Consumer review by:

not well designed

 

I only drink espresso (never American coffee) and have tried many machines over the years. This was the worst - an overdesigned behemoth.

none

I read the directions carefully but it did not work out of the box, sputtered and made lots of noise. Returned it

KRUPS XP4000 Pump Espresso Machine Black

 

Works very well, makes great espresso. Very happy with it

Nozzle tip on the milk foamer falls of too easily. Manual needs work

Consumer review by:

Great Expresso

 

I got this for my office and have been a very happy camper ever since. This machine does what it needs to do, it is a great expresso maker for the novice barista. Get a good grinder and you will start to enjoy a fantastic cup of expresso in no time.

Price! For a buck 50 this little machine delivers the goods. It produces GREAT expresso with a thick rich crema that rivals my Rancilio. Easy to use, great coffee, awesome price. Enough said

Noisy!

Good machine

 

Ok if you want to get technical, making an espresso shot should take around 30 sec. but this machine only takes 18, I haven't noticed a difference in taste (compared to starbucks). It does come with a plastic press instead of a sturdy metal one, but...

As far as making espresso it does what its suppose to do. Very sturdy. Nice removable tip for the wand makes cleaning up easier. Easy to empty drain and tank. I also like the pre-measured inserts to help with getting the right amount

Sprays sometimes. Loud. Warming tray takes a long time to warm up. Sometimes if the tank isn't pressed down good enough it will burn the beans (the users fault)

Krups Pump Espresso Machine

 

This model is a refurbished one (90 day warranty) so I it's possible the "new" ones are great! The frother works wonderfully. However, I could make stronger coffee using a regular coffee maker. The water does not get hot enough (even after warming -...
