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...

Great Coffeemaker

Although we now use our espresso maker for every day, we purchased this Krups coffee maker for entertaining. It was a great buy. It's frazzling to deal with the hassle of making coffee for large groups of people, but this maker is easy to use. We set...
