Krups II Caffe Duomo Coffee/Espresso Maker

Back in 2004, my husband decided he wanted an espresso machine. We looked at lots of different ones–it was difficult to chose as there were so many on the market. One of the things I was concerned about was the space it would take up on my kitchen counter. We live fulltime in an RV, so there is not much space. When we saw the Krups Il Caffe Duomo Machine, it was a quickly decided that it was the one. With an espresso maker on one side, and a regular coffee pot on the other, it would only take up 14 inches of space, and have a dual function. But, the price of it was $99.99! That was a lot of money to pay for a coffee maker, I don’t care if it DID make espresso. Our daughter decided to give it to us as our Mother’s Day/Father’s Day combined gift that year.

This machine has been worth every penny she paid for it. It produces a double espresso in less than 3 minutes, as well as making a 10 cup pot of drip brewed coffee. You can use both sides at the same time. It is lightweight, weighing in at 6.1 pounds, which is another concern for RV’ers. We have been very pleased with our Krups II Caffee Duomo machine. While this particular model is no longer made, Krups does have a similar machine in their product lineup, still priced at $99.99.

    It’s great that this machine can multitask, two sides that can make coffee, espresso or any other hot beverage is a plus. Also it seems to be sleek not taking up much counter space is another plus in my book. The price tag is a bit steep but worth it in the long run.

    I bought one of these back in 2004, as well. I sold it to a family member in a yard sale when I really needed some cash. She still uses it to this day!
