Summary: stole my money, It was a trap, lied a big scam, the picture was one thing and what I got was something completely different, detriorada not work without attachment, horible, the worst thing that could have ever imagined
Summary: I have purchased 2 of these - Only ONE experienced a failure and that is because a calcium particle got into he fine tubing of the espresso portion. I recommend the filters on at least the espresso side - they will prevent this issue (drip coffee side doesn't use pumps - std. pressure/gravity design- As this was a water issue and not a machine issue, it isn't a flaw.
Summary: I replaced a Krups Centro 888 with the XP2070 and am very sorry that my Cafe Centro became troublesome. The XP2070 is a piece of junk. The plastic housing began to melt and warp after 2 weeks of use. It continued to warp to the point that the machine is now useless. Krups Customer Service informs me that my XP2070 was manufactured over 5 years before I bought it and since I bought it on eBay rather than one of their "recognized retailers", there is no warranty.
Summary: I bought this Coffee/Espresso Maker 6 months ago since I was very happy with it's predecessor. DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE !!! if you really want a reliable and working coffee machine. The machine was working ok for the first 4 months. BUT the first time I scheduled the timer in the evening for a 4am coffee (believe me, at 4am I do need a coffee) I got up to find the kitchen floor covered with water.... and no coffee.
Summary: Surprisingly a good item. We have been pleased with the functionality and quality, so far. (We have only had it for a little over 2 weeks and have not had any of the issues mentioned by other reviewers) We love the fact we can program the coffer maker to start brewing at 6AM or anytime we want. The expresso maker is wonderful. However, frothing milk for a latte can be improved. (not sure if its a user error) I can't get the milk to froth properly but it is nice and hot.
Summary: The Krups 2070 is a very versatile machine, well-designed and easy to use. It makes excellent coffee and a good cup of espresso with a nice crema. Higher end machines will make a stronger cup with more crema, but cost you at least twice as much and will make only espresso. If you have a small kitchen and room for only one coffeemaker this is it. The only shortcoming of this product is that the control electronics aren't as robust as the rest of the machine.
Summary: I purchased two of these machines. One I used daily and the other only occasionally. Now, after three years both have stopped working within several months of eachother. The problem is in the electronics. I expected better quality.
Summary: I bought this product about 2.5 years ago and it finally DIED on me. I plugged it in and there is no power to the controls. However, before finally committing suicide the machine would leak water every time it brewed coffee. It went to the repair shop on 2 occasions after having owned it for 8 months only to hemorrhage water soon after getting back from the repair shop. I wrote about this problem to KRAPS and they did not reply.
Summary: Bought this machine at big lots for $69. Right away it started leaking from the bottom, and the leaking only got worse. Exchanged it for a new one. After one use, the espresso part stopped working. Called customer service and they said it was probably a bad pump. Machine is REALLY loud too. I returned the second one. Total waste of my time. If the machines had continues working I would have given this a better review since the coffee and espresso was good.
