If you are looking for a programmable espresso maker then you cannot go past the Cuisinart EM 200.
Enjoying that first morning coffee will only take moments with the EM200. Simply turn the machine on, fill the porta filter and the machine is ready to brew your first gourmet quality espresso for the day all in the comfort of your home.
Pods are also available for convenience but remember you can still enjoy your favorite blend of freshly ground coffee beans. The preselect service size is a great feature for people who enjoy a large mug of coffee first thing in the morning.
- Programmable espresso maker brews single or double espresso

- Steam nozzle for cappuccino or latte
- pre-programmed cup sizes
- 64-ounce reservoir
- cup-warming tray
- frothing cup and tamping tool included
- Measures 10-1/2 by 9-1/4 by 12-3/4 inches

The large warming tray is great and really does keep cups warm and ready each time you want a fresh espresso.
Another convenient feature of the EM200 is that the steam button functions separately and takes less than 30 seconds to steam and froth milk resulting in authentic espresso with excellent crema. You can also enjoy a latte, cappuccino or the occasional hot chocolate which is always a big hit with the kids (and maybe the not so big kids).
There is no more guess work when measuring the volume of espresso needed with the pre-programmable cup size (small, medium and large). This is really convenient when making 2 cups and one person wants a large coffee.
The Cuisinart EM200 has full stainless steel construction making it a very sturdy machine that will give excellent service for years. It also comes with a 3 year warranty. This is an attractive machine that can take pride of place in any kitchen.
The 64 ounce reservoir removes for easy filling and the lift up handle makes it very easy to carry from the sink back to the machine.
Cleaning is a breeze with the removable drip tray.
With a purchase price of just under $200 for a programmable machine that comes with a 3 year warranty and makes a high quality espresso the Cuisinart EM200 would be hard to beat.
