To conform the high standard of Italian espresso making, KitchenAid® has designed the Artisan™ Espress Maker in collaboration with Italian engineers.It is the response to the demand for a quick, freshly brewed, flavourful cup of coffee, based on forcing water under pressure through grinds of coffee.
For a perfect result, use only bottled, purified water. Do not forget to change the water in the tank often and refill the boilers after a long period of non-use. Do not use mineral water or distilled water as they can damage the espresso machine!
Also the water temperature and its consistency have a direct impact on the flavour of espresso. The dedicated dual boilers of the Artisan™ Espresso Machine prevent any adverse temperature fluctuations. The chrome-plated commercial –size brass brew group heats quickly and retains the heat perfectly.
Wait until the machine has reached the operating temperature ( ideal temperature is 90°-96°C)
When brewing multiple cups : use a towel to clean and dry the filter basket before filling the with coffee.
To maintain the proper brewing temperature, it’s important to keep the brew group warm.
Do not rinse the filter holder with cold tap water at this will cool it off. It’s best to wipe leftover grounds from filter with a towel.
Always keep the empty filter holder warm by attaching it to the brew head.
Only grind as much coffee as you intend to brew immediately to prevent losing any of the delicate flavours.
Dose and level the coffee correctly! Properly tamped coffee will produce an even extraction of coffee compounds.
Watch the brewing carefully! As it pours, a perfect espresso is a deep reddish brown with a thick texture like honey running off a spoon. It often forms what are called mouse-tails or tiger stripes. The best espresso takes about 20-25 seconds to brew.
