Smeg Espresso Coffee Machine Exposé: Your Best Shot
Where do you go for good coffee? Your café hangout? The hotel lobby? Your favorite fine dining restaurant? What if you can get professional barista-style beverages from your kitchen?
With the Smeg espresso coffee machine, you can enjoy real espresso bar taste and aroma right in your own home. Designed in Italy, this award-winning appliance is guaranteed to give you a proper espresso, using both ground coffee and coffee pods.
When you unbox the Smeg espresso coffee machine, you will find three filters: for one cup, for two cups, and for paper pods. It also comes with a measuring scoop tamper.
Operating it is a no-brainer, the control panel has only three buttons. Push the first one to get a single cup espresso, the second to get a double, and the third to activate the steam function. The same buttons adjust the machine settings such as coffee temperature and quantity, water hardness, and automatic shut-off time, to your preference.
The Smeg espresso coffee machine is equipped with an impressive thermoblock heating system which makes precise water temperature control possible. This sophisticated technology is responsible for faster switch-on times, it takes a mere 40 seconds for the Smeg espresso coffee machine to warm up. That’s really quick compared to lining up at coffee shops or ordering from restaurants. And its 15-bar pump pressure - way above the industry standard of 9 – takes care of pushing hot water through the coffee grounds, producing perfect espresso results.
In just 12 seconds, the Smeg espresso coffee machine is able to bring itself up to steam temperature and get the milk frother ready for use. The combination of steam, air, and milk creates a dense creamy foam for your café latte, Americano, cappuccino, and flat white, among others. The adjustable milk frother wand is key to elevating your beverages with a layer of thick foam which you can use as base for fancy latte drawings. And if you’re using tall glassware for your concoctions, all you have to do is remove the stainless steel drip tray base of the Smeg espresso coffee machine to make room.
To consistently operate at the optimal level, regular cleaning is required, this includes descaling. Frequency depends on several factors which you really need not worry about because the machine will alert you when it’s time to clear its tubes and passageways of limescale. The Smeg espresso coffee machine is user-friendly down to maintenance.
In terms of style, the Smeg coffee espresso machine is unparalleled, it’s almost like a piece of art. Its design has been lauded by the most exacting critics. In 2017, it was recognized by GOOD DESIGN®, the oldest and the most prestigious awards program which is organized by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. For more than seven decades, GOOD DESIGN® has honored the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world. On the same year, the Smeg espresso coffee machine received The Red Dot Design Award which is given only to products that earn the judges’ approval for high design quality and innovation. The Red Dot Award: Product Design dates back to 1955.
With its iconic vintage aesthetics, you won’t hesitate to take the Smeg espresso coffee machine out of the kitchen and proudly display it in the dining area or flaunt it near your work space. It is available in black, cream, and in hues that make it stand out even more like red, pastel green, pink, and pastel blue.
