Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista ECMP1000 Overview

When I think of Mr. Coffee the first things that come to mind are cheap, low quality coffee makers.

With their Cafe Barista Espresso Machine, cheap still applies — but it isn’t totally low-quality.

Featuring settings for both single and double espresso shots and the ability to make espresso, cappuccino and latte beverages, the Cafe Barista is able to brew 6 different beverage sizes:

  • Espresso: 1.25 or 2.50 oz
  • Cappuccino: 6 or 10 oz
  • Latte: 12 or 15 oz

Plus, the built-in automatic frother takes the guesswork out of specialty beverages but allows you to manually froth if that’s your thing.

The only real drawback with the frother is it doesn’t quite get to the bottom of the frothing pitcher, consistently leaving you with an inch of wasted milk. Take care to clean the frother regularly, at least every few weeks, or it’ll stop performing.

The included 55 oz water reservoir is pretty large and compares favorably to other bargain espresso machines, which is exactly what the Cafe Barista ECMP1000 is.

Pros

  • Compatible with E.S.E. soft pods
  • Comes with tamper and frothing pitcher
  • Above average 55 oz water reservoir
  • Brews 1.5-15 oz beverages
  • Built-in automatic frother

Cons

  • Frother requires plenty of maintenance, needing cleaning at least every few weeks
  • Cappuccino and latte settings aren’t very different
  • Durability concerns
