Quick and easy

Chris "cycloney", Amazon
11 August 2010
  • Summary: 4.5 stars. It does not generate much crema but the taste is great and it heats up very quickly, makes the expresso and then provides plenty of steam for the milk. No problems with the steamer nozzel. Very neat how the used coffee grounds are ejected from the holder. I have had lots of expresso machines. For ease of use, this is the best one so far.

Steamer is dodgy, but espresso is great --- IF you make double shots.

Jason B. LeBrun "urban nerd", Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this machine for about two months, now. It makes great espresso, with a nice thick crema. People complaining about crema are often not using the proper beans, or aren't grinding them immediately before making the espresso. It makes a huge difference. The auto-tamp filter basket is neat, although I've found that it really only works for double shots.

This Ones a Keeper

E. Kirchner-Dean "Teach the Children Well", Amazon

  • Summary: Update August 15, 2013 Good product but what is causing the huge price increase? We have to replace ours about every 12 months due to various problems with leakage this time around the frother. Last year at this time I paid $152 for this machine. Price increase is unjustified. We tried a Breville before this Krups machine. We were looking to replace a 20 year old Krups steam driven machine which we also loved.

Good Machine

  • Summary: I have owned the machine for a couple of months now and I use it every day. No complaints so far. The machine has a nice weight to it. The precision tamp is a great new feature. I also like the new "eject" button that pushes out the used espresso in one lump -- no more slamming the little espresso basket on the counter or digging the used espresso out with a spoon.

  • Summary: Absolutely the best quality Coffey to drink. Honestly the best taste. Of corse you need to splash the machine many time first day. One star down , after one year got broken , just after warranty :-( . Then we bought ,,gaggia,, from Argos with extra warranty 4 years. What is almost same taste.

Enjoy this machine...very very carefully.

K. Schuller "KPS", Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using this machine for about 5 months and am generally happy. I've not encountered a machine in this price range that can match its ability to make excellent coffee - lovely creme. But it also requires that you be careful and methodical about its use, because otherwise the results can be messy (or worse). A few hints; * After cleaning the tip of the frothing wand, pull the part with the claws all the way down, and then re-attach. That way it re-attaches firmly.

Good product

  • Summary: easy to use, easy to clean, had one for two years that was brilliant befor the pump broke down. Bought another recently and it worked only intermittently so I've returned it but wish I could buy them locally. They seem to be tough to find.

Krups XP5240 Precise Tamp Pump Espresso Machine

MikeW, Amazon
17 April 2012
  • Summary: I bought this product as a replacement for the earlier model which I had managed to break during cleaning. I like th self tamp system as it does away with the need to keep changing filters and it makes it a lot easier to use. My other model leaked due to the drip tray not being emptied regularly.

Good but not perfect

JRob119, Amazon
15 November 2011
  • Summary: Easy to use, excellent espresso produced. The depth of the filter and the self-tamp and eject mechanism, greatly reduce the amount of coffee grinds wasted and left around the worktop. The frothing wand is a clear weak point, the wand originally shipped with the machine had to be replaced as it was faulty, like other reviews have mentioned. Excellent customer service by Krups sent out a replacement straight away but this should not have been necessary.
