CLOSTER, N.J., July 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With the average price of coffee rising by more than 50 percent since the beginning of 2010, you have no doubt seen the price of your daily latte or cappuccino go up as well. While you may decide to cut back on visits to the coffee shop, it doesn't mean you have to give up great tasting coffee and espresso-based drinks.

By brewing at home, you can enjoy your coffee at a fraction of the cost. For instance, if a pound of coffee sells for $11, the ingredients to brew a cup of coffee or espresso cost less than a quarter. With the right equipment, your home can become a convenient, cost-saving coffee cafe that's always open.
For maximum freshness and coffee taste, choose a professional quality burr grinder that delivers a perfect grind every time. The new Capresso Burr Grinder (Model 559) offers a winning combination of quality, consistency and value. With an easily programmable electronic timer and 17-position grind selector, you'll be sure coffee is ground properly for any brewing method from espresso fine to French press coarse.
Next, choose a quality espresso machine that meets all the proper brewing parameters including high pressure, precise brewing temperature and speed. The result will be a perfect brew that is not under or over extracted.
The Capresso EC100 Pump Espresso & Cappuccino Machine is a full-featured machine designed for coffee lovers who want an easy, convenient way to enjoy the full taste of espresso, cappuccinos and lattes at home. It brews 1-2 cups of perfect espresso in seconds, and the stainless steel lined thermoblock system delivers the required 15 bars of pressure for maximum extraction of the ground coffee and perfect milk steaming and frothing.
Coffee is at its best immediately upon brewing, so it is recommended to drink it directly after brewing and savor every sip. By brewing cup by cup you're not throwing extra coffee down the drain after it gets cold, which is another great money-saving tip on coffee. Designed for convenience and versatility, the Capresso EC100 Pump Espresso & Cappuccino Machine brews cup by cup with either pre-ground coffee or E.S.E. pre-packed espresso pods.
Priced for the budget minded coffee lover, the two machines together retail for under $200, so they pay for themselves with the savings versus buying your brew at the coffee shop. The Capresso Burr Grinder (Model 559) has an actual retail price of $49.99 and is available at www.amazon.com. The Capresso EC100 Pump Espresso & Cappuccino Machine has an actual retail price of $149.99 and is available at www.capresso.com.
