Then this contest is for you because Best Buy and KitchenAid are giving away the new KitchenAid semi-automatic espresso machine and a KitchenAid Burr grinder!
KitchenAid enables you to do great things with coffee
I once thought I had to go to the neighbourhood coffee house for a truly great coffee. I would lament when they ran out of eggnog (Did I mention my favourite coffee drink: eggnog lattes!) and wince at getting charged $5 for each cup. And the price kept getting higher each season. I understand that coffee prices keep going up, but there has to be a better way. Then I got an espresso machine and my eyes were opened to the possibilities of great coffee whenever I wanted at a very reasonable price.
First, let me tell you a little about the KitchenAid espresso machine.
There are a few unique features found in the new KitchenAid espresso machines that help you to easily create amazing coffee in your own home. First among these is the flat 58mm portafilter. An issue I often experience at home is not getting a level tamp which results in uneven temperature and often has water flowing more through one side of the filter than the other; so, I don’t get the full rich flavour I expect. KitchenAid’s portafilter can help keep the temperature and water flow even throughout the extraction process.
Another unique feature is the dual temperature sensors. On my machine at home, I run water through it just before I make a coffee, hoping it will equalize the temperature within the machine. KichenAid’s new espresso machines control the temperature throughout the brew, so you know the water is at the right temperature, without guessing.
Perfect coffee without the expense of take-out
The economy is raising prices on everything, including coffee. It’s no surprise that we will continue to see price increases at restaurants and coffee shops. The relative savings for whole bean purchases is continuing to go up. I recently bought a pound of coffee beans (Starbuck’s beans at a grocery store actually) for $7.99 on sale. We made dozens of Cappuccinos, Americanos, and of course eggnog lattes from that single pound of beans (It would have cost a fortune for all of those coffees at a coffee shop!).
You’ll need a precise coffee grinder to get the most from those coffee beans. In this contest, we are giving away the new KitchenAid Burr Grinder (available soon at Best Buy) as part of the prize. It’s the best way to enjoy your new KitchenAid espresso machine: put the portafilter into the grinder to get the precise amount of ground coffee for each brew!
