Espressione 3-in-1 Coffeemaker & Espresso Machine
I’m not big on espresso. I don’t dislike them but I absolutely love a great latte. I had a coffeemaker that worked fine so I went searching for an espresso maker that made good froth. My definition of a good froth is when it has stiff peaks almost like meringue. I spotted the Espressione 3-in-1 Coffeemaker & Espresso Machine but I hesitated at first.
I had never heard of this brand and I wanted to do some research on the web to see if I could find out about it. The last thing I needed was to buy a combo machine and have it be a dud.
I didn’t find out anything that the manufacturer didn’t want me to know and that did not include anything about the frothing ability. After a month more of looking, I gave in and bought the Espressione 3-in-1 Coffeemaker & Espresso Machine.

The price was so low that I was concerned that the Espressione 3-in-1 Coffeemaker & Espresso Machine was cheaply made. I couldn’t find an espresso machine alone at the price I paid. As soon as I got home, I set it up and proceeded to test the one part that would convince me I had made a wise decision. I sure did. I used regular milk and cocktail shaker filled a little over half way. The thickness was perfect. I used a spatula to pull the froth up to see if it would peak without breaking down. I was so pleased that I took the risk on this machine.

Since I bought it, I have taken it to the school bizarre where I sold coffee and lattes to help raise money for the school supply fund to help the teachers. Not once did it slow down or get clogged up. I made coffee on one side and lattes on the other. The Espressione 3-in-1 Coffeemaker & Espresso Machine made it easy to keep up with the orders. I don’t know if we made a lot at my stand, but we made friends.
I told you that I was concerned it was cheaply made because I had never heard of an Espressione 3-in-1 Coffeemaker & Espresso Machine. As soon as I made a pot of coffee, I knew that I should not have been concerned. The filter basket is stainless steel – not plastic! If a manufacturer is going to go to the trouble of making the filter basket of stainless, I’m sure the inner workings are just as well made.
The LED screen is set in a perfect place for viewing. I don’t have to bend down to set the automatic starting time so I wake to freshly made coffee. The buttons on the settings seem small but they are raised enough so that you can push them in and know that you did. The compact size of the Espressione 3-in1 Coffeemaker & Espresso Machine and the way the coffee pot tucks into the machine leaving room to make espresso is very, very handy.
Most coffee machines today have an automatic shut-off. The Espressione 3-in-1 Coffeemaker & Espresso Machine has one too. The difference is that I can control how long it’s going to be before it shuts down. I choose 3 hours since that’s about the length of time it is before I stop drinking coffee. There is nothing I do not like about this combination machine.
