Capresso Espresso/Cappuccino Machine Review!

Spectacular Gift Shopping Guide!!!
Day 7!!

Okay, you all probably knew I couldn't get through a gift guide without at least one of the gift ideas being related to coffee! Well, here it is, and it's a great gift idea-an Espresso/Cappuccino Machine from Capresso!
Capresso generously sent me their 4-Cup Espresso and Cappuccino Machine for review. This machine makes it sooo easy to make delicious-tasting cappuccinos, lattes and espressos at home. It features a coffee/steam selector that provides easy-control over the brewing strength, so you get to choose how strong you want your espresso. The frother swivels for easy access, and you can also control the steam pressure with a little knob.With this machine you can make up to 4 cup espressos, in under 5 minutes! 

My first time using this I was scared I would mess it up somehow and ruin the espresso. The directions are so easy to follow, though, and my drink turned out perfect! Even steaming/frothing the milk was an easy experience (and the kids love watching when I do it!).  I've made espressos and cappuccinos with this now, but my favorite is an Iced Mochaccino I found a recipe for. It is delicious! I love that with this Capresso machine, I can make coffee drinks at home, and I can make one whenever I feel like it...I don't have to run out to Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks! All the kids are begging for me to find a frappuccino recipe to try next :)

This wonderful espresso/cappuccino maker features:

  • "4-cup high-tech steam/boiler system
  • Boiler cap with built-in safety valve
  • Unique Coffee/Steam Selector allows you to move from coffee to steaming and to adjust coffee strength to your taste
  • Swivel frother with adjustable steam output allows you to steam large or small amounts of milk in seconds for frothing (Cappuccinos) and steaming (Lattes)
  • The powerful steam/boiler reduces warm-up time to under 2 minutes, producing 2 to 4 cappuccinos or lattes in under 5 minutes
  • Convenient filter holder with thumb guard for safe use
  • Illuminated on/off switch
  • Dishwasher safe glass carafe
  • Removable drip tray for easy clean-up"

Definitely the perfect gift for the coffee-lover in your life!! I give Capresso and this Espresso/Cappuccino Machine a 10 star rating!

In addition to the Espresso and Cappuccino Machine, they offer Coffee Grinders, Coffee Makers, Frothers, Water Kettles, and a PerfecTea (something my Mom would love :)
