Capresso Espresso and Cappuccino

If you are like me, then you must have your coffee everyday. I have used every single machine, and recently I fell in love with the Capresso EC100. LOVE everything about this. I was using a regular coffee pot. Grind my coffee beans, and then would put enough coffee in the filter for 10 cups and brew so it would be read for my husband and I in the morning. Eventually, the coffee kept tasting more and more watered down. I could not figure it out! Still to this day, I'm not able to figure out what is wrong with it. I received the Capresso in the mail, and the EC100 is an amazing Espresso machine!

So even though I do have to make each cup versus making 10 cups with a regular coffee machine. The flavor of the coffee is so much better, and strong! I need a bold flavor in my coffee. Mix it with my french vanilla creamer and mmmmmmmm, so delicious! It is simple to use too! I brew the coffee and my husband set a timer to make the best espresso. Then I put the creamer in my cup and use the steamer to warm it up. Nothing worse then adding hot coffee to cold creamer! What do you end up with? A cold espresso, so not tasty.
