Features & Benefits: Coffee
Simple Control Panel
The EM-200 has a control panel designed for straightforward operation, so making your morning espresso is never a complicated process. The control panel features 6 metallic, backlit buttons, and from left to right they are labeled: power, manual brewing, 1-cup, 2-cup, programming, and steam. While the machine is heating to brewing temperature, the brewing buttons will flash. And, while the machine is heating to steaming temperature, the steaming button will flash. This ensures you can always enjoy your espresso at its ideal temperature and flavor.
Programmable Brewing Buttons
When you find just the right size for your espresso shot, you want to get the same, consistent results every time you brew. That’s why the Cuisinart EM-200 Espresso Machine has 2 programmable brewing buttons that let you set the liquid volume of your shots. The 1-cup and 2-cup buttons come pre-programmed for 1.5 and 3oz respectively, but can be easily changed. Simply press the programming button and then the brewing button you want to program to start the flow of espresso. The brewing button will flash, and when your desired liquid volume has been reached, just press the button again to stop dispensing. The machine will then beep to let you know your settings have been saved.
Some people prefer brewing with ground coffee, while others prefer brewing with ESE (Easy Serving Espresso) pods. Both have their benefits, with ground coffee letting you control tamp pressure and grind fineness, and pods eliminating the need for grinding and dosing. The Cuisinart EM-200 Espresso Machine comes with a single shot, double shot, and ESE pod filter baskets, so you can choose whatever option is best for you.
A powerful pump plays a large factor in proper espresso extraction. When too little pressure is created during the brewing process, you don’t get the rich layer of crema on top of your shots. The EM-200 Espresso Machine has a 15 bar pump, ensuring you’ll always get consistent and crema-topped results.
Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water
Stainless Steel Frothing Wand
With the Cuisinart EM-200 on your kitchen counter, cappuccinos, lattes, and other café-style drinks are just moments away. This machine features a stainless steel frothing wand that’s easy to clean and maintain. With the included frothing cup and a little practice, you’ll be frothing and steaming in no time. Just press the steaming button on the right side of the control panel, and the button will flash to let you know the boiler is heating up to steam temperature. When the light becomes steady, simply immerse the tip of the steam wand in cold milk, and turn the steaming knob on the right side of the machine.
When you want to enjoy hot chocolate, tea, or an Americano, the Cuisinart EM-200 can dispense hot water from the steam wand. Just turn the steam wand to the hot water icon when the machine is at brewing temperature, and then turn it back when your desired amount of hot water has been dispensed.
