So you want to brew your own espresso, then check out this list with best home espresso coffee machines, all Amazon best sellers with a huge rating and many reports by customers.
How to choose a home espresso coffee machine
What type of fill: This is about its basic feature, pods or no-pods design. With pods you limit yourself to types of coffee that are prepared for you, this can also be more expensive, but the cleaning of the machine is easier. No-pods options allow you to choose coffee locally, to roast and grind the coffee yourself, and to drink pure coffee without flavors added by manufacturers.
By the way, if you decide for a no-pods design, make sure to find a quality coffee grinder. Good models allow you to choose the ground size. But some more expensive espresso machines have an integrated grinder. So make sure you check which option is better for you, a less expensive coffee machine plus a separate grinder, or a more expensive espresso machine with all built-in. You might want to check our list with best espresso coffee grinders.
Size: You will realize from the list below that there may be significant differences in the size of these coffee machines, but this may also imply differences in functionality.
Materials: The most affordable models are typically made with more plastic elements components, they are less durable, so there is a reason for the price. The most important part that should be steel is the boiler. The metal espresso machines develop a higher temperature and pressure and the coffee will be stronger and with a better flavor.
Pump-powered or steam-powered? Pump-powered espresso machines are better in temperature management and more consistent in performance. Those that are steam-powered are usually more affordable. The original Italian espresso machines were steam-powered.
Semi-automatic, automatic, or super-automatic: The first group means you have all control over the grind setting, and how long you pull the shot for. In automatic models, you start the shot but the machine decides when to stop it, but they normally allow for adjustability. The grind setting is under your control. Super-automatic models will do all, grind the coffee, steam the milk, and pull the shot.
Water reservoir or plumbing: This means that you can choose a machine that can be connected directly to the water line and you won’t need to worry about your machine running out of the water. An alternative is an espresso machine with a water reservoir, this is a more portable and more affordable option.
What can you make with an espresso machine
So the list is quite long and it includes at least the following:
- Basic espresso, this is probably the most important one for most users.
- Caffè Americano, you could call this an espresso diluted with extra water.
- Cappuccino, so this is espresso mixed with a small amount of foamed steamed milk that creates the creamy head on the top.
- Latte, here you add espresso to milk, reverse to cappuccino.
- Macchiato, this is an exceptionally strong espresso but low in volume.
- Ristretto, this is somewhat similar to macchiato, so you use the same amount of grounds but with half the water of an ordinary espresso.
- Lungo, this could be understood as espresso diluted with water, similar to Americano but the water is not added separately, it is the part of the brewing process. Therefore it is stronger and darker than an Americano.
Which coffee you can use in espresso machines
The short answer is – any coffee and any roast. But the most typical are Arabica and Robusta, the latter has a stronger flavor and more caffeine. I normally use Arabica which is milder.
Which brand to go for
There are many of them and some of them have been around for longer than a century.
- Bialetti, as you can imagine this is an Italian brand. They started in 1933 with their celebrated patented coffee pot which I use every day. This is a trusted brand with quality products.
- De’Longhi started in 1902, this is a family-owned business and one of the best known for their coffee machines.
- Nespresso, well I guess everybody knows about it. It started as a part of the Nestle Swiss brand.
- Cuisinart has been in this business for half a century already, this is a US-based company with a good reputation.
- Hamilton Beach is again a US company that builds a variety of kitchen stuff including high-quality espresso machines.
- There are many more, you will see some in the list, in particular Keurig, Capresso, Gaggia, etc.
