This is very important as a temperature of around 92°C to 96°C is key to pulling the perfect espresso.

2.Can brew and steam simultaneously

0

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.
