Fantastic bean to cup machine

 

Having done lots of research we decided on this Krups bean to cup machine. It gives us everything we wanted in a coffee machine: espresso, latte, Americano... it will even froth milk for the kid's baby chinos or hot chocolates! We would recommend this...

Good but not perfect

 

+ makes nice coffee quickly & easily + nice to be able to adjust volume - steamer nozzle blows off if used twice in quick succession - coffee a bit on the cool side for me - quite a lot of vibration - not exactly noisy, but not a peaceful experience...

Coffee on tap!

 

We purchased this machine in Jan 15 (it is now Apr) and have used it every day since. Very happy with the results and so far the machine has performed flawlessly. Not bothered about frothing and all that jazz, so don't know how well it works. as...

Good coffee machine let down by poor Instruction Manual

 

Purchased Krupps EA8108 bean to cup machine before Christmas and after extensive experimenting with the settings have now mastered the technique to produce perfect espresso and cappachino coffees. I suggest users seek out on the Internet the...
