Capresso espresso machines use extremely high pressure and fast brewing time to ensure you get maximum flavor. Their process is better at preventing the extraction of bitter oils so you can have the most flavorful, smooth espresso. Equally important is the "crema." This foamy top layer of espresso coffee locks in the fine aromatics and light flavors that register on the palate. With Capresso espresso machines, the grinding, tamping and pressure work perfectly together so your espresso always features "crema."
