Krups EA82 - SuperAuto Espresso Machine in Sheep's Clothing?


KrupsEA82Espresso.jpg

Superautomatics do just about everything for you; grind, tamp, extract, steam the milk and more. For that, they tend to cost a lot. The Krups EA82 is close, and gets the espresso end automated so you can take advantage of great whole bean coffee, and get the freshest cup of espresso on the block. What it won't do is automatically steam your milk right into your cup for you in the way a typical super automatic would. Sorry, you'll have to use the steam wand to do that.

The Krups EA82 holds a few day's worth of whole beans in the hopper (seals to keep beans fresher), grinds with its burr grinder, and extracts via their thermoblock heater and 15-bar pump. The heat time is fairly short, and the LCD screen gives you a quick and easy path to what's brewing: anything from an espresso to a taller coffee, it brews up to about 8 ounces.

The used espresso cake or puck gets ejected into a bin which will hold about 14 pucks. The 60-ounce reservoir should keep you going for a while. Pretty easy to maintain overall.

On sale now at a pretty good discount off the $1,200 list price; coming in at around $740 at this writing. Available in Black and Red.

Finally got one. In a word - AWESOME! I'm no coffee conosouier but I like a good cup-o-joe in the morning and this machine does a great job at it. It has good, easy to use features. The milk steamer is a great addition. It's a nice change from adding cold creamer to hot coffee and getting barely warm coffee. Now I can get the latte experience without the starbucks pricing. And the fresh ground coffee seems to be much better than pre-made single serve pods.

If you can catch this unit on sale buy it. It's worth it.
