The price tag for that machine is a bit steep though. So if you know you’ve got an espresso machine to buy then you probably will want to have a look at the cheaper options too.

The best cheaper options include the Delonghi EC702 (the one I’ve got!) and the super cheap Delonghi EC155. Just remember you get what you pay for.

Breville Barista Express

A good compromise between the more budget models and the expensive super-automatics is the Breville Barista Express. I consider it to be one of the best looking espresso machines AND it has a built in grinder.

That means you can put your fresh beans in the top and it will grinds them and brew the espresso all at once. And it’s well cheaper than a super-automatic. Pretty awesome.

But there are many more choices when it comes to espresso machines. For more options check out our espresso machine comparison table or see the best selling espresso machines updated hourly
