    Krups KM7000 Design

    Inspired by professionals and designed for coffee connoisseurs, the Krups KM7000 was built with three key attributes in mind: Passion, Precision and Perfection, and embodies the mastery of the key components to the perfect cup of coffee: the grind, the coffee-to-water ratio, the brew temperature and contact time.

    It features a conical steel burr grinder, recognized by coffee connoisseurs as the best method of preparing whole beans, as well as 5 grind levels to allow adjustments from fine to coarse. Various grind levels produce varying-bodied brews.

    The Krups KM7000 body is constructed of durable plastic, making the entire unit lightweight and easy to move around. Stainless steel accents bode well to it’s aesthetic appeal, and the glass pot has a nice shape, which fits snug in the unit.



    The KM7000 can make up to ten cups of coffee in just few minutes, and functions automatically thanks to its five programmable grinding levels. The taste and strength of the coffee can also be customized using its three different brew settings — mild, medium and strong — along with the aroma function for more intense extraction. The number of cups selection ensures a complete control on the brewing process.

    Control and convenience are paramount with the Krups KM7000 Grind and Brew coffee machine. Programmable, the KRUPS coffee maker can be set to automatically brew. The warming plate then maintains the temperature in the carafe for up to 2 hours after which the machine shuts off automatically for safety and convenience. And for these who are in a hurry, the pause and serve feature allows you to remove the carafe during the brew cycle and pour an early cup.

    With the KM7000, you can prepare from 2 to 10-cups of intense coffee every morning for a unique experience each and every time. and you’re able to set the total amount of coffee that it will produce, from 2 to 10 cups. It also has a water filtration system, which removes chlorine and other minerals from tap water, for the best and cleanest water. It also has a brew-pause feature.

    The grinder blade is sharp, well made and grinds beans with consistency and power. It also doesn’t make too much noise, especially compared to stand-along hand grinders. Beans are ground accurately based on the setting you choose. A “big-bean” setting will produce chopped beans, while a higher setting turns your coffee beans into a uniform fine powder. Either way you like it, we found each time the KM7000 delivered an awesome cup of coffee, thanks to its brewing process, water filtration, and its available customizable settings.
