Choosing an Espresso Maker
Bring the tastes and aromas of your favorite coffee shop into your kitchen with an espresso maker. Nothing is more traditional than an Italian-style stovetop coffee maker. It works on any heating surface and brings the added benefit of a compact footprint, perfect for kitchens with limited counter space. If you prefer the convenience of an automated machine but want to avoid measuring, grinding and tamping, choose an appliance that uses neatly-packed capsules containing pre-measured grounds. For households with drip coffee and espresso drinkers, look for machines that brew either beverage. This dual-functionality feature saves time and streamlines your countertops. For the ultimate espresso experience, select a device that fully integrates grinding, tamping, brewing and self-cleaning with the touch of a button. These products also feature whisk attachments for heating and frothing milk, great for lattes, macchiatos, cappuccinos and other espresso-based drinks.
