The holidays are right around the corner, and we're ready to cozy up around the fireplace, pour a nice hot cup of coffee (or in our case.. a latte) and enjoy some quality time with friends and family. With that, it's also a time of giving, and what better way to love on your people than with the gift of espresso!
If you have a special someone on your "nice" Christmas list this year who uses a Breville Espresso Machine, you're going to want to check this out! We've put together a full gift guide that's sure to award you "best gift giver ever" this holiday season.
The newest addition to the Crema Coffee Products family is our 54mm Dosing Cup. We've designed this dosing cup with a built-in grinder activating tab, allowing it to function perfectly with the Breville Barista Express' built-in grinder and grinder holder. Weigh your beans directly in the cup, dump them into the hopper, grind right back into the cup and then dump them right into your portafilter! No mess, no stress.
Whether you're an amateur barista or a seasoned pro, the espresso community would unanimously agree that consistency is everything when it comes to pulling the perfect shot. Our 53.3mm Tamper/Distributor combo provides just that - allowing you to evenly distribute your coffee grounds, and then tamp your grounds with consistent pressure, every time.
Near and dear to our hearts is our 54mm Bottomless Portafilter. Designed to work with all 54mm Breville machines (Barista Express, Barista Pro, Barista Touch, Bambino Plus, Infuser and Duo-Temp Pro), the bottomless portafilter is an essential tool for identifying and correcting extraction problems that cannot be seen with standard spouted portafilters. Exposing the bottom of your portafilter basket will allow you to see these extraction issues first hand, providing an opportunity to diagnose and improve the quality of your shots. Not only that...but it looks darn cool, too.
Small but mighty, our 54mm Dosing Funnels are here to keep your workstation clean by helping to eliminate the overflow of coffee grinds while dosing into your portafilter. Eliminating overflow also helps you reduce waste, and in turn, will result in much more consistent dosing.
Last, but certainly not least, is the gizmo you never knew you needed -- the one-of-a-kind Steam Lever replacement for the Barista Express, Infuser and Barista Pro! Our stainless steel steam levers are a direct swap replacement for the factory steam dial on Barista Express, Infuser and Barista Pro, and are a huge ergonomic upgrade to your workflow. A beautiful balance between function and form.
