Drip coffee maker: the most commonly used coffee maker. They are very simple to operate: very hot water from the coffee machine's tank drips slowly through a ground coffee filter and infused in a separate coffee thermos pot which keep the coffee warm.
Percolators: not so commonly used anymore, this coffee maker is similar to a kettle with water at the bottom a ground coffee holder at the top. As the water at the bottom warms up, it is pushed up through a vertical tube and then comes back down infusing through the coffee filter. The process continuously repeated and the result is a strong, full bodied coffee.
Espresso machines: designed for the first time in Italy before 1900, these machines produces a much stronger coffee than filtered machines. When the water reaches the right pressure and temperature, it is pushed through the ground coffee. Espresso machines can be steamed or pump operated (the latter frequently used nowadays in bars). It is typically operated with ground coffee but can also be bean-to-cup where coffee beans are directly grinded in the machine. Of course, you can also use ESE 44 paper coffee pods to make your life easier!
French coffee press: place the ground coffee (adjust the quantity to your desired strength) and hot water together, stir the coffee and leave it to brew for a few minutes. When ready, use the filter to push the ground coffee to the bottom.
Moka pot: very popular in Italy (and of course showing in our logo!), this machine was created in Italy around 1930. Water placed at the bottom get warmed up and steam pushed through ground coffee.
Pod coffee machines: an espresso machine where hot water is forced through disposable hermetically sealed coffee capsules and pods containing ground coffee. Coffee capsules are the easiest way to bring delicious espresso to your home or office.
Making a good espresso is a difficult art that involves many different tasks: coffee pods ensure that your espresso will always be fresh, consistently tasty, without all the work that is normally required to go from ground coffee beans to brewed coffee.
Coffee pods contain a pre-portioned serving of coffee, ready to be infused with water. They fit espresso machines conveniently so that your espresso will be ready by just pressing a button on your machine. Once your coffee has been brewed, our environmentaly friendly capsules and pods can be discarded, just like a teabag. So brewing is quick and easy, and no dirt at all is produced.
