How Things Work

  • The steam boiler principle of the Capresso 4 Cup Espresso & Cappuccino Machine heats up water and then starts forcing the hot water through the filter holder and brewing espresso coffee into the glass carafe. During this time steam starts collecting in the boiler. When the coffee has reached the bottom line marking on the glass carafe, you can stop the brewing and switch to frothing milk. At that time the machine has created maximum amount of steam. When you finish frothing, turn the selector switch back to the coffee brewing position.
  • Note* Important:To avoid a burnt coffee taste, stop the brewing before all the hot water has passed through the filter holder.

What Is Espresso?

The majority of coffee experts considers brewing coffee fast and under high pressure the ideal process to extract maximum flavor and aroma from your coffee. The high pressure and the short brewing time prevent the extraction of bitter oils and release less caffeine than other brewing methods.

When you use this technique and brew one to two ounces of coffee it is considered an espresso. When the grinding, the tamping and the pressure brewing all come together in the right combination your espresso will always feature a foamy layer on top, called "crema". The crema traps the fine aromatics and the light gaseous flavors that register on the palate. It keeps the flavors, which would other wise escape, locked in. The crema is the hallmark of a well prepared espresso.

Pump Pressure

Pressure is the result of the packed (tamped) coffee giving the water resistance to pass through. The pump forces the water through that resistance and the power it needs to do so is commonly measured in bar (= kg per square centimeter). Good pumps should be able create more pressure (power) than they need to produce perfect espresso so that they don’t break when the right combination (fineness and consistency of grind, tamping, amount of ground coffee) are not prevalent. A good pump has a capacity of creating 15 or more bars.

To produce a lasting crema on top of your espresso the water should pass through the coffee at approximately 7 to 9 bar of pressure. If the pressure is lower, the crema will disappear before you can enjoy your coffee and the coffee will taste thin and watery. This is mostly the case when there is too little coffee in the filter holder or brewing chamber or if the coffee is too coarsely ground. If the pressure is higher than 9 bars, the coffee will taste bitter and the espresso will have no crema on top. This is mostly the case when the small metal sieves are dirty or clogged or when the coffee is ground too fine. As a result coffee extraction is too long, resulting in a bitter taste.

        I brought this product to wean myself from visiting the coffee stand every morning. I think it will do the trick. Just so you know I use regular hershey's chocolate syrup to mix a mocha and it tastes great. Took awhile to learn how to use the machine and I really have to stay focused on what I'm doing, but I think that's exactly what I need right now. Too bad It doesn't make enough coffee to make 4 cappucinos in my opinion. But I use a bigger cup.

          Great machine for personal use, especially if you are a latte or capucino person and like a hote cup of coffee - also lets you regulate your brew -I like it strong, but you have choices to have a milder brew.

            My husband uses it several times a week and likes it better than the Mr. Coffee it replaced. It's very easy to clean.

                I've had several low-cost espresso machines that last a couple of years of daily use and then it Krups out. This one looks to be solidly made and should last longer. It has a useful adjustment for water quantity which the other ones didn't have. The only potential problem is the steam nozzle. With my other machines eventually the steam nozzle gets blocked with hard water deposits, but I could unscrew it and clean it out. This one doesn't have the option to unscrew the nozzle.
