This is our UK review of the popular Krups Evidence EA893840 Bean to Cup Coffee Machine. It is worth pointing out at this early stage that this is an expensive machine, from this high end German brand.
Overall buyers have rated this one highly with an overall 88% buyer satisfaction rating. It is an elegant espresso machine that has 15 one touch coffee drink options.
The one thing that makes this machine different to many other bean to cup machines, is that this one does give you a variety of interesting options, and a wide range of coffee drinks.
According to the many UK buyers this one is relatively easy to use, and that is always a good thing. It just means you don't have to read through a thick instruction book to be able to get started.
In our opinion the design is box like and quite large, so this wouldn't be the best choice for anyone with a small kitchen. It takes up enough space so just be aware of that.
The design also lends itself towards more modern or contemporary kitchen, and we believe that this one would look a bit out of place, in a rustic or country style kitchen.
This would be a great choice of a machine if you are someone who likes to "experiment" or try out the various elements that go into making a great tasting coffee.
This machine allows you to vary just about anything you like ranging from the grind of beans you like, to the volume of water delivered or the amount of milk added to your exact preference.
