From the manufacturer
An espresso is a far richer drink with a more intense taste than regular brewed drip coffee. An espresso is normally 1 1/2 to 2 oz. of strong coffee. Espresso should be served immediately after brewing. If the espresso is too strong, you can add hot water. Add sugar to taste.
Water in the Boiler
The water in the boiler of the machine will get hotter during the brewing process. Towards the end of the brewing process the water will be so hot that it would burn your espresso. Therefore you never want to process all the water through the coffee as this will result in a burnt taste.
1 1/2 to 2 oz. of espresso coffee with 3 to 4 oz. of steamed and frothed milk on top. Sprinkle chocolate shavings or cinnamon on top of the milk froth. For a stronger taste increase the amount of coffee. For a milder taste increase the amount of milk.
Foamy layer of milk froth on top of hot milk. Which kind of milk? Skim milk and 1% milk will produce more milk froth than 2% or regular milk.
Cleaning The Frother Nozzle:
Wait until the machine has cooled down. The metal frother pipe may still be hot. Pull the frother nozzle off and thoroughly rinse under warm water. Make sure the nozzle is free of any milk deposits. Replace the frother nozzle. Make sure it is firmly pushed up the frother tube.
De-calcifying every 3 months
Remove the nozzle from the steam pipe. Fill carafe (2 oz. of white vinegar and 6 oz. cold water) and pour into the boiler. Close cap. Insert the filter holder with the basket into the machine and lock the filter holder. Place carafe without the lid under the filter holder on the drip tray. Place an empty cup under the steam pipe. Make sure the coffee/steam selector points to the cup symbol and the steam knob is closed. Turn the machine on and let the solution pass through the filter holder into the machine. With the carafe about ¾-filled, slide the selector to the steam symbol. Pass the solution through the steam pipe. Once steaming has stopped, close the steam knob. Repeat once or twice.
Always unplug the machine before cleaning. Never use scouring agents. Wait until machine has cooled down. Never immerse the machine in water or any other liquid. Never hold the machine under running water. To clean, simply wipe off with a soft, damp cloth.
Clean the Filter Basket
Clean the filter basket, the filter holder, and the glass carafe in a hot water/ mild soap solution. For your convenience, the filter holder, filter basket, and glass carafe can be put in the dishwasher's upper level, away from any heating element. Make sure the holes in the filter basket are free of old coffee deposits.
Clean the Tray
Remove the tray cover and drip tray and clean with hot water/mild soap solution. Replace the tray cover and drip tray and make sure the drip tray is locked in place. Wipe the inner screen with a wet cloth. The screen is located above the filter holder area.
Experience the full taste of espressos, cappuccinos and lattes. The Capresso 4-Cup Espresso and Cappuccino Machine features an exclusive Coffee/Steam Selector that makes it easy to control both brewing and steaming, allowing the user to adjust coffee strength to their personal taste. A Swivel frother with adjustable steam output allow you to steam large or small amounts of milk in seconds. The powerful steam/boiler reduces warm-up time to under 2 minutes, producing 2 to 4 cappuccinos or lattes in under 5 minutes.
Top customer reviews
During the last 20 years, we have had 6 or 7 different espresso machines ranging from $40.00 to $180.00 in price. This one which retails for $105.00 (we paid less on Amazon)is the best. It is easy to use and creates exceptionally good coffee drinks.
A word of caution for any machine you purchase: READ the INSTRUCTIONS. The directions for each machine differ slighty. My caffeine addicted hubby overfilled the water chamber on a very expensive espresso/cappuccino machine and broke it.
The Capresso 303.01 is the machine I would recommend to friends and family. We are extremely happy with this machine.
UPDATE January 2012: We are still loving this machine. After at least twice a daily use (sometimes abuse), it is just starting to act a little tired. The carafe was replaced due to human error. Apparently glass breaks when dropped into a sink. (Amazon had the least expensive replacement.) The steamer is still going strong. Recently I have noticed that the espresso is not brewing quite as hot as it had been for the first 2+ years. Other than that our espresso machine is functioning well. When this machine finally dies, I plan to replace it with another 303.01. The price is currently at an all time low.
UPDATE April 2016: We replaced our last Capresso 303.01 4-Cup Machine (RIP 02/2013-02/2016). There is a new version of the 303.01. IT IS GARBAGE! Please don't waste your time and money. When this one was purchased in Mid-March, Amazon also had the original style 303.01 priced at $45 dollars more. I wasn't working at the time, so we purchased the cheaper version. My wonderful spouse called Jura, the maker of this machine. They will replace the machine. As totally dependent pretentious caffeine snobs, we didn't wait for a replacement, we purchased a totally different espresso machine. It is a 'starter' pump machine. So far we like it. FYI: My caffeine addicted hubby read the instructions before his first attempt with the new machine.
-- compact unit (doesn’t take up too much counter space)
-- easy to use & clean, uncomplicated
-- produces good quality of expresso, froths milk nicely
-- easy to fill with coffee, with sufficient space to avoid spilling grounds all over
-- prone to breaking down very quickly and dangerously (the 2 I’ve had so far have had issues with a faulty water seal, leading to spraying hot water out the top and then a faulty steamer that also sprayed out boiling milk all over the machine when it would suddenly lurch in the middle of operation, sometime hitting the carafe)
-- no frothing pitcher
-- can run out of steam for frothing
Steam the milk first to avoid using all the water/steam pressure when making the coffee and having none left for steaming
Absolutely release any remaining steam/pressure and turn off machine before opening the lid to add more water
Allow machine to fully heat water before using, this takes my machine about 5 minutes and I can hear slight squeaking in the frother when it’s ready – this makes a big difference in the quality of the expresso and frothing ability
FINAL THOUGHTS: I confess, I’m still drawn to this machine despite the very serious issues with it breaking down relatively quickly and in ways that can be dangerous. I enjoy the quality of the coffee, ease of use and how small & space-saving the unit is. That said, if it breaks down after a few months use it’s not a worthwhile purchase - wasting considerable time and money.
Not feeling confident about other much more expensive machines and their mixed reviews has pushed me to give the Capresso one more chance and order my 3rd machine…which will hopefully not break down. However, I wouldn’t in all fairness recommend this to friends or family.
