Espresso Coffee Machines Espresso machines provide great flexibility, letting you get creative in your quest for the perfect crema. Espresso machines use widely available pre-ground coffee, or you can grind your coffee to the coarseness you require using a grinder (see coffee accessories). You’ll feel like a barista as you carefully pack the coffee into the tamper before creating beautifully intense espressos, lungos or ristrettos. Many of our espresso machines come with a milk frother that lets you make milky coffee drinks. By mixing milk with steam and air, you’ll be able to produce a luxurious froth. Espresso machines look the part with contemporary controls, cup warmers and adjustable cup stands. Although espresso machines require more work than automatic pod machines, it’s all worth it when you master the art and create the ultimate cup of coffee.
