Espresso Maker Buying Guide

If you're coffee enthusiasts and love the taste and aroma of strong coffee then an Espresso Machine is a must-have for you. The main difference between a cup of regular coffee and espresso is the method of brewing. Espresso forces the water to pass through finely-ground coffee beans which are roasted for a longer time than normal coffee beans. A regular coffee maker uses gravity to pull the water through the filters in a bed of coffee beans. Coffee can be brewed in many different ways, but nothing can compare the robust flavour you get from a shot of espresso.  

Types of Coffee you Can Make With an Espresso Machine 

Cappuccino 

Cappuccino is the most popular espresso drink and can be made with any home Espresso Maker. It is made by topping a shot of espresso, steamed milk and milk foam. Typically, all these three ingredients are in equal parts of 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, and 1/3 foamed milk. 

Latte 

Latte involves adding steamed milk to a single shot of espresso. It is very similar to a cappuccino, but it requires more milk and a thinner layer of foam. Compared with the other beverages, lattes have a milder and slightly sweet flavor. 

Macchiato 

You can make macchiato by adding a couple of shots of espresso with a very little quantity of milk. It has a much stronger flavor than other coffee drinks and gives you a full taste of the coffee blend.  

Mocha 

Like a latte, mocha is a strong tasting coffee. But they are different in terms of their preparation. While in a mocha, you need to add chocolate at the end along with a very little milk as compared to a cup of latte.  

Types of Espresso Makers 

Manual 

Manual Espresso Makers offers traditional style espresso. These machines use a lever that creates pressure for extraction. However, the amount of effort to create that perfect cup of espresso is more than in an automatic one. 

Semi-Automatic 

Semi-Automatic Espresso Makers are the most popular machine in the market as they are easy to operate and provides you with some flexible controls. These machines have an electric pump to brew your coffee but requires you to manually start and shut off the machine.  

Automatic 

With fully automatic Espresso Makers, you don't have to worry about the extraction process or any levers. All you need to do is to make sure that it has an adequate amount of coffee and water. The best part about a fully automatic Espresso Maker is that it gives consistent results every single time you make coffee and takes very less effort to use.  

Factors to Consider before Buying an Espresso Maker 

Durability 

Espresso coffee makers are highly durable as they come with a chrome r stainless steel finish and usually lasts between 5 -7 years. Before investing in an Espresso Maker, reading the reviews about it is recommended.  

Easy to Clean 

Cleaning your machine regularly is very crucial to ensure it smooth working. Look for a machine that is easier to assemble as it will remove the effort required for cleaning to a large extent.  

Frothing Capacity 

If you love to experiment with different espresso drinks, then you should consider a machine that can froth the pressurized milk to its maximum giving you a balanced taste of the creamy milk and the bitterness of the espresso.  

Warranty 

While investing in appliances, keeping in mind the warranty is required. Usually, Espresso Makers come with a warranty period of 1 year and can be extended in certain cases. If you are purchasing it online, take a look at the return policy of the product before you invest.  

Conclusion 

Espresso Machines are a great investment if you are a regular coffee drinker and appreciate strong coffee. These appliances come in various styles and sleek finish making it a great addition for your kitchen. For more buying choices, take a look at our featured-section above where we have recommended some of the best Espresso Machines, based on their quality, durability and performance.
