Using an Espresso Machine to Press Tea

Paladar | Mar 10, 2008 08:58 AM

This is a two-part post.

A friend gave us an espresso machine (a Buon Cafe 330), but no one in our household drinks coffee. We've been to a few higher end tea and coffee shops where tea is made with an espresso machine (with great success in our opinion). So my questions are:

1. Is there a way to clean the espresso machine thoroughly enough that there's no trace of coffee to mar the flavor of the tea?

2. Has anyone experimented trying this? Any instructions, tips and/or tricks you wouldn't mind sharing?

Thanks in advance for your help.
