The Coffee Insider presents it’s 2020 Espresso Machine Buyer’s guides. This will include product reviews and rating, recommendations, how-to guides and more
We break down our reviews into detailed sections looking at the brewing technology and any milk handling, grinding and programmability and customization. We also look at what makes the machine unique and what tradeoffs were made. Finally, we talk about how it will work in your home or office including east of use, automation and cleaning and maintenance.
Although we often suggest super automatics we understand that there are two circumstances where people choose a manual espresso machine. We loved the truly manual, non-electric Flair Espresso Maker espresso press. Some of the very best in the world are essential home versions or home-friendly models such as the Nuova Simonelli Oscar, Appia and Musica. All three are manual to some degree or another yet all are Editors Choice winners. This is because their core brewing, milk handling and their design and quality are near perfect.
On the other side of the spectrum is inexpensive or entry level espresso makers.
This is where our heart lies and our 20 Best Super Automatic Espresso Machines really illustrates the mission of this website. But we look at a range of machines from the reigning champ, JURA GIGA 6 to newer models to our program like the Gaggia Cadorna espresso machines. We cover a broad range of manufacturers too including the Quickmill Andreja.
Some machines, like the Hamilton Beach 49976 FlexBrew have both drip brewing systems and true pressurized espresso systems. We will examine these in both the coffee and espresso category
