My family has been faithful to Mr. Coffee devices. This brand’s coffee makers have been our humble servants since the 1970s when my grandma bought one. My mum also bought one in the 90s and it has served us since. It’s 2016 and I felt like it was my duty to get a coffee machine of my own. Of course, I decided to get one made by Mr. Coffee.

After checking the whole offer of Mr. Coffee’s coffee makers, I decided to check out Mr. Coffee Café Barista ECMP1000 as well. This, to me seemed like the ideal choice. It looked nice, wasn’t too expensive, and those who owned were ready to swear that it made amazing espresso and cappuccino. They were right – I love everything about this product!

If you asked me if I would recommend Mr. Coffee ECMP1000 Cafe Barista Premium Espresso/Cappuccino System, I would say yes. It’s not only because the coffee it brews is breathtaking, but for a number of other reasons as well. Here are the things that make this product stand out!

Mr. Coffee ECMP1000 Cafe Barista is very easy to use

The coffee maker features a One Touch Control Panel, which allows you to choose the type of beverage you feel like drinking – espresso, latte or cappuccino. When it comes to type of coffee you can use, Mr. Coffee ECMP1000 supports K-Cups, as well as ground coffee. In fact, you can even use it to make tea, cocoa or a similar beverage. The brewer is great for milk frothing, so you can use it for all kinds of things including making oatmeal for breakfast.

You can use any kind of cup with this brewer

Problems with some coffee makers is that they you can’t use large mugs with them. However, that is not the case with Mr. Coffee ECMP1000 Cafe Barista. You can put a travel mug there just by removing the drip tray. But, be careful not to remove it if you use smaller mugs as this trey collects drips of coffee. Another thing that’s great is that its coffee cup tray is adjustable, so that you can fit any size of mug, from tiny ones to a large travel mug.

Mr. Coffee ECMP1000 comes with a bunch of additional features

You can make up to two cups at once with this coffee maker as it contains both a single-cup and double-cup filter. On top of that, the package includes a tamper and a measuring scoop as well. Finally, you will get a book of recipes. It contains 20 different recipes that you can make using the Mr. Coffee ECMP1000 brewer.

One of the fastest coffee brewers you can find

Not only is Mr. Coffee ECMP1000 coffee maker easy and fun to use, it is also very fast. In fact, it can bring the water to boil in a matter of seconds, not minutes. In fact, you can have your espresso ready in less than a minute. Of course, larger beverages will take more to make, but if you go with a K-Cup espresso or a cappuccino, you can expect it brewed in no time.
