This product saved me money.

 

The Krups Allegro espresso maker saved me a lot of money because before I bought it, I spent a lot of money at Starbucks. It is really easy to use and clean, making it great for everyday use. It only takes just a few minutes in the morning to use and...

Compact and easy to use but not the greatest espresso

 

This espresso maker is a great value for its price. It is compact and easy to store while also being easy to use and clean. I will say however that despite trying many different brands of espresso with this maker we have found that the espresso...

Krups Allegra
