  • My First Espresso Maker!!!

    Apr 9, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Made a very nice espresso shot with lovely crema, Auto-Cappuccino is the bomb!
    Cons: It did leak some until I read a bunch of reviews and followed some advice.

    Summary: I have a friend who introduced me to Starbucks' Barista espresso makers, and I loved the cappuccino they made, BUT I was concerned that at their price ($350-400 unless on sale for not much less), that I wouldn't use it enough to justify that kind of ... read more

  • Worthy The Money??

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: convenience of water reservoir, no steam build-up
    Cons: expensive, drips after done

    Summary: This is one pretty looking piece of machinery! It is modern looking, made by Krups (Ooohh la-la!) and adds a European Flair to any kitchen. What it does well: The espresso it makes is generally much smoother than steam machines ... read more

  • Great Espresso

    Feb 10, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Produces great espresso and frothed milk.
    Cons: As with all espresso machines, clean up is a little involved.

    Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this machine and read that it was an excellent machine in its price range. I have had this machine for about a year now and it always make a great espresso with lots of crema. The auto-cappuccino frother ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice crema
    Cons: leaks terribly

    Summary: The machine leaks terribly. Both filtres with and without grounds. Krups has no advice on their website which doesn't even reference this product. While I liked the price and the design, leaks are unacceptable. When I managed to get a cup out of it, ... read more

  • Too bad it leaks

    Aug 12, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Froth works great and espresso tastes great
    Cons: It leaks

    Summary: I did the usual pre-purchase back ground check on the type of item I wanted and found I wanted a pump system and the E.S.E. / pod option. This unit has both and at a good price (I paid $164 at Bloomingdales). The problem is it leaks, not crazy bad and ... read more

  • very disappointing

    Pros: great design and look
    Cons: leaks. cumbersome milk frothing tube.

    Summary: The more you drink, the more you experiment and the more you read about the art of espresso, the more demanding you become. This is true after owning a steam-driven Krups for over a year and then switching to a pump-driven one. In my case, ... read more

  • Great Value

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Espresso. Great Price.
    Cons: Milk frothing/steaming tube makes people nervous.

    Summary: I purchased the Krups Espresso Novo 2300 ($199) for my office and the Francis Francis ($450) for my home. The Francis Francis machine appealed to my wife's aesthetics, and I figured for $450 it would be a great machine. I could be doing something wrong ... read more

  • Excellent espresso and cappuccino at home!

    Oct 13, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast, easy
    Cons: cleaning

    Summary: Being not so spoiled to buy $1K espresso machines, I bough this one because it had automated cappuccino maker, which other ones lacked. I also did pre-shopping research, finding that only 50% recommend it (here at epinions). I looked at other ones ... read more

  • overall a great little machine

    Jul 25, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy to use, relatively inexpensive, great frother
    Cons: machine does not accept tall or even oversized mugs, even under the frother.

    Summary: Let me begin by saying we are not espresso fanatics, yet we enjoy them enough to purchase them from our local coffee shop occasionally. So we thought we could enjoy them more (and cheaper) by making them at home with a fairly good machine. We just ... read more

  • Disappointment.

    Mar 13, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clean look, simple controls.
    Cons: Leaked, making machine useless.

    Summary: This was the first of five Espresso machines I recently tried. It was also my most upsetting espresso experience to date. Let's get right to it. The machine leaked...like a sieve. It even leaked without pods or grounds in it!! Thus, ... read more

  • Leaky and Flawed

    Jan 6, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: They had good ideas
    Cons: It leaks. Made using the machine impossible.

    Summary: As I tore the paper from the box on Christmas day, I saw peeking from under the wrapping what I have been hoping to get. A brand new espresso machine. The machine was the Krups Novo 2300 plus. My father explains to me that he went to the store and got ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Pump machine, Easy steaming attachment
    Cons: Plastic, grey, it won't impress friends

    Summary: For those of you that don't know, there are basically two types of espresso machines in the consumer (read:home) marketplace: steam and pump. What's the difference? Well, steam basically has a kettle inside that heats the water well past boiling, ... read more

    Pros: Pros: the auto-frothing unit
    Cons: Krups customer service. What a joke!

    Summary: I did a lot of reading before purchasing this machine. The first machine I got worked well for about a month the auto-frothing feature is great it works really well. I tried the machine with pods and the espresso feature worked well. I am however mostly ... read more
