Second, the machine is expensive, and repairs are difficult and expensive. We own several of these because we want one for our weekend place.
I just threw one away because it is obvious the gears stripped out in the burr grinder and I doubt that repairs are cost effective. I have one machine out to a New York service center for repairs, and the protocol there goes like this: ship the machine to them (expensive) where there is a $70 fee to look at the machine (paper checks are only accepted method of payment), send check, wait for assessment of cost of repair ($235 including return shipping, paper check only accepted method of payment), send check, wait. The machine has been gone for over a month. So the cost of repair is about half of the retail price of the machine, and I don't really know what shape the burr grinder is in since that is not being assessed. Cross fingers.
Apparently Krups has no dedicated, company-owned repair center. That is a problem.
The solution? I thought buying a "scratch and dent" for a backup would help, which I just did from Amazon. That was a disaster. After transporting it to the weekend place I hooked it up and it would never get past the machine-filling stage, and flooded the counter. Okay, lug it back to town, and box it up for UPS and wait for a refund. So if you want to keep count that is machine number four for us.
Now I admit these are trifles in the scheme of life, and it is hard to feel sorry for anyone who can afford all of these expensive machines. But the flip side is that if people pay out these sorts of dollars for machines the expectation is a long service life with minimum hassle.
So when buying this machine keep all of this in mind. And factor in that you will save substantial dollars by avoiding Starbucks and similar stores while enjoying better coffee.
Then make your best judgment.
As for me, I wish a company, including Krups, would build a machine that is better for the long haul. The coffee rates a 5 star, the machine a 2, so I gave it a 3 overall.
Update: We have been using the Krups Falcon for about 24 months now; it is considerably more expensive than the EA8250. I did buy the protection plan with this machine because of the history of the 8250 giving out. Surprise, the Falcon died; we sent it for repairs with Asurion's protection plan with a medium amount of hassle as to packaging and return. Asurion just refunded the full purchase price of the Falcon. My wife and I agree the 8250 makes better coffee than the Falcon, so I am going to buy another 8250 (with a protection plan) knowing full well that it will have to be replaced in 24-36 months.
So buy this, but be sure and get the protection plan, you will need it. I have upgraded this to 4 stars.
The machine performed great for 17 months. Then one day the grinder motor died. I spent a week trying to get in touch with Krups for support. Every number you call (I tried at least 3) gets you to the same office in NJ where the same unpleasant woman answered the phone. It was bizarre. She was unhelpful and just plain rude. I asked for a callback from a manager. In the meantime, I took my under-warranty machine to a local repair shop and they said the motor was shot and the repair would be $400. During this time, someone else from Krups (presumably a manager) called and left a voicemail. I called back and got the same rude woman. Does Krups only have one tentacled employee answering phones?
Frustrated, I then searched around internet forums and learned that apparently Krups is awful for service and support. I read many stories identical to my own, as well as many people (you can find these yourself if you poke around Google) reporting that they had shipped their machines to Krups into a black hole from which their machines never emerged - no phone calls, no machine back, nothing. So I give up. I'm going to do some research and buy a Delonghi or a Breville.
1. Use filtered water. You can get the filters that go into the machine itself, or you can just make sure you only fill it with a charcoal-filtering water pitcher. Either way, using filtered water will protect it from sediments in your tap water AND make the coffee taste better.
2. Follow the cleaning schedule. Order the cleaning tablets, and when it tells you to run a cleaning, RUN IT. Do not ignore this instruction.
3. Don't use actual espresso beans. The oils in them gum up the machine. I've actually found that medium-roast beans make the best coffee with this machine, but that's mostly my flavor preferences. I use Dunkin Donuts beans, if I'm being completely honest.
4. Be patient with it. While it is automatic, it isn't instantaneous. It's going to take some time to heat the water.
5. It's a good idea to scrub out the inside of the water reservoir and the container that collects the grounds. Maybe once every month or so on the water part, once every week on the grounds part.
I've never used the steamer/foamer, so I can't really speak to its functionality. I do know that if you take good care of this machine, it will take good care of you. I splurged on this, spent way more money than I should have, but it has been worth every penny. You get better coffee than from any single-cup brewer, and your only waste is some coffee grounds. I won't lie -- some mornings, the only reason I get out of bed is because I have this coffee to look forward to.
