How To Make The Perfect Espresso At Home
The Andrew James Espresso Coffee Machine is the ideal choice for anyone who wants to make barista style coffees at home. It can make one or two espresso shots at a time and includes a steam wand with adjustable pressure so you can heat your milk to create that velvety texture required by a Flat White, Mocha or Cafe Noisette. You can also use this as a cappuccino machine by adding foamed milk to your espresso.
This espresso machine includes both a single and double cup stainless steel filter that can be easily cleaned by rinsing under a running tap in between uses.
What Sort Of Coffee Should I Use?
This barista coffee machine doesn't include a grinder so you'll need to use pre-ground coffee. Try to find one that is marked for espresso making, of if grinding at home make sure it isn't too fine. If you like a stronger coffee go for a darker roast.
Cleaning Your Machine
The stainless steel housing of your cappuccino machine can be wiped down with a soft, damp cloth. The drip tray and water tank can be cleaned in warm soapy water.
You should aim to descale your machine once a month. Use a household descaling product in the water tank then follow the instructions in the product manual to complete the process.
