There is a separate Grinder which usually sits on top of a Knockout Drawer which is used for the spent coffee pucks. Although most Traditional Espresso Machines have automatic dosing these days the coffee making process is by hand (Artisan). The coffee shot; single or double is prepared using the machine. The milk is foamed using the machine Steam Wand. The coffee is then put together to make any one of the most popular coffees. Cappuccino Latte Mocha and Macchiato etc. All of the preparation adds to the "Theatre" of the Coffee Culture. Customers have a higher perception of an "Artisan Coffee" and are willing to pay more. Training is required to ensure quality and consistency.
Also in large scale machines there are options of keeping the water heated for a longer time and the coffee is constantly brewed so that the supply is almost instantaneous when switched on. However in small scale machines not much importance is given to the Commercial Coffee Maker heating and efficiency factors. The speed is also not much to talk about and hence the supply is done a long time after the switch is turned on as the brewing and heating starts again and again for every new cup of coffee. But all said and done the lapse in time due to reheating is hardly a minute or two making the wait a breeze when compared to other machines.
A common coffee machine is the espresso machine. These machines make coffee by using steam that is pumped through tightly packed finely ground coffee beans. The result of this process varies according to how the operator chooses to make it which depends on the options available for their machine. These machines vary from one that simply pumps steam at Bar 15 pressure through a porta filter that holds ground coffee to programmable ones. Programmable machines will grind your coffee make your espresso your way and even dispose the spent grounds and then sends a clean rinse through the machine. Some machines may have other attachments to make cappuccinos and lattes. Some machines similar to espressos use a higher pressure of 19 bars.
Thankfully all that has changed. With the evolution of the High Street big brands of Coffee Bars. The growth in Café Culture in the UK and the influence of the well known "American" food outlets. The publics perception of Coffee has changed and become more refined. In fact the UK is now officially a nation of coffee drinkers. To respond to this many independent businesses have moved towards more sophisticated methods of producing coffee to compete in the coffee market. From the traditional Italian style Espresso machine to the more complex Bean to Cup automatic coffee machines it is possible to produce a wide range of high quality espresso based coffees very simply.
