List Of The Most Awesome Espresso Machines

Gaggia 14101 Classic Espresso Machine


Gaggia 14101 Classic Espresso MachinePros:

This is a product of the highly respected espresso machine brand, Gaggia. Apart from that, however, its brewing capacity is what’s making customers happy. It could make up to six cups of coffee a day, thanks to the 72-ounce water tank. Also, with that being said, cleaning it up couldn’t get easier!

The byproduct does not only come through one but two channels—two cups getting filled up at once equals less hassle. Of course, the physicality matters as it creates the impression of stability and quality. This Gaggia machine is primarily made of stainless steel, which looks like a professional barista’s ‘tool of the trade’. It does not only look like it; it also does work like it. People say that the espresso coming out of this stuff tastes good enough for them to ask for more. In regards to flavor this is one of the best coffee machines around.

To add, its revolutionary portafilter could cast every single coffee puck therein. Make it clean as a new pin anytime you want to. When it comes to the temperature and steam control, it is safe to say that Gaggia knows better (if not best). Some customers have been using this very product for years already, and it still acts as if it’s still new.


The cord can be a bit of a hard work. It is thicker compared to the usual (and more comfortable) ones, making the espresso machine less manageable and, yes, transferrable. The water tank may be an asset, but it could easily attract germs. Thus, you need to clean things up more often than you have initially expected. Also, some have experienced feeling a slight sting whenever they touch the metal parts of the machine while it’s on work mode. That’s not that scary, though, as it might actually happen especially to high-performance appliances like this.


Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista Espresso Maker


Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista Espresso Maker, BVMC-ECMP1000Pros:

Mr. Coffee may not be a popular name, but you don’t immediately judge someone by his name, right?  It boasts of its One Touch feature, meaning you can have a single or double shot of whatever sort of coffee you got in just one press of  button.

The cup tray is completely adjustable, so no worries about having a super cute or a super massive cup. Either way, you are taken care of. A removable water tank is also included, which facilitates an easy brewing experience.

A lot of brewing each day isn’t a problem. What customers dig the most about this machine is its automatic milk frother that could benefit your lattes and cappuccinos. Most espresso machines don’t come with this. Mr. Coffee has made it a point to salvage anyone from spending more for a frothing device. It has gotten a really strong pump, thus making the coffee richer tasting.

Also, busy folks prefer this over the others. You could just maneuver the control panel and leave it for some time. The moment you’re back… voila!  Your coffee has already been prepared to perfection. This, too, comes with clear instructions, which is agreeable to those who are always on the go. Here’s another catch—it’s not that expensive.


The pressurization capacity may be an issue as it does not seem to keep up with the demands as it ages. Some customers have complained about the espresso machine not working properly after more than a year of using it. The device also appears to have a less solid physicality, some fearing that a number of parts might give up after some time. Only time could tell, perhaps. Putting the milk container in and out of the coffee maker can also be a bit of a chore, first world problems…..


De’Longhi EC680 Dedica Espresso Machine


De'Longhi EC680 Dedica Espresso MachinePros:

It’s claim to fame?  The sleek design. It is, from top to bottom, pro looking, and it’s only as wide as six inches. That said, you don’t need to set aside a vast number of kitchen bits and pieces just to give way for this espresso machine. Its thermoblock technology is also receiving rave reviews from buyers. In just 40 seconds, the device already heats up and is ready to serve anyone’s favorite latte.

Just like the previous item, this also gives you the option to have just a single or a double shot of espresso. This has a 15 bar pressure—which is up there on the professional level—and it comes with a milk frother for added enjoyment. No need to buy it separately!

The illuminated control panel makes it a lot easier to command this device. You may program things yourself, thus you get to constantly keep eye on your cappuccino as it is being made.

Another interesting aspect about this product is that if it feels like it’s already doing nothing, it automatically puts itself to standby mode. That’s an obvious energy consumption trick.  The Dedica Espresso Machine also comes with its own cup warmer so to keep beverages warm all the time.



The absence of the expected super rich crema is a big disappointment for some users. Coffee lovers want their lattes to have such, yet to no avail?  Though this machine is completely programmable, the whole process could be somewhat complicated. And, though the width is a killer, the stability could be an issue. It isn’t heavy enough at the bottom, causing it to become wobbly when in use. Also, the milk frother does not work as expected. Creating awesome espresso foam can be just some sort of distant dream.



De’Longhi EC155 Espresso and Cappuccino Maker


De'Longhi EC155 Espresso and Cappuccino MakerPros:

The pre-heating process will not be an time consuming task as it only takes seconds for the machine to do it. Thank the heavens (or De’Longhi) this coffee maker has the innovative self-priming system. The boiler reaches the accurate brewing temperature  as fast as lightning, so you no longer have to wait that long.

Speaking of temperature, this has two thermostats that separately regulate water and steam pressure. On one hand, the dual function filter holder lets anyone use either ground coffee or convenient pods—your choice is what matters. It possesses a 15 bar pump pressure, which is strong enough to create that rich crema to complete your latte or cappuccino.

Also, the swivel jet frother wouldn’t be named that way if it wasn’t that banging. Because froth is essential to espresso, this machine creates it in a way only a pro could pull off, and this one’s based upon the majority of reviews garnered by this product.

The 35-ounce water reservoir is a perfect  size, and it could make up to ten shots in one brewing. Such capacity also makes it super easy to clean. And, though the tank is quite massive, it’s a breeze putting it on and ejecting it of the machine.


You may not be able to use your preferred cups for this coffee maker. The tray is only a little more than two inches from the grounds basket, thus no tall containers right here. Also, the frothing wand is just a little more than three inches off of the counter top. Because of that, you may want to purchase a frothing cup that complements this machine. Plus, a dry puck could be a rarity when it comes to this machine. What can you find in the grounds basket may always seem soupy.

Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker


Nespresso Inissia Espresso MakerPros:

It’s definitely an eye candy—black, sleek and just flat out fabulous. But, are we to talk about its outer beauty all day?  Efficiency-wise, it is worth bragging. It has a 19 bar pump pressure, and the standard measure is only 15!

This assures anyone of a delightful crema and a richer texture. The taste isn’t that bad, too, and that is according to the majority of the buyers. The built-in tank could hold up to 24 ounces of water, and it only means more cups of espresso at once.

Furthermore, there is no need to wait for the machine to heat up as it could do that in just some mere 25 seconds. The 16 little capsules that come with this product are also worth mentioning. Inserting them to the device is a sure breeze, and getting them off of it also works the same way

Busy folks find this thing really interesting as they could just press a button and take a bath and get dressed up for work, and come back to the counter with the coffee ready to be served. For the record, this one is the cheapest Nespresso espresso machine on the market today,yet it is also up there on the pedestal when it comes to quality, which is probably why it is the best selling espresso maker!  It also helps you save more with its automatic shut down feature. Nine minutes of not using the machine would already cause it to shut down.


There’s nothing really bad to say about this product aside from the fact that it can be a little noisy. The sound it lets out whenever it is being used might hurt the ears, but the consolation would always come immediately after you took a sip of Nespresso’s byproduct. Also, others find it hard to comprehend the instructions. But, you could always seek the help of YouTube or, say, Google.


Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker with Aeroccino

Nespresso Inissia Espresso Maker with AeroccinoPros:

This coffee machine is the exact Nespresso genius already featured in this article. What sets this one apart from the other is the Aeroccino that comes with it.


It still has a 25-second pre-heat feature, and has gotten the magnificent 19 bar pump pressure (when others could only reach 15). This one’s a legit energy saving appliance as it shuts itself down after nine minutes of being inactive. Busy folks are obsessed with this as you could just leave it after pressing stuff and, after some time, come back to the rich aroma of latte or cappuccino.



Yes, this can be a little noisy for some, but really?  Coffee lovers don’t mind any sound coming out of their espresso machines. Understood—this device may not be easy to handle. But, aside from the given instructions, you can always look for other sources over the Internet.
