If you don't mind a little learning curve and elbow grease, this is the best espresso you can make at home
An excellent machine if your familiar with the process of manual brewing, and already have a high-quality grinder
Top Pick Award
If you value convenience over all else this machine will make a good cappuccino at the push of a button
If you like capsule style machines and want an automatic milk frother this is the machine for you
Decent all around machine, but the price is high for what you get
Makes top notch espresso if you're experienced at manually pulling shots, but this machine may flummox beginners
If you're main concern is saving money on cafe drinks in the long run, this is the perfect machine for you
If you already have a good grinder and you find it for below list price, this machine is a decent buy
Good for those that will pay a bit extra for convenience and would like to be able to make coffee as well
Top Pick Award
Foolproof espresso that tastes pretty good, butt he capsules are a little pricey
Top Pick Award
Great for more remote camping, but other portable models serve car camping and general travel a bit better
A machine with few bright spots, especially considering there are other much more capable machines at the same price point
Perfect for road trips and car camping excursions if you just can't leave your cappuccino behind
Very bitter taste made this our least favorite machine
