Compact and powerful, the Cuisinart EM-100 allows you to brew café-style drinks from the comfort of your own home. This is a great addition for anyone who is ready to have more control over the style of their espresso drinks, or is looking for an alternative to coffee house drinks.The EM-100 is housed in durable stainless steel for a finish both stylish and easy to keep clean. Its black plastic accents and red heating indicator light add an elegant, modern touch. Expect the same degree of quality and variety from your home espresso maker as you would out and about; the reasonably priced, reliable, and straightforward EM-100 is the right coffee maker for a budget-minded espresso lover.
Brewing - With 15 bars of pressure, the EM-100 has more than enough strength to pull every shot of espresso beautifully. Begin by heating a cup on the cup warmer, which stays warm using residual heat from the boiler, then brew the espresso into that cup – the heat from the cup will help preserve the espresso’s temperature so you can best experience its flavor. Your espresso should have a layer of golden crema on top – delizioso!
Steaming - Use the stainless steel wand to steam and foam milk for perfect cappuccinos, lattes, or hot chocolates with a little twist. The wand is also a hot water dispenser, so you can make tea, soup, or café americanos. Included with the EM-100 are instructions for brewing and frothing, as well as drink recipes. Have fun perfecting your barista skills and experimenting with different flavors and techniques.
Controls - Cuisinart is known for its simplicity, so this machine is great for users of all experience levels. The EM-100 does 3 main things: brews espresso, steams, and dispenses hot water. These 3 functions lead to a myriad of drinks and recipes, from teas and hot cocoas to cappuccinos and café americanos. Push the power button to turn the machine on, then turn the 2 clearly labeled function knobs to brew, steam, or dispense hot water. The heating indicator light illuminates when the machine is heating up, and turns itself off when the correct temperature is reached.
Compatibility - ESE (Easy Serve Espresso) pods are pre-ground, measured, and tamped coffee grounds sealed between 2 filter sheets for a mess free single serving espresso shot. The EM-100 is compatible with ESE pods, or you can stick with grinding and tamping yourself. There’s really no “preferred” method – a beginner might like the convenience of ESE pods, while others might like having more control over each shot of espresso. It’s not a bad idea to keep some ESE pods as a backup for those times when you need espresso in a hurry.
Cleaning and Maintaining your Machine - The portafilter holder has a locking mechanism that makes it easy to dispose of wet grounds after use. (Environmental tip: The grounds are biodegradable, so you can dispose of them in the compost pile instead of the garbage.) Your cups rest on a removable drip tray and cover that can be rinsed off or wiped down after use – this way, drips and spills don’t end up on the countertop. Just slide the drip tray out or remove the drip tray cover.
After using the stainless steel wand for foaming or steaming milk, wipe it off with a damp cloth and let a little water run through to clear out any milk residue and prevent the wand from getting clogged.
To descale – that is, to remove the calcium deposits that form over time on the brewing components – run descaling solution through the machine. How often you’ll have to descale depends on the hardness of your water. The instruction manual has detailed instructions on the steps you should take to keep your machine in optimum condition.
Water Reservoir - The 53 oz removable reservoir holds enough water for almost 25 shots of espresso. When it gets low, you can remove it and fill at the tap, or flip open the lid and pour in additional water.
Accessories - A tamping tool with measuring spoon, stainless frothing cup, and a detailed instruction manual are included.
