How does the Simpresso Portable Espresso Machine work?

STEP 1
Simprsso Filter Assembly

Reassembly the water filter after clean.

STEP 2
Simpresso Stainless Bracket and Filter Inserted into Water Tank

Place the clean and dry Stainless Steel Bracket and the Reusable Filter into the bottom of the Water Tank.

STEP 3
Simpesso Smart Capsule Inserted int Nozzle

Use Smart Capsule. Optimal coffee grind size is on the coarser side (i.e., roughly the consistency of coarse beach sand that is still porous to allow water through). Lightly tamp with bottom of scoop.

STEP 4
Simpresso Water Tank and Nozzle Connected

Screw the Nozzle Head into the Water Tank tightly.

STEP 6
Simpresso Hand Pump Connected to Water Tank

Screw the Hand Pump onto the Water Tank tightly.

Simpresso Nespresso Filter and Basket Tube Assembly

Use NS Capsule. Aluminum capsules only. Plastic versions are too rigid, inflexible and non-conforming in shape.

STEP 5
Simpresso Water Tank Filled with Boiling Water

Fill boiling water into the water tank with water level marks for ristretto (25ml), espresso (40ml) to lungo (110ml)

STEP 7
Simpresso Extracting Espresso

Pump tempo with one squeeze per second. First ~5 pumps builds up pressure in the unit and will not extract any coffee at the bottom of the nozzle yet until pressure build up is complete. Once pressure is done building up, you will hear a very light pop with the espresso then flowing out of the bottom of the nozzle.
