Why they're great
Bring café luxury to your home with automatic, super-automatic or commercial-grade espresso machines.
How they work
Fill the reservoir with water and the filter basket with finely ground espresso. Water is heated just below the boiling point.
The espresso is brewed by forcing the pressurized water through ground coffee and a filter in order to produce a thick, concentrated coffee called espresso.
An espresso machine may also feature a steam wand which is used to steam and froth liquids (like milk) for coffee drinks such as cappuccino and caffe latte.
Consult the user's manual for detailed instructions as machine functionality varies.
Brew Tip: For the best espresso at home, use finely ground beans similar to the consistency of table salt.
What's the Difference Between an Espresso Maker and a Coffee Maker?
As you shop for the perfect kitchen applicance to brew your ideal cup of joe in the morning, you might be wondering, "What is the difference between espresso makers and coffee makers?"
This is a good question, as the two appliance types may seem similar, when in fact they vary greatly in potential costs, functions, and designs.
The biggest difference between an espresso machine and a coffee maker is their brewing method. An espresso machine brews for a shorter time due to the fineness of the espresso grounds. A coffee maker brews for a longer time since the grounds used are slightly larger.
An espresso machine also uses high pressure to force the water to go through the grounds to ensure you get a great-tasting, rich, creamy espresso. Coffee makers use gravity to allow the water to be pulled through the grounds more slowly, meaning the brewing process takes a bit more time and the end result is a bit weaker than the espresso.
Since both machines can provide you with a great, hot cup of coffee each and every morining, it comes down to your personal preference as to which option you choose. And at Kohl's, you can be confident that no matter which appliance is right for you, we will have just the one you're looking for!
