Summary: I love coffee! I want to put extra bold espresso in my coffee @ home, too!! It is easyer to set and clean than others, and I can make tasty espresso as coffee shope. I love this espresso maker! Great buy! there is only ONE thing I would like to say, it is little noisy when I turn on the machine.
Summary: Great little machine. Brews a great espresso, the frother works well too and is easy easy to clean. It takes time to brew a good espresso, this machine does not take an excessive amount. I drink an espresso every day before work, this brewer will serve me well for years I hope.
Don't buy this unless you don't have much cash and really need espresso li

Summary: I bought the Krups xp4030 as a replacement for a much more expensive unit that failed. That being said this Krups is not even a fair espresso maker and the frother do not make any foam but I can have my morning espresso albeit a less than desirable one.
Summary: We have had one of these at our fire station for about 2 years now. It gets used quite often and we have not had any problems. I was sceptical when we first purchased it, thinking a bunch of nuckle-head firefighters would tear the thing up within a few months, but it still works great!
Summary: This is the second time I purchased the same kind of esp. machine. (Krups!) The previous one lasted for 2 years... (I have made 3-6 cappuccinos daily, so, I used it a lot.)In the meantime I bought a Roma Esp. Machine that I had to send back to the store..
