This coffee maker is an overall fantastic product. My wife and I bought it for our new apartment when we did away with our Nespresso. We decide that it was time for us to reduce our clutter in the kitchen by getting appliances that can do many things at once, which lead to getting this Krups two-in-one coffee maker. It definitely does the job that we wanted, which was reducing the clutter, but it also did much more than that. My wife and I have found it much more convenient since we have the ability to make both espresso and american coffee at the same time considering that we each have one or the other every morning. Plus, you are definitely getting quality for your money because it brews great coffee that does not ever come out with coffee grounds. Plus, the general size of the whole thing makes it both great at making just the right amount of coffee and makes it relatively easy to clean up when coffee grounds get stuck here and there.
