Crema is the goldish brown top that goes onto the top of the coffee once it is dispersed from the espresso tap and flows naturally as part of the coffee when coffee is made. Im not sure what you mean "blasted."
Perhaps you should flush through the machine with cold water a couple of times beforehand and also consider a descaling kit - check your manual or Krups if there is one for this model.
Crema isn't produced by any machine though.

The frother doesn't work on my 2nd hand Krups XP2070


The frother usually has a rubber tip. The rubber tip normally has an additional pipe right next to the frother. The pipe's black plastic tip has a very small hole in it. This can get clogged and the frother will not work. Take a pin/needle and unclog this very small hole. The pipe itself can be plugged with milk residue and will need cleaning.

If you take the strainer cup and hold it up to a light, you can see if all the holes are open. If not, this will slow down the brewing process and create a LOT of back pressure which can force the water to flow out through the sides above the strainer cup. Take a needle and open each hole of the strainer cup.

When grinding your own beans, try not to process the coffee too fine or it starts to fit into the holes of the strainer cup. This can also slow down the brewing process. If you grind a batch too fine, you can sometimes get a way with mixing it with a batch of coarse or under-ground beans.

My meile does not make good coffe


Remove the Brew Unit from the maschine and clean it very well und running water. Thn go into the Main menu and switch back all settings to factory defaults. Then take a vaccum cleaner and put the pipe in the small hole where the coffe falls into the brew unit (knock a bit on the maschin inside). Put out the bean container and do the same with the hole where the beans go into the grinder. Then put everything back in and start a cleaning process for the brew unit (do it 2 times).
After that your Problems must be gone. The Problem is between the grinder and the brew unit. the grinded coffee has bee stuck and is not falling into the brew unit .... that happens when you use beans with lots of oil inside  .... or coated beans .... they "glue" the chute .....

Weak coffee and pale crema.


If you get weak coffee from espresso machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.


Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.
