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.

Good machine, but with some very troublesome faults.

Chris C, Amazon

  • Summary: Check out the top-rated review on Amazon.com for the most accurate summary of this product. An update, though, because Krups has since replaced their steamer attachment. Not sure if anyone will see this, but hang on to your receipt, because within a year or two of purchase, Krups will replace the "clip" steamer with one that screws on. It's something like $10 outside of that. The bad news is the new steamer might actually be worse than the old.

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.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Я точно не продавец, но об этой кофеварке уже знаю очень много. Во-первых, девочки продавцы нам ее демонстрировали очень подробно, много рассказывали и позволили сравнить с разными моделями. Когда заваривала первый раз, уже была уверена, что делаю все правильно.
  • Pros: Не знаю, чем недоволен предыдущий покупатель, у меня кофе получается горячий и очень вкусный. Варю Жокей по-восточному. Молочко взбивается исключительно, потом самую легкую пенку снимаю сверху ложечкой и шапочкой на кофе. Так нравится больше, чем наливать. Очень удобна в обслуживании. Легко очищать от кофе, контейнер от капелек, мыть и протирать - замечательный металл. Нравится больше, чем Делонги.
  • Cons: Кофе в две чашечки наливается неравномерно, правая чашечка наполняется медленнее, в результате кофе там более слабый. Может, это и хорошо, если члены семьи любят кофе разной крепости.
