Your dreams of making barista-style lattes and cappuccinos from home may have finally come true.
Thanks to Amazon Prime Day, this premium espresso machine from Calphalone is more than half off, slashing its price from a steep $400 to a much more affordable $170. The Temp iQ Espresso Machine is arguably the best deal on the site right now for coffee lovers who may not have their at-home set up figured out quite yet. You can store your french presses and drip coffee filters away for now, because the Calphalone can make everything from simple drip coffees to elaborate, frothy cappuccinos and lattes.
What makes the Temp iQ distinct from Calphalone’s other coffee machines is its precision heating technology for even heating that extracts the best taste from your espresso beans. It uses a combination of thermoblock technology and PID temperature control to ensure consistent heating. This, in addition to its Pre-Infusion process (which basically refers to the process of soaking the ground beans in the filter before applying the brewing pressure), guarantees a strong cup of coffee to your liking.
In addition to its heating technology, though, it also comes with all the accessories you need to create coffee just like the barista at your favorite cafe. A steam wand can be used for making creamy froth and micro-foam milk for everything from flat whites and cappuccinos to lattes and macchiatos, while a cup warming tray can be used to place espresso-ready cups if you prefer your coffee black. The machine also comes with a stainless steel milk pitcher, a tamper and a cleaning pin so you don’t have to worry about buying any other accessories. All you need are your beans and mug, and you’re all set.
