Best espresso machines 2022

The best espresso machines, whether you want to enjoy espresso, cappuccino or lattes.

The best espresso machines can bring your favorite coffee shop to you, and with so many machines catering to the home market these days you might not even need to brush up on your barista skills. Those looking to experiment with multiple aspects of their coffee's brewing process, or make the most of high quality coffee beans will find a particularly worthwhile investment in the best espresso machines. Not only will you have plenty of control over your brew, but you'll also be in a far better position to accurately taste a range of blends, brew styles, and drink types. 

It should be noted that the features on machines designed for beginners can vary from those aimed at professionals. If you're looking to outfit your kitchen with a premium espresso machine, it's worth making sure you're picking up a machine designed for your skill level. 

That said, the vast majority of machines can offer silky smooth coffee without you having to learn the ins and outs of pre-infusion, grind sizes, and tamping pressure. The best espresso machines combine all the benefits of the best coffee makers - they're reliable, easy to use and maintain, produce high quality coffee and look phenomenal. Plus they can save you all those trips down to the coffee shop.

The best espresso for you will be determined by how you like to drink and make your coffee. Do you want to be hands-on by measuring and tamping coffee you ground yourself (in which case we would recommend checking out the best coffee grinders on the market)? Or would you rather push a button and let the machine do all the hard work. There's something for everyone, and we're bringing you all the best espresso machines you can buy right now.

The Breville Bambino Plus impressed us in our testing, consistently producing high quality espresso and offering an excellent automatic milk frother for that extra professional finishing touch. It's difficult to produce a bad coffee from this particular espresso machine, and with a speedy three second heat up time you'll be enjoying a fantastically brewed shot in no time at all. 

Like many of the best espresso machines, you can adjust the espresso settings for a shorter or longer shot, however the adjustable pre-infusion settings here are particularly impressive. Similarly, being able to customize both the temperature and texture of the milk while also automatically steaming luscious micro-foam was a particular draw in our testing.

Some reviewers note that the portafilter that holds the filter with ground coffee can stick after you pull a shot, an issue we've also experienced on occasion. Users who love to be hands-on may balk at trading customization of each cup for consistency, but most people will find the compromise worth the guarantee that you’ll get the same rich, nuanced drink every time.
