Honest Customer Reviews

We love this machine. We have limited space and need to have both a coffee maker and a cappucino maker in that space. We have had none of the difficulties that others mention. But we did take the black plastic sleeve off of the frother and that has made a huge difference. With it on we got bubbles. Now we get great froth. And if we pack the espresso well we get an excellent crema. From Amazon.com

Ive had a Krupps Duel Coffee/expresso maker from BB&B for five years now, and have used the coffee machine nearly every day and the expresso part at least twice a week. Everything still work on it and it does exactly what it is supposed too. It is not as fancy as other machines, but if you want a simple machine that can do expresso and coffee. From Amazon.com
