What is the best way to prepare the grinds for an even extraction?</p> <p>Rather than starting with bursts of high pressure, the Breville Infuser Espresso Machine starts with steady, low pressure to gently expand the grinds. This helps fills in any cracks, gaps, or irregularities in the coffee puck before full pressure is applied, so even pressure is applied to all parts of the coffee puck and optimal flavor is extracted.</p> <h4>BES840XL Features</h4> <p>The BES840XL has both automatic features, like temperature settings, and programmable features like volumetric control. The key features that set it apart from other espresso machines in its price range are the pre-infusion technology, the thermocoil heating system, and PID temperature control technology. See chart below for details.</p> <p>Other helpful features include a cup warmer on the top of the machine and a feature that removes excess water from the filter basket after coffee extraction, so the used grounds form a dry puck for quicker cleanup. The machine goes into 'Sleep Mode' after 1 hour and automatically shuts off after 3 hours. There is extra-tall cup clearance for brewing directly into travel mugs.</p> <p>Other touches include an ‘Empty Me!’ indicator that lets you know when the removable drip tray is full and a ‘Clean Me’ cleaning alert. The storage tray houses the included accessories. Lastly, all parts that come in contact with water and coffee are BPA free.</p> <div class="leftImage" style=" width:450px"> <img src="https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/attrowbr/aplus/espresso/BES840XL_diagram_600._V358079307_.jpg" width="435" alt="Breville" /> <div class="imageCaption">Click on image to view larger</div></div> <h4>Product Features</h4> <p> <ol> <li><b>The 61 fl. oz.
