Coffee & Espresso Machines
But the enhanced machine—and price—delivers a significantly faster startup, upgraded grinder and LCD display. The integrated stainless steel burr grinder has 30 settings compared to 16 for the Express, and automatic or manual dosing for single and double shot espresso. The Pro also provides a water filter, cup warming surface, swiveling steam wand and cleaning light warning. It heats up incredibly fast, just under 3 seconds, though the user will still want to warm up the portafilter.
The LCD screen counts downtime on the grind and extraction, as well as provides descaling and maintenance alerts, etc. The dial pressure gauge from the Breville Barista Express model is gone—but the timer countdown, and, more importantly, visual and taste confirmation of the shot should determine adjustments and dial in settings.

Profitec Pro Profitec has combined German design with Italian manufacturing in a line of quality espresso machines since Their entry level, the Pro , shares many of the same features as its higher-priced lines, including a dual boiler, PID temperature control and a quality build.
The appearance is less utilitarian than the Pro with a classic chassis and guard rails on its top where cups are warmed. This Mr. Coffee machine sits at the comfortable intersection where ease of use, automation, and affordability meet. It can extract a flavorful espresso from almost any beans and grind, and its milk reservoir will automatically mix a cappuccino or latte for you.
This is basically a sturdier, better-designed version of the Mr.
Like the cheaper version, you have to load coffee in the portafilter basket yourself and twist it on use a fine grind and tamp it down with some pressure for the best taste , but the machine can mix a cappuccino or latte macchiato for you at the press of a button. It has two sizes of each, and a manual mode that will just keep foaming or extracting espresso until you tell it to stop. On the downside, you'll need to clean the milk canister at least once a week you can keep it in the fridge. It also won't extract quite as much rich espresso flavor as the Breville machines below, but it is a lot easier to use.
One day, for fun, I put standard Maxwell House coffee into it. It pulls as nice an espresso as it can from almost anything. Buy Mr.
At first, the Barista Express seemed too hardcore for me—it's basically a coffee shop in a box. The built-in pressure-activated conical burr grinder gives you fresh grounds however you like them, and the pressure gauge and options let you adjust the water temperature and shot amount. You have to froth your own milk, and the steam wand makes it easier than the competition, with a handle and the ability to tilt in any direction. It cleans itself and you can get hot water from the machine to brew tea or make an Americano.
Because it can do so much, the learning curve is steep. The manual is a little dense, and it's hard to know what to do with all of the included accessories, at least to start. There's a stainless steel milk jug, magnetic tamper, trimming tool, and more. Tip: Use the double-walled filters—they deliver better crema—and when heating your milk, try to position your steam wand just below the surface.
If you have it right, the milk will spin as it's heating. Slowly lower the jug to add foam. Like the Mr. Coffee One-Touch Coffeehouse, this machine's integrated milk container has its pros and cons. You will have to remember to remove and refrigerate it each morning and clean it every few days or it could clog up—clean-up is easy, thankfully. Milk tends to come out a little foamier than I prefer for a latte, and it took me some time to understand what size glasses I needed for each drink a double latte, for instance, is 15 ounces, but a double cappuccino is only 10 ounces.
The slide-out booster is nice for smaller glasses. This machine has a remarkable number of features squeezed into a compact countertop footprint of 7. I found the learning curve on the Bambino Plus to be very steep. You fill up the water talk, fill the portafilter basket and the milk jug to the indicated fill lines, slide them into their respective spots, and push a button. In my testing, the two-shot setting outputs a little less than the advertised two ounces of espresso.
