I love my new Choco Latte machine. It has all the features I was seeking -- thermal carafe, milk froth-o-matic and removable water tank.
This machine makes coffee quickly, and the steamer function is very easy to use. (Could it be any easier? Does this make it too easy?) You can steam chocolate milk, regular milk, syrup-flavored milk, any kind of milk you want.
The carafe is a great size, and really does keep your coffee warm for hours without any fear of leaving the heater on. Unlike some of the thermal carafes I've used in the past, this one has a large opening once you remove the lid, which makes it much easier to clean.
I highly recommend this machine.

This machine does not make lattes or cappuccinos. When I ordered it I had no idea how to make a latte. The manual that comes with it does not tell how to make lattes, just how to froth milk. I had to buy an espresso machine to make my lattes. The froth milk spout(steamer) doesn't work all the time. Most of the time it doesn't produce froth, just warm milk.
...it is an excellent coffeemaker. The coffee is very hot and stays hot a long time in the carafe.

We've made tasty, frothy hot chocolate. We didn't realize that the coffee holder is a thermos rather than a holder that sits on a heating element, but it works well.

This is a mediocre machine that makes steamed milk and coffee. However, it is advertised as a latte maker. It does not make latte's. Personally, I think it is false advertising.
A Traditional "Latte" requires a shot of espresso and unless you have an espresso machine you can not make Latte's with this product. I had to purchase an additional espresso machine to make Latte's with this product.
