The average house hold has subjected themselves to years of punishment all thanks to the cheap slow brew coffee machines. The watered down, black gold we fuel ourselves with, each morning, falls short to the palette pleasing, oh so delicious, drink you could be making with an espresso machine.
Espresso Isn’t Rocket Science
You’re used to the normal routine of throwing out the old grounds, adding a filter, scooping in some coffee, and filling up with water. It’s a routine, it’s easy. However, when it comes to espresso machines, people suddenly feel as if they’ve been handed the controls to a spaceship.
Fear not because the actually process of making drinks with an espresso machine is easy as 1, 2, 3.
1. Detach and fill the handle with your coffee (preferably just grounded for a fresh taste).
2. Fill the reservoir with the appropriate amount of water and turn on the machine.
3. Sit back and watch as your cup is filled with your tasty beverage.
The process of the espresso machine uses similar inner workings the traditional slow drip one you’re used to with the exception that espresso is brewed using high pressure steam and water vs. hot water filtering through the coffee grounds.
What factors make for a great espresso machine?
First, start with a great grinder to ensure the coffee going into the machine is well rounded and flavored how you like it.
Second, consider the quality of the machine like a Delonghi from Linen Chest and how often you’ll be using it. You should find a nice balance of quality and price to get the best bang for your buck.
Third, browse the customer reviews especially between all major brands to see if there are any espresso machines that not only match your budget but come at a high recommendation based on experience using the machine.
Fourth, take a look at the design and functionality of the machine to see if it offers all the goodies (such as foaming milk or brewing two cups at once) you desire.
Lastly, take a look at the accessories that come with each machine and whether it will need any additional purchases to brew the perfect cup of espresso to your taste.
All-in-all, your morning deserves the best so ditch the slow brewer and become an espresso aficionado. Believe us, they’ll change the way you start the day.
