We were given this as a gift. We accidently broke the little pot but our large mugs fit under just fine and we still use the machine. Read full review »


Don't expect barista quality but not bad

byleanbh Feb 22, 2010

Pros Easy to Use, Fast Brewing, Stylish
Cons Difficult to Clean, Don't like the cap
Recommended it? Yes

I received this as a gift and I have to say it does the job of making a little fancier coffee than your regular old cup of Joe that you brew. I was a little unsure if the steamer would in fact steam the milk but it did a good job. It works best with skimmed milk for some reason rather than whole... Read full review »

This Mr. Coffee Espresso Machine Was my first love. I am a avid coffee drinker. When I moved away to college, I had to have a espresso machine-My kitchen wasnt too big either, so this fit perfectly. My coffee was always deliciously fresh and Hot!! The Foam worked perfect. The only thing is it... Read full review »

Pros Easy to Use, Fast Brewing

Great price, but not very durable. Worked well until it broke. 2 others I know had this and mine outlasted theirs, but all 3 are now broken. At least its affordable! Read full review »


Taste great but worth the hassle?

bytpctd Oct 23, 2009
Helpful? 1 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros It does make good tasting esspresso/cappucino
Cons Hard to use. Poor Durablity
Recommended it? No

I purchased this espress maker so I could make the espresso/capuccino to take with me to work in the morning.  Altough it does taste good, it takes too long to make it-too many steps-and it takes a while for the coffee to actually fill up the small carafate.  Then you have to make sure you have a...

Pros Compact. Good price. Espresso part shut off automatically after making it.
Cons None.
Recommended it? Yes

If you want to make a cup of COFFEE, then you need to buy a coffee maker!

This product is for making Espresso and frothing milk for lattes and mochas. I really think that it does a great job. After making the espresso, I remove the plastic frother cover from over the metal frothing arm,... Read full review »


Cheap Espresso

byxdavidpx Nov 6, 2007
7 Helpfuls 8 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Cheap, makes decent espresso
Cons Short frothing wand Easy to run out of frothing steam
Recommended it? Yes

I've had this steam espresso maker for a few years now and while I realize there are much better options out there I'm content making espressos and cappuccinos with this machine. Its biggest downfall is that due to its price its bound to be used by novices who might not understand some of the... Read full review »


Mr Coffee Cappuccino Maker Model 250

bybpereztab May 6, 2007
7 Helpfuls 8 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Heats up and makes espresso quick. Is inexpensive.
Cons Takes too long to make a cup of cappuccino.
Recommended it? No

I did not like this cappuccino maker and cannot recommend it because:
1- it will make espresso coffee but will run out of steam before you have a chance to froth the milk. You can refill the reservoir tank once it cools down and then froth the milk - by then your espresso is cold.
2- the... Read full review »


Mr. Coffee ECM20 gasket wear causes steam leakage that renders the machine useless

byjimgrannon Apr 5, 2007
5 Helpfuls 6 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Fast, easy to use, and saves me $3 for a latte or cappuccino.
Cons Control knob sticks, capacity small, gasket problem should be addressed.
Recommended it? No

When my wife got me an espresso maker for Christmas 2006 I thought I'd never use it but I use it every day and really enjoy my latte 2 or 3 times a day. I used to have the old fashioned, screw-together, 2 piece, stove-top Italian espresso maker but it didn't stream milk.

Unhappy with Mr. Coffee Steam Espresso/Cappuccino Maker

Pros If making espresso only, it does a decent job.
Cons It froths the milk, but it is just luke-warm.
Recommended it? No

I received the Mr. Coffee ECM20- 2 Steam Espresso and Cappuccino Maker for Christmas two years ago and this machine was a huge disappointment. It does have a good instructional manual included and it is super easy to clean. If this was just purchased for espresso only, then this would have been a... Read full review »

Recommended it? Yes

Living in a small town and having freshly roasted coffee available is an anomaly, I'm sure, but a true blessing for this aficionado. And finding the ECM20 Espresso Machine making perfect cappuccinos and lattes with so little effort, and costing so little money, is almost nirvana. Until the plastic... Read full review »

Pros Is good if you just want espresso
Cons Will not heat, steam or foam milk
Recommended it? No

This is a piece of junk, but I guess you get what you pay for, right?

This is the first espresso maker I have purchased myself, so I wanted to start inexpensive until I learned the art of creating a latte at home. Once I had/have that down, the intent is/was to move onto a more expensive... Read full review »

Pros Cute, cheap
Cons You'll spend more on replacement parts than the machine!
Recommended it? No

I don't write a lot of reviews, but after the trouble I've had with this model, I felt compelled to warn people. I had to exchange it once. After that, I had to mail order 3 decanters because they break if the wind blows, the plastic on the basket holder broke, so I had to buy that as well. If you... Read full review »

Pros The price is right! brews a drip similar to coffee houses.

First of all, I was a Barista in a very busy espresso cafe in a huge college town for 3 years. My point is... I know espresso and I have to say that for the price this machine does what it is supposed to do and nothing beyond that. I know all about getting a good head on espresso and I was...

Made Good coffee but the parts are of poor quality

Pros Makes good coffee and the machine looks nice on the kitchen counter.
Cons Good looking design lead to a common defect (see other reviews)
Recommended it? No

We bought this machine about 2 years ago after our 8yr old Krupps machine died. We bought it at Walmart and I think we only paid $29.99 so I thought it was realistic to get at least 4 yrs of service out of it since we only used it on weekends.

We were satisfied with the quality of the... Read full review »

The machine it self is OK, but the parts break very easily. The plastic foamer cover, the plastic keeping the handle on the carafe, AND the handle to the coffee grounds basket have all broken from normal use/washing within 8 mo.
