Krups Arabica Digital : The machine that just keeps going and going

After a lot of deliberation of which bean to cup machine to buy i ended up getting the krups, several reviews mentioned that the milk steamer nozzle sometimes comes off during use but i thought it surely it can’t be that bad, well it is . The steamer nozzle is useless , every time i use it it blows off into the milk jug and makes a milky mess everywhere. The rest of the machine works really well and is really easy to use, there are lots of settings to allow you to make a cup of coffee exactly the way you like it, if you don’t care about the milk steamer then the machine is really worth getting but if a steamer is important to you then don’t bother, what a shame it really spoils an otherwise brilliant machine.

This is a fantastic bean-to-cup machine that delivers a great cup of coffee in next to no time. The adjustable dial on the front makes it easy to control the amount of liquid in your coffee; a bit of trial and error was needed for me at the start, but i soon got the hang of it. It’s also really easy to adjust the strength of the coffee from the clear controls on the front. The steam pipe is a great way to froth up coffee or even heat things up in a flash, while the capacious bean holder at the top holds plenty of coffee beans to keep you going for weeks. I also love the stylish design of this machine. I was a bit worried at first it would be a bit bulky, and while you definitely notice it in the kitchen, that isn’t a bad thing thanks to its sleek and sophisticated look. The drip tray on the base also means it’s easy to keep things clean in the kitchen – particularly handy when you’re making a quick coffee to gofinally, i really appreciate how easy the machine is to clean and maintain. The water dispenser is easy to attach and remove on a whim, so even if you do run out of water mid-coffee, there’s no need for drama. The compartments for the used coffee grounds simply pull out and can be tapped empty, then just run under the tap to wash – simplea much-loved (and much-used) addition to my kitchen.

Great coffee machine,makes very tasty coffee.

Haven’t used this yet so will let you know how it performs. Was a little hesitant from mixed reviews. Despite being plastic i think it looks smart and professional. Came in good condition despite the box having a hole in the side. Not the kind of thing you expect spending over £300 for a coffee machine but.

Perfect machine , it replaces a barista ☺️.

It took a while to get the hang of. The manual is in chocolate fireguard territory , but once i had worked it out and got through it’s initial cleaning run. . Or a mop it works brilliantly , is simple to use and clean.

It grinds the beans to what strength you want. May i suggest you get spiller & tait barista blend coffee beans. The only thing is you’ve to keep cleaning the steam nozzle because the hole gets blocked.

It is reliable (so far – after four months or so) and makes good coffee. It is easy to maintain and clean. The only slightly annoying thing is that the drip tray fills up very quickly on a routine basis ( or just from things spilled – it’s part of the way the machine works). This means that you really need to empty it every time you use the machine, or water leaks into your work surface. Not used the milk frothed as i use a separate aeroccino.

Every coffee is a great coffee.

This machine delivers barista-quality espresso, long coffee and cappuccino. 7 l water tank and 250 g bean container you can make up to 10 coffees. With its easy-to-use button controls and a rotary dial this machine puts full drink-making control at your fingertips. It has three temperature settings and three grinding levels, plus adjustable coffee strength and water volume, for customized results. The machine is quite bulky, so you will need to set it up and leave it in situ. For anyone who likes really good tasting coffee, this machine will satisfy you. It looks cool, and boy does it deliver a lovely cup of coffee.

As with most espresso machines a fair amount of setting up and reading the manual is required, but after the installation cycle really easy to use. I decided to use the filters in the water reservoir (need replacing after a couple of months or after so many cups) these do extend the life of the machine for quite a few years especially where i live where the water is really harda couple of settings on the machine for strength of coffee that you can program into it via the digital part of the machine but designed to be set once really, but then still get them choice of double strength or single via the start buttons. Easy to set up two cups on the tray and a quick double press of the start button runs the cycle twice to make things easier. The reserves are quite big as well so you get a fair amount of coffee before having to refil the beans or water.

So, thinking about a coffee machine, bean to cup. Build quality, as you’d expect is excellent. Still lots of plastic but all the important components seem robust. On start-up make sure the one flimsy sheet of paper that covers “first use” doesn’t float away to the bottom of the box. If you do you’ll read the instructions then wonder why you’re diving to put towels down to soak up all the water it’s spewed all over the work surface as it does its automatic initial purge. In terms of choice of coffee strengths and types here are the key factors:- one knob on the front of the machine covers volume from 20 to 200ml of coffee output- two buttons on the front control the output strength- and one hidden knob inside the grinder controls how finely the coffee is ground (the finer, the stronger)so it takes a bi of playing about with the get a coffee the volume and strength that you enjoy. I like mugs of coffee and a normal sized mug needs the maximum volume, although still well shy of a full mug, leaves plenty of room for milk or cream. Talking of milk, let’s go full barista.

This is a very smart looking machine. I got it to move away from the pod system coffee machine i was using to reduce my plastic waste. I can compost the coffee grounds. I love the coffee and so does my husband who is a new convert to fresh coffee. He uses the milk streamer a lot and also finds that easy to use and clean.

The krups arabica expresso is machine is one in a range of similar (in terms of what they do – make expresso coffee) models by the brand. The name suggests that it will only brew ‘expresso’ beans, but the expresso term actually refers to an extraction process rather than a type of bean. It’s possible to buy coffee beans marketed as expresso, but they are just coffee beans usually deep roasted suitable for making a good expresso coffee. The machine is fairly compact at about 9 inches (23cm) wide x 12 inches (30cm) deep, so it will sit quite comfortably on the work top. The finish is black and silver, with an improvement over some of the earlier models which showed some screws on the front which looked a little unsightly. The controls are all manual – push buttons and a rotary dial – which to me gives a far more pleasant look than led versions. Using the controls is straightforward, and the instructions are easy to follow. On the top are a 250g bean container and 1. 7 litre water reservoir, and all controls are on the front. Operating the machine is easy, with the various buttons controlling water temperature, coffee grinding fineness, volume (20ml up to 220ml).

This is an impressive coffee maker. I have been using a system which uses capsules and which, in fairness produces a decent cup of coffee with not a lot of fuss, and fairly economically at least compared with starbucks and it’s like. However, against freshly ground coffee beans there really is no comparison. Out of the box i was concerned that i was getting something unwieldy that i was going to struggle to fit into the kitchen. However, with a footprint of about 9 inches wide and 11 inches deep it does not take up a lot more space than the average nespresso or dulce gusto machine and should fit comfortably on the side in all but the smallest of kitchens. My other main concern was that this was all going to be rather complicated, but in fact i had it up and running very quickly. There is a compartment on top for coffee beans, which you fill and which does for quite a few cups of coffee before it needs refilling. Ditto the waste compartment. The machine compresses the used grounds into circular discs which then accumulate and it takes quite a time to fill. Once the unit has warmed up you press the appropriate button depending whether you want an expresso. It takes about 50 seconds to dispense a reasonable quantity and then another 15 seconds before it is ready to go again. The frothing attachment for milk is really effective and quite important, not only because it’s nice to have froth on top of coffee but also because using cold milk cools down the coffee too much. We used inexpensive colombian coffee beans sourced from aldi and the results were excellent as the krups produced a delicious cup of coffee comparable with what you would pay a lot of money for at a coffee shop. Obviously the results will depend on the kind of beans you choose to use and we are looking forward to experimenting.
