Best cup of coffee I have had, but very unreliable quality
1 September 2011
Summary: To start with, this makes the best cup of coffee of any coffee maker I have ever owned. The downside is that it is very unreliable in the long term. So far I have purchased one unit where the grinder quit working and one where it just would not brew the coffee. I went to buy another unit which was in an opened box, but before I bought it I asked the seller to try it, the grinder did not work!
Summary: I received this at the end of August/beginning of September 2009. It stopped brewing all of a sudden in the middle of October 2009. I wish I had seen that so many others have experienced the same problem. As it is too difficult to return this to the service center, and because I am not convinced I will not be sent another defective machine, it will end up in the trash after I buy another coffee maker. Too bad. I was a loyal Krups customer until now.
Summary: I loved this coffee machine hard for three months, then it up and died. The grider just stopped grinding. Do some research before you buy or at least take good care of your warranty information becuase it seems like this is par for the course with this machine. Oh, KM7000, it was beautiful but brief.
