Espressione Elevates Upscale Home Espresso Makers

Espressione has developed several new upscale coffeemakers to meet the needs of consumers that wish to make espresso at home.

The Concierge fully automatic bean-to-cup espresso maker features a thin profile of 7-inches in width, allowing it to be used in a variety of settings from the kitchen to the home office. The unit is equipped with a thermoblock heating system that is said to allow the coffeemaker to begin the brewing process in 22 seconds. Other features include a frothing mechanism, an LED panel with one-touch keys, a hot water function to make tea and other hot beverages, and a coffee grinder with five fineness settings. It has a suggested retail price of $599.99.

A new stainless steel combination coffeemaker includes a pump espresso machine and 10-cup drip coffeemaker in one unit. Designed in Switzerland, the unit is equipped with a 19-bar high-pressure pump and thermoblock heating system and is compatible with ground coffee and all types of single-serve pods. It has an SRP of $299.99.

A stainless steel automatic pump espresso machine with the thermoblock system features a steam nozzle to froth milk for use with cappuccinos or lattes, a hot water function for use with tea and other hot beverages, a removable water tank and removable drip tray. The SRP is $249.99.
