Krups Espresso Machine XP420050 Review
As said earlier, this is a “no fuss” espresso maker that will make you a consistent coffee every time you use it. And that will be more often than before since the espresso and cappuccino drinks it produces are indeed very yummy.
The Krups Espresso Machine XP420050 with its precise tamp system compresses the coffee grounds perfectly so you have one less step to do and again, it does it the same way every time. Consistency. After making the coffee for you it is easy to remove the remaining ground coffee, also called coffee cake (but don’t even think about eating that cake). No mess there as with many other coffee makers. You can even use the cool coffee pods which come in different flavors and make even less mess.
The built-in 15 bar pump makes sure that you get a nice and rich crema on top of your espresso every time. This is important as you might know, have less pressure and your espresso wont taste so full and rich. This Krups machine has no problem creating the right amount of pressure and heat.
If you decide to heat some milk for a cappuccino or cafe latte you can use the multi-directional frothing nozzle, which makes it really simple to reach the milk-container you use. Multi-directional is just a word, but in reality it is another one of those ingenious German things that make your life easier. Have you ever struggled on another espresso machine to get the milk container under the frothing nozzle? Not with the Krups Espresso Machine XP420050, multi-directional is my new favorite
Of course, with all that German engineering, you can count on easy cleaning as well. You can remove the drip tray and the water tank so it is indeed simple to clean your espresso maker after use. And you will keep this machine clean since you want to showcase it in your kitchen. It has a simple but great design that will make your friends and visitors ask for coffee every time they see it. This is a great looking Krups espresso machine.
While there are others out there that are looking for espresso makers with more features, for me the simplicity and ease of use made me decide to buy the Krups Espresso Machine XP420050. And I am not the only one, many users say similar things about this machine. While its official list price is US$ 216.00 you can find it on Amazon for less than 200 bucks.
