Consumer review (

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.


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

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

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)

Excellent espresso from a solid, if quirky, low-end machine.


I bought this machine refurbished at Burlington Coat Factory. They now have refurb xp 4030s for $20, and I'm going to pick one of those up just for the spare parts. I have been tinkering with espresso machines for the past 8 years or so, and have been...

Easy to use, makes great espresso every time! The pump and water heater system work quickly, I can make several shots back to back and the machine seems happy to keep up with me

Price for new machines is too high, maybe some quality issues (based on reviews I've seen elsewhere), comes with pressurized filter baskets. Programmable feature is probably helpful, but I find the water volume to be inconsistent. The drip tray is a...

Good if you dont care, or dont know what you're doing, but serious buyers should drop a bit more cash for a real machine.


The machine is a low end consumer model designed for the anybody, that i s, the anybody who has no idea what real espresso tastes like. the machine uses pressurized baskets and a not too easily modified frothing attachment that make the system perfect...

Easy to use, let me break into the espresso world without breaking into my bank account. The machine was pretty capable once some basic mods were made. Big heavy portafilter

Plastic parts, pressurized filter baskets, thermoblock, the steam wand is practically garbage, hard to find replacement gaskets, never managed to remove the dispersion screen for a full cleaning, small water reservoir, easily choked
