Espresso Machines - Getting That Extra Kick Needn't Be Confusing!




By Jin Ee

There are so many different types of espresso machine on the market, with such a wide range of features, that it is no wonder that finding the right espresso machine for your business can be a perplexing task. But once you understand the basics, and the main differences between models, you will find that getting the best espresso coffee machine for you is much more straightforward than you might think.

First of all, it is important that you know exactly what an espresso machine actually does: once you understand this, many of the extra features that come with some coffee machines will not seem so strange! Espresso machines are fitted with a metal filter container that is filled with ground coffee; this is tamped down to compact the coffee grounds, and the metal filter is locked in place in the machine. Water is then pumped through the coffee grounds in the filter, and this produces an espresso coffee. Cappuccinos, lattes and other variations of coffee can also be made by adding various amounts of frothed milk to the basic espresso mix - espresso machines come with a steam wand and milk frother for this very purpose.

Some of the differences you will find between espresso machines include the number of steam wands (some have more than one so that you can steam milk for more than one cup at once), the number of 'heads' (the more heads a machine has, the more cups of coffee can be produced at one time), and the inclusion of related extras such as cup-warming plates and drip trays.

So keep the basics in mind, research the range of espresso machines out there and make sure you know exactly what kind of machine you can afford for your budget - then get ready to serve your espresso! Happy shopping!
