Espresso Machine Reviews

The Coffee Insider tests, evaluates, rates and reviews several categories of espresso machines, coffee makers, coffee grinders and accessories. We employ a scoring system awarding points in several, weighted categories with a total potential score of 100.  Reviewers are also able to indicate a ‘buy’ recommendation as well.

Espresso Machine Manufacturers

We are independent of any manufacturer. So we evaluate and review products from many companies including Nuova Simonelli, JURA, Gaggia, DeLonghi, Miele, Mr. Coffee, Breville and others.

Buyers Guides

We are probably best known for our Buyers Guides. There are several types of buyer’s guides on our site. These include looking at a manufacturer’s products line, a category or type of product and rankings which encompass both elements.

We are best known for our 20 Best Super Automatic Espresso Machines listing.

Editor’s Choice Winners

The highest distinction available from The Coffee Insider is our Editor’s Choice awards. These are independent of reviewer recommendations but do the awards do take our reviews into consideration. The methodology for selecting a product as an Editor’s Choice winner differs from our review methodology.

But in its price range there are a lot of very different and compelling options to consider.
