Krups XP4030 Espresso Machine

krupsxp4030.jpg

Krups has put out the new Krups XP4030 Espresso Machineto compete in the crowded pump driven basic espresso machine segment priced in the $150 range. Krups designed the unit to be very competitive with a strong feature set and a classic design. I spotted the XP4030 at the mall the other day and I have to say that its pretty sharp looking.

The Krups XP4030 comes with three portafilter inserts that will hold a single, double and an ESE espresso pod. This will give you some nice flexibility to make what you want. The unit has a 1200 watt Thermoblock heater and a 15 bar pump to crank out high quality espressos in short order. The 32-ounce water reservoir should keep you going for a while, cranking out about 15+ espressos before refilling. Krups calls their steam wand the Perfect Froth steam system to mix air and steam for foolproof frothing.

Remember, check out Amazon’s specials when you spend more that $125, you get $25 off at the checkout. This machine will qualify for this promotion and Free Shipping.

Just picked one up at Bed Bath & Beyond w/20% off coupon. I have only used the e.s.e. pods and the machine seems to strain a little with them but the coffee is excellent, and the machine is a trooper with a great price. the 2 other coffee inserts store under the water tank door which is very convenient and milk froths easily as well.

I am very pleased with the machine which for its price point is a great buy!

P.S. haven't slept yet ;-)
