Details: This machine brews espresso and then froths milk for cappuccinos and café lattés directly from a container of milk--no pitcher needed. Two filter holders accompany the machine, one for ground coffee (with filters for one or two cups) and one for one-cup coffee pods from companies such as Illy and Starbucks. (Eighteen Illy pods are included.) A frothing attachment fits onto the machine's steam nozzle and permits selecting either steamed milk or froth, with milk being drawn into the attachment through a flexible tube immersed in a container of milk. The attachment also has a setting so it can be rinsed out with hot water, and it disassembles for periodic cleaning and then is easily reassembled. An indicator light goes out when proper water temperatures have been reached for brewing or frothing/steaming. On the front of the machine is a selector for choosing brewing, frothing, or steaming, with the latter suitable not only for milk but also for hot chocolate, tea, and soup. On top of the machine is a warming tray for cups, and beneath the brewing head is a removable drip tray. The 37-ounce water tank can be lifted out for convenient filling. The machine is clad in matte-black plastic for easy cleanup, measures a compact 8-1/4 inches wide, 11 inches high, and 10 inches deep, and carries a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack Product Description Double-tall-half-caf-no-foamaccino?
