How To Find The Right Espresso Machine For You:

There are various kinds of espresso machines available in the market. All of these function differently and have different features. Before you start the process of brewing, make sure that you have an espresso machine which best suits your needs.  Following are some of the things you should keep in mind while buying a machine:

  • Manual machines require finely ground beans that are placed into the portafilter and tamped down. A filter is fixed to the brew head and a lever is used to pull water through the grounds. This machine allows you to customize the most and is the most difficult to master.
  • Semi-automatic machines operate with a dial or button which automates the flow of water; however, they are similar to manual machines when it comes to preparation. The machine also allows you to control the size of an espresso or any other coffee drink. 
  • Instead of a lever, a fully automatic machine has a button to brew espresso. The size of the drink is automated and usually programmable. This method offers more consistency than a semi-automatic or manual machine. It makes the whole process easier.
  • Super-automatic machines are a notch higher than automatic machines. Along with programmable and automated coffee shots, they measure, grind and often tamp beans as well.
  • Capsules machines require pods or capsules filled with pre-measured coffee to brew espresso or any other coffee drink. As compared to other machines, they offer the most consistency.

All of these machines work differently. People who are more inclined towards a machine that has a simple interface should go for a manual machine, while those who prefer advanced features should definitely consider a semi-automatic or automatic machine. It is essential that you buy a machine which is according to your preference as you won’t be able to enjoy the process of brewing coffee if the machine does not cater your needs. Make sure that you research all the features carefully and know which machine is the right pick for you before you purchase any.
