This machine has saved my life many a morning. It's a Krups XP1500; more specifically: a coffee & espresso machine. It makes coffee, espresso, and steams milk. It also comes with its own coffee scoop thing, and the switch on the front is a perfect example of simplicity (it only goes three ways: espresso to the left, coffee to the right, and off in the center). The best part is that it was only about $100. Everything effortlessly clicks into place, too, with a very solid and satisfying sound (think of the sound a BMW car door makes when you shut it). Brilliant.
