.... when I happened upon the Krups Espremio mismarked at a local retailer .... I couldn't resist trying it.
The first 3 cups were no better than coffee. I later realized that was because I was using basic grocery store brand coffee. Once I tried using genuine, properly ground espresso beans, Starbucks had met their match. If you purchase coffee beans from Starbucks, they will ground them for you at no charge, as well. The Starbucks brand is a bit bitter in my opinion, so I am eager to branch out to other brands of espresso.
As for the Krups Espremio itself... I'm happy with it. It doesn't leak. It is easy to keep clean. It heats quickly. The frother is great. It makes a nice head of crema.
HOWEVER, as you'll already know, it only makes one single serving at a time. It does complicate making a double latte, but I've made four singles in a decent amount of time.
.... BUT REMEMBER TO USE THE RIGHT COFFEE.
Rather than paying to ship the unit to Krups myself---clearly, the company cannot afford to pay shipping on the thousands of these cheaply made units---I hauled the Krups FNP112-42 down to my workshop and found that the hose to the steamer had detached.
Well, fixing that problem did not render the FNP112-42 usable, for now it simply exhaled steam in great plumes like a bull in a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Cleaning the unit per the directions from Krups did nothing whatsoever. Nor did shaking it robustly or inserting various instruments into the nonworking nozzles serve any purpose, but at least I felt a bit better.
Turns out the only thing getting steamed was me. . .
I'm going to buy a good espresso maker this year for Christmas and I can promise you that it will not have the word Krups emblazoned on it.
My experience with the Krups Service System was so unsatisfactory that I will not try to have my current machine repaired, despite time remaining on the warranty.
When it worked, it produced great espresso and foamed milk rather nicely.
My advice: Spend a little extra and buy a better machine. (Please note that people with bad experiences are more likely to write reviews than are happy customers. Your experience may differ from mine.)
Very easy to set up, operate and clean. It has a built-in pump (like the big machines that cost a lot more) which makes high quality espresso cream. It easily switches to make delicious foam or steamed milk for machiatto, capuccinos, or lattes, and the waiting time for the machine to heat up is almost nil. You do have to make the espresso one cup at a time, though, as the filter and coffee holder are only for single-shots. Other than that, this machine has allowed me to enjoy my own blend of espresso coffee at home, whenever I like, and with quality equal or superior to restaurant or coffee shop espressos. You will be pleased!
