Krups EA8108 review: an inexpensive coffee machine for delicious coffee

Coffee machine for delicious espresso

If you have lit­tle space in the kitchen, then this cof­fee machine is just what you need. Krups EA8108 dimen­sions: 33*24*36 cen­time­ters. True, it is pre­cise­ly because of them that you will not be able to put a tall or wide cup under the cof­fee out­lets. But this is not nec­es­sary, because the pos­si­bil­i­ties of Krups are also lim­it­ed.

Krups EA8108 review: an inexpensive coffee machine for delicious coffeeThe mod­el does not have the func­tion of sav­ing recipes and the abil­i­ty to auto­mat­i­cal­ly pre­pare cof­fee with the addi­tion of milk (but there is a spe­cial noz­zle for whip­ping milk foam). The built-in cof­fee grinder has only three degrees of grind­ing, and it works very nois­i­ly.

But the taste of brewed cof­fee is excel­lent. The Krups espres­so is no worse than many oth­er, more expen­sive machines. Accord­ing to CHIP experts, the espres­so brewed by this machine has a rich taste, but with a slight sour note.

Easy to maintain and manage

Wait for a short warm-up time of 28 sec­onds and the machine will be ready to use. Unlike many oth­er mod­els, the Krups EA8108 does not have a dis­play. This has its own advan­tage: you do not have to scroll through the menu for a long time just to make a cup of espres­so. Minus: it will take a lit­tle time to get used to work­ing with the machine and learn the mean­ing of all the sym­bols on the but­tons.

The cof­fee residues that fall into a spe­cial con­tain­er for cake are quite dry. In prin­ci­ple, it is not nec­es­sary to clean it after each brewed cup — due to the low humid­i­ty, mold will not start in the waste tank. Krups EA8108 review: an inexpensive coffee machine for delicious coffee

The same goes for clean­ing the cof­fee machine. The rins­ing of the sys­tem is car­ried out at the touch of a but­ton, and after about 300 cof­fee brew­ing cycles, the appli­ance requires a rins­ing cycle using a spe­cial tablet. It is impos­si­ble to dis­as­sem­ble the machine on your own (not rec­om­mend­ed) — the brew­ing device of the mod­el is built-in.

Should I buy Krups EA8108?

If you want to quick­ly and eas­i­ly pre­pare a cup of espres­so or cap­puc­ci­no and at the same time agree to give up all sorts of bells and whis­tles, the Krups EA8108 cof­fee machine is what you need. It can be pur­chased for an aver­age of 23,000 rubles, but at the same time it does not lose much to more expen­sive com­peti­tors.
