Also, where are the replacement tablets, filters and cleaning fluid available?

We offer the Krups cleaning tablets, but not their water filters or their branded milk cleaning liquid. I do not have a suggestion for the water filter, but for another option for that cleaning liquid, try RInza. I have included a link for the Krups Cleaning Tablets and the Rinza below:

I'm seeing different dimensions for the EA9000 everywhere. Is the length truly 15 inches? Elsewhere I've seen EA9000 up to L 23 inches but counter space is a commodity for me. Jan 12, 2014

I call her Hel after Fritz Lang's MetropolisReview by crema
Price Value Quality
Quality? It took some doing to find Hel's custom setting tricks. To get a fine grind, heat and strength, I had to program my custom drinks. Hel has a lot of categories and room for 64 drinks (8 under 8 headings) in her "brain." One-touch welcome screen settings were fine for coffee with or without steamed milk and a weak Starbucksy capp or latte, but the best drinks are a combo of custom drink settings where one can adjust the grind, water ounces and temperature. Then, a custom cappuccino plus a custom espresso will achieve the double longo latte trick among other fascinating drinks.
Heat? After the custom milk preheat and froth it's lofty and hot! Hel is hot and I'm not even near the highest setting.
Grinder? The pulls are a little bitter/astringent and new nuances are detectable (good and bad). The character of the beans that are selected for a different semi-auto with a deeper filter cup would show up. I'll need to play with my blend. Overall, I was concerned about the built in grinder, but a grounds check proves it's powdered sand fine. I just wish it would tamp more grounds into a pull. I have to study the manual and get tricksy, but I'm 90% into caffeinated nirvana (and totally wired - apologies in advance).
Ease? Hel interrupts me a little, like, "Hey, refill Hel's water tank," and, "Hel's ground bin should be emptied," and "Hel is heating up/doing maintenance/cleaning the steam nozzle." Her control panel is resistive rather than adaptive touch screen. Frankly, that's good because you'd want selections to be deliberate. Mistakes are expensive - bean-wise.
Clean? Hel cleans the bejeezus out of herself and I don't have to do anything but refill the water tank, dump the rinse tray and used grounds bin occasionally. It's slightly irritating that she cleans during my custom multi selection in one glass stilo. I wish she'd wait for me to say "now." One should read the manual to adjust Hel's cleaning and maintenance behavior (a little). Be prepared, there will be replacements of water filters and cleaning fluid and a deep clean of that nozzle protocol eventually.
Convenience? Hel is the Bentley of Mercedes in convenience. Milk is measured by custom preference, right into your cup straight from refrigerator, so it's a personal user experience from fat % to nut milks and flavored syrups. She holds 1/2 pound of whole beans and there's a little bypass cup for decaf or other grounds (flavored and other gross stuff). Oddly, she's so super-auto that it's maddening sometimes - just like a woman. You'll wish you could adjust more yourself (well I do anyway a 1/4 ounce here or there, larger clearance for ginormous "to go" travel cups instead of hot on demand smaller ones, frothing nozzle rinsing interrupt). But, she'll heat your cups topside, has her own built-in light for dark mornings, an auto timer, auto off, and writes "hello" - hello Hel!
Noise level? Hel is rumbly and whirry, not quieter but more tolerable than my stand alone grinder and semi auto steam, hiss and whine. Those both frightened my kitty Lily after piquing her interest.
Footprint? Small considering the scope of performance. 15L x 11.5W x 14H with some clearance required for bean hopper lid - let's say 5.75 inches of upswing. One major advantage of Hel to other autos is not having those ugly, unsanitary milk bins to the side that take up coveted counter space and break your heart like a relative in ICU with life assistance tubes. Yeah, just like that, but more latte than loved one.
Time? It takes less time to make a picky person's "latte" with Hel than basically every other machine I've tried. She's fast as a fat panther just waking up. Don't ask how I know that.
Price? Geez. Ridonkulous, but she'll earn her keep eventually. The best deal going right now is here at Seattle Coffee Gear with superb customer service and shipping. Worth it? Too soon to tell in my personal Metropolis. I need different beans, now and tweaks, then maybe.
