The Joy Of Espresso Machines

Published on December 07 2009 by GuestPoster in Kitchen


More and more coffee lovers are investing in home espresso machines. Known for its rich taste and high concentration of caffeine in a tiny dose, espresso has become the drink of choice for a quick morning wake-up or after dinner drink. Traditional espresso machines have a reputation for being large, unwieldy and expensive, but new at home models are as easy to use and as inexpensive as any coffee maker.

EspressoIf you are shopping for your first espresso machine, there are a few things that should be kept in mind. The first is that most machines will dispense espresso in single servings and will not include pots, instead depositing coffee directly into cups. If this is the case, it may be worthwhile to invest in a set of small espresso mugs to ensure compatibility with your new machine.

Many espresso lovers are of the mind that the quality of the bean, not the quality of the espresso machine will determine the flavor. Most machines can be used with any ground coffee bean. For best results, choose a dark roast from a brand that you love. Espresso is typically taken black, so a nuanced bean will really shine.

Even if you have less than $100 to spend, you can get a great espresso machine. Retailers from luxury department stores to famous discounters now carry models, and even those at a lower price point can produce high quality espresso. Given the number of options available, taking the time to read online customer reviews is the best way to ensure that you are getting the best espresso machine for your money.

The last thing to keep in mind when purchasing an espresso machine is convenience. If you are an early morning espresso drink who is trying to fit in a cup before dashing off to work, a machine requiring elaborate preparations may not be worth it.
