Test results
CHOICE Expert Rating (%) Expand to view more details.

This overall score is made up of taste (60%), ease of use (20%), milk frothing (15%) and coffee temperature consistency over consecutive cups (5%).

Taste test score (%) Expand to view more details.

Three experts test the espressos in a 'blind' tasting, checking the colour and thickness of the crema (the tan-coloured foam on the top of an espresso), aroma, flavour, mouth-feel (for example, creaminess or wateriness) and aftertaste.

Ease of use score (%) Expand to view more details.

We test how easy the machines are to use by trying the controls, filling the water tank and the bean hopper, adjusting the grinder, making a coffee, cleaning inside and out, and programming a coffee.

Milk frothing score (%) Expand to view more details.

We experiment with each machine to find how it best froths milk, looking for fine, pourable froth.

Coffee temperature consistency score (%) Expand to view more details.

We measure the consistency of four consecutive coffees for each machine after warming it up for five minutes.

Recommended products
Recommended Expand to view more details.

CHOICE recommends automatic espresso machines with an overall score of 70% or above, so long as they also score 70% or above for taste and at least 54% or above for milk frothing.

Removable water reservoir Expand to view more details.

Some can be completely removed for refilling while others need to be filled at the unit. All tested models had removeable reservoirs, however, being able to fill the reservoir without removing it helps to preserve the connection points.
