General info

1.weight

5.22kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

18641.28cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
6.width

228mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
7.Uses ground coffee
Krups Espresso XP5280
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.

Components

1.Has a steam wand
Krups Espresso XP5280
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
2.Has a 58mm portafilter
Krups Espresso XP5280
A 58mm portafilter is the most common size in the industry, offering a greater range of accessories to purchase such as portafilter baskets and tampers.
3.Has a commercial steam wand
Krups Espresso XP5280
It comes with a commercial style steam wand as opposed to a pannarello steam wand. These are harder to master but can allow you to produce better, richer milk froth.
4.Uses E61 group head
Krups Espresso XP5280
An E61 group head provides excellent temperature stability, a key aspect of producing great espresso. It also has the benefit of a passive pre-infusion feature.
5.Uses E61 brew group
Krups Espresso XP5280
The E61 brew group is the industry standard brew group for espresso machines, which delivers consistent, stable heat in order to help pull the perfect espresso.
6.Has an integrated grinder
Krups Espresso XP5280
The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.
7.Has a display
Krups Espresso XP5280
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.
8.Has cup warmer
Krups Espresso XP5280
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.
9.Has anti-burn steam wand
Krups Espresso XP5280
Steam wands are a fairly common source of burns when using espresso machines. An anti-burn steam wand has a lining inside that prevents the wand from getting scalding hot.

Water source

1.Has PID controller
Krups Espresso XP5280
A PID controller controls the temperature of the boiler electronically. It offers a far greater degree of accuracy and consistency than a regular, mechanical thermostat used to control temperature. This is very important as a temperature of around 92°C to 96°C is key to pulling the perfect espresso.
2.Has integrated filter
Krups Espresso XP5280
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
3.Water tank is transparent
Krups Espresso XP5280
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.
4.Has a removable water tank
Krups Espresso XP5280
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
5.Has direct water connection
Krups Espresso XP5280
The coffee machine can connect directly to the water supply. This ensures you never have to refill the machine with water.
6.Has a hot water outlet
Krups Espresso XP5280
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.

Maintenance

1.Indicates when drip tray is full
Krups Espresso XP5280
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
2.Has cleaning alert
Krups Espresso XP5280
The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.
3.Has dry puck feature
Krups Espresso XP5280
At the end of the extraction process, all moisture is removed from the puck. This allows you to easily tap out the coffee from the portafilter afterwards, reducing mess and the need to clean it as often.
4.Has sleep mode
Krups Espresso XP5280
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.
5.Prevents overheating
Krups Espresso XP5280
It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.

Features

1.Has a pre-infusion function
Krups Espresso XP5280
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.
2.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Krups Espresso XP5280
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.
These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.
4.Has a shot timer
Krups Espresso XP5280
The time taken to pull an espresso shot is one of four key elements, and should be around 19-22 seconds. Once you have the grind, dose and tamp correct, you can use the shot clock to time the pull perfectly.
