More specifically, I'd like to know what people's opinions are on the Bialetti Mukka versus a machine with a milk steamer option (probably a Francis!Francis! when I can afford to get one).

I drink lattes, and prefer my caffeine drinks on the stronger, richer, and sweeter/not-overly bitter side. Which produces better crema? Are they idiot-proof? Are they both relatively easy to clean? Would you suggest one type of bean over another, depending on the maker?
