Typhoon Red Moka Pot

RedMoka.jpg

Need to make a statement with that moka pot sitting on the counter top? Well the Typhoon Red Moka Pot may just be the bright “Good Morning” wake-up call that you are looking for. The 3-cup size is about enough for a regular sized cup of coffee if you like to cut it with milk, or several shots of espresso. While I generally like to use a pump-driven espresso maker at home, I love moka pots for their ability to bring easy and high quality coffee on the road with me.

Refrigerator with in-door Espresso Maker

whirlpoolespresso.jpgNow here’s a refrigerator that would be right at home in the SingleServeEspresso.com kitchen, the new side-by-side refrigerator that has a built-in espresso machine in the door. Of course, there is a water filter so that your espresso tastes great. The unit can dispense espresso from pods and hot water; no real word on its true capabilities as an espresso maker. Let’s hope that they put as much work into designing the espresso maker as they did the refrigerator; I am not so sure you’ll be happy with a broken espresso maker in the middle of your refrigerator door, right?

The Whirlpool Espresso Maker Refrigerator is coming to the UK in 2008.

Big Factory Cafe Macchina

CoffeeFactory1

coffeefactory2
What a great look at a new espresso machine; the Pierre Ittner Designed machine feels fun and fanciful, right out of a Dr Suess book. The translation appears to say that the unit starts with coffee whole bean and milk to deliver your favorite espresso drink easily using its touchscreen. The unit has a ceramic grinder and water filtration to help deliver high quality espresso...

I think The Cat in the Hat should deliver each and every one of these.

Super Automatic Espresso Machine Cleaner

JoGlo.jpg
Ok, so the shine is off the super-automatic and you’ve pumped through a few hundred of your favorite drinks through your machine and while the drinks are still awesome, you really do need to clean the machine more than just emptying out the spend grounds bin and wiping the milk off the steam wand…. Mineral deposits can accumulate in the system and either clog up the machine or at least make things taste bad with off crazy off flavors. On top of that, residual coffee oils, that age and can go rancid can also affect how your espressos are tasting these days.

So while some machines come with a few tablets tht are good for one cleaning, you can also try out Joe Glo espresso machine cleaner. It cleans your machine up by removing those coffee oils and helps with mineral deposits too.

Jura capresso Impressa S9 Avantgarde

JuraCapressoS9.jpg
With its beautiful lines, the Jura Capresso S9 Avantgarde is sure to impress. It’s a classically built super automatic that will take whole beans, milk and water and turn them into espressos, cappuccinos, or lattes at the push of a button. However, this is no common super automatic, in fact it’s certified for home and commercial use. Anyway, it comes fully equipped and ready to perform as it has two stainless thermoblock heating systems, ready to brew and froth, and four pre-set beverage buttons that you can use to get you consistent quality time after time. If you want to add your own touch, you can program your own personal button and get a consistent “My Drink” brewed for you easily day after day. The S9 Avantgarde also has a frothing system that includes the ability to use the regular frothing/steaming wand, as well as the new Auto-Cappuccino. The Auto-Cappuccino sucks in milk at the push of a button, heats it up to the desired temperature and froths it.

Like most Super Autos it has a warming tray, ample water in its reservoir (96 ounce), a by-pass doser for using pre-ground coffee of another variety (think de-caf), whole bean hopper that feeds an adjustable burr grinder, and a spent grounds dump bin.

Most Expensive Espresso Machine at Amazon

NuovaSimonelliEspresso.jpg
The most expensive Espresso Maker selling at Amazon these days is this beauty that is well equipped to handle crowds. This is not some personal unit that gets turned on for a single espresso every day; it’s made to pump out espressos one after another. With a 3.5 liter capacity in its boiler, it may take a few minutes to warm up, but it won’t be drained any time soon. The unit is of course push button, which starts the grinder, then tamps and pulls the espresso. If you punched up the order for a cappuccino or a latte, the unit can draw milk from its built in milk refrigerator and steams or froths it accordingly.

Yours for around $15,000.

Joey Roth Moka Pot

JRothMokaPot.jpg
The Moka Pot transformed… Joey Roth has envisioned a way to make the Moka pot cubic with a nod to the East with this moka pot that locks with a piece of bamboo. The unit takes on the classic two half design that the moka pot is known for, but injects the feel of eastern elegance with the bamboo accents.

Like any other Moka pot, fill the bottom with water, add ground coffee to the filter, and then heat until the water boils up through the grounds leaving you with espresso in the top chamber. Remove the wooden lid and use the bamboo handle to pour from the corner of the top chamber.

Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine

saecoSTGSTGiroSuper.jpg

The Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine is one of those high end whole bean to cup machines that makes sipping a great espresso a push button experience. May not be for those who prefer to roll up your sleeves and get into the process, but it can certainly offer flexibility to fine tune your cup of espresso with precision and control. The Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine offers you the ability to put whole beans into the top, push a button and the unit grinds, tamps, and pumps at high pressure the heated water needed to pull a wonderful cup of espresso.

The Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine is a stylish design that incorporates a dial up front which offers you the ability to dial up or down the amount of espresso that is pulled, from a short ristretto to a full 7 ounces. The unit can also dose 7 to 10.5 grams of coffee per pull, making for loads of combinations. The Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine has a ceramic grinder, which is apparently a lot quieter than metal burr grinders.

I have used several Super Autos and it’s actually fairly easy to dial in a good espresso with these and get a nice shot. What can be difficult is to wing it and try to deviate and get a nice 7 ounce cup of coffee when you are used to pulling espresso shots.

The unit features a 57 ounce water reservoir, and of course a grounds bin to hold the spent coffee pucks. To further improve the taste of your coffee, the unit has an integrated water filter.

The Saeco S-TG-ST Giro Super Automatic Espresso Machine is available at Amazon

Illy Hyper Espresso

illycapmaker.jpg

Illy has announced a new format for brewing espresso, that they seem to indicate will be a great way to extract the very best espresso from excellent blends that will be available to you in their new Hyper (iper) Espresso Capsule system. Illy has long offered Espresso Pods for all ESE Makers along with their own Francis!Francis! machines. To use the new capsules, two new machines will be introduced, the Francis! Francis! X7 and X8 for the spring of 2008. The capsules will reportedly cost $0.75 each, which is a big jump up from the $0.49 for Nespresso capsules that are used in Nespresso Machines like the Essenza C100 machine.

At Illy - New illy iperEspresso machines.
