Espresso is not up to the standard

Seth, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: A few things impressed me and one serious issue turned me off. Pros - Very cool milk froth/steamer nozzle. This made it very easy to make some pretty good looking cappuccinos. The big CON- The expresso made was not up to my standard. The crema was lacking heavily compared to the machine I am used to (Mellita 14 bar machine) and this unit, though much nicer looking, was more expensive than the Mellita.

We love it!

Frank Holzberger, Amazon
8 March 2014
  • Summary: We love this machine - its the 3rd Krups espresso machine that we've purchased (in 20 years) and it's by far the best performing. The auto-tamp feature is great and the steamer works much better than the other 2 machines that we've had. Only wish that the water reservoir was a bit bigger.

FOR THE MONEY AND FEATURES FIVE STAR MACHINE!

Rob, Amazon
7 December 2013
  • Summary: GREAT MACHINE READ!I would like to say first that I had a very hard time choosing a espresso machine. This is the first espresso machine I have ever owned. For the money I dont know how you could expect anything more and I do not understand the bad reviews. I mean it is a three star machine compared to the high dollar machines. But for the price and features five stars. The only machines with all great reviews are $1500 +.

What happened to Krups?

Miguel Pendas, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: After having a Krups espresso machine for 20 years which worked great, it was time to replace, and I thought another Krups would be a good choice. I bought the XP5240. I was never able to froth the milk, just heat it up. And frankly, the crema from my old machine was way better. I finally took the frothing wand apart and found that a flimsy plastic part inside was broken. It's a huge hassle to get the thing back on as well because of those three little prongs.

My second Krups - preferred over DeLonghi

J. Webster, Amazon
14 October 2013
  • Summary: When my 4-year old Krups XP5220 gave out after it's daily use, I decided to look around. I did extensive reviewing and purchased a DeLonghi for about $175. After unpacking it, I simply put it back together and returned it because all the parts that looked like silver in the ad were plastic. I knew it wouldn't hold up to my daily use.

Terrible quality and no replacement part

Theresa Morley "happier student", Amazon
9 December 2012
  • Summary: Please don't buy this machine. After a few uses the steam frothing nozzle snapped off. It is held in place by three little plastic stems. I contacted the company and the replacement part was unavailable. They said they would ship it out as soon as it was available. I checked back every two weeks for FIVE MONTHS. PS - If anyone is looking for a job as a production manager I know a company that could use the help.

Dead out of the box; replacement came fast

Rakman, Amazon
19 November 2012
  • Summary: Just received this, and fresh out of the box it did not work, at all. Zero stars. Waiting for replacement from amazon. Will update to see if the replacement works. UPDATE: Amazon shipped a replacement very quickly, which arrived within 48 hours. The machine works fine.
