Primula’s Stainless Steel Espresso Coffee Maker allows you to brew authentic robust espresso right from your very own stovetop. This model quickly produces 6 Demitasse cups of rich, robust espresso. Stovetop espresso makers are popular because you can make quality espresso without the hassle of electric espresso machines. This espresso maker takes up very little counter space, is easy to use, and delivers 6 fantastic cups of fresh, aromatic espresso within minutes. Primula’s stainless steel model includes an oversized silicone handle which keeps the soft grip cool and allows for easier handling and pouring. The stainless steel design provides through and even heat distribution for enhanced flavor and aroma. Included in each box are easy step by step instructions so even a beginner can make a perfect cup of espresso the very first time. Simply fill the lower chamber with water, fill the filter with finely ground coffee, and place on medium heat atop your stove. Within minutes, delicious, bubbling cups of espresso will fill your pot. Remove from heat and enjoy, or add some milk for tasty cappuccinos, lattes or mochas. This espresso maker features a safety-release valve to control the water pressure, a major factor in controlling the quality of your espresso. If there is not enough pressure delivered to your coffee grounds, your espresso will be under-extracted, while the flip side of too much water pressure causes over-extraction. Primula’s design allows you to make the perfect shot of espresso without worry as the safety release valve controls the pressure at a set, pre-determined level. This sturdy espresso machine is carefully crafted of stainless steel and features a stay cool silicone knob on the flip-top lid for easy, safe dispensing. Dishwasher safe and easy to clean.
