From deciding what kind of drink you want to adjusting the steam pressure, almost everything on the Krups Barista EA9000 runs through its touch screen back-lit user interface.
There is no milk reservoir with the Krups Barista EA9000. You need to pour your own milk and the steam wand will come down from inside the machine and heat the milk up for you.
The bean hopper is on the backside of the Krups Barista EA9000 and users can put as much as a pound of beans into the hopper. You can also pour custom ground beans into the port in the middle of the top of the machine, but you need to choose that option on the right side of the machine by pressing the button with a picture of a scoop. From there, you can customize how you want your grinds to be brewed.
