Overpriced, underperforming


Grinds and then brews

Grinds only certain coffees well... this list is limited to Dunkin Donuts coffee. All other coffees require you to help the beans keep going into the grinder. ANY dark blend roast will not grind well. The cappuccino/steamer attachment is a joke at...

Great coffee, great service, iffy reliability


Although it hasn't been that reliable I give it 4 stars because I drink about 10 times the average coffee drinker )after 5 months the machine recorded 2300 coffee cycles) have to admit service was better than average and espresso is good (nice crema)

Makes great coffee, 4 settings - small espresso or strong espresso, 4 ounce coffee or double 4 once cycle (8 once). Auot wake and Sleep. Better than average service Courier picks it up and delivers it back to your home

Annoyed that it broke down twice. Leaking from the bottom. Sent in twice for what they call consierge service. 7-10 day turnaround on service

If you live in a cold place...


Krups support was very responsive. When sending the machine in for servicing the courier came the next day and repair was relatively prompt. If the weather is warm its unlikely that you'll have the problem I had. I give it 3 because the customer...

Makes a decent cup of coffee ; Convenient (much less messy than dealing with your own grinder) ; Small footprint (about the same as a plain espresso machine, but with a grinder included) ; Good customer service, very friendly and prompt with their...

Expensive ; Durability is questionable ; A known problem that requires fixing ; The glue that is used to hold the flowmeter on does not stand up to the cold. I found this out after sending the machine in for repair 3 times in the first month of...

Just like restaurant


Have for years had expensive pump machines, which are messy, and eventually give up the ghost, and never leave the foam on top or the espuma as it is called here in Miami. This makes a PERFECT espresso every time and is truly simple to operate.I would...

Excellent Espresso & Steamed Milk


I've had the machine for four weeks now and have been using it daily. After having manual pump-driven machines for 15 years, it sure is a treat to have an automatic machine. Build and component quality are very high. The user interface is simple to...

great product


Although this machine is a little noisy, it works like a dream. I've had it for a few weeks now, but always find it fun to use. It's intelligence is a real bonus if you are in a rush and forget to fill it up, it will tell you what you need to do. Set...

Everyday I'm thankful...


...that we bought this machine. We got it as an anniversary gift to ourselves. It is fantastic. Makes excellent coffee, cappucinos, and lattes; very easy to learn to use; and gives our home that great aroma that greets you when you walk into a coffee...

Excellent Espresso


The Krups XP7260 Espresso Machine is a great, solid machine. It brews and excellent cup of Espresso, but I will say it was a bit tough to master the foaming device at first. However with a little practice it is now easy to use. It is noisy, but I...

Easy to Use, Fast Brewing, Great Design

Maintenance nightmare! Defective due to grinder clogging issues.


I was in love with this machine for the first 18 mos. Then after a routine cleaning process, the entire machine had a melt down. Water leaked from the bottom, the grinder stopped, no espresso came out the spigots. This (of course) all happened after...
