What is the difference between espresso machines and coffee makers?
A coffee maker relies on gravity to pull water through its filters to produce a hot pot of coffee. Espresso makers, on the other hand, use high pressure to drive water through the coffee beans in a matter of seconds.
How long does an espresso machine last?
An espresso machine can be expected to last anywhere from 5 to 15 years. Maintenance is often a driving factor in how long the machines last, as is the frequency with which they are used.
