Waste of money if you intend to make espresso.

 

Looks good, may suffice for drip grinds and coarser.

Very inadequate for finer grinds

Worst coffeemaker

A Great Cup at a Reasonable Price

 

I think anyone buying this machine should keep in mind Krups customer service. It is just great. And, these days, that is hard to find. You can feel confident with this machine. I know I do.

In the interest of full disclosure, this is my 2nd Krups Coffee Maker. The first one had no timer, and I decided I needed a timer. This model allows the water to distribute more evenly to the ground coffee holder as it makes the coffee. I grind my own...

The timer can be a bit annoying to set up since it dosne't seem follow the usual standard. This can be re-done I think, but once you do it, you can get the hang of it. And one other negative that I think is important is that it is easy to spill water...

stylish but messy

 

Love the cute small, stylish design! I usually use single cups at a time so I was looking for the smallest burr grinder on the market, which this seemed to be. Even at the lowest cup setting, however, it grinds more than what I need for one mug of...

Krups Coffee Maker

 

Took a few times to get the strength like I like it. I ended up using the aroma setting and less coffee. I know experts say that the slower brewing time makes the coffee bitter, but it tastes fine to me. It still is faster than the Phillips coffee...
