Editors Choice

The Editors Choice Awards are the Coffee Insider’s top designation. We rate and review coffee makers, espresso machines, coffee beans, grinders and accessories. Look at our 20 Best Super Automatic Espresso machines for the best rated. We then share our honest reviews and give you independent ratings for every one.

Current 2020 Editor’s Choice Winners

Editors Choice Winner Process

Occasionally, based on a completed review, our editor will determine that a product is worthy of our Editors Choice designation. Reviews focus more on the absolute quality, design and effectiveness of the products. We believe that people should invest in  top quality. We also believe that coffee drinkers should invest in high levels of automation. This is because we believe that lifetime value is more important than the initial cost.

To be selected for an Editors Choice award, we also consider total value and lifetime costs. As a result, you can see that reviews may offer one suggestion but our Editor’s Choice list may offer another. For example the JURA GIGA 6 and the Gaggia Babila both received higher review scores than the JURA Z8.

Over the course of 2020 we expect that the most exceptional products from every category will make earn Editors Choice designation. But, this is not a guarantee. Just like we do not limit the number that receive it from each category, we also do not require a winner from each category. So as we review coffee makers, coffee beans, coffee grinders and accessories, check back to see which, if any, have made the cut.
