Components

1.Has burr grinder
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
A burr grinder works in such a way that you can get a consistent, uniform size of grind each time, which is one of the key aspects of getting great tasting espresso. On the other hand an inferior blade grinder often leaves you with an inconsistent grind.
2.Has an integrated grinder
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
3.Cup clearance is adjustable
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
An adjustable cup clearance is useful when you wish to use larger cups and mugs, such as when making a latte macchiato.
4.Has a steam wand
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
5.dump box capacity

8

14

The machine automatically deposits the used coffee grounds or pods into the dump box after extraction. The dump box capacity shows how many drinks you can create before it is full.
6.Has cup warmer
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
With a cup warmer you can heat the cups before pulling your espresso so that it doesn't go cold quickly, which affects the taste and quality. It also means that you don’t have to manually heat them using hot water.

Water source

1.water tank capacity

1.2l

1.8l

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.
2.Has a removable water tank
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
3.Has integrated filter
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
4.Has a hot water outlet
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
5.Water tank is transparent
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.

Maintenance

1.Automatic coffee circuit rinse
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
The machine automatically cleans the coffee circuit, meaning that the machine requires a minimal amount of cleaning.
2.Has cleaning alert
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.
3.Has sleep mode
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.

Features

1.Has integrated milk frother
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
With an integrated milk frother, the machine can automatically produce frothed milk for use in cappuccinos and other drinks.
2.Has a pre-infusion function
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.

Miscellaneous

1.Uses ground coffee
Gaggia Brera
Krups Espresseria Automatic Premium EA8260
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.
