Featuring an advanced pump boiler system and two filter choices, the commercial-grade Capresso EC PRO Professional Espresso & Cappuccino Machine is designed for brewing café-quality espresso and cappuccino at home.
The EC PRO is equipped with two filter options that allow coffee lovers at any skill level to prepare barista-quality espresso. The heavy-duty double spout espresso filter, designed for beginners, is convenient and easy to use, brewing one or two espressos at a time. The filter’s sieve helps produce an ideal brew quickly and easily, by creating optimal pressure without having to perfect tamp or grind size.
Ideal for expert home brewers and those looking to improve their barista skills, the EC PRO’s bottomless espresso filter lets users brew barista style. Unlike the double spout filter sieve, the pressure in this sieve is built up based on grind size and tamp. The bottomless sieve produces a richer, thicker crema and a hotter brew because the espresso has less contact with the surfaces of the portafilter.
The bottomless filter lets users look and learn. Its brewing process is visible, allowing the user to analyze technique and make adjustments accordingly.
The EC PRO features an advanced pump boiler system that maintains a reservoir of hot water at the perfect espresso brewing temperature for a faster, hotter and more consistent brew. Unlike Thermoblock brewing systems, which only heat two to three ounces of water at a time, this pump boiler system keeps six ounces of water at the ideal brewing temperature, for a consistent temperature in every shot with hotter and faster steaming of milk.
Featuring heavy-duty stainless steel construction, the EC PRO comes with a 42-ounce removable water container, easy-to-read indicator lights for On/Off and Coffee/Steam, a handy coffee scoop/tamper, and a high-pressure commercial style power frother to create perfect microfoam for cappuccinos and lattes.
The stainless steel cup warming tray and drip tray add functionality and visual appeal. The drip tray removes easily for cleaning.
