Enjoy delicious espresso, cappuccinos, lattes, and other coffee drinks from the comfort of home with this super-automatic espresso machine. The unit's digital touch-screen control panel offers programmable menu settings that allow for setting the clock, start time, and automatic shutoff, as well as for adjusting the water hardness and temperature, the coffee strength, and the amount of coffee in the cup. Four one-touch buttons make consistently perfect beverages practically foolproof--choose from latte, cappuccino, macchiato, or hot milk. A 27-ounce removable milk container comes included, and the amounts of frothed/steamed milk and coffee can be adjusted to accommodate individual preferences. The unit also provides a hot-water spout for guests who would prefer to cozy up to a cup of herbal tea or instant hot cocoa. Best of all, the espresso machine accommodates both ground coffee and whole coffee beans thanks to its built-in conical burr grinder with adjustable fineness settings.
