Bottom Line: All in all - do not buy this one, unless what you are looking for is a small cup of quick black coffee and not espresso.
Positive Product Points

Does not look bad. Steams milk decently.

Negative Product Points

Sucks as espresso machine.

Detailed Commentary

I bought Krups espremio because I had a gift certificate and have been thinking of buying espresso machine for awhile.
I am a turkish coffee fan - extremely strong, sweet and jezve-brewed.
I tried pre-ground Lavazza Espresso and I had some crema and half-decent results. Other coffees I bought did not yield any crema at all or very little.
I attributed this to my inexperiency and did not return the machine which I should've done.
It comes with just one 1-cup filter so no double-shots.
The 25 second rule is nowhere close to being met. The coffee runs first as regular black and then pale with a little foaming at the very end.

I am looking at a decent model right now, something like a Gaggia or maybe La Pavoni.

Buying Experience

BBB is a good place and they will give you a 20% discounts regularly. However same new machine on e-bay can be bought for 30 bucks.
