I've seen it under a couple of different names.  I had the stove top version called a Bellman.  It's basically a moka pot, but it did make a bit of crema.  The milk steamer works pretty well, and until I got a standalone stove top steamer I used the Bellman.

I seem to remember Bellman selling the electric version, but the one that comes up in Google searches mostly is the Vesubio.  It appears identical in every way, and I wouldn't be surprised if the parts are interchangeable.  Even the model name is the same CX-25 vs. CXE-25.  My guess is that the E stands for electric.

That is probably a Bellman espresso maker and milk steamer. Look here for instructions.

Ok, looks like it, but what about that bottom? Does mine have a built in heater on the bottom?
Do they make good coffee/espresso?

I hope I'm not too late to the party!

That's a Bellman CXE-25. The E is the Electric version of the CX25. You might find it written underneath.

It can make a good cup of coffee though it takes some practice to get your techniques down. You know it's good when you can't just throw a switch and make it work, right!?
I've been chatting with another user about our methods and experiences if you want to look up that conversation.

"Bellman CXE-25"

Good luck!
