Krups 5280 Stainless Steel Espresso Machine
A lot of consumers are looking for a machine that provides some authentic pump-extracted espresso, with a minimum amount of work to get high quality results. With a machine like the Krups EA5280, preparing a good espresso comes easy. We aren't talking about high-end customized extraction here, but we are talking about good espresso from your own ground coffee, in an easy to use package.
Krups EA5280 includes a feature to tamp the ground coffee, called Precise Tamp, that reportedly sets the right pressure on the grounds before extracting. This is less important in a consumer model than it is at your local barista's, but it adds to the confidence that your espressos are going to be great.
The Krups EA5280 also includes a portafilter that can use ESE espresso pods, an easy to use steam wand, and a 15-bar pump. Comes in a nice looking stainless steel.
UPDATE: Price is about half off right now at Amazon; $192 down from $399 list price.
