Make a better cup of coffee!

Videos | Steam & Brew | Pre-Ground Coffee Aging Test

If it's not the number one question we get, it's darn close: Can I use pre-ground coffee with my espresso machine?

With some machines, absolutely! If they feature a pressurized basket or portafilter, pre-ground coffee will work just fine. With machines that have traditional brew heads/baskets/filters, however, you can't. We promise. We're not trying to upsell you here.

To prove it, we ground up a batch of coffee on our Rancilio Rocky, then pulled shots on the Rancilio Silvia each day over the following week. Watch and learn, friends!
