Krups Launches Campaign to Recognize First Responders and Military PersonnelNEW YORK-The Krups brand of Groupe SEB has formed a partnership with barista Samuel Lewontin, in which Lewontin will share his experience in preparing barista-quality coffee recipes with Krups coffeemakers.

Lewontin was present at last month's International Home + Housewares Show at Groupe SEB's booth, sharing his coffee and espresso expertise with retailers and media, according to a Krups statement, and performing demonstrations. Michelle Lupton, marketing communications director for Krups and Groupe SEB, said Lewontin and Krups will continue to share barista-quality coffee recipes as part of this partnership, with a focus on Krups professional-grade coffee, espresso and fully automatic machines.
