Krups XP4030 vs. Krups XP4050

A few people have asked about the differences between the Krups XP4030 vs. the Krups 4050 espresso machines. While they may look similar, they are different enough to take pause and look at the features that separate these machines. The Krups XP4030 is a pump-driven espresso machine with a 15 bar pump that goes through a 1200 watt thermoblock heater to a portafilter with one of three filter inserts that are included: single, double and ESE espresso pod insert. The machine can easily steam with the turn of a knob, and has a 32 ounce reservoir. (See our post on the Krups XP4030)

The Krups XP4050 builds on the sound features of the Krups XP4030, by adding two specific items that are worth noting. The first is programability. You can program the buttons on the front panel to give you a specific cup size and corresponding espresso strength. The unit also has the ability for you to add a draw tube for the frother. It allows you to drop a tube into a container of milk, and automatically draw the milk up, and froth it right into your cup.

I am thinking about oppening a cafe, what espresso machines would you recommend? Expect high volume and need a machine that can produce 50+ shots an hour.

Your knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Jamie.
