The newly developed brewing unit is ideal for preparing a single cup of top-quality espresso in the easiest fashion possible (thanks in part to its smaller design and straightforward, height-adjustable dual spout). And despite the ease of operation, it’s incredibly versatile. In addition to espresso, this machine can serve up a latte macchiato, cappuccino, café crème and, of course, plain ol’ hot water. Plus Rodger Federer himself has endorsed it!
