If you love sipping espresso-based drinks, try the Jura-Capresso 4-c. Espresso and Cappuccino Machine. Making your espresso at home can save you a lot of money if you go to coffee shops regularly. This powerful machine heats up in under 2 minutes, so you won't have to wait long to enjoy your morning latte. Your espresso will begin dripping into the included glass carafe in just minutes. As your espresso begins brewing, steam builds up in the machine's boiler. Once your espresso reaches the bottom line of the carafe, switch the selector from "coffee" to "steam." The frother has built up the perfect amount of steam to froth your milk for a cappuccino or to steam milk for a latte. Then, switch the selector back to "coffee" to finish brewing your espresso. This unique steam boiler feature allows you to froth your milk when the maximum amount of steam has accumulated, so this machine is incredibly efficient even when you want to steam a large amount of milk. In under five minutes, you can make four shots of espresso, four lattes or four cappuccinos. Feel free to make some of these drinks with double shots of espresso. If you like your espresso strong or weak, you'll appreciate the sliding control that adjusts the strength of the espresso. The filter holder that comes with the machine features a thumb guard, so you can use it safely. Because the drip tray is removable, you can empty and clean it easily. All the removable parts - including the filter holder, drip tray and glass carafe - are dishwasher safe.
