Breville espresso machines are used to extract espresso coffee from ground coffee using internal heating mechanisms and filters, producing a cup of espresso. This process involves several steps that involve various filters, with the steps and considerations changing depending on the model of espresso machine.
Breville espresso machines produce cups of espresso, which are small yet concentrated cups of coffee mixed with other ingredients for flavor. Creating a cup of espresso requires the use of water hot enough to become steam and the manipulation of pressure in this steam to brew the coffee just right without burning it. Breville machines are built to avoid burning the coffee when dispensing it. Filters are used during dispensing in order to ensure the quality of the espresso.
Many parts are involved in a cup of espresso, including oils, sugars and milk. Espresso is dispensed as coffee, crema and the frothy milk cap. The crema is where most of the flavor of espresso comes from, and it must be dispensed correctly by adjusting the pressure applied to the coffee as well as the amount of coffee. Milk is used to complete the flavor of a cup of espresso, and it only mixes correctly when it has a froth that is equivalent to shaving-cream, where bubbles aren't visible at all. The complex operation steps of a Breville espresso machine can be reviewed in the manual.
