For example

Rocket Espresso Professionale

Gaggia New Espresso

3.Has cup warmer
?

With a cup warmer you can heat the cups before pulling your espresso so that it doesn't go cold quickly, which affects the taste and quality. It also means that you don’t have to manually heat them using hot water.

For example

Rancilio Silvia

Gaggia New Espresso
4.Has an integrated grinder
?

The espresso machine has an integrated grinder so that you don’t have to buy a separate one.

For example

Breville Barista Express

Gaggia New Espresso
5.Has burr grinder
?

A burr grinder works in such a way that you can get a consistent, uniform size of grind each time, which is one of the key aspects of getting great tasting espresso. On the other hand an inferior blade grinder often leaves you with an inconsistent grind.

For example

Breville Barista Express

Gaggia New Espresso
6.Has a steam wand

Water source

1.Water tank is transparent
?

With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.

For example

Keurig K-Elite

Gaggia New Espresso
2.Has a removable water tank
?

The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.

Gaggia New Espresso
3.Has a hot water outlet
?

A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.

Gaggia New Espresso
4.Has PID controller
?

A PID controller controls the temperature of the boiler electronically. It offers a far greater degree of accuracy and consistency than a regular, mechanical thermostat used to control temperature. This is very important as a temperature of around 92°C to 96°C is key to pulling the perfect espresso.

For example

Quick Mill 02820

Gaggia New Espresso
5.Has integrated filter
?

An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.

Gaggia New Espresso
6.water tank capacity
?

With a larger water tank you don’t have to refill it as often.

Maintenance

1.Indicates when drip tray is full
?

With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.

For example

Delonghi EC 850.M

Gaggia New Espresso
2.Has cleaning alert
?

The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.

For example

Breville Infuser

Gaggia New Espresso
3.Prevents overheating
?

It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.

For example

Krups XP5240

Gaggia New Espresso

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
?

A 3-way solenoid valve relieves the portafilter of pressure and moisture after the extraction. This produces a dry puck which can easily be removed afterwards. It also means that you don’t have to wait for the pressure to equalise, so that you can make back-to-back coffees.

For example

Krups XP5240

Gaggia New Espresso
2.Has a pre-infusion function
?

With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.

For example

DeLonghi EC 820

Gaggia New Espresso
3.programmable buttons
?

These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.

4.Has a shot timer
?

The time taken to pull an espresso shot is one of four key elements, and should be around 19-22 seconds. Once you have the grind, dose and tamp correct, you can use the shot clock to time the pull perfectly.

For example

La Marzocco GS3
