If you are serious about coffee, you want to control every aspect of making it - this is where espresso coffee machines come in. Sometimes known as portafilter machines, these are designed for people who want to be part of the coffee making experience.
Choose your bean, set your grind, get the tamp just right, choose brew temperature, to pre-infuse or not, time the shot perfectly all whilst enjoying the sweet, nutty aroma and trying to texture and steam your milk in search of the perfect, silky micro foam.
Even then, the fun is just about to start. Can you pour that perfect Rosetta, a simple heart or be the true master of latte art with an elegant swan? Now the excitement is out of the way, you can sit down, relax and enjoy that work of art you have created – until next time…
At ecookshop we have a carefully selected range of espresso coffee machines which will help you take your coffee to the next level.

Essentials to Great Coffee.
Freshness - Freshness - Freshness. Coffee, in general, works on the rule of three. Beans are to be roasted within 3 months of harvest. Beans are to be ground within 3 weeks or roasting. Beans are to be brewed within 3 minutes of grinding.
Why these 3 rules are so important can be explained from a few points of view:
From the point of picking a coffee cherry, it is a race against time minimise the loss of flavour and quality from the bean. All we can do from that point on is minimise the loss of flavour by careful actions.
From the growers point of view, to wash and dry the coffee as quickly as possible ready for export.
From the roasters, to hand roast the coffee in individual batches using years of experience to know when the roast has brought out the right elements and then to deliver it to the customer in prime condition.
Finally, the brewer to ensure it has been ground consistently, tamped appropriately and brewed for the right time, at the right temperature for bring out the flavours that are packed into that tiny bean.
