Capresso EC Pro Espresso Machine
The EC Pro is the ideal choice for brewing cafe quality espresso and cappuccino at home. It features an an advanced pump boiler system and 2 portafilter options.
The EC Pro comes with 2 portafilters: a heavy-duty dual spout portafilter and its very own bottomless portafilter.
The dual spout portafilter is designed for beginners. It is convenient and easy to use and allows for brewing 1 -2 espressos at a time. The pressurized filter basket helps produce an ideal brew quickly and easily, by creating optimal pressure without having a perfect tamp or grind fineness.
The bottomless portafilter helps improve your barista skills. Unlike the pressurized filter basket on the dual spout portafilter, the pressure and resulting cup will rely on your tamp and grind fineness. When you find the optimal tamp pressure and grind fineness, you will produce a richer, thicker crema and a hotter brew because the espresso has less contact with the surfaces of the portafilter.
