5 to 10 years. So that alone sours me on the ENTIRE brand. The Espresso was fun for awhile ... but ya know, we stopped using it. It was good tasting but difficult to make.
Summary: I love the timer and being able to wake up to the smell of coffee. It is very easy to use. The milk frother is not great. I use an extra filter in the coffee because when I don't the end of the pot is a little bitter.
Quality, low price anywhere and delivered as promised

Summary: Great coffee maker. Consistent brew quality but I wish the carafe could hold more cups of coffee. If you buy this, remember, you need to buy the "V" shaped filters since you would have to stuff the round filters in but they work okay. Brew time is faster than previous makers I have had.
