An engineering miracle, IMHO


Highly recommended. (I wrote all this before but then saw I'd written it as a comment to some else's review (newbyitus), so I'll do it again.) I love this little masterpiece & the minds that created it. Small, cheap, sturdy, foolproof ...

Bravo to Krups - Espresso magnifico!


I have relied on Starbucks and other local cafés to get my espresso fix, until my husband purchased the Krups Espresso Bravo machine for my birthday. Now, I can indulge in a great espresso or cappuccino at my every whim! The machine is small enough...

Easy to use. Quality espresso. Steams efficiently. Four-cup quantity. Reasonably priced.

Directional guide is confusing. The nozzle gets extremely hot and sometimes clogs.
