This Krups 4 Cup Coffee Maker Gives 10 Cups of Coffee!
This Krups dual purpose machine efficiently combines a 10 cup coffee maker and a 4 cup espresso machine, allowing it to satisfy all your coffee needs as a single and compact unit.
It has separate water tanks for the coffee maker and espresso machine, and can brew both coffee and espresso simultaneously.
This Krups 4 cup coffee maker has all the features that make it both convenient and easy to use. It boasts a timer and programmable function, allowing you to wake up to a freshly brewed pot of coffee. It brews coffee into a 50 ounce glass carafe, and keeps it at the optimal serving temperature with a warming plate.
It also has a convenient pause-and-serve function that allows you to pour a cup before it has finished brewing.
Removing the carafe from the warming plate pauses the brewing process, and resumes once you return the carafe. As a safety feature, the coffee maker automatically shuts off two hours after brewing.
Brewing a pot of coffee follows tradition. Simply insert a filter into the filter basket, fill it up with coffee grounds, fill up the water tank, and press the brew button.
Surprisingly, the Krups 4 cup espresso machine performs adequately. With it, you can make great cups of espresso, lattes, and cappuccinos.
Not with this machine. It can surprisingly create an abundant amount of froth.
Similarly, making espresso also follows tradition, and requires some home barista skills with tamping and dosing.
Nevertheless, this makes this machine an affordable choice for those who want to hone their skills in making espresso.
While this 4 cup espresso machine may not be able to outperform the more expensive stainless steel espresso machines from DeLonghi Coffee, it can still performs adequately.
