1.0 out of 5 stars Simple and durable, April 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mr. Coffee 4-Cup Steam Espresso System with Milk Frother (Kitchen)
I just ordered our second one of these. We purchased the identical model almost 10 years ago and it finally died. We make a full batch of espresso every single morning for homemade lattes with the occasional second round (if we have guests or want an early afternoon bonus latte on the weekends). The device is simple. Because there aren't any fancy options or electronic buttons, there are less possible things that can break on it, which is a plus for me. Since we make two lattes every morning (= 4 shots of espresso total, or one full carafe) I find it more efficient to microwave the milk instead of using the built in steamer/frother. As a former barista, the froth on top was fun, but not worth the effort at home.

In the last ten years, we have had to purchase a replacement carafe once because the original was accidentally set down too hard on the counter and shattered.

Update 7/11/15: Moving from 5 to 2 stars. The first one we order years ago was... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it a Latte!, January 15, 2016

I suspect this product is keeping Mr. Coffee in business. You cannot expect a product at this price to perform well, yet this machine has not let me down.

I have made a latte daily in my own house since 1998; usually two or three. A day. I have no shame.

I have owned a variety of expensive machines, including pump machines. The volume at which they operate is ridiculous. Next door neighbors should not be able to HEAR you simply making coffee! The Mr.Coffee model shocked me when I gave it a try about five years ago. I could not believe how well it worked and at such a quiet volume. It makes a lovely latte and perfect foam.

I am certain the machine was never designed for the use ...er ...abuse I put it through. After my two to three a day habit, the machine gives out in about 6 months. That's okay by me! For the price, it does not bother me to replace it.

Also, be mindful that the first five or so drinks in the new machine may have a slight... Read more
