If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I’m a MAJOR coffee lover! I’m so excited to be sharing this round-up of the best automatic espresso machine options out there.
I’ve tried everything from a French Press, Nespresso, Keurig, or even a regular coffee pot and have found that none of them taste like getting a coffee at a coffee shop. It wasn’t until I tried a latte at a friend’s house where she made it using an espresso machine and my mind was blown.
I never knew that an espresso machine would be such a game-changer so I’ve been doing some research in finding the best automatic espresso machine to add to my house.
There are seriously so many options out there so I hope you find this quick and easy guide helpful in finding the right one for you!
You can find most of these coffee machines on Amazon and you get the perks of speedy delivery. But you can also shop around to see where they’re having the best deal.
10 Best Automatic Espresso Machines
The Jura S8 automatic coffee machine is the new and improved version of the Jura Impressa XS90. It has a one-touch automatic brewing button that can make 15 different types of drinks like cappuccinos, macchiatos, espressos, and many more.
The coolest part is the automatic milk frother that makes the perfect milk foam to top your coffee. It also has a ceramic burr grinder so you can enjoy freshly ground beans.
Now you can enjoy barista-style coffee from home with the touch of one button and you’ll be saving tons of $$.
The Gaggia Anima Prestige is one of the more affordable super-automatic espresso machines. You can make 5 different types of coffee with the touch of a button.
Everything on the machine is programmable to help you save time in the mornings and to perfect making your everyday coffee. It’s made out of stainless steel giving it a modern look to match your kitchen and any other appliances.
My favorite part of this machine is the automatic cleaning feature because it alerts you when you need to descale it or it will begin cleaning itself when you switch it on or off.
The Jura Ena 8 superautomatic espresso machine is one of the smallest machines, so if you’re looking for something less bulky to fit in a smaller space this is the perfect option.
With one touch you can make up to 10 specialty drinks like a latte macchiato, flat white, and many more along those lines.
The water tank can carry up to 32 ounces so you won’t have to worry about filling it up all the time. I love that you can choose a coffee strength level depending on how strong you like your coffee—some days I prefer a stronger blend when I need a pick me up.
You can also set settings on the machine from your phone via the J.O.E. app, which is super convenient.
The Breville Barista Touch Espresso Machine is one of the more popular coffee makers. There’s a touch screen, of course, and all you need to do is swipe through the pictures to pick what you want to drink—this machine makes up to 8 different coffees.
My favorite part is the automatic steam wand that lets you adjust the milk temperature and texture. You can even make latte art with the microfoam it makes.
You can use whole bean coffee or ground coffee in this machine to make your espresso drinks. There’s a built-in grinder so no need to get any additional coffee tools.
One thing to note is that this espresso machine is on the more complicated side with all of its features and will take a few days to get a hang of it.
The Breville Oracle Touch Espresso Machine is the more advanced version of the Breville Barista Touch Espresso Machine. The difference between the two is that the Breville Oracle Touch has a fully automatic tamping feature, a dual broiler heater, and an auto PID sensor for milk texturing.
If you decide to go with this super-automatic machine be prepared to spend an extra thousand dollars on it. I recommend making a pros and cons list to help narrow things down in finding out what’s important to you.
You can make 8 different coffees and set them to your desired preferences to make coffee making in the mornings a lot easier.
The price is definitely high, but worth it if you’re looking to get barista-level coffee from home.
The Philips 3200 Series Fully Automatic Espresso Machine is another more affordable coffee machine. Although, I think this one might be a little better than the Gaggia Anima Prestige.
This one has 6 different coffee settings and has a LatteGo feature that makes silky-smooth milk froth and cleans up in 15 seconds—how cool is that? The ceramic grinder also has a wide range of grinding options from ultrafine to coarse.
You also get to enjoy the touch screen feature making it easy to decide which coffee you want. The best part of the machine is the aroma seal that keeps the grounded beans fresh.
Cleaning this machine is super easy thanks to the fully removable brew group. Nothing is better than making a great cup of coffee and having a quick clean-up time.
The Philips 5400 Fully Automatic Espresso Machine is almost identical to the 3200 except the 5400 can save up to 3 user profiles and has an AquaClean function that lets the machine brew up to 5,000 cups without descaling.
The LatteGo and drip tray are both dishwasher safe making it super easy to clean up. The LatteGo attachment is also perfect for steaming milk into a silky-smooth base for lattes and cappuccinos.
The 5400 also can also make up to 8 different coffee styles while the 3200 can only make 6. So there are very subtle differences but if you want more then go with the Philips 5400 style.
The Saeco Xelsis is one of the fanciest digital super-automatic machines for espressos. With a fancy design, you can expect a big price tag—this one is really expensive.
This espresso machine will give you full control with its primer programming, which means you can control everything from the milk and espresso volume to dose, temperature, and texture.
It has automatic brewing and lets you choose between 15 different coffee styles. I love the ceramic grinders because they extract so much flavor and prevent the coffee from overheating and tasting burnt.
You won’t have to worry about cleaning this machine too much since it has a HygieSteam automated steam cleaning system. Your morning coffee literally can’t get any easier than using this machine.
The Miele CM6350 Fully Automatic Espresso Machine is another great option. This machine performs mostly the same as all the other machines I’ve mentioned the only difference is this machine is aesthetically pleasing.
It has a very modern design and comes in a black or white option. This would easily blend in with your space and not look too bulky.
Everything is one-touch but there is not touch screen display just buttons along the top. The best part about this machine is that it can make two cups of coffee at once.
If you’re in the mood for some drip coffee, the Miele can also make a pot of it while also making an espresso on the side.
Last but not least on the list is the De’Longhi Eletta Top Espresso Machine. This machine was specifically designed for cappuccino and latte lovers.
The LatteCrema System is super unique because is it can create a custom drink layered with velvety rich, dense milk foam that lasts from the first sip to the last. Drinking cappuccinos with this machine is going to be a game-changer.
You can also make up to 2 cups of espresso at a time on this machine. A manual milk frother is also included in the set in case you want to do it yourself.
While this machine can only make 3 classic drinks, there are 13 grinder settings to make the freshest coffee flavor.
This one also doesn’t have a touch screen but instead has a sensor touch control panel.
I hope this espresso machine review and guide helps you find the right one for you.
I’m still trying to narrow things do with a pros and cons list since this is a bigger investment, but I know that whatever machine I choose I’m going to be sipping on delicious barista coffee very soon!
