|For a long time, the range of machines open to those who wanted to make real coffee at home was really limited.
Based on the equipment seen in coffee bars and [url=http://www.mxitcms.com/abercrombie/]abercrombie milano[/url] bistros, the home espresso maker used ground coffee. You had to follow a set procedure:-
1.It was crucial to be sure that the coffee was perfectly ground. Not fine enough and the coffee was tasteless – and you didn’t get the characteristic crema that is so key on a good espresso. Too finely-ground and the pressure would not be adequate to drive the water through. And for best results the coffee had to be very uniformly ground as well. To [url=http://www.teatrodeoro.com/hollisterde.php]hollister[/url] get the best results, you had to buy a high-quality coffee grinder, preferably of the burr-grinder sort.
2.The exact quantity of coffee then had to be added to the hopper and tamped down very accurately and evenly. Failure to do this right gave you poor results as the water didn’t flow evenly through the grounds.
3.Hot water, at the right temperature and pressure was then forced through the [url=http://www.teatrodeoro.com/hollisterde.php]hollister deutschland[/url] coffee to give you your espresso.
4.There was generally a steam wand to froth milk for cappuccino.
5.Cleaning was essential, as coffee can easily be spoiled by old grounds or other dregs left in [url=http://www.ktbruce.co.uk/mulberrysale.php]mulberry outlet[/url] the machine.
Nevertheless, there’s little doubt that once you had learned to do the process properly, you ended up with excellent, authentic espresso.
A bean-to-cup machine goes a long way to getting rid of some of the inconvenience. and the correct quantity is measured out and ground finely. The right amount of coffee was automatically added to the holder, tamped down and the coffee brewed as before. These machines work well, but a high-quality one will be pretty expensive and take up a lot of room on the counter.
Set against this, [url=http://www.par5club.com/louboutin.php]louboutin[/url] a pod-based machine has obvious advantages:-
1.The coffee comes in sealed pods, ready ground and measured [url=http://www.sandvikfw.net/shopuk.php]hollister outlet sale[/url] out.
2.Instead of having to measure and handle the coffee grounds, [url=http://www.ktbruce.co.uk/barbourjackets.php]barbour.co.uk[/url] you [url=http://www.ktbruce.co.uk/hollisteroutlet.php]hollister[/url] just insert the pod into the top of the coffee maker.
3.Press a button and the machine does [url=http://www.tagverts.com/barbour.php]barbour online shop[/url] the rest – the right amount of water is forced through the coffee in the pod and the coffee flows out of the outlet.
4.When finished, you just discard the pod, thus getting rid of the need [url=http://www.jeremyparendt.com/Hollister-b5.php]hollister france[/url] for fiddly cleaning.
5.You can generally buy a wide assortment of different coffee pods – and you are not restricted to coffee of course. The same machine can make tea or hot chocolate for example.
It can be argued that the results are not in [url=http://www.ktbruce.co.uk/hollisteroutlet.php]hollister outlet[/url] truth as good as from a traditional espresso maker; that may be so. These machines do not have steam wands either – they produce a form of foamed milk from the pods, which many think does not taste so good.
But the ease is remarkable. [url=http://www.thehygienerevolution.com/hollister.php]hollister[/url] I think that many espresso makers lie unused because of the bother of operating and cleaning them – a pod machine will be used on a regular basis. Their versatility and ease-of-use is a clue to their popularity.
