Positive Product Points

Fast Warm-up Time
Large water tank
Consistent quality (at least for milk-based rinks),
Steaming o.k.
Thermoblock System = Can be left on all day unattended

Negative Product Points

Thermoblock system = Temperature (and taste) drops after first drinks
Filter holder etc. very light-weight, plasticky appearance (like all krups) - at least compared to Gaggia classic
Espresso never REALLY good

Detailed Commentary

The Espresso Maximo is often referred to as a *semicomercial* system -but this holds true only compared to other KRUPS systems. Users with an ambition to brew really good drinks will soon experience upgrade longings (this is why i bought a GAGGIA CLASSIC a month ago - it IS a difference).
Twinned with a consistent grinder, one gets the morning cappuccinos with minimal fuss (including decent steaming). No more and no less.
As the MAXIMO is a discontinued product, one can often find it at sales price (got mine a year ago for ca. 150 EU)
