Positive Product Points

makes an ok cup of espresso for a new user. The coffee pot is good. keeps water and coffee hot hot.

Negative Product Points

Takes to long to heat up and after it does the recovery time is a pain and could keep you in the kitchen for a long time.

Detailed Commentary

The Krupps 888 has its ups and downs. For a first time user it could be a little messy and a bit of a pain to use. I have found if you want to drink lattes this machine just cant heat enough milk to make it worth your time. On the up side of things is has a nice size reservoir. You also have the one appliance to make coffee and espresso all in one. The Krupps 888 is not too bad for a user that just wants to drink coffee, but to make espresso or lattes it just didnít cut it for me. Waiting for this to recover was a long process and more often I found myself using my microwave to heat up my milk. This reason is why I got rid of the machine to expensive just to use for hot water and coffee.

Buying Experience

Walked into Willams Sonoma and was told that Krupps was one of the best for the money.
The sales people were nice and took my money.
