Coffee is a big deal around our home, espresso is an even bigger deal, excellent espresso – well you get the picture. Up until recently we were using an outdated espresso/cappuccino machine, and while it served its purpose, it was beginning to cut into the flavor profile of our cappuccinos and espresso. We do not have time for that nonsense.
When I was recently asked to try out the Capresso Cafe Espresso Maker, I couldn’t turn it down. After all I was on the look out for a better tasting, better making machine.
If you look at the above image, you can see exactly how dark the espresso is and the beautiful crema up on top. That’s what good espresso is supposed to look like. As soon as mine arrived I unpacked it and immediately put it to good use!
Let’s check out its features, so you can see why I was so excited about it!
- ThermoBlock heating system with 16 bars of pressure for perfect high-pressure brewed espresso
- Removable 48-oz water container for easy filling and cleaning
- Self-locking filter holder with thumbguard for a proper fit
- Two sieves produce one or two rich, thick crema espressos at a time
- Single sieve for pre-ground coffee or pre-packed espresso pods
- Unlimited steam output for perfectly frothing or steaming milk for preparing cappuccinos and lattes
- Easy-to-use swivel frother for frothing directly in a tall glass or frothing pitcher
- Selector switch for espresso or steam/hot water
- Hot water switch for producing hot water for tea or café Americanos
- Easy-to-clean removable drip tray with water level indicator
- Integrated cup warming platform
- Indicator lights for “Warm Up” and “Ready”
- Concealed spare sieve storage compartment
- Cord storage
I love that it has the option for espresso pods or the pre-ground coffee, simply because I love trying different types of espressos. This has been, by far, the best espresso machine, I’ve owned to date.
The flavor doesn’t get compromised at all, the temperature is always even, and the crema, I love the crema on top of the espresso.
So this Holiday season, get your coffee connoisseur this amazing espresso machine, and share a nice hot cup of deliciousness with them!
