Owning the Cuisinart EM-100 Espresso Machine

The Cuisinart EM-100 Espresso Machine is a great combination of stainless steel style and easy operation at an affordable price. This versatile espresso machine can brew using ground coffee or ESE (Easy Serve Espresso) pods, and pulls a great shot thanks to its powerful 15 bar pump. A cup heating tray on the top of the machine will make sure you have plenty of warm cups on hand, making it great for entertaining. With the Cuisinart EM-100 Espresso Machine, you can also create cappuccinos, lattes, and more using its stainless steel steam wand and included milk frothing pitcher. A large, removable 53oz water reservoir means there’s plenty of time between refills, and a removable drip tray helps make cleaning easy. With the Cuisinart EM-100, you have the choice to brew using ground coffee or pods. This machine comes with single shot, double shot, and ESE pod baskets, so you have a variety of brewing options to meet your needs. Brewing with ground coffee is great for those learning the art of espresso making, while brewing with pods reduces clean up and ensures consistent results.

On the front of the Cuisinart EM-100 Espresso Machine are the power button, a heating indicator light, and 2 control knobs. The large function knob in the center controls brewing and steaming/hot water output, and features icons for ease-of-use. The smaller knob above the power button lets you select whether you would like steam or hot water dispensed when you turn the center knob, and also heats the boiler to proper steaming temperature. Pressure plays a large role in a great espresso extraction, and helps to achieve a layer of rich crema on top of your shots. Without proper pressure, espresso can taste weak. The Cuisinart EM-100 Espresso Machine features a powerful 15 bar pump that ensures you’ll get consistent (and delicious) results every time you brew.

For making creamy cappuccinos, lattes, and other café-style drinks, the Cuisinart EM-100 comes with a stainless steel frothing wand and frothing pitcher. To produce steam, turn the small steam/hot water knob to the steam icon and wait for the boiler to heat to the proper temperature. The red heating light will turn off once the proper temperature is reached, and when you turn the center function knob to the steam icon on the right, steam will be dispensed from the frothing wand. When you’re done frothing, simply turn the center knob to the off position. If you want to enjoy tea, hot chocolate, or an Americano, the EM-100 can dispense hot water right from the steam wand.
