From the Bean to the Cup at the Touch of a Button
Coffee: every professional Barista will tell you that preparing a good cup of coffee, a perfectly balanced cup of espreeso, or a creamy cappuccino is a real science. And it all starts with the coffee. Did you know that as soon as coffee beans are ground, they lose 40% of their flavors in the following minutes? In its constant quest for perfection, KRUPS decided to introduce its Fully Automatic EA82 Fully Automatic Machine. In just few seconds, you can enjoy a perfect cup of espresso from freshly ground beans. Bring your coffee shop at home and become your own Barista.
KRUPS EA82: Professional Cafe Quality at Home
Passion. Precision. Perfection. Built with these three attributes in mind, our KRUPS EA82 Fully Automatic Machine is one of the most compact units on the market. Designed and Manufactured in France where every single unit is thoroughly tested, KRUPS is providing its best-in-class products to the most demanding consumers. From coffee amateurs to afficionados, the KRUPS EA82 will deliver perfectly balanced cups of espresso thanks to its unique thermoblock system. Because the art of coffee is so difficult to master, KRUPS spent several years observing professional baristas trying to understand their everyday gestures. They then worked to reproduce these gestures at home with only one machine. With its 15 bar pump, hydraulic automated tamping system, and metalic burr grinder, the KRUPS EA82 will enable everyone to prepare perfect shots of espresso. Enjoy a hot cup from the very first brew and prepare an array of different recipes thanks to the intuitive LCD Screen that will guide you through every step of the process.
Some Tips and Recommendations
To make sure your experience with KRUPS fully automatic is the most enjoyable, KRUPS recommends using medium roast beans such as American Roasts, City Roasts, Full City Roasts or Vienna Roasts for the darker ones. Even if heavily used in coffee shops and widely commercialized in the U.S., darker roasts such as French Roasts or Italian roasts would not produce a perfectly balanced taste: the acidity of the coffee will be very diminished and little, if any, of the inherent flavors of the coffee will remain. This is similar to eating "overcooked" food.
Keeping Coffee Fresh
With its large sealed coffee bean hopper, the KRUPS EA82 will make sure to keep your beans fresh from the very first moment to the minute the last bean is ground.
KRUPS EA82 is equipped with a metallical conical grinder that ensures ground coffee will always be consistent in terms of size. In addition, grind coffee size will be adaptable manually. KRUPS recommends the finer setting for the espresso-based preparations and the coarser setting for the coffee. It is then up to your preference.
Unique Patented System
For a first cup from the very first cup, KRUPS has developped its unique patented thermoblock system. Not only this complex technology will help the machine preheats faster, but it will also guarantee a perfect tamping, a perfect temperature and time management for extraction and a hot cup each and every time.
Intuitive and Convenient
By putting consumers first, KRUPS has understood the importance of making a fully automatic machine easy to understand. Thanks to its LCD screen and ergonomic knob, simply navigate through the menu and choose your recipe, number of cups, and much more.

Top Customer Reviews
The advantages of this Krups machine are that: 1) it's the most compact machine, 2) it's very simple to operate 3) it has the lowest cost of the different super automatic brands (as of 10-26-2011), 4) and it can use oily beans unlike the other different brands of machines. 5) Also, it runs the longest between cleaning cycles (360 cycles) compared to the other brands. The resulting coffee is, of course, rich and smooth and full of flavor. That being said, it is important to note that coffee flavor seems to be more related to the quality/freshness of coffee beans used rather than the machine itself.
The disadvantages of this Krups machine are its high cost (relative to my cheap coffee machines before) and no bypass doser. But both of these disadvantages are minimal - especially when you compare the Krups cost to the other super automatic espresso machines. On the other hand, a bypass doser is important for that quick decaf, one would want to make for late night after dinner.
Bottom line is: I'd give this device 4.5 stars since it does not have the bypass doser. But if you want an easy to use, minimal maintenance, one-touch espresso machine, that is compact and costs the least of the super automatics then I think this Krups is the machine you want to invest in.
I like a big strong cup of coffee in the morning, and in the afternoon will often go for a cappuccino. I'm a fan of Starbucks and usually get a quad-shot Americano, about 3/4 filled with water (I like it industrial strength). But I often work at home and am on the phone in meetings all morning, and heading out for coffee usually doesn't fit my schedule. I had taken to Starbucks Via brand of instant coffee. Its not great, but good enough (certainly better than any other instant coffee I've had). I decided that for Christmas this year I wanted an automatic coffee maker. I was going to get one of the pod-based units and began looking at those. I almost bought the Starbucks Verismo, but thankfully I did a taste test of the Verismo Latte. It was worse than awful. So after going back and forth on it for a while, I decided not to settle for coffee pods. I did a ton of research and Santa finally sprung for the Krups.
My company has expensive automatic espresso machines in their offices, and those machines are amazing (but my company puts awful coffee in them for some reason). Comparing this Krups to those machines you will find it a bit lacking. But for what I really needed, it's right on the money.
I've only had it for a day, and don't have any major gripes. Or any experience with the longevity. But it gets my strong morning coffee just right. I played around with a couple different options to find what I like best. If I'm in a hurry, I'll have it pour the standard long coffee. With a fine grind selected this gives me a good strong 8oz of coffee. It has a good taste, but if I want it a tad stronger, I'll add 2 one-ounce strong espresso shots to that. This gives me 10oz that is identical to my quad americano at Starbucks from what I can tell. The afternoon cappuccino hits the spot too. Maybe not quite as good as Starbucks, but I think thats due to the milk I have on hand. I've ordered a few pounds of beans from artisan roasters, looking forward to trying those in the Krups.
I was going to order the black Krups, but then I noticed this red one being sold by Amazon. Its actually a bit more expensive, but I really don't like purchasing from other vendors on Amazon. I'm glad I did- the red isn't really a fire-engine red its more of an auburn. It looks fantastic in my kitchen.
Overall I'm very happy with my early Christmas gift.
There are some quirks with this machine like stopping in the middle of a brewing process to tell you it is out of water, but once you get used to checking water and coffee levels before pressing the brewing button it stops being an issue.
We had this machine for about a month and are greatly enjoying it several time a day. I followed other reviewer's advise and purchased Lavazza Super Crema at Amazon, which makes a much better cup of coffee than, say, Starbucks' House blend.
Highly recommend the machine, especially at Amazon's price. For some reason the red version (which I've got) is noticeably cheaper, while looking really nice. Only the front part is red, and the color is very rich, exactly as shown in the picture.
