Krups Espresseria Full Automatic Espresso Machine
The Krups Espresseria Full Automatic Espresso Machine is near-flawless in its design and rivals some of the best espresso machines out there. Krups is synonymous with quality and consistency, two of the most important factors that go into espresso machines. You’ll find the style of the Espresseria to be perfect for your modern-day kitchen as it has rounded edges and a burr grinder placed conveniently on top of the machine for easy automatic operation.
The Espresseria includes a large 1.8 liter water tank, a bean storage container with 275 grams of capacity, removable drip tray and removable cake container. These coffee and espresso machines are highly intuitive. Using the LCD display, you have immediate visual access to all the functions and can set your individualized preferences using the available turn knob and buttons. The Espresseria is essentially maintenance free since the excess water goes immediately into the drip tray, and the machine automatically rinses, cleans and de-scales on its own. Also, these espresso machines come with an innovative monoblock unit for superior heat transfer.
The Espresseria keeps in line with some of the best espresso machines in that it automatically cleans and de-scales itself for worry-free cleaning. The programs are highly perceptive so that they detect when the machine needs cleaning, which is a major advantage if you live in an area that has hard water. Like other espresso machines, the Espresseria has its own system that automatically integrates pressure, heating and brewing in one step.
This makes the Espresseria a great system for both espresso novices and experts.
With the Espresseria, you have to use whole beans and not coffee grounds. While this may not sound to be a disadvantage, the bean container is not removable, so you will have to use all the beans before adding new ones. Not being able to switch out coffee beans can be a nuisance, so if you like to swap the flavors of your coffee, be sure not to fill the bean container too high. Also, water filters need to be replaced every two to three months, the frothing attachments are a bit awkward to use and the machine can be noisy at times. Furthermore, these coffee and espresso machines are an investment on the front end and may be out of the price range for casual coffee drinkers.
For less, you can pick up the Vienna Plus Automatic Espresso Machine that includes a burr grinder. If you want to have more control over the grinds, this is a great machine to consider, and it receives consistently good espresso machine reviews. The more expensive Jura Capresso Automatic Coffee and Espresso Center may have a higher price tag, but with it you get an ultra-modern design, 18-bars of pump pressure and coffee that is made in 60 seconds. Espresso machine reviews are mixed due to the inconsistent frother wand and bean grinder that gets clogged.
The Krups Espresseria is an excellent machine that both espresso novices and connoisseurs will enjoy. With its automatic operation, you don’t have to do any more than drop in whole espresso beans of your choice and press the appropriate buttons. The machine is dependable and well-constructed and includes technically savvy parts like an LCD display screen, monoblock unit, automatic de-scaler and customized settings.
