French-style industrial excellence 

The Krups EVIDENCE by WILMOTTE coffee machine is manufactured in France, at the Mayenne industrial site which is the only manufacturer of bean-to-cup coffee machines in France. Furthermore, the electronic card which stores all of the machine's intelligence, is also manufactured in France at the Saint-Lô site in the La Manche department, to offer a unique taste experience. 

From a technical point of view, the EVIDENCE by WILMOTTE coffee machine guarantees high quality ground coffee with all the flavors preserved in every drop - for the pleasure of enjoying a barista-standard coffee. Furthermore, the high-quality metal percolation system ensures product robustness as well as optimum extraction of flavors. 

Extension of the Mayenne factory by around 2,000 m² and launch of the Krups Evidence automatic coffee machine.

Unique contemporary design

This new model, designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, is a perfect combination of elegant, minimalist design and performance. EVIDENCE by WILMOTTE stands out with its minimalist design and balanced volumes. Its brushed aluminum APLAT Ivano blue facade by Wilmotte, its stainless steel grill and its coffee nozzle and brushed stainless steel breastplate all give it a distinctive and timeless look.

The cylindrical and curved lines and the drip tray are inspired by both architecture and the design of Jean-Michel Wilmotte.
