Both water and waste compartments easily accessible, something my previous machine had issue with.
Great product overall, especially for the price!
In use I've found it delivers consistently good coffee, at just the right temperature. The fact that Krups have included a strength control on the front panel, effectively a second one in the grinding mechanism (finely-ground tasting, to my mind, stronger than coarsely-ground coffee), plus a continuously variable liquid volume control, means that the perfect cup of coffee is always attainable.
The initial setup was a little bit of a rigmarole, but you only have to do that when the machine is either brand new, or has been out of use for a long time. During that process, it spurted hot water all over the worktop from its steam nozzle, while I diligently held a 600ml receptacle under the coffee outlets as instructed in the manual. Don't get caught out - make sure you catch what comes out of the steam thingy as well!
After that it has been largely simple to use in everyday life. The grinding and coffee-brewing is completely automated. Some of the symbols on the front panel are perhaps a little cryptic, requiring a rummage in the manual to decode the difference between, say a shot of steam (looks like a drawing of a shower) and a rinse of the coffee nozzles (looks like a shower, but without a broken line in the middle... subtle).
The machine makes good frothy milk for lattes and cappucinos, quite easily. There's the usual slightly dark art of judging how far into the milk to put the steam outlet, but it hasn't failed me yet.
One nice feature is that you can move the coffee nozzles up and down to accommodate different sizes of cup or mug - and (unlike my previous espresso machine) it is possible to get a full-size mug under the nozzles without having to resort to dangerous leaning-tower-of-Pisa manoevres around hot liquids.
The machine displays a red light when it needs its coffee grounds container emptying.. and the same red light when the drip tray is full, or the coffee drawer needs cleaning (all simple operations). You have to attend to all 3 things before the red light will go out and the machine will make coffee again, which I found a slight wind-up. You can always remove the drip tray and put it straight back in, of course - it's not clever enough to know whether you emptied the contents down the drain, unless it was full.
In terms of the sneaky "pact with the devil" that some appliances trick you into signing, this machine is not too bad. You have to use Krups cleaning tablets, roughly every 300 cups, and they cost about a pound a pop if you buy them online. Those of us in hard water areas will also have to shell out for descaler, which would be another modest expense, but not shockingly pricey. It's rather different to a vacuum cleaner that needs £2-each bags, say.
One odd thing that I was musing on, whilst watching this machine make yet another lovely cup of coffee, is that you buy coffee beans carefully packaged in a protective atmosphere, then they sit in a plastic hopper on top of the machine with a loose-fitting lid. I'm sure it doesn't make any difference, as beans are kind of 'sealed' anyway compared to ground coffee, but I did wonder if that was a design oversight by Herr Krups.
In summary, it's a very competent bean-to-cup coffee machine. Keep the manual handy for the first few days (or weeks) to decode some of the lesser-used symbols and functions.
Unfortunately I have enough niggles with it so that I can't recommend it. Firstly, there is a basic strength setting (weak/strong) and 3 grinding settings. This is not good if you want 2 cups of strong espresso or indeed a longer, strong coffee - it will only have a single shot. The manual recommends making 2 or more separate shots in the same cup if you want this - not ideal.
Finally the unit as a whole vibrates when grinding and dispensing. I've included a video that shows this - the effect is that you cannot press a button and walk away because the coffee cup moves away from the dispensers! Better design on the drip tray could have overcome this.
There are other coffee makers in this range that have more controls and if you want something other than a basic single shot of espresso I would give them a look.
Has a tank at the bank that lifts up and out easily, the top flips aside so you can fill it with water and then being clear, you can easily see how much water is left. A dial allows you to choose the fineness of the grind and a second dial allows you to choose the volume of drink you want so you can make a full cup of coffee or an espresso or anything in between. The coffee comes out of two nozzles so you can do two cups together if you press the button twice- it does an initial grind and goes through one complete cycle producing half a cup in each cup and then automatically repeats the cycle to complete the two cups. There is also a milk frothing nozzle that you can used to make lattes or just to froth up milk for a hot chocolate. It's dead easy to wipe clean and indicators come on to tell you when the grounds need emptying or the drop tray needs emptying. I'm a total convert to this little beauty now and never bother with instant coffee anymore. Switching this on in the morning and drinking that first cup of coffee 2 minutes later is now one of my absolute pleasures.... oh, and by the way, it makes the coffee at the perfect temperature for drinking so unlike pouring hot water from the kettle into instant coffee and then waiting for it to cool, with this, your coffee really is ready to drink in 2 minutes !!!
