The Krups XP618050 Twin Thermoblock Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine is Krups first twin Thermoblock high-performance espresso machine. Its design is the culmination of feedback from customers and espresso experts demanding the best quality espresso and coffee-milk drinks. The ability of this machine to produce Lattes, Cappuccinos, and Espressos rivals much costlier machines.The Krups XP618050 Twin allows you to make elegant coffee drinks at home with ease while giving you barista-style control over extracting espresso and frothing milk. Separate hot-water and steam can be dispensed from the huge 3 liter reservoir providing rapid production of many types of drinks quickly.
Programmable functions for manual, single and double espresso automatically include a 3 second pre-infusion stage to make sweeter espressos with great body. Included are filter baskets for using ESE pods or making single or double shots with your own ground coffee.
The well designed and simple control system allows you to precisely program the brew temperature and the single and double shot volume for your particular preference.
A unique espresso pressure gauge gives you feedback on the water pressure at the brew group. This helps you to fine tune the coffee grind fineness to get a perfect extraction of espresso, allowing the brew-water to flow not too fast or too slow, but just right for sweet full bodied shots.
The brushed aluminum & stainless steel housing is durable, easy to clean and fits well in almost any decor scheme. It is an attractive appliance for the home or small office.
The 800W Thermoblock heaters are made by die-casting aluminum around stainless steel tubing so you get the best of both - stainless steel corrosion resistance in contact with the brew water and the low cost of manufacturing a finished part in die-cast aluminum.
Included is an actively heated group head that provides more consistent and stabile temperature control. Although achieved in a different way, it mimics the thermo-siphon benefits of E61brew groups in more expensive heat exchange and dual boiler machines.

What is the diameter of the Portafilter in the Krups XP618050?
It is a 58 MM tamper
Is it a good idea to brew and steam simultaneously on this machine?
Unfortunately, it is not-the main reason for the dual boiler system is to be able to go directly from brew to steam without any wait time. This machine cannot do both simultaneously. If you have any further questions, please contact our Sales team at 1-888-411-5282, option 1 for Sales, and then option 1 again for Residential. Our Sales Team is available Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Fridays 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., EST.
Hi, I have the krups machine Krups XP618050. I am looking far and wide for a non pressurized portafilter. It has an outside diameter of 60mm. I would like a single and double shot basket but I have had no luck
Are you able to help?
Unfortunately, we do not carry parts for Krups machines. I would suggest contacting Krups directly-they may be able to provide information. They can be reached at 1-800-526-5377.
