Popular Krups Coffee Makers Info
Krups is a German manufacturer that produces kitchen appliance. It was founded in 1846 by Robert Krups and the company is also named after him. The company started operations by producing precision scales and mainly industrial balances from Wald near Solingen in North Rhine Westphalia. This was the company’s mainstay for the next 110 years.
At the moment, Krups is the leading manufacturer of different kinds of coffee makers like automatic drip coffee machines, coffee/espresso combination machines, Pod coffee makers and Nespresso.
In spite of the devastations caused by the World War II, Krups anticipated the needs of the post war markets and plunged into newer markets. It launched its first electric coffee grinder in 1956 and became pioneers in the industry. This was the time when small domestic appliances had started making their presence felt in the German kitchens and the Krups Coffee Grinder was a huge success. In 1961, the company manufactures ONKO coffee makers which later became the T8 coffeemakers and it is still in use under F468 reference.
In 1983 Krups launched its first espresso machine with an extended range of steam machines, electronically programmable models and combination espresso/coffee machine. In 1991, the company launched the first Krups Nespresso (espresso system using coffee pods), in partnership with Nestlé.
