The Capresso 4-Cup Espresso & Cappuccino Machine features an exclusive Coffee/Steam selector that makes it easy to control both brewing and steaming, allowing the user to adjust coffee strength to their personal taste. The steam boiler principle of the Capresso 4 Cup Espresso & Cappuccino Machine heats up water and then starts forcing the hot water through the filter holder and brewing espresso coffee into the glass carafe. During this time steam starts collecting in the boiler. When the coffee has reached the bottom line marking on the glass carafe, you can stop the brewing and switch to frothing milk. At that time the machine has created maximum amount of steam. When you finish frothing, turn the selector switch back to the coffee brewing position.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where is this machine made?
Where else? China.
Can you use cappuccino pods with this machine or do you use coffee beans.
You use coffee beans ground specifically for espresso, which is finer than the grind you would use for regular coffee machines. But no, it does not take the pre-filled pods. You measure coffee grinds into the little basket.
Is this espresso maker a "pump system? What is the difference between a bar system and a true steam pressure machine?
No. It has only one reservior in which the water is turned into steam. The steam is then used 1) to blast the ground coffee beans and 2) to froth the milk, if the user wants to do that. It is simple and effective and much cheaper to produce than the "pump-system" type machine, which costs a lot more, because the pump-type machine has one reservior for the blasting of the coffee grounds and another for the frothing of the milk (they are at slightly different temperatures).

To avoid a burnt coffee taste, stop the brewing before all the hot water has passed through the filter holder. Review user manual page# 9 for trouble shooting steps.
