Bought the machine in December 2012, it makes great Americano coffee, the espresso is somewhat weak, but we do not make anything but the Long Americano. It is a great treat, after we found the Major Dickinson dark roast. You need to try this roast it is a perfect blend for the Krups Espresseria.

There were a lot of things I liked about this machine, but the quality of the espresso wasn't one of them. That was why I had to return it. I had to conclude that it must press hot water rather than steam through the coffee grounds. Even though I selected the finest coffee grind (of 3 choices) and used Peet's Espresso Forte and selected the hottest water temperature (of 3 choices), I never got more than a strongly brewed coffee quality from the espresso. You could see through it as it poured out, and that is not espresso to me. It might be okay for coffee, but not espresso. I phoned Krups customer service and all they could say was that different people had different tastes in coffee (meaning my taste was too strong for what they could supply, I suppose).

I bought this mainly because I like coffee to have a froth on it... but mostly because I wanted a new toy. :-) I've only had the machine a week, but have messed around with it and found that coffee on the 4 oz setting is PERFECT.
I'm not an espresso expert, but at the 1.7 oz, it tastes pretty good to me.
I made cappucino using the stainless steel bottle and special hose and nozzle attachment. Really easy... heats up the milk first, squirts it in the cup, then steams it to make the froth.. then hit the espresso button and let it put in the espresso. Good, however, I'd rather steam the milk myself.... less cleanup than using that hose and special nozzle and bottle..
I've used a Jura machine in the past and this is similar, albeit smaller (and not nearly as expensive).
