Capresso - EC100
For perfect high-pressure brewed espresso
Perfect the art of brewing espresso with the new EC100 pump espresso and cappuccino machine. Create new and delicious gourmet coffee beverages quickly and easily with the stainless-steel lined ThermoBlock. Frothing and steaming milk has never been simpler with two frothing positions for making lattes or cappuccinos.
How Things Work
This device is easy use and performs very well. There are two parts of the frother. There is a Frothing Sleeve for cappuccinos and when the Frothing Sleeve is removed, it reveals the Steam Tube for lattes. Frothing: Frothing Sleeve is in place over the steam tube. Hot steam and air are injected into the milk. The air will swirl inside the milk creating silky dense froth on top of the milk, ideal for a cappuccino. Steaming only; Frothing Sleeve is removed to reveal the Steam Tube. Only hot steam will be injected into the milk. This is ideal for a latte. Important: To work properly, the Frothing Sleeve and Steam Tube need to be free of any milk deposits from earlier use.

When I tried the machine it worked wonderfully, and later some of the shots I pulled were weak... Similar to what others had mentioned as a con.
Unlike the latter I knew that it did well initially so the error must've fallen on myself, but how? I wondered. So I went online a did a bit of research and found the error lay on how I was grinding the beans. Online it said that certain machine work well with certain grinds. This particular one must be extremely finely ground, and a burr grinder would work more efficiently.
As for the complaints about the bitterness, you get a bit more bitter taste with grinding it finely, but honestly esperesso is not meant to be extremely bitter, that is the result of burnt grounds scorched under pressure, and that's the result of a poor grinder typically.
Do the research there's plenty of information on the Internet and YouTube ... It is a great machine! Very easy to use at a great price.
Super easy machine for making capuccino: I make the froth in a cup and then dispense the espresso directly into the same cup. This might be blasphemy, but at 5:30am, who cares.
10 second cleanup: I wipe off the nozzle, tap out the hockey puck into the garbage, and rinse it.
Large clear water container, easy to see how much water is left.
Cleaning the machine: I ran diluted vinegar through once so far in 6 months. Working fine. I had to clean out the brew head once. easy to follow instructions
Note on espresso strength: as another reviewer said, the coffee seemed like it was on the weak side at first, then after about a lb., regular strength. Don't know if this was my perception, or the machine.
Other things to like:
Water container holds enough to make many cups in a row before refilling.
easy and thorough manual.
The price is nice! Had the unit 6 months so far, so hope it keeps up the good work.
Update: still works great. 1 1/2 yrs. Crema still excellent, frothing still excellent, haven't de-mineralized. Cleanup faster than others. I use it 2 or 3 times a day. Not necessary to bleed steaming wand first, so this is one less step. Switched to a slightly finer grind for a stronger cup. First couple of times you use it, be sure to push handle to locked position.
I had issues with the first machine I purchased. After about a month of usage, 2-3 coffees a day, the steam wand stopped working. While in steam mode, the machine didn't make any noise or produce steam. Almost as if the switch wasn't triggering. However, coffee was still producible.
I contacted Capresso directly, without expecting much in the way of customer service. Much to my surprise, they apologized for the machine malfunction. The shipped me out a brand new machine, that day, without hesitation! Once I received the new machine, I un-boxed and ensured it worked. Then I boxed up the malfunctioning unit (in the same box I received the new one), affixed the prepaid UPS label (that they provided!!) and shipped it back to Capresso. Really was a fantastic customer service experience. I thought for sure that I would have issues.
At any rate, I'm using a brand new machine for the past week and am extremely happy. I brew ESE pods at work through the machine and it's 'single cup' porta filter basket. I steam milk via the steam wand, occasionally using the frothier.
This machine enables you to prepare espresso with a medium, strong, or very strong taste, using either ground coffee or pods. You can prepare either one or two espressos at a time. It also enables you to prepare cappuccinos (by frothing the milk) or lattes (by steaming it). Oddly, the recipes in the manual do not mention how to prepare a café mocha. My own method is to squirt some Hershey's sugar-free chocolate syrup into a latte, add two packets of artificial sweetener, and stir vigorously. The manual does include helpful tips on ingredients. For example, the lower fat milk is the more froth it will produce. I'm sure you'll think of your own favorite flavorings to add to beverages--cinnamon, brandy, whipped cream on top, or whatever.
I found the machine fairly easy to use, although it's a bit fiddly. You need to go through several steps just to pre-warm the components and the cups. And there's filling the water container, inserting the filter, steaming the milk, cleaning the machine after use . . . on the other hand, at the local coffee shop I just wait around while someone else does all this stuff.
This machine comes with a limited one-year warranty and an order form for parts when they need replacing, which parts are actually quite reasonably priced. Oh, and a separate copy of the manual entirely in French, should you need it.

Works great. Only issue we had was the portafilter started to corrode after only 9 months and left a black residue to the touch. Spoke with customer service, who replaced it free.Published 2 days ago by Amazon Customer
