Krups is a manufacturer of household appliances of worldwide renown, and in the coffee sector, they are also a guarantee company. In addition to manufacturing capsule coffee machines for the Nespresso and Dolce Gusto brands, and also positioning itself as a reference in coffee grinders (examples), Krups markets its line of coffee machines.
The range of Krups automatic coffee machines is quite extensive and is mainly focused on the automatic espresso machine segment. Its flagship is the Krups Espresseria line, a model that started with the Krups Espresseria EA8108 and, with various variations and improvements, has continued to develop with the Krups Evidence EA893C40 and Krups Espresseria EA8150.
If we prefer a manual espresso machine, cheaper, we also have a great alternative in the Krups XP3440, made of stainless steel.
Below, we will leave a brief overview of the leading models, along with purchase links and full reviews on our website in case any reader needs to study them further. If you are going to buy a Krups automatic coffee maker, you’d better take a look at them.
Krups Manual Express Coffee Makers
There aren’t many of them, but they’re worth knowing:
Krups Calvi Steam & Pump XP3440
We continue with a review of this poker of manual espresso machines from Krups with the Steam & Pump, a coffee machine whose distinctive features are the milk vaporizer and the temperature control system. If you like to control all the details of making your coffee, this Steam & Pump will give you more satisfaction than the more conventional ones.
- Patented Krups "tamping system" for perfect espresso
- Universal filter holder: suitable for 1-2 cups
- 15 bar pump pressure
- Special steam nozzle for optimal milk foam
- Capacity water tank 1.1 l (removable)
Krups Opium XP3208
The cheapest of all. Krups gets on the trolley of low-cost armoured coffee machines, and launched in 2020 this model with the same essential features as the previous ones (steamer, cup warming tray, 1.5-litre tank) but without any artifice, worse finishes and at a much lower cost.
- 15-bar pump pressure for professional results
- Tailor every cup to your palette with adjustable manual settings
- Steam nozzle for indulgently frothy milk
- Choice of one or two-cup filter lets you control the strength
- Coffee tamper helps you seal the coffee before brewing for maximum flavour extraction
Krups Calvi Latte XP3458
The Krups Calvi Latte, as its name suggests, is an evolution of the Krups Calvi XP3440, which incorporates a much more complete milk emulsion system. Apart from the traditional steamer, it incorporates a sleeve capable of collecting the milk from the container in which it is stored and emulsifying it directly.
It is a very narrow machine, very practical and capable of fitting in anywhere, but also with a smaller tank than the rest of its range sisters (1.1 litres).
Another advanced function of this model is the electronic temperature control (PID), a detail that will undoubtedly be appreciated by the most demanding baristas. In short, the most advanced armoured coffee maker of the German brand.
Krups XP5620 Classic Pro Inox
The Krups XP5620 Classic Pro Inox is a coffee maker with very similar characteristics to the old Expert Pro Inox but with a stainless steel body. An upgrade or redesign of a legendary model, for those who do not mind paying a little more. It has electronic temperature control and, in general, features more adapted to the needs of demanding consumers, with a medium-high profile.
