Have you ever had a coffee maker (or some other kitchen appliance) that after a lot of use, needed a part replaced? It is so frustrating, especially when no one seems to carry the piece you need, and it's a tool that you use frequently! However, for anyone in this situation, I recently found a website that carries various parts from most of the major brands, including Krups coffee maker parts.
I was especially excited to see that this site also carries Capresso parts. I have a Capresso espresso machine that we get a lot of use out of. I am always making myself a mocha or some other coffee drink with this machine. Unfortunately, the carafe dropped once and although it didn't shatter, it did crack down the side. I have used it since, and it seems to work okay, but I am going to look into ordering the replacement soon. It will need done sometime anyways, and I might as well do it now while the parts are easy to find :) It's less than $16.00 and shipping is free, so it's a better deal than buying from the original company!
