New barista-style Espresso Coffee Machine from Morphy Richards

Morphy Richards has expanded its SDA portfolio with the launch of a barista-style coffee machine.

The manufacturer said it is designed to offer an affordable coffee shop experience at home, the Espresso coffee machine, which is compatible with both ground coffee and ESE pods, has a steam wand and variable steam function for brewing control and to create barista-style milk for a myriad of coffee types.

Designed with easy operation in mind, the machine features handy coffee and steam ready lights to indicate when the machine is ready to brew, as well as a built-in cup warmer and dual cup dispense to allow two drinks to be made at once.

Available from next month, the Espresso machine offers 15-bar pump pressure and it can create a catalogue of drinks – from a flat white to an espresso martini. It’s easy-fill 1.1 litre tank can be simply removed for filling and cleaning or filled in-situ – offering maximum convenience.

Annaliese Curtis, Marketing Manager at Morphy Richards, said: “Barista-style coffee making has seen a huge upsurge in popularity – particularly since the beginning of lockdown as consumers are missing their coffee shop fixes. Combining an on-trend, retro design with high quality performance and effortless function, the Espresso is the ideal addition to any modern kitchen.

“With many people continuing to work from home, we believe this appliance will be a best-seller as customers are keen to find an easily available and affordable answer to that perfect cup of coffee.”
