Owning the Capresso Cafe Pro Professional Espresso & Cappuccino Machine
Designed as an advanced entry-level espresso machine, Capresso's Cafe Pro has the build quality and the brewing features that make it the perfect choice for anybody looking to perfect their espresso technique. Housed in heavy duty, die-cast stainless steel, the Cafe Pro looks good and feels tough, making it the ideal fit for a modern kitchen. At a mere 8" wide, this is a machine that has no trouble fitting into even a crowded kitchen. Right off the bat, you'll notice that the Cafe Pro ships with two kinds of portafilters; a double spout pressurized, and a bottomless commercial style. Unlike most machines which typically ship with two of the same style portafilters, the Cafe Pro anticipates that your skill at espresso brewing will improve over time.
The pressurized filter creates artificial back pressure while brewing, making it easier to pull crema rich shots of espresso, even with coffee that isn't ground quite as finely or quite as fresh. The commercial style filter challenges you to perfect your technique to pull better shots. Factors like grind fineness and proper tamping will ultimately determine whether you pass or fail, and the bottomless spout makes it easier to identify unevenness in your extraction. For frothing milk the Cafe Pro is equipped with a commercial style steam wand, unlike a number of machines in the same price range. Commercial style wands require a bit of patience to master, but are capable of producing superior quality micro foam for specialty drinks like lattes and cappuccinos. Commercial wands are also ideal for texturing milk when pouring latte art.
Dimensions: 8" W x 10.5" D x 11.5" H
