The Best Espresso Machines of 2017

Does cafe-quality espresso at home sound too good to be true? We bought and tested 9 espresso machines to help you choose the best one for your home cafe. Our testers pulled hundreds of shots and steamed gallons of milk to find the best espresso machine. We consulted several professional baristas and conducted blind taste tests to objectively evaluate our selection of espresso machines. Some machines require the skill of a barista and have a learning curve, while others make espresso drinks with the push of a button. Whether you're an experienced barista or someone looking for a quick morning shot of espresso, our review has you covered.

Since our last update we've kept an eye out for newly released espresso machines that might unseat our current award winners. No new products would contest the Barista Express as our Editors' Choice award winner and we haven't seen any new releases that offer more value dollar for dollar than the Gaggia Brera. We've been using the Gaggia Anima Prestige in our office since our first round of testing, and are continuously impressed by its high performance and ease of use. Short of ordering one at a cafe, the Prestige is the easiest and fastest way to get a cappuccino.

Best Overall Espresso Machine


Breville Barista Express


Editors' Choice Award

Great tasting espresso
Cafe quality lattes and cappuccinos
Expensive
Requires some effort and a learning curve
If you're seeking top-notch performance from a semi-automatic espresso machine, look no further than the Breville Barista Express. It won our Editors' Choice award and produced the best espresso of any machine that we tested. The Barista Express has a very usable interface and thorough instruction manual for those who are new to operating a semi-automatic machine. Its integrated grinder is easy to adjust and is more convenient than using an external grinder. The steam wand was powerful enough to produce rich microfoam and steamed milk for a wide variety of drinks. It was the easiest to use semi-automatic machine that we tested but still not as convenient as super-automatic machines like the Gaggia Anima Prestige or De'Longhi Nespresso Lattissima Pro, which both make espresso and steam milk drinks by pushing a single button.

Convenient
Good tasting espresso
Low lifetime cost
Laborious descaling process
With a list price of $450, super-automatic functionality, an integrated steam wand, and easily adjustable espresso settings, the Gaggia Brera strikes an excellent balance between performance and price. Its espresso didn't taste quite as good as that of the Breville Barista Express or Rancilio Silvia but it was far more convenient to use and substantially more affordable. The integrated steam wand was easy to use and clean, If you're looking for a machine that makes great espresso drinks and is relatively inexpensive, the Gaggia Brera won't disappoint. For those who want to maximize convenience and aren't on a budget, we recommend checking out the Anima Prestige.

Incredibly convenient and easy to use
Good espresso
Expensive list price
The Gaggia Anima Prestige was the most convenient machine in our review. The Anima Prestige grinds, tamps, and extracts espresso shots while simultaneously steaming milk. With super-automatic functionality and fully automatic milk steaming, you can make several different kinds of espresso drinks with the push of a button. Aside from regular cleaning and periodic descaling the Anima Prestige requires very little effort and is the second most convenient option from hiring a personal barista. It features four pre-programmed drink settings; espresso, espresso lungo, cappuccino, and latte macchiato. Though you have much more control with the Barista Express and Silvia, the Anima Prestige consistently produces great-tasting drinks with a minimal amount of effort.

Top Pick for Straight Espresso Shot Convenience


Nespresso Inissia


Top Pick Award

$139.30
at Amazon
See It

Convenient and easy to use
Good espresso
Low upfront cost
Uses expensive capsules
Does not include milk frother
If you want the quickest shot and least amount of cleanup afterward, the Nespresso Inissia is for you. Its capsule system lets you drop in a pod, push one button, and end up with a shot of espresso a couple of minutes later. The only cleanup required is washing whatever cup you use and, when the spent capsule bin eventually fills up, the capsules can be recycled through a program run by Nespresso. Sure, the shots it pulls aren't quite as rich as the models that use fresh beans, but they're plenty good enough to satisfy all but the most refined espresso palettes.

Read review: Nespresso Inissia

Like the idea of a single serving capsule system but want to be able to make coffee as well? The Nespresso Evoluo does both, but currently there are fewer espresso capsule flavors available for it than for the Inissia.

Great for Experienced Baristas and Aficionados


Rancilio Silvia



$685.00
at Amazon
See It

Great taste
Allows for endless experimentation
Expensive
Requires skill to use effectively
No built-in grinder
The Rancilio Silvia is an excellent option for espresso connoisseurs who want to get the most out of a high-end machine. It pulled shots that were comparable to those of the Breville Barista Express and had a comparably powerful steam wand, but it is far less user-friendly and much more difficult for novices to learn. While the Breville comes with a detailed user manual and an easy-to-understand interface, the Rancilio comes with comparably sparse instructions and a somewhat cryptic interface. If you're an experienced barista, this is not an issue, as you have complete control over the length of your shots. Its water pressure can even be adjusted by opening up the machine and turning some screws. For users who plan to experiment with different techniques, the Rancilio Silvia will not limit you in any way. The Breville Barista Express is a better option for users who seek a semi-automatic machine that is a bit more forgiving.

Analysis and Test Results


Once the sole domain of experienced baristas wielding large, heavy machines, it is now easier than ever to make espresso at home. The current offering of espresso machines has largely split into two camps: one for those that value convenience over taste and another for those that value taste over all else. Whichever camp you fall into our testing results (summarized in the table below) will be able to guide you towards the right machine. If you're not sure whether you're in the market for a super-automatic, semi-automatic, or capsule style machine, or aren't sure what all those words mean, check out our buying advice article for more information.


If an espresso machine is actually going to keep you from spending $5 on a latte every morning it must 1) produce good tasting espresso and 2) be easy and simple to use. Consequently half of our testing focused on how good each machine's final products tasted (taking both the espresso and steamed milk into account), while the other half focused on how easy the machines were to use and clean. The following sections detail the results of those individual tests.

Taste


Espresso is like wine: some will notice subtle differences in taste that can make or break a drink, while others feel it all tastes the same. To cover this spread we enlisted a diverse group of taste testers ranging from casual coffee drinkers to people who've owned an espresso machine for a few years, to professional coffee roasters. We had all of these testers drink both straight espresso and cappuccinos and lattes prepared using each machine, asking them to consider things like texture, mouthfeel, and overall taste. We then deliberated the relative qualities of each machine's offerings. Somehow that discussion got quite animated and energetic…


The Breville Barista Express was a favorite amongst our taste testers and brought home the top score of 9 out of 10 in our taste metric. The espresso it produced was full-bodied, rich, and pleasantly nuanced. Its milk wand also produced the best steamed and frothed milk in our testing, elevating this machine's lattes and cappuccinos well above the rest of the field. This was one of two machines we tested that we felt could really rival the offerings from an actual coffee shop. The other was the Rancilio Silvia, which makes a great shot, but requires so much skill to use that we wouldn't recommend it as your first machine.

The Breville Barista Express and its coffee shop style brewing process produced the best tasting espresso in our testing.
The Breville Barista Express and its coffee shop style brewing process produced the best tasting espresso in our testing.

All of the super-automatic machines we tested were tightly packed in terms of the tastiness of their brews, with the machines that used whole beans slightly besting the single serving capsule systems. Three different machines scored 7 out of 10 in this metric, putting them noticeably but not terribly far behind the top scoring Breville. In general, these machines make drinks that are good, but you're probably not going to be able to convince anybody that they came from a coffee shop. The Gaggia Brera's espresso had a good taste, but some testers felt it was slightly watery and a bit weak, even when it was set to produce its most robust shot. The steam wand was able to froth milk well and make a good cappuccino, but fell slightly short of that perfect latte worthy steamed milk. The Gaggia Anima Prestige performed very similarly to its sibling. Its espresso had a nice taste but was slightly watery with the shot getting thin towards the end of extraction. The milk drinks it made were very similar to the Brera's, but with the added convenience of an automatic milk frother. The De'Longhi Magnifica also made good but slightly weak tasting espresso in our testing. Its steam wand let us make good cappuccinos, but again couldn't quite get to that elusive perfect latte.

The incredibly convenient Gaggia Anima Prestige didn't make the best espresso in our testing  but it was close. Close enough that we often gladly traded the couple taste points for a quicker cappuccino.

Nespresso dominates the single serving espresso capsule market. We found that those capsules produce very consistent tasting espresso, regardless of what machine they're made with. Generally, our testers liked that taste, but felt it was a bit more watery than the rich shots from the top scoring Breville, and lacked just a hint of boldness compared to the super-automatic machines that used whole coffee beans as their starting point. Accordingly, all of the capsule machines we tested received a score of 6 out of 10 in our taste metric. Of those machines, the De'Longhi Lattissima Pro was the only one that had a built-in automatic milk frother. It was able to satisfy our cravings for an espresso and milk drink, but didn't create quite as much cappuccino foam as other machines, and couldn't produce that latte microfoam. Both the Nespresso Evoluo and the Nespresso Inissia don't have any built-in milk prepping capabilities, so we used the highly regarded Epica Milk Frother to turn their shots into cafe-style drinks. This resulted in some nice, foamy cappuccinos, but again couldn't quite attain that perfect latte.

Like all the capsule models we tested the Nespresso Inissia produced espresso that tasted good but not great.

At the bottom of our taste test results was the Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista, which scored a 3 out of 10. No matter how much we tinkered we couldn't get it to produce anything but very burnt and bitter tasting espresso. Its automatic milk frother created decent foam, but could not rescue the bad taste of the espresso.

Ease of Use


Apart from taste, ease of use is the most important aspect of a home espresso machine. If your machine isn't easy to use it will end up rusting in an appliance graveyard instead of providing your morning caffeine indulgence. If your machine isn't easy to use We tested ease of use by making an unhealthy amount of espresso on each machine, paying close attention to the intuitiveness of each interface. We also conducted cappuccino time trials to see how long each machine forces you to wait for your mandatory morning caffeine boost.


The Gaggia Anima Prestige earned the top score of 9 in our ease of use testing and secured our top Pick for Ease of Use Award in the process. Apart from a somewhat lengthy initial setup process everything about the Prestige is easy. All you need to do is make a few selections with some intuitive and well-labeled buttons and a clear LCD display, then just under 3 minutes later you're presented with a nice cappuccino. The Nespresso Evoluo also scored a 9 in this metric due to its incredibly simple insert capsule, press button, get espresso functionality. It even has a barcode reader that identifies what kind of capsule you've put in and modifies its settings accordingly. It didn't pick up an award for ease of use because you need a separate milk frother to make any milk drinks. However, using one we were able to make a good cappuccino in just over 2 minutes.

The intuitive Gaggia Anima Prestige produced the quickest and easiest cappuccino in our testing.

Rounding out the group of top scorers was the other single serving capsule machines we tested. The Nespresso Inissia scored an 8 out of 10. It features the most simple and straightforward operation of any of the models we tested. Just insert a capsule and press one button if you want a normal shot and another button if you want a long shot. It didn't score a 9 because that two button simplicity makes it very difficult to make any adjustments if you're not satisfied with the factory setting, and the user manual left a little to be desired. The De'Longhi Nespresso Lattissima Pro also scored an 8 in this metric. Its use of capsules again makes operation very simple, and we were able to make a cappuccino with the built-in automatic milk frother in less than 2 minutes. It missed out on a higher score because its buttons are only labeled with symbols that aren't completely obvious, so it requires a little manual reading and memorization.

The Nesresso Evoluo's bar code adorned capsules made brewing straightforward.

Just behind the top scorers in our ease of use testing was the Gaggia Brera, which earned a 7 out of 10. Its super-automatic functionality meant making espresso was straightforward and simple. It lost some points because using its built-in steam wand pushed its cappuccino making time over 4 minutes, and its buttons aren't intuitively labeled and take a minute to get used to. The Breville Barista Express received the relatively low score of 6 in our ease of use testing. This was mostly due to the fact it requires the user to select the grind size, grind, and tamp the coffee manually. If you're interested in having a full espresso making experience this may sound great, but it is undeniably not as easy as the super-automatic machines. It also logged the slowest time in our cappuccino time trial: 5 and a half minutes (though it did make the tastiest one). It somewhat makes up for this with a top-notch user manual and a greater user interface. The De'Longhi Magnifica also scored a 6. It can make espresso at the push of a few buttons and using its steam wand we made a cappuccino in just over four minutes. However, its buttons are only labeled with symbols, which can be a little confusing, and its steam wand often shoots water onto the counter while heating up.

The Mr. Coffee requires tamping the grinds yourself  and the included tamper feels very flimsy.
The Mr. Coffee requires tamping the grinds yourself, and the included tamper feels very flimsy.

Again at the bottom of the score sheet was the Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista, which scored a 4 out of 10. It has a decent interface, but its water tank is very tall and difficult to fill in shallower sinks. Its portafilter is also quite difficult to clean, which pushed its cappuccino making time up to 5 minutes. Not to mention it requires the use of a separate coffee grinder.

Ease of Cleaning


An arduous cleanup process can ruin even the best caffeine high. After making more shots of espresso than we can count, we have a very good idea of what cleaning each one of these machines entails. For this metric we evaluated daily cleaning (portafilters and steam wands), weekly cleaning, things like emptying and washing the drip tray, and long-term cleaning, which is mostly comprised of running a descaling process. This flushes a solution through the machine that removes and mineral buildup. This can be required anywhere from every two months to just once or twice a year depending on how often you use the machine and how hard your water is. See our buying advice article for more info. While no machine felt particularly difficult to clean, we did see significant differences between models.


Three models shared the top of our ease of cleaning podium, all receiving a score of 8 out of 10. The Nespresso Inissia's capsule system leaves almost no cleanup unless you use a separate milk frother to make a milk drink. Its descaling process only took 15 minutes and was fairly straightforward when using the included instructions. The De'Longhi Nespresso Lattissima Pro also has a cleanup free capsule system. The descaling process was easy and all parts of the automatic milk frother are dishwasher safe (and it can be stored in the fridge to negate the need for daily cleaning). the De'Longhi Magnifica was the only non-capsule machine to grace the top upper tier of our ease of cleaning testing. This was largely due to its super simple and automated descaling process, and the fact that its steam wand breaks down into multiple pieces, making it easy to clean all the nooks and crannies. The only downside is that none of its parts are dishwasher safe.

Capsule machines require no cleanup when making espresso  but if you want to add milk cleaning the seperate milk frother can be a bit of a drag.

The Nespresso Evoluo fell slightly behind the other capsule machines in our ease of cleaning testing, scoring a 7 out of 10. Like its compadres, it requires essentially zero daily cleaning, unless you use a separate frother to make milk drinks. It lost points for its descaling process, which took us over 35 minutes and went through so much water it became a hands-on process for refilling the water tanks and making sure things weren't overflowing. The Gaggia Anima Prestige also scored a 7. Its automatic milk frother can be stored in the fridge to avoid daily cleanings, and every part of it except the tank (which is easy to clean by hand) are dishwasher safe. It descaling process is also easy. The only downside is that the drip tray fills up more quickly than other machines, so it requires a bit more frequent emptying and cleaning.

The De'Longhi Nespresso Lattissima Pro  with is capsule brewing system and built-in frother  was one of the easiest models to clean.
The De'Longhi Nespresso Lattissima Pro, with is capsule brewing system and built-in frother, was one of the easiest models to clean.

Starting off the bottom, but not abysmal, scores was the Gaggia Brera, which earned a 6 out of 10. Its steam wand can collect some buildup on the inside, and thus requires some diligent cleaning if it's used often. The descaling process was also fairly involved and lengthy - it took us over 40 minutes. The Breville Barista Express also scored a 6 in this metric. This was mostly due to its semi-automatic design which requires wiping out the portafilter after each use and cause the drip tray to fill up a bit faster, necessitating more frequent emptying and cleaning. The steam wand also must be wiped off and cleaned after each use, and the descaling process was straightforward but fairly hands on. Finally the Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista scored a 5. Its milk frother is completely dishwasher safe. However, its portafilter is somewhat difficult to clean and its descaling process requires constant attention to make sure everything is going smoothly.

The pucks that spit out of super-automatic machines  like those from the Gaggia Brera above  are generally mess free.

Milk Steaming/Frothing


For this metric, we more closely evaluated the quality each machine's technique for preparing milk, rather than just assessing how it tasted when added to a shot of espresso. We did this because we know some consumers will be more concerned with the milk quality than anything else. This would namely be those that care as much or more about matching the texture of coffee shop latte than they do about the taste notes of the espresso.

If you're looking for the perfect latte steamed milk that can create latte art, the Breville Barista Express can satisfy those mandates. Accordingly, it scored a 9 out of 10 in this metric. Its steam wand takes a bit of practice, but once you find its sweet spot you can create delightfully creamy steamed milk with just a hint of foam on top, exactly what the most exacting milk steamers will be looking for. The only Machine that matched this quality in our testing was the Rancilio Silvia, which is a great machine if you already know how to pull a shot but is frustratingly difficult to use for beginners.

Like all steam wands the Breville's requires a little practice to master  but it made by far the best milk in our testing.
Like all steam wands the Breville's requires a little practice to master, but it made by far the best milk in our testing.

After the Breville we had a second tier of machines, all of which scored a 7 out of 10. These machines generally could create steamed milk with a decent texture and some nice fluffy frothed milk, though with some imperfections. The De'Longhi Nespresso Lattissima Pro and the Gaggia Anima Prestige both have automatic milk frothers that are very consistent and create well-frothed milk, but the bubbles in the foam are a bit larger than the ideal 'microfoam' that creates the perfect cappuccino topping. The steamed milk from these machines tastes more like milk that was heated in a microwave rather than having the velvety texture we were hoping for. The De'Longhi Magnifica's steam wand lent a little more adjustability to the milk prepping process, but in our testing it produced steamed and frothed milk very similar to the Lattissima and the Prestige, though with much more required effort.

We found that automatic milk frothers  like the one on the De'Longhi Nespresso Lattissima Pro  steam and froth milk very easily. However  they couldn't match the rich texture achieved by the Breville's steam wand.

The Gaggia Brera and the Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista both scored a 6 in this metric. The Gaggia Brera's steam wand create a nice foam when frothing, but the foam bubbles were larger, making it feel less creamy than the foam produced by the higher scoring models. It could steam milk fairly well but lacked the nice texture we were looking for, and we could never get that small layer of foam on top that is indicative of perfectly steamed milk. The Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista produced similar steamed and frothed milk, though it did so with a more convenient automatic frother.

The Gaggia Brera's steam wand could whip up some foam for a nice cappuccino  but was not quite as adept as the automatic milk frothers we tested.

Finally, both the Nespresso Evoluo and the Nespresso Inissia scored a 1 out of 10 in this metric. This was solely because neither machine offers a built-in method for preparing milk. We were able to get some decent milk drink results from these machines by using a standalone milk frother. In our testing we used the Epica Milk Frother and the Nespresso Aeroccino Plus.

Is One of these Machines Really Cheaper than Starbucks?


We know that for many users the decision to buy an espresso machine isn't really about wanting to drink espresso at home, but is more financially driven. And we hear you, it can be painful to shell out as much as you'd spend on a cheap lunch just to get a cup of coffee in the morning. So we did a breakdown to see if these machines really can save you money.

Our first analysis looked at how much it cost to produce a shot of espresso from each machine. For the units that use fresh beans we assumed a cost of $12 for a pound of coffee. To see if they can save you money we compared these to the price of a shot of espresso at Starbucks, which costs roughly $2, depending on your region. We know what you're thinking, you've never made it out of Starbucks only having spent $2. If straight espresso shots aren't your thing you probably get one of Starbucks' specialty lattes, which average around $4 (again, depending on your region). So we threw that into our comparison as well. Our results are in the graph below:


So clearly these machines can make espresso much more cheaply than going to Starbucks. However, they do have the initial cost of buying the machine, a cost that going to Starbucks doesn't have. So we also did a lifetime cost per shot calculation that takes the cost of each machine into account. For this calculation, we assumed an 8-year lifespan for each machine, and an average of 300 shots made per year, for a total of 2400 shots:


So even taking the cost of the machine into account, these products can save you a significant amount of money over going to Starbucks (if you're a latte drinker even factoring in the negligible cost of milk, which shakes out to about $0.17 per drink, won't change much). Also, this analysis makes the more inexpensive capsule machines look less appealing, as the additional cost of the capsules quickly adds up.

Conclusion


Bringing an espresso machine into your home can be a complete game changer. Being able to make a high-quality morning pick me up (or hangover cure) without leaving the house feels nothing short of magical. We hope our test results and analysis have cleared the confusion that can surround choosing the right caffeine contraption.
