Mr. Coffee ECM21


When you are in the market for the best espresso coffee maker you can find for home use, we recommend that you look at what features are important to you. If you enjoy a good cup of espresso in addition to a great cup of coffee, you should consider the...

This espresso maker has a built-in coffee pot, removable water tank and variable steam control

Because it offers both the espresso maker and coffee maker in one unit, it is rather large

This is the perfect choice for those who love brewed coffee, lattes, espresso and more because it comes with 1500 watts of power and has a milk frother.

Update to previous review


It has a removable water reservoir

Its made cheaply. Its starting to break in places. The steamer is no longer in place and it shoots steam from other openings, the expresso make has made its own hole in the mounting device that gushes out steam, and the coffee maker is now leaking with...

Ahhh, they still make this


Definitely worth the money, especially if you need the Win7 compatibility like I did.

Price, price, price. Do you know of any other Espresso machine for under $70 that also makes regular coffee? I love my cappuccinos in the mornings. Have had this for about two years now and just wanted to make sure they still make this brand in case I...

Yes, the coffee decanter mouth is very small and you must pour slowly. But that's just nit-picking

Good Enough


Shipped from New Jersey. I live in San Diego, so it took a week to get here which is odd for Newegg.

Everything is layed out really well. I like how I can remove the water resevoir and fill that instead of the Decanter on the coffee maker side. The expresso are also easy to make, and relatively easy to clean. The price is good too.

The coffee decanter is a little irritating. The opening to let water out is small, so unless you poor slowly you will get coffee on the counter. Also you need to wear in the coffee side a couple times before the decanter easily goes back on the...

Great pot... only one problem, after it brews it shuts off. No way or setting to keep the pot on to keep the coffee hot. There is a tiny hole a the top of the carafe where the coffee comes in.... and that's were the heat goes out. No way to keep your...

I am truly satisfied with the product.


My boyfriend just bought me the Mr. Coffee ECM21 Espresso Machine & Coffee Maker for Christmas. All throughout college and my first two years as a full-time worker, I worshipped my french press coffee pot. My entire morning routine centered around...
