the end of 1999, Capresso released a high-end model with the tight
body and clean lines of a luxury car."
"...After testing the Capresso and Cuisinart, and two other
models, one by Krups and one by DeLonghi, the winners and losers
separated like oil and water..."
"...Any positive attributes of these first three evaporated
as soon as I tried the Capresso CoffeeTEC."

having to wiggle it out of its slot. The water compartment is

it to the sink (no more pouring water all over your countertop)...
and it has an excellent milk frother, which turns milk into that
tight, silky cream you seem to find only at cafes. The machine
is solid, and all of its parts are well fitted. The thermal carafe
has a matte steel vacuum-sealed container that holds 10 cups of
coffee. It is short and fat, with a comfortable handle for pouring
the coffee and a wide mouth, which makes cleaning the interior
possible. And the coffee comes out at 186 degrees, just above

"You jump out of the shower at 7:00 a.m. 10 cups of piping
hot coffee are waiting in a sealed double stainless steel vacuum
carafe. Place your mug underneath the cappuccino spout and snap
in the cold milk container, turn the switch and hot frothed milk
is automatically dispersed into your mug, simply add coffee and
enjoy it at 7:01! Bravo!"
bought your CoffeeTEC approximately one month ago. We keep saying
that it's the worst thing we could have done since it makes it so
much harder to get out of the house in the morning (we sit around
drinking our coffee with frothed milk for way too long!) Anyway,
CoffeeTEC, well worth the price tag! It brews the best coffee we've
had at home, and the milk frothing/steaming feature is wonderful."
way to improve on perfection!"
just wanted to let you know that I purchased the CoffeeTEC a few
weeks ago and IT IS THE BEST COFFEE I HAVE EVER HAD!!! Well worth
$200.00!!! Way to go! Someone finally made a coffee maker worth
to let you know that the Capresso CoffeeTEC arrived and we think
it's wonderful. It looks great, it's well designed and makes tremendous
coffee. It did not take long to become Capresso CoffeeTEC converts."
wanted you to know that the Capresso CoffeeTEC coffee maker is definitely
top of the line. I am thrilled with it."
