Nice Machine, shame about the coffee
on 17 May 2008
I have had a Krups espresso machine for years but I rarely use it on weekday mornings because it takes too long. So, I bought one of these a few days ago. The machine itself is nice and seems solidly made. The coffee doesn't live up to the hype though and it is inferior to what I can make with my old machine using pre-ground Lavazza. In fact, it is inferior to what you would get in most coffee chains. It doesn't have the depth of flavour and the crema is strangely bubbly and not dense enough.
