Full Answer

The Krups XP7230 Compact is a small, powerful coffee maker that features a usable digital display and thermoblock heating system. Its small size enables it to fit in most locations, even small kitchens, while the thermoblock heating system makes sure that each cup of espresso from the first to the last is heated to the right temperature. This coffee maker boasts a burr grinder that can press beans into varying grades of fineness to suit different tastes. The machine can also be used to make milk-based coffee drinks. The attached steam nozzle lets users adjust for the desired level of frothiness. The removable drip tray makes the machine easy to clean and maintain.

In comparison with other equivalent auto espresso machines, the Krups XP7230 is between 30 to 50 percent smaller and several hundred dollars more affordable. However, some consumers believe that this machine isn't durable and has some design flaws, such as malfunctioning display messages. Another possible downside is that consistent use over a long period of time can cause the machine to break down sooner than it should.
