Summary: This is like having a little Starbucks franchise in your kitchen. My boyfriend and I received one for Christmas this year and we have used it every day since! The drip coffee brewer is excellent and speedy, and the hot plate beneath is a wonderful addition if you're taking your time drinking a pot of coffee. I can't tell from the photo provided, but ours also has the milk steaming wand for lattes!
Summary: My husband bought this machine for me for Christmas. I wanted a machine that combined the coffee maker and the espresso maker into one machine. I was super happy when my new machine arrived. I have made a few cups of latte. The very first cup there was leaking. I thought that it may be normal. I made a few cups though and the leaking got about 5 times worse.
Summary: great product for its price, makes good coffee, good quality, obviously plastic, but well made, sould have something to press the coffee into the container, but again, a krups coffee machine for that price?, very good option, and the chance to have regular coffee for too much people ut's just a great idea.
Summary: I have to disagree with the other reviewers, but I'm sure it's a matter of personal taste. This machine makes terrible coffee. The unit does not heat the water hot enough so the coffee is bitter and muddy. The espresso is not much better. You will not see any crema on your espresso with this machine. If you want really good coffee, get a BUNN and ask for the free flow restrictor. I paid over 100.00 for this unit and it's going out on a yard sale this weekend.
Just ok - the older version of this machine was much better.

Summary: The machine does not have enough pressure to do bothe espresso and streaming milk. It's just ok considering there aren't too many coffee mackines with both espresso and american coffee to pick from within this price range.
