Makes 1 serving (3 ounces)*
2 measured scoops finely ground
espresso or 2 espresso pods
Press the power button of the Cuisinart®
Espresso Maker to turn the machine on. The
lights around the power, manual, single and
double espresso buttons will illuminate
and when they stop blinking, the machine has
been warmed and is ready to use.
Place the one-cup filter basket in the
portafilter holder. Spoon the espresso grounds
into the basket. Using the tamping tool, press
down the grounds with moderate pressure
and clean any excess from the rim. Secure
the portafilter holder in place.
Place one mug or glass underneath the brew
head and press the double espresso
button. Espresso will begin to brew. When 3ounces have been brewed the machine will stop.
*This recipe can also be used to make two
single espressos. Follow the same instructions
for the doppio, but place two demitasse cups
under the brew head instead of one.
