Rated 5 out of 5 by Moxamama Amended Review
About 2 months ago, I wrote a review that told of my initial delight with this machine but my disappointment in the cracked carafe. I wrote to Mr. Coffee and without blinking an eye they sent me a new Cafe Latte Maker. It took about 3 weeks (more $ to Starbucks!) but when it arrived, I forbade anyone else in my house to touch the Latte Maker, and resolved to baby this thing forever. So it's been a couple of months, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this contraption. If the house catches on fire, I'll grab my spouse, my dog, and the Latte Maker. As I figure it, I've saved about $240 in the last 2 months alone (Starbucks and other similar places minus the cost of the coffee and milk.) I am tempted to buy another one of these to have it on standby should this one break, so I don't have to wait unduly for a replacement. I surely hope that Mr. Coffee has some replacement carafes in stock, just in case. But if it breaks, I'll depend on Mr. Coffee's outstanding service to help keep me stocked in Latte Machines. Thanks, guys. You are incredible!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maximillian Love this!
I bought one of these after tasting a latte at my in-laws. So far it's the best coffee maker I've owned. I've tried drip type, French Press, expensive cappuccino machines and an old-fashioned percolator looking for the perfect cup of coffee and it's been driving my wife nuts. It works great as intended but I've found the best result by brewing the coffee first and then frothing the milk separately with a little sugar added. That way I get a bit sweeter frothed milk and it stays separate from the coffee until I manually mix them at the end. It takes longer, but I think it tastes better. I wish it could make more than 2 servings at a time but that's only because my definition of a proper serving size is quite a bit more than what the coffee maker overlords have decreed. Still, I love the machine. Performing the various steps is good therapy in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bay Area Buyer Great Buy!
I bought the machine a month ago during the Christmas sale. I have been using it almost everyday! I use it to make latte or just to heat up soy milk. I always rinse the carafe after each use and soak with water. There is residual from milk in the bottom of the carafe that you will need to clean with a cloth, I normally clean it with just paper towel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by allpainted Machine is great--pitcher, not so much!
Have been using this machine for almost 2 years. Love the lattes and hot chocolate. We add an extra shot or two of espresso to the latte mix sometimes. The pitcher can almost break if you look at it wrong. This morning it broke on the side, latte pouring all over the counter and the floor. My first pot lasted 1 year and seemed to be made of heavier glass than the last 2. I am now needing my 4th pitcher--but it doesn't seem to be available. I think we are still financially better off than hitting the coffee shop every morning but these pitchers aren't cheap to replace and now aren't easy to find. So sad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EliseS Thick foam with soymilk
I tried 2 different brands of soymilk. Surprisingly, one of them gave me the desired thick velvety foam, that is Trader Joe's Organic Vanilla Soy Milk. I am loving my lattes! I saved up hundreds of dollars with this machine since I don't buy a $5-6 latte every morning. Strongly advise this machine. Follow instructions, though. There are sections of the products should not get any water. So wash carefully. Overall, awesome product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Olderwoman great for lattes, coffee & more!!
I love this machine for the lattes. It is not like the "big store" latte, but for the cost & convenience, it is great. First, you need to experiment to find how you like it best. I found these: I prefer 1/2 of the milk they suggest. If you use any creamer, it will not foam, so just add it to your cup. My way is to put milk & syrup in carafe, then set to heat & foam. Now, change to latte & redo. If you like less foam, 2nd time remove whisk. If you want JUST COFFEE, use regular coffee, remove whisk & set on latte! You do need to wipe bottom of pot after each use, but to CLEAN, add water to 2nd cup level, a small amount of liquid soap & set on heat & foam! Rinse thoroughly. If you pay $4.50 or more for a latte at the "big store", this machine pays for itself very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DombosDad Best Ever Latte
Well we experienced our very first Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte at our neighbor's house and yep we had to get the Mr. Coffee Cafe Latte machine as well, to enjoy the Best Ever Latte's that my wife and I have ever had. As a matter of fact as I write this I am enjoying a Latte at 1:48 in the afternoon. Remarkable machine at a very reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by becker BEST. CHRISTMAS. PRESENT. EVER.
how many times do you hear or see that (BEST. CHRISTMAS. PRESENT. EVER.) phrase (on facebook at that)? i am not the most creative gift giver - i would rather get an idea of what people would like - my daughter posted that on facebook with a video of her latte machine brewing - a lot of people asked her how she liked it, etc.
