Makes a very good cup of coffee, although I only really ever used the espresso function. I have owned it for just over 3 years, and it has now packed up. I descaled it regularly every month or two, but the performance got worse and worse over time, until it now can't pump water through the filter at all. An electrical service centre says that they cannot help, so I have decided to bin it and buy something else. (read more)

My old one used a normal milk jug.... (read more)

I am a newcomer to the Espresso coffee scene and was given a Krups F8744338 Crematic Coffee Centre as a birthday prezzie from my partner. I must say that it produces a great espresso and the added bonus of the frother/hot water nozzle is great for making a quick cuppa when you fancy something different (much quicker than boiling the kettle!)The only downside is that the instructions could be written a little more clearly as it does take a little getting used to. Then again I am one of those... (read more)
