Espresso

Making good espresso at home is like home roasting; it can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. People get really into espresso, probably because it is an intensely caffeinated beverage and there are so many different variables that contribute to making good espresso. We offer stovetop brewers, ibriks, and electric machines for espresso brewing. Tom put together the Espresso Pages as a guide to getting started and troubleshooting your technique.

  • Rancilio Miss Silvia Espresso Machine

    The Rancilio Silvia is a modern classic. I know what a terrible cliche that is, but in the case of the Silvia it is true! The Silvia is the most popular home espresso machine for purists. It is as simple and straightforward as its elegant, sparse design suggests. It has no crema-enhancing filters, no pre-sets, no siphon milk frothing system and no automated functions.

  • Rocket Giotto Evoluzione v2 Espresso Machine

    The Giotto Evoluzione V2 is a serious home espresso machine with proven design features and a very stylish appearance. In many ways it has a standard build for machines in its class..."standard" meaning great quality internal components and quality stainless steel housing. There's little here that is new or experimental; these are proven components. It gives you a choice of two water sources: you can switch from the included water reservoir or plumb directly to a water line with an easily accessed toggle in the back of the machine.

  • Gaggia Espresso Machine - Model: Baby Class

    In a something of a combination of the Baby and Classic - Gaggia now has a new model - the Baby Class. It is based on the same Gaggia Baby with an all stainless steel housing and a few other special features like a multi-position frothing wand. Oddly enough, the water reservoir is slightly smaller than the New Baby. Is it worth an extra $100 for the all stainless steel machine? It is up to you... Check out our Gaggia Details Page for more information.

  • Gaggia Espresso Machine - Model: New Baby, Black

    This is the original Gaggia home espresso machine in its newly redesigned Thermoset plastic housing. The Baby has been made for over 25 years and is a proven winner. It features the 3-way valve to release excess pressure, or to backflush-clean the machine (see note above about safety), as well as leaving behind a nice dry "puck" for easier cleanup. It has the same internals as the more expensive Classic model (which also has the 3-way valve), and a 64 oz. removable water reservoir. The good news is that unlike the other models, the water reservoir fills from the top! Overall this is a really attractive machine too (hey, looks count when it's out on your kitchen counter all the time). Along with all the other accessories, we also include your choice of 58mm tamper with the Baby (Gaggia includes a plastic tamper with the machine).
