Bottom Line: Quick and easy to use - delivers great coffee!
Positive Product Points

Grinds, tamps, doses, pours & dumps at the touch of a button. Easy and quick to use, consistant good results, filters water, self cleans.

Negative Product Points

The coffee could be a little hotter.
Oily beans dont move down into the grinder at times.
Bit of a pain having to cool the system down after steaming before you can do another shot.

Detailed Commentary

I actually have the Krups Orchestro (KRUPS 889) which is basically the same machine as the C1000.  It costs £399.00 here in the UK which is around $600.00 US (not bad as the same mode retails stateside for $899!!!).

Anyway, this baby is really easy to use. I‘m a quadraplegic with limited hand function and find this machine a breeze.  Simply fill it with water, tip in some beans and your ready to pour a shot at the touch of a single button.  You can of course adjust the grind, the amount of coffee to be ground (7, 10 or 14 grams) and the amount of water to pumped through.  The machine also has a steam wand for frothing/warming milk (what decent espresso maker doesn‘t?).  The wand also acts as a hot water dispenser (great for Americanos).

Add to all this a self cleaning system, water filtration and an easy to access dump box for used grounds.
