Fantastic bean to cup machine

 

Having done lots of research we decided on this Krups bean to cup machine. It gives us everything we wanted in a coffee machine: espresso, latte, Americano... it will even froth milk for the kid's baby chinos or hot chocolates! We would recommend this...

Good but not perfect

 

+ makes nice coffee quickly & easily + nice to be able to adjust volume - steamer nozzle blows off if used twice in quick succession - coffee a bit on the cool side for me - quite a lot of vibration - not exactly noisy, but not a peaceful experience...

Worst purchase I've ever made

 

This is obviously no reflection of John Lewis. I bought Krups as I like the brand it makes me think quality. I am writing this review after having the product for 2 months. We decided on this machine as we wanted to make latte coffee, what a bad...

Brilliant

 

No complaints so far. Makes great drinks and is compact too. Bought some extra tablets, filter and descaling powder as they will be needed soon. Instructions are mainly pictures but fairly easy to understand.

Just a little niggle!

 

Others have commented on the poor instructions. Just watch out for the occasional cup of hot water when the bean dispenser is about 25% full. If you forget to push the beans towards the grinder that's what you get! Remember to keep the been hopper...

Good coffee machine let down by poor Instruction Manual

 

Purchased Krupps EA8108 bean to cup machine before Christmas and after extensive experimenting with the settings have now mastered the technique to produce perfect espresso and cappachino coffees. I suggest users seek out on the Internet the...

Excellent coffee maker

 

Bought the Krups EA8108 after visiting friends who have same model. We were impressed with how quick and easy this is to use especially when making more than one cup of coffee. Would highly recommend it to anyone else. Instructions could be better but...

Excellent product, thoroughly recommended!

 

Love my coffee and always fancied a bean-to-cup machine. Have had many of the other types of coffee makers from electric to jug to plunger but never owned 'the real thing' so I thought I'd treat myself. Looked round at many different brands and models...
