The electric espresso machine is equipped with powered milk frother that can create a thick and creamy foam located on the side of the machine to turn an espresso into a latte or cappuccino.

The frother is built right in for fast, convenient foam in minutes


It was easy to put together and start brewing in a few minutes.  To make espresso, either ground fresh beans or use pre-ground espresso.

Use the measuring scoop to add your ground coffee to the filter, notice the 2 cup and 4 cup measurement lines.

Then with the flat end of the measuring spoon, tamp them down a few times.

Then drop the filter directly into the funnel.

Position the filter into the espresso machine. The funnel slides in from the left and is turned until the armbar is directly center and it locks. You will not be able to turn it any further.

Remove the dome-shaped water tank cover and add water directly. The included carafe is measured for one, two or four cups of espresso, up to 240 ml (8 ounces). Replace the cover, tightening it according to the steam needs of your brew.

Replace the carafe on the removable tray under the filter and turn on the machine using the knob on the right.

The Sowtech Espresso Machine starts to brew very quickly, and in a few minutes, you’ll have up to four espressos ready! Use the frother according to the instructions in the user manual to make specialty drinks.

It is easy to clean with the removable tray being washable and since the filter fits directly into the funnel, the mess is kept to a minimum. Both of these pieces can be washed off in the sink and air dry.

I really like the steam feature, and look forward to improving my steam expertise to enhance the flavor of my coffee.
