Espresso Machine vs Coffee Maker

From fresh espresso brewed right into your cup or a perfectly prepared pot of coffee, bring the café to your own kitchen countertop with KitchenAid®! Discover the difference between espresso machines, coffee makers and coffee grinders to learn various brewing methods.

Espresso Machines

The KitchenAid® Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine is the first at-home espresso machine with Dual, Smart Temperature Sensors that ensure optimal temperature and authentic tasting espresso. Set your KitchenAid® Burr Grinder to Fine with a grind size between 55 and 70. A commercial grade portafilter designed with recessed spouts to create a flat base, provides easy, stable tamping.

Experimentation is key to achieving great tasting espresso! That’s why both the burr grinder and semi-automatic espresso machine offer programmable functionality so you can save your favorite settings – and save time, too!

Drip Coffee Maker

Drip coffee makers use heat and simple gravity to evenly extract flavor from medium ground coffee beans. The KitchenAid® 12 Cup Drip Coffee Maker with spiral shower head and programmable warming plate features 24-hour brewing programmability, so coffee can be ready any time, day or night. Plus, the spiral showerhead evenly saturates grounds for an exceptionally flavorful cup of coffee every time. For drip, set your KitchenAid® Burr Grinder controls to medium with a grind size between 36 and 54.

Burr Coffee Grinder

You can achieve consistent grind sizes for every coffee brew method with the KitchenAid® Burr Coffee Grinder. Seventy precise settings offer a wide variety of grind sizes from medium for drip, or fine for Espresso – even coarse for Cold Brew! Automatic Smart Dosing Technology adjusts grind times intuitively to deliver the precise volume and grind size consistency for your favorite coffee beverage – whether it’s a mid-day latte, or a morning cup of joe.
