Positive Product Points

solid machine, great form and looks terrific in kitchen. real conversation piece and quite rare here.

Negative Product Points

As others have so well reviewed and stated it is a shame there is no automatic turn-off swith. Krups could also be more generous with their 3 sample filter papers.  I too made my own without any problem.
Cleaning out is messy.

Detailed Commentary

still avalable with various French internet suppliers, but now made in Portugal and sold here only in black. However, on Ebay Germany it is sold in white too. In both countries it is rather expensive compared to the USA prices, but it is worth the money.  It is a solid built machine with a unique method of brewing which makes what I call "continental" type coffee - smooth & rich - which filters can never give you.  I guess its the high temperature of the water that does it.  Its great to watch it function and, as stated, a delight to drink.  As its rather rich I think this machine is a supplement to a run of the mill filter model.

Buying Experience

by internet in France. Quick dispatch & well packed.

Three Month Followup

find it working well. its rather fiddly throwing away the used coffee and filter paper beneath.

One Year Followup

apart from Germany you cannot buy a white coloured one now except very rarely through good old EBAY.FR and I'm trying for my second one.  I think it is already a classic and continues to make excellent fine, continental tasting, coffee.  I hear Pres. Obama includes one on his White House "wish-list".
