Capresso Espresso and Cappuccino Machine Giveaway

I recently received this Capresso EC100 Pump Espresso and Cappuccino Machine ($149.99 value)

Would you like to create new and delicious gourmet coffee beverages quickly and easily at home with this stainless-steel lined beauty?

Frothing and steaming milk has never been simpler with two frothing positions for making lattes or cappuccinos.

Features and Benefits

  • Stainless-steel lined ThermoBlock heating system with 15 bar pressure for perfect high-pressure brewed espresso; water never comes in contact with aluminum
  • Removable 46 oz. water container for easy filling
  • Self-locking filter holder with thumbguard
  • Two sieves to produce one or two rich, thick crema espressos at a time
  • Single sieve for use with pre-packed espresso pods or pre-ground coffee
  • Unlimited steam output produces hot frothed milk for cappuccino and latte
  • Separate frothing positions for steamed milk (latte) and frothed milk (cappuccino)
  • Removable heavy-duty stainless steel cup warming platform
  • Indicator lights for “On/Off” and “Coffee/Steam”
  • Easy to clean removable stainless drip tray
  • One year limited warranty

How does it work?

This is a dual frother machine with two parts.

There is a Frothing Sleeve for cappuccinos and when the Frothing Sleeve is removed, it reveals the Steam Tube for lattes.

Frothing: Frothing Sleeve is in place over the steam tube. Hot steam and air are injected into the milk. The air will swirl inside the milk creating silky dense froth on top of the milk, ideal for a cappuccino.

Steaming only: Frothing Sleeve is removed to reveal the Steam Tube. Only hot steam will be injected into the milk, ideal for a latte.

This machine is solidly built, makes great drinks, and the sky is the limit with the specialty drinks I’ll be making for years to come using it.

I’ve never met a cup of coffee or specialty coffee drink I don’t like:

Vanilla Iced Coffee

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Coffee Reviews – Compilation Post (big)

As you can tell, I’m well-caffeinated and one lucky reader will be, too.

Contest ends Wednesday, August 1, 2012 and winner will be chosen randomly. Open to continental U.S. residents only. In full disclosure, I was given the Capresso machine shown here but am not being paid to post a review or host the giveaway. My thoughts, opinions, and review are 100% my own.


  1. Pinterest follow & repin :-)

  2. I love iced white mocha from Starbucks and mocha frap.

  3. As a local barrista, I’ve done my fair share of experimental drink making. My favorite concoction of perfect sweetness to comfy coffee flavor ratio is in a mocha cappaccino. It delivers the perfect amount of caffeine with two shots of espresso extracted directly into a mug lined with cocoa and topped with protein packed whole milk. Dusted with a bit of cocoa, and on days when I need a little extra something, drizzled with rich chocolate syrup, it’s my dream drink. Yummmm!

  4. I want to make my own Shot in the Darks! (That’s chai lattes with espresso!) SO TASTY!!

  5. Non Fat Latte… that’s my go to drink. Not sure what my first drink at home would be though. Probably a flop until I find my groove.

  6. I always get an Iced coffee – BLACK! I know, i know, i know! But I like the taste of coffee beans.
