I've been shopping aroud for an espresso maker and it's not as easy I thought. There are all the different models with different features: one handle, two handles, chrome, stainless steal, single pressure, double pressure, steam pump, electric pump. You get the picture. So, I'm glad I found this article about some sound questions you can ask to make the process of selecting the perfect brewmaster, easier.
Espresso machines run the gamut from simple stovetop models (such as those you might have seen in an Italian restaurant) to steam machines (steam pressure pushes hot water through the ground coffee) to electric-pump versions (they produce the best coffee and. tend to cost the most).
