Espresso Machine Deals
Breville’s Barista Express is one of our favorite all-in-one espresso machines. It includes a burr grinder, which lets you grind your coffee directly into the portafilter, fresh for each and every shot so you get the best possible flavor out of our beans. It’s literally all you need to get started with making café-worthy espresso at home.
Take everything we said about the Barista Express, and add onto it an automated tamping mechanism. That’s the Barista Express Impress. That’s not a dig, it’s genuinely a great feature and it helps you take care of one of the other variables that can make or break a good shot of espresso: how much pressure goes into tamping the grounds. It’s easy even for a seasoned barista to press too hard or not hard enough, resulting in a less-than-perfect shot.
This machine is a bit of an upgrade over Breville’s other all-in-one machines. It includes a digital display with programmable shot options and a new heating system that’s much faster. That means you can reliably steam milk and pull espresso shots without too much downtime in between, while you wait for the boiler to heat the water back up.
De’Longhi’s La Specialista Maestro basically makes your entire cup of coffee for you. It’s a high-end espresso machine with a built-in grinder, but its special milk-frothing system will steam and froth your milk at the touch of a button–you don’t even have to hold the pitcher. It features easy-to-use buttons and knobs right on the front panel, and the integrated grinder means you can grind directly into your portafilter for super-quick, super-fresh espresso whenever you want it.
This machine is somewhere in between a fully-automated espresso machine and a semiautomated espresso machine, like the Barista Express and Barista Pro. It includes a big touch screen, where you can just choose the kind of drink you want to make. It walks you through everything you need to do and even steams the milk for you (all you have to do is hold the pitcher).
Just like the Barista Express and the Barista Express Impress, the Barista Touch Impress is the slightly snazzier version of the Barista Touch. It includes an automatic tamping mechanism for getting just the right pressure every single time and a quicker heating mechanism so you’re never more than a few seconds away from a shot of espresso.
If the Specialista Maestro is still a little too manual operation for you, the Dinamica Plus is probably the way to go. This little thing is a fully automatic espresso machine. It will grind, tamp and brew your coffee, and it’ll even froth the milk, all on its own. You just push a button and this little countertop robot makes you your favorite coffee drink. It has one other feature I like: The milk tank is right there on the front so it’s easy to take off and clean after each and every use (which you should absolutely do!).
The Specialista Arte espresso machine is a bit like the Maestro, but it doesn’t feature the auto-rinsing feature or the self-steaming milk feature. But by taking out those features, you save quite a bit of money if those are both things you’d rather handle on your own. This one includes an integrated burr grinder just like the Maestro, so you can grind directly into your portafilter.
Coffee Gear Deals
Be sure to read our Best Coffee Subscriptions guide to get access to freshly roasted beans.
We’re big fans of these vacuum containers. By sucking all the air out of the container, they’re great for keeping your coffee beans fresh. They’re also good at keeping special herbs extra fresh for longer.
Sometimes it’s nice to use a pour-over with something other than a coffee mug. This double-walled carafe from Fellow is sleek and stylish, and it’ll keep your coffee way warmer, for way longer, than you might expect. It’s an excellent accompaniment to any mug-top pour-over setup, and a great way to treat yourself on a chilly autumn morning.
The Stagg EKG kettle is the perfect option for those who love making pour-over coffee—particularly because the gooseneck gives you precise control when pouring water over the coffee grounds. It also comes equipped with a temperature control knob and LCD display that allows you to heat up the water at any temperature you’d like. This is the lowest price we’ve tracked.
Investing in nice glassware is an underrated way to make your home coffee setup just a bit more relaxing and meditative. Pull that shot of espresso, pour it into this cup, top it off with some steamed milk, and treat yourself to a morning latte curled up on your couch. You deserve it.
