Hamilton beach espresso and cappuccino maker is the perfect kitchen companion for coffee lovers who want to easily make coffee-quality espresso with a minimum of effort. Moreover, the patented slide & lock technology means this espresso maker is incredibly easy to use.

How To Use Hamilton Beach Espresso Maker?

Simply choose either finely ground espresso or, for quicker preparation, a pod; add a tablespoon of espresso, or a single pod for each shot, into the portafilter and brew with a simple flick of a lever. Unlike other high-tech coffee machines that can be difficult to operate and cost thousands, the Hamilton Beach Espresso Maker has patented slide & lock technology that makes achieving cafe-quality results practically effortless.

NOTE: Always use cold water to make coffee. Warm water or other liquids could damage your espresso maker. If the water from the reservoir is heated, it should take less than 5 seconds for the espresso to start pouring. A full demitasse will take between 15 and 20 seconds.

A teacup and average size mug will comfortably fit under the spout but a travel mug will be too large and when the portafilter is locked in place, there will be about 4 ½ inches from the drip tray to the spout. Worth mentioning, that the product is BPA-free.
