Home-brewed coffee has come on leaps and bounds in recent years. You can now recreate the taste and pleasure of espresso at home thanks to innovative automatic or semi-automatic “bean-to-cup” coffee makers.
We are talking about a real ‘barista-style coffee experience’, using fresh whole beans purchased in small quantities from high-end specialists to allow you to brew espresso to your personal preferences or to whip up a great cappuccino just like they do at your favourite local café, ready in a few seconds but from the comfort of your own kitchen.
Thanks to technological advances and increasingly attractive design, coffee-shop espresso can be enjoyed at home in just a few easy steps, without a large time commitment and without the need for barista training or the unnecessary waste generated by coffee pods.
Fill up the lower part of the coffee maker with natural mineral water, staying below the safety valve. With a teaspoon arrange the medium-roughly ground coffee level into the filter, without pressing it. When closed, put the coffee maker on low heat with the cover slightly open, as to prevent the vapour to stagnate on the drink. As soon as the coffee comes out, turn off the heat. Before serving, stir the coffee with a teaspoon. High pressure and warmth are the fundamental parameters that bring the drink to be thick and intense. Fine scents are dropped at the expense of a toasted aroma, almost burned, making the taste being enhanced.
