Summary: Excellent machine, I use it almost every other day and it has been working excellent for almost 4 years now. The only issue I have is that sometimes there can be residual coffee left in the ground coffee shaft and it becomes moldy due to the moisture that rises from the brewer.
Summary: I have had my Krups XP9000 for 3 years and have made thousands of cups of coffee, espresso, and cappacino drinks without even 1 problem. I do the cleaning when prompted and fill with water and beans when prompted. That's it! The quality of the drinks is exceptional- as is the product.
Summary: We have owned the XP9000 for 15 months. My wife was a Barista in her student days and likes a very strong cappuccino, she initially gave it (at its best) 4 / 5 for coffees and 3.5 / 5 for cappuccinos.
3 1/2 years 1st rate machine... sadly the krups after sales is poor.

Summary: As per title, spent 3 1/2 years with my 9000, used daily, sometimes more. Has been great until now, it's developed a problem with one of the connectors near the boiler, essentially the plastic has become brittle and cracked. I'm not going to gripe over the breakage.
Summary: The design found in this unit would be pretty appalling in a unit half this price, but for such an expensive unit it's unforgivable. It has an unmistakable flimsiness, minimal reliability and you'll be lucky to get much more than the warranty period of two years out of it.
Finally, a Superautomtic Espresso machine done right.

Summary: After purchasing increasingly more expensive (and increasingly more disappointing) Saecos in search of a machine that is not more annoying than useful, I stumbled upon the XP9000 during my last research journey.
Summary: I just got my machine today and decided to stay up to write this review since I drank so many cups of espresso. I got this machine when Amazon had it on their Lightning Deals and decided to take a chance since it was such a good deal. The unit arrived in perfect condition and well packaged.
Summary: I have had this Krups XP9000 for about 18 months. Up until now it made me very happy. The espresso is the very best. Please note I absolutely hate the taste of the espresso at Starbarks and most coffee other coffee shops. The machine is easy to use.
Summary: After my last super auto, a Saeco, failed for the umpteenth time I purchased the XP9000 in July of 09. Over time it has become accepted but... For a machine the size of this one larger reservoirs, water, bean, and drip tray / puck bin might have been considered.
Summary: The machine made decent coffee for about 2 years. After a certain period Krups espresso machines require mandatory service and will stop working. I sent my working machine to Krups which had technically nothing wrong with it to service center in Downers Grove, Illinois.
