I will talk about percolator coffee makers. Mr. Coffee has been in the coffee-brewing business since 1970, making the brand among the most popular espresso machine makers in the industry. The Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista Espresso Maker is a semi-automatic machine, owing to the fact that the user will still need to place the coffee beans manually, and adjust the filters as necessary. Its automatic features are covered by the milk frothing mechanism and the 15 bar pressure pump brewing system. Despite the small manual tasks, the Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista Espresso Maker is still easy to use and clean.
Sowtech Espresso Machine 3.5 Bar 4-Cup Espresso Maker Cappuccino Machine With Steamed-Milk Frother and Carafe : “This product exactly serves the purpose of making espresso at home,” one reviewer writes, echoing dozens of others who love this machine’s size. “It’s small and doesn’t take up much counter space,” another says. The compact machine still includes a milk frother, a feature mentioned in dozens of reviews, and many also appreciate that it’s easy to use. One shopper could even “set it up without the manual.” From box to brew, reviewers are happy with the results — even one barista gives a seal of approval. “I was a bit skeptical that the drinks would turn out, but after my first try I was pleasantly surprised … This machine has made perfect lattes for me every time.”
Best Design: Medelco 8-Cup Glass Stovetop Percolator: While a clear top knob lets you watch the brewing process, this glass percolator lets you watch the color of the coffee as it transforms from clear water to perfectly brewed coffee. If you prefer a lighter brew, this also lets you stop the process early, when the coffee is the color you prefer. This brews up to 8 cups of coffee. The glass is borosilicate, so it’s resistant to thermal shock and safe on the stove. The handle made from phenolic plastic and is designed to stay cool during cooking, so you can pour safely. The lid is made from the same material as the handle, so it also remains cool during brewing and serving. A heat diffuser is included with this pot so it can safely be used on coil-style electric stoves. When cooking is done, this is dishwasher safe.
To make lattes and cappuccinos on our own, we tested Nespresso’s own Aeroccino Black, the company’s most affordable stand-alone milk frother, against a milk frother from Capresso. We chose this Capresso over other frothers popular on Amazon because it came from a known coffee-gear company and the shape looked easier to use than other cylindrical models. We didn’t love either frother. The Aeroccino heated up the milk and made an even microfoam so fine we could barely tell it was there. The Capresso, on the other hand, produced a froth that was pleasantly thick but made up of large, uneven bubbles. We also preferred Capresso’s mug-shaped frother and its easy-pour spout over the Aeroccino’s cylindrical shape, which offers no spout to prevent spilling.

Nespresso CitiZ Espresso Machine by De’Longhi: This model is the same as the CitiZ&Milk but does not come integrated with a milk frother. The compact design makes it a good choice for urban dwellers with limited counter space, while still providing a good range of features. You can automatically make Espresso or Lungo drinks using the programmable buttons, with the option to reprogram them for your desired volume required for different recipes. The drip tray also folds to accommodate taller glasses. The high-pressure pump produces 19 bars of pressure to perfectly extract the aroma and flavor of your chosen Nespresso coffee capsule.
