Whether for a ristretto, an espresso, or a café crème, the Poemia Class's 15-bar pump pressure and patentedportafilter makes optimal use of the brewing pressure to produce a true Italian espresso. With every use, the Poemia Class creates hazel-brown crema and extracts the ideal flavor from the coffee. The portafilter also has an Easy Serving Espresso (ESE) pod adapter with filter basket, which enables you to use prepackaged, single-serve shots.
It's simple to prepare traditional frothed milk with the Poemia Class's steam nozzle--just insert the Pannarello steam wand into the milk and froth until it reaches the consistency you prefer. Control lights show when your Poemia Class is ready to brew or steam, so you can prepare a cappuccino or latte macchiato with the press of a button.
The nozzle is also a convenient source of hot water for tea, hot chocolate, and other beverages. The frothing tip can easily be removed for cleaning.
This compact espresso machine features high-quality stainless steel housing for an ergonomic design you can enjoy every day. Whether you're refilling the instant coffee and water or emptying the filter and drip tray, you'll have convenient, direct access to all containers.
Conveniently store cups and glasses right on the machine and warm them up before use. Warming the cup helps develop the flavor of your coffee and keeps crema firm. The machine uses heat from the boiler to warm cups, adding to the machine's efficient operation.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you fit the red gasket into the portafilter?
You can take the whole inside assembly out and put in your basket, tamp and run it unpressurized. It pulls a much better shot if you have a good grind and beans.
If you use pods, does the liquid come out of the filter unit? I followed instructions, but it leaks out.
if you are using the right size ESE pods, you shouldn't have any problems, it should work as well as when you use ground coffee; if you didn't have any problems with the ground coffee, maybe you should try a different pod.
Should I use regular coffee beans or the dry ones for espresso machines?
This machine does not grind coffee beans. You just load it up with ground coffee or those paper pods (not Keurig).
