Machines > Ultima (Model # 121)
world's most convenient semi-automatic coffee and espresso/cappuccino
new simple way of making Espresso / Cappuccino:
"Ultima" eliminates all the inconvenient steps of conventional
espresso machines: no more complications with tamping, hot filter
holders, or cleaning and rinsing of sieves. Just fill coffee to
your liking (7 to 15 grams) into the machine, turn and pull the
coffee lever down, and switch on the pump. Within seconds, any size
espresso or up to 12 oz. of coffee are ready. The double coffee
spout even adjusts to accommodate different size cups. Then pull
up and turn lever to prepare the next round of espresso. At the
same time the used coffee is automatically discarded into an internal
container. Please watch the video clips to see for yourself how
easy it is to make professional espressos.

without a mess.

included How Things Work
Tamping (packing the coffee) is one of the crucial steps when making
espresso. The Capresso Ultima does it by itself, all the time. Just
fill your ground espresso coffee in the machine, and turn and close
the lever. When you turn on the pump, the brewing chamber automatically
seals itself so that all the water is forced through the coffee,
resulting in wonderful, thick crema espresso with a wonderful aroma.
There are machines out there with pre-packed espresso pods and capsules.
Isn't this even more convenient?
A: Pre-packed coffee is definitely very convenient. However,
the cost of the pre-packed coffee is often two to three times higher
than ground coffee. So, if you make 4 drinks a day, you spend anywhere
from $250 to $350 more per year just on coffee. Pre-packed coffee
portions might not be available in your preferred roast or flavor.
Also, with the Capresso "Ultima," you can adjust the amount
of coffee to the strengths you want.
Q: Can I make a regular cup of coffee?
A: Yes, we call it "Crema Coffee." Just put a large
cup underneath the double pouring spout, fill one to two scoops
of your preferred coffee into the brewing chamber and brew approx.
8 oz. of coffee. Pressured brewed coffee tastes completely different
from drip coffee. The main reasons are that the brewing time is
much shorter and flavor and aroma are extracted under pressure.
am so pleased with my recent purchase that I wanted to write a note
to tell you so! My wife and I owned and operated an espresso shop
for 5 years and have been on a search for a home-style espresso
maker for three years. We have been disappointed generally, with
the units available. A week a go we purchased a Capresso Model #121,
Ultima and are VERY PLEASED with the coffee it produced! Bravo...
and kudos to your company!!!"
purchased this machine at Macys in 1999, and along with it the burr
grinder model 551. I use these products EVERY DAY. The Ultima performs
remarkably for a non commercial machine. It is convenient and easy
to use. It makes beautiful crema. Much better than our last Gaggia.
The grinder has been working beautifully too. I just wanted to take
a moment to thank you for such remarkable design and function."
