The KRUPS KM7000 was designed to please coffee enthusiasts, people who understand how a great cup of coffee is made and what to look for. Unlike most coffee makers, the KRUPS KM7000 features an built-in bean grinder so this coffee maker is ideal for people who prefer to grind their own coffee beans.
As mentioned above, the main feature of the KRUPS KM7000 is its built-in coffee bean grinder. The fresher the ground beans are, the better the coffee will taste as the aroma of the beans is not lost over time. The grinder is a conical burr grinder which is recognized by many as the best way to grind your coffee beans. For your comfort and personal taste, the grinder features 5 different settings for coarseness so that you can get exactly what you are looking for. The fresh ground beans isn’t the only reason this coffee tastes great because the whole brewing process is focused around making the perfect batch and giving you a full and rich taste. The KRUPS KM7000 even allows you to further customize your coffee by offering three different coffee-strength settings, allowing you to drink the type of coffee you are in the mood for. If its already late, and you don’t want to be up for hours, just brew a weaker batch! Another reason for the great coffee taste is the water filtration system that purifies the water before brewing. You can also set it to brew 2-4 cups of coffee instead of a full batch which ensures that the coffee will taste just as good as a whole batch.
Moreover, the sleek, modern and high tech design ensures that this coffee maker looks good in every kitchen, guests will be dying to try a cup. The back lit LCD screen is nice and big and allows you to use all the functions and features. One main feature is the auto-on and off function which allows you to program your KRUPS KM7000 to start brewing and grinding at a specific time. The auto off function prevents you from ever forgetting to turn it off. It also features a brew pause function so that you can sneak a cup while the machine is still brewing. Another big advantage of the KRUPS KM7000 is how easy it is to clean. All the parts that require regular cleaning are easy to remove and clean, saving you a lot of time. Lastly, the KRUPS KM7000 comes with a user manual which I do recommend you read entirely. Many customers gave the KRUPS KM7000 a bad review saying it leaked or spilled ground beans everywhere and all they had to do was read the manual. Everything does need to be done a specific way but you get used to it in no time.
Anyone who enjoys using coffee maker/ grinder combos will love the KRUPS KM7000 which is why I can highly recommend it. It is a quality and sturdy machine that was built very well, meaning it will last a long time which is why KRUPS offers a 2 year world wide warrantly on the KM7000. An affordable, quality machine that does more than you would expect.
