Consumer review (

A good thing that didn't last.


I saw a gadget guy on TV, about a year ago, describing a $2000 Capresso "coffee center". I thought "maybe they make something good I could afford", and ended up paying about $200 for a (white) Capresso Coffee TEC 471. What a surprise! Our regular ...

Best-tasting coffee we ever made.

Unit didn't last, and service was a disappointment.

Capresso CoffeeTec


If I was going to spend money on something like a high-end coffeemaker, I made sure that I did my homework first. I wanted a coffeemaker that had a timer, caraffe that maintains hot coffee, without the need for a warming plate and is fairly easy to ...

Makes good, hot coffee, easy to use.

Milk frother is unreliable.

Steam is nice feature but after first week we rarely used it

Capresso rules !


A little about my requirements. I have long loved good coffee, and I drink it in quantity (often 2 pots a day myself) while working long and frantic days from my home office. I don't have a lot of time to fuss with coffee making. I need lots of good ...

Best auto-drip coffee ever, looks great too.

Big countertop footprint. Many more features than I need. Pricey at list.

Coffee Great, Milk Impossible


I purchased this unit at Williams Sonoma for my husband, who was truly impressed with the ability of the airtight thermal carafe to keep his java fresh and warm. I was thrilld the first time I made lattes with beautiful frothed milk atop for my...

Coffee frothed milk hot water


The Capresso Machine works well for what it was designed for. It makes very good coffee without that bitter taste you get from some coffee makers. Whether it is because it brews quickly. doesn't have a hotplate I don't know I do know the coffee taste b...

Great Coffee and frother. Can't break carafe!

Price. 10 cups vs 12.

A worthwhile commitment


First of all, I am a self-confessed "gadget lover", so my tastes and tolerance for complexity are probably higher than the average "java guzzler". That being said, I think this is a wonderful product. I got it to replace two separate units, an...

Great tasting coffee, easy milk frother, looks cool

You have to want the froth feature to justify the price

Happy Together


After reading other Epinion reviews I was hesitant to spend this much on a coffee maker/cappuccino machine. However, after buying and using it, I can only say this about those reviews:

Hot great coffee and instant cappuccino

The cost is more than most people would spend on a coffee machine.
