Inspired by professionals and designed for connoisseurs, KRUPS products have been built with three key attributes in mind: Passion, Precision and Perfection. The KRUPS XP604050 Espresso Machine and Coffee Maker Combination is a 2 in 1 robust and sophisticated appliance with die cast aluminum and stainless steel housing. Designed in Switzerland, the XP604050 Espresso Machine and Coffee Maker Combination meets the highest standards of performance and quality. On the one side, it delivers intense espressos with crema thanks to the 19-bar high pressure pump and the thermoblock heating system and on the other side a full-bodied coffee. The espresso machine is compatible with ground coffee (1 or 2 cups) and all types of pods to give you a large choice of coffee varietals. Its powerful steam nozzle allows for unctuous cappuccinos and lattes as well as hot water for teas, infusions and more. For more convenience the espresso side enables you to pre-program 2 volumes of espresso very simply and features a large 1.5-liter/50-ounce frontal removable water tank, a removable drip tray and a heating cup grid to warm cups quickly and efficiently, maintaining the ideal temperature longer. The coffee side of the KRUPS XP604050 Espresso Machine and Coffee Maker Combination delivers up to 10-cup of coffee with a rich and complex taste and keeps it warm for 2 hours thanks to its warming plate. Because the first sip is significant to kick off the day, KRUPS has developed the pause and serve function which allows you to remove the carafe at any time during the brew cycle to serve an early cup. To ease the cleaning of the unit, the cone filter basket is removable. The XP604050 Pump Espresso Machine and Coffee Maker combination comes with a double sided tool spoon and tamper and 2 filter baskets. A large variety of hot drinks are thus available using a single machine: the KRUPS XP604050 Espresso Machine and Coffee Maker Combination.
