Q. How should I care for my espresso machine?

A. After every brewing session, run a shot of water through the machine to keep it clean. Sediment can build up through repeated use.

If your machine permits it, you should also perform a clean water backflush every 10 to 15 shots. This requires you to put a stopper in your portafilter to reverse the water flow.

A. It’s a powerful combination of espresso and strong drip coffee. It can be drunk with our without milk or creamer.

Q: Why is espresso the finest coffee drink?

A: I think that several factors make espresso the finest coffee drink: the high pressure of the extraction process enhances the aroma and the body of the coffee. The extraction time plays an important role in making a good espresso, as the right timing will prevent an over-extracted or under-extracted brew. Right water temperature is (92 to 96 degrees Celsius) is also key factor that affects the taste. So we can say that espresso is the finest drink because it is the harmonious combination of several elements controlled at a perfect level.

Q: What exactly is crema and why is it so important?

A: Crema is the flavorful thick layer of foam that sits on top of the coffee liquid. When you sip the drink and break this layer, you enjoy all of the different elements and flavors that go into the espresso in one. Why? Because Crema is an emulsion of air, gases, water and coffee that occurs as a result of the pressurized extraction process. It’s one of the most essential elements in espresso to gives the drink an aroma and body.

Q: How often should you clean an espresso machine, and are there any best practices?

A: You should clean the espresso machine every day to avoid any residue left behind; this residue can easily cause over-extraction or staleness, resulting in a burnt taste. Many espresso machines also feature easily removable parts, making them easy to wipe down with a cloth. Taking care of your machine is a simple task that will enhance your espresso experience, making it better everyday.
