How To Choose Espresso Machines - Buying Guide

Espresso machines are leaning to a more expensive kitchen appliance.  But for coffee lovers and barista aspirants, they are worth the investment.  They also vary in boiler type and brewing speed.  


The more high-tech, the higher the price is so check your budget or allot a budget to make this machine as an investment rather than an expense.

Know Their Difference from Coffee Makers

Know Their Difference from Coffee Makers

It is important to differentiate espresso machines from coffee makers. Physically, espresso machines look more complex because of their innovative features. One common feature of many espresso machines that coffee makers do not have is milk steamer or frother.


Espresso machines use finely grounded coffee called espresso as compared to coffee makers, which accept any size of ground coffee. In brewing, espresso machines use high pressure to push the water through ground coffee beans. This method brings out the rich and creamy coffee as compared to common coffee makers.  

Pick Among the Types of Espresso Machines

Pick Among the Types of Espresso Machines

Purchase a fully-automatic or super-automatic machine if you want an effortless creamier coffee. A fully-automatic machine is using a single-touch brewing method – once switched on, the machine controls the whole operation. A super-automatic espresso machine is one notch higher because of its automatic coffee grinder.


But for enthusiasts or aspiring latte artists or coffee baristas, semi-automatic or manual machine is more recommended depending on how hands-on you want to be in making espressos. Metal-based espresso machines are heavier and more expensive but more durable as compared to the plastic-based.   

Select User-Friendly Machines

Select User-Friendly Machines

Every machine comes with a user manual but let’s face it, only a few have the patience or will to read it. The convenience or ease of use still weighs heavily as one of the key points in choosing. 


The fewer buttons and switches, the better. User-friendliness also means easy to clean - removing the residue and disassembling parts must not be a daunting task at all.


User-friendliness is meant for safety for both the users and the machines. These machines are also sensitive, especially they use electricity, temperature, and pressure. So, searching for some online video tutorials on the use will also be a great help in choosing the best one.

Size and Capacity Matter

Size and Capacity Matter

Consider the available kitchen or pantry space that will be allotted for your espresso machine. You may also consider purchasing lighter and handy espresso machines if ever you want to carry it for family bonding or coffee cocktail parties with friends – after the quarantine of course.


A typical water tank of an espresso machine could serve up to 8 cups. So if you are into a big family or an active house party host, you might need to consider a larger tank or would allow plumbing to connect the machine directly to a pipe for easy water refills.

An Integrated Milk Frother Is the Best Choice

An Integrated Milk Frother Is the Best Choice

An espresso machine with an attached milk frother can do wonders for coffee enthusiasts. Milk widens the range of coffee flavors that can be done with the machine – cappuccino, latte, and even mocha. Latte artists can practice their caffeinated work with frothed milk.


Moreover, espresso machines can serve kids and non-coffee drinkers because they can use the machines for hot milk and even hot chocolate. For sure, kids will be excitingly curious about this new “toy”. So family bonding can now happen in the kitchen with safety precautions.
