The Krups Espresseria Automatic EA8080 beans-to-cup
The Krups EA8080 allows you to fully customise your preferences via the easy to use control panel, which has an easy on the eye blue-backlit display. The Krups Espresseria has a wealth of useful built-in functions which are all readily accessibly from the control panel which also has a built-in digital clock, tells you when to descale, when to clean the machine and empty coffee grounds and even when to refill the beans hopper. From the panel you can also program the machine to switch on and off and adjust the water temperature and coffee strength. The Krups EA8080 includes a brushed stainless steel milk container and an auto-cappuccino attachment in the form of the XS6000 Auto-Cappuccino set. Like most Krups coffee machines it has a professional 15 bar pressure pump to ensure that the maximum flavour is extracted from the beans and the perfect aroma is obtained. Every cup is produced with fresh water at the perfect temperature, and at high speed, due to the integrated Thermoblock technology and Claris water filter. A result of this is that the machine needs de-scaling much less often. For an authentic froth the EA8080 Espresso machine utilises the auto cappuccino steaming arm which is connected to the elegant stainless steel milk container. This automatic coffee machine is supplied with a welcome pack which includes a Claris water filter, two cleaning tablets, a water hardness test, two sachets of descaling crystals, and an instruction booklet. Conveniently stored in a slot on the side of the machine is a very handy wipe clean quick reference guide to the main functions of the machine. For a fraction of the price you would pay at a coffee shop this high quality coffee maker dispenses coffee of the same standard. Just place your choice of coffee beans into the transparent 275g capacity hopper, select your preferences, and the machine takes care of everything else, dispensing a fantastic cup of coffee in just seconds. The machine automatically deposits the coffee grounds into a collector drawer for easy cleaning after dispensing the coffee. With this and the combination of the automatic rinsing, cleaning, and descaling program, maintaining your Krups EA8080 is as stress free as possible. The Espresseria boasts a wealth of features including a 1.8 litre water tank, a metallic conical burr grinder, stainless steel milk jug, an easy touch control panel, a compact Thermoblock system, and a 275g capacity bean hopper. The machine also comes with a free 2 year warranty if you complete and return the registration card to Krups to extend the standard one year warranty. Registration also gives you free membership of the Krups Coffee Club, which provides access to training materials on how to make great coffee and other coffee related offers. The machine is similar to the previous model (XP7240) but has an upgraded control unit, improved grinder and other updated features making the Krup Espresseria Automatic EA8080 an excellent machine; compact and stylish and packed with a wealth of features usually associated only with higher priced bean-to-cup machines.
