Rated 4 out of 5 by Berto21 from Little Machine that delivers I have been using the mr. coffee espresso machine for about a month and have been pleasantly surprised. First thing I love about the espresso machine is that it takes up very little room in your kitchen yet performs like a machine twice it size. Also, I love that the espresso maker is very easy to use and clean up is a breeze. The machine includes a milk steamer to make cappuccino easy to make. Overall this machine is a great value for its price. If want a machine that is easy to use and need basic options making espressos and cappuccino this your machine. This espresso maker is not for people wanting a machine with more nuts and bolts. Important Disclaimer I was given an espresso and cappuccino maker to test by the manufacturer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LauraC from Disappointing The Mr. Coffee espresso machine with steam wand was disappointing. It is very light and feels cheap. The steam wand placement is difficult to use any type of larger mug or steam pitcher as it is low. You cannot simultaneously pull espresso shots and steam milk. Turning off the steamer is difficult as you can't let go of your steamed cup and need to reach over machine to turn a dial which does not move easily and the whole unit then tips over because it is so light. The espresso pulls very long shots and have no crema; more like watered-down espresso. I received this item to sample and was excited to try it but quickly realized it was not going to deliver decent espresso beverages.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PLynch from Good machine but causing trouble I am on my second Mr. Coffee Steam Espresso. The first lasted several years, used every day. The second one is about 1 year old and has worked fine until this week. Water is leaking out of the coffee ground holder at the end of the brewing cycle. The coffee ground holder actually moves, loosening up - to allow the water to leak. When attaching the coffee ground holder, you have to move the handle to the right quite a bit to get a 'lock'.... but to do that, the plastic locking mechanism is not square with the top of the coffee maker. I suspect the gasket that the coffee ground holder links into is bad- although I have tried to clean it with a soft cloth and water. Any suggestions or fixes for this?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mkkp from Too time consuming I was somewhat dissatisfied with this espresso maker. The instructions seem a little complicated and I had to read them several times. The espresso takes way longer to brew than expected and came out looking watered down. I had only put in enough water up to the 2 and then water to the steam line, but it brews too much so the espresso is weaker. It's difficult to steam and milk went everywhere, even when the steamer was fully submerged. It did a decent job at lightly foaming it for an espresso, but not enough foam for a cappuccino. Overall, this machine takes too much time. It seemed perfect for a "quick" latte, but it takes too long to brew.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Brit12345 from Wouldn't recommend My boyfriend and I bought this machine 3 months ago. About a month ago, the espresso started smelling really funny when it was brewing. When we first got the machine, it worked great and only took a couple minutes. Now it takes forever because the espresso comes out one drop at a time. The steaming part of the machine doesn't move, which makes it somewhat difficult to use. You get what you pay for, and with this being the cheapest option out there, I can't complain too much.

Rated 3 out of 5 by EspressoLover from Cheap Plastic A gift, this machine has generally been a very good item. However, a few months into use, the handle on the decanter broke off from the plastic holding the screw in place. I tried to repair it, but that's not possible. Recently (roughly two years into use), the handle of the coffee basket has chipped off. It is still connected but I have to hold the basket itself to attach and unattach. If I am making multiple lattes, this is a bad idea--hot metal. The plastic is cheap and worthless. However, on a good note, I've had a couple of years of daily lattes which saves a lot of money going to a retail coffee shop!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JESSI from HORRIBLE CHEMICAL TASTE AND SMELL I BOUGHT THE EARLIER VERSION MANY YEARS AGO AND IT WORKED VERY WELL, BUT THEN STARTED TO WORK SLOWLY SO I BOUGHT A NEW ONE TO REPLACE IT WITH AND WHEN I RECEIVED IT I RAN THROUGH A CUP OF JUST WATER TO CLEAN IT BEFORE I USED IT. WHEN I PUT MY COFFEE IN IT THE NEXT TIME THE COFFEE AND MILK HAD A VERY STRONG CHEMICAL SMELL, SO I DECIDED TO MAKE ANOTHER CUP, AND THAT CUP CAME OUT JUST AS BAD. I TRIED A SIP AND YOU COULD TASTE A HORRIBLE TASTE EVEN OVER THE COFFEE. I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO RUN 25 MORE ROUNDS THROUGH IT AND IT IS STILL JUST AS HORRIBLE SMELLING. THIS UPDATED VERSION IS NOT AOF GOOD QUALITY. THEN WHEN I TRIED TO CALL THE CUSTOMER SERVICE LINE WAS NOT WILLING TO HELP ME AT ALL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cuidado from Loving my third Mr. Coffee espresso machine I have just purchased my third Mr. Coffee Espresso maker but had to purchase it at a yard sale. I went to every store that sold small appliances and could not find one. I didn't give up. What I purchased may be an older model as the cover is the large one that I like. I do not like the smaller curved water receptacle as I have arthritic thumbs and found it difficult to maneuver. I give it four stars as each of the others I purchased new and they only lived avout six years. I would like them to last longer. Also, keep the larger deeply ridged knobs and covers.
