Those who know me know that coffee is a part of my identity. I need my daily cuppa in the morning. I don’t have too many cups, but I enjoy my coffee well brewed. I never miss an opportunity to have filter coffee when I visit darshinis. None of the instant stuff in a bottle works for me. I want the real thing — well brewed coffee. So, when I got my Hamilton Beach Espresso and Cappuccino Maker, I was super excited. Now, I could be a barista at home whipping up exquisite cappuccinos, lattes, mocha and what have you.
Here is the unboxing video of the sleek machine:
The product has stylish looks with its chrome and black structure. Its classy looks are complemented by exceptional functionality. It has a 15-bar Italian pump to extract better flavor. It is really simple to use. I hardly take about 5 minutes for a steaming-hot satisfying latte or cappuccino every morning. If you are an espresso drinker then you would love the punch this machine packs. I really have no complains. It has thoughtful features like a sturdy filter which uses both ground coffee and pods. It hasa removable container that collects any leftover brew. The steamer spout and filter are easy to clean. All in all, it is a machine you would love to use every single day and also to showoff your barista skills when your friends visits. It also saves you a ton of money on visiting cafes for your coffee fixes.
Here is the video of preparation of Cafe Latte using Hamilton Beach Espresso and Cappuccino maker:
1 espresso shot
3/4 cup cold milk (about 150-200 ml)
1 tsp. sugar
Recipe: Pull the shot as shown in the video. Froth/steam your milk first in your coffee mug. Add the espresso to your foaming, hot milk. Now add sugar. Stir and have it hot. It is delicious.
You could also get a flavored latte by adding vanilla or chocolate to your coffee. The possibilities are immense.
