Krups XP5240 Pump Espresso Machine with Precise Tamp


Krups has launched a new pump espresso machine that offers a new way to get better espresso through a simpler operation. In the past, you had to switch out inserts for ESE pods, Single shots or Double Shots; not anymore. The Precise Tamp system allows you to add what you like to the portafilter, and then as you lock it into the machine, a ratcheting system cranks the portafilter up to the right location, effectively making the machine itself the tamper.

While getting a good tamp itself is important, I think getting a foolproof system that offers ease of use is more important. I hear form people all the time that they loved the idea of an espresso machine, but that in this go-go time, the hassle and the mess is too much. With no switching of the inserts, and the better assurance of a better espresso, this system looks to be a decent idea.

  • Pump espresso machine with 1400-watt thermoblock heating system
  • Universal filter holder accommodates ground coffee, E.S.E. pods, and soft pods
  • Precise foolproof tamp system can be set for 1 or 2 cups at a time
  • Selector knob for brewing or frothing; mess-free cake-ejection system
  • Measures 12-3/5 by 10 by 14-2/5 inches

More information at Krups; a demo video is also available.
