When waking up in the morning, the first thing that usually happens is that a hot beverage is made. Some prefer coffee, and some prefer espresso. Most people think the only place where someone can get an espresso is at a coffee shop, but it can be made at home. What's even better is that the espresso can be made with the same machine that makes coffee. Filter coffee and espresso combination machines combine the technology necessary to make two different drinks and makes the best of both worlds in one neat package.
The standard coffee maker is familiar to most people, using a drip brew system where water is heated in a tank and directed over a filter with coffee grounds in it. The water passes through the grounds to make coffee and it drips into a coffee pot. Those who have been to a coffee shop will recognize the format of the espresso side of the device. It works in a similar manner to the coffee maker, but different enough to produce a different beverage in terms of strength. Each one will be great in the morning and anyone will be able to appreciate the need for a machine that can make both.
