Krups EA8298 Espresseria

Disappointing - Regret purchasing it!

 

I have this machine and I am rrreeeaaallllyyy disapointed with it! The main issue is to do with the steaming, the auto thing at the side produces luke warm milk, so you end up with a luke warm drink. If you try the steaming wand you have to cheat by...
