Making espresso at home is generally a bad idea. For starters, an electric espresso machine that can generate adequate pressure to actually produce espresso costs a few thousand dollars. Maintenance and cleaning on a machine like that are essential, and the time it takes to backflush and scrub the grouphead each day takes longer than making coffee.
The solution is simple — and it’s from Amsterdam.
Superkop is a manually operated, non-electric espresso machine that excels in taste. It’s easy to operate and intended for daily use. The machine uses freshly-ground coffee (no cups), does not require any warm-up, is virtually maintenance-free and, most of all, produces excellent espresso.
The Superkop has been designed to last forever. Truly, a tool for life.
