Reviewed in the United States on September 16, 2018
My Darling Bride and I lived in Italy for two years (I know, rough life) and really became connoisseurs of fine café. While the K-Cafe is not "real" espresso, it's a phenomenal substitute.

The frother is astonishing! I'm still not entirely sure how that little booger works: but within a minute, half & half in a room temperature frothing mug is the consistency of shaving cream. Just fill it to the appropriate line, put the lid on and hit the button. Done. Start that, get to the coffee side and everything will be done at about the same time.

There's a setting for Coffee or Latte/Capo. By selecting the Latte/Capo button, the machine automatically selects "STRONG" and "SHOT". It knows what you want and sets it up for you. For cappuccino, I use two shots of Black Rifle AK Espresso or their Death Punch. And for a Keurig, this is as close to the real deal as you're going to get without an authentic, steam-injected machine. And I might be awake for three days!

For regular coffee, you will want to experiment with the various sizes and strengths to get the perfect cup for YOU. The Darling Bride fancies two pods of French Roast, 8 ounces each, for her favorite morning jump start. I'm not a big coffee fan anymore (I sort of coffeed out in the Navy), but when I want a good hearty espresso or cappuccino, it doesn't get much better - or easier - than this. We're glad we retired our old Keurig and got this, and we highly recommend it without reservation!
