The filters included with the Icona Vintage ECOV311.BK Black let you brew 1 or 2 cups of coffee at the same time. The machine is also suitable for special coffee pods (ESE servings) which make brewing a cup of coffee very easy. That's useful when you want to have a quick cup of coffee in the morning before you go to work. With the steam pipe, you can froth milk for a cappuccino or latte macchiato. Preheat your cups on the heating plate on top of the machine, or use the hot water function to quickly warm up your cup with hot water. This way, the coffee doesn't cool off immediately when it's poured into your cup. This espresso machine has a stainless-steel casing and is more durable than a plastic machine as a result.
Tip: Don't forget to buy a separate coffee grinder to make coffee with freshly ground beans.
