KRUPS Espresso Machine Review EA9010
The KRUPS Espresso Maker EA9010 has everything you would want in a super automatic espresso maker. And, while it is very good, I think you should demand outstanding for your $1700 and there are models out there that deliver better.
The KRUPS EA9010 is the premier KRUPS espresso maker. It is designed, built and tested in France. It looks good but doesn’t have the design excellence of their German or Italian counterparts and also lacks the quality of espresso of the great Italian brands.
The brewing checks all the boxes, it has a 15-bar pump and compact Thermoblock water heating system. The espresso has a good crema, but we have seen better. The espresso is less viscous than we would like and doesn’t seem to bring forth the same range of flavors and aroma as the leaders in this class.
The KRUPS color touch screen is excellent. Even though it is a few years old it still looks very modern and is intuitive, responsive and easy to learn. It is a true, one-touch super automatic espresso maker. It has 17 pre-programmed beverage options. They are ristretto, espresso, lungo, doppio, coffee, long black, americano, red eye, morning coffee, cappuccino, latte, milchkaffee / café au lait, flat white, hot milk, hot foamed milk and hot water to separately brew tea or whatever.
While they programmed a lot of options, for this prices class the customization of these are more limited than competing espresso makers. There are only three programmable strength level and three espresso temperature settings.
The KRUPS EA9010 grinder is excellent. The EA9010 is equipped with a conical grinder, which is excellent and will have less retention than a flat burr grinder. And, of course, you can use the grinder manually or automatically or use pre ground coffee.
The KRUPS EA9010 has an 8.8 oz. coffee bean container and holds 10 pucks of spent grounds. It also has a 56 oz. (1.7 L) removable water tank.
The KRUPS EA9010 automatic cleaning system is excellent. It comes with a Claris water filtration system. The unit is easy to maintain. There is no need to ever clean the inside. The milk system is kept clean with an automatic steam-nozzle.
