What makes this semi-automatic espresso machine different? Unlike many other machines this one pre-infuses the coffee grounds for 2 seconds with a small amount of hot water, prior to the full extraction, resulting in maximum flavor extraction. It has programmable brewing functions, a water filtration system and you can use either preground beans or pods. It offers a consistent and precise water volume control. The adjustable portafilter allows you to switch from pods to ground and from single to double shots and back again with just a dial - no special adaptors required. The memory function means you can set your preferences for brewing. As with other semi-automatic espresso machines the boiler has a heating system designed not to overheat and operation of this machine is quite easy.
Espresso makers can be tricky but the Artese is designed to be less intimidating than most and, in addition to being easy to use, it brews excellent espresso. This pump espresso machine has an advanced Thermobloc system with 15 bars of pressure to consistently deliver delicious espresso, cappuccino, or latté drinks. Advanced electronic controls let you tailor the coffee to your taste. You may alter the water flow for each cycle so that the precise amount of espresso is brewed at the desired strength. A memo button sets your preferences so you can have your coffee just as you like it every day. The Artese is also one of the only pump machines with an adjustable portafilter, allowing you to accommodate varying amounts of espresso--a single versus a double shot--by simply turning a dial rather than having to change the filter as is required on most other machines. Additionally, the CLARIS water filtration system improves your coffee’s taste by filtering out 85 percent of the chlorine taste and other harmful minerals found in tap water.
For latté and cappuccino drinkers, the automatic frothing system is topnotch. Rather than frothing milk in a separate pitcher, the Artese holds up to 32 ounces (enough for eight cappuccinos) of milk in its own canister and dispenses foamed milk directly into your cup. You can also adjust the thickness of the froth to heavy for cappuccino and light for lattés. For safety, this espresso maker has an automatic shutoff feature that kicks in after the machine has been on for two hours. The Artese accepts ground coffee or ESE pods and is covered by a one-year warranty on parts and labor. --Cristina Vaamonde
