For me, the best espresso machine under 200 for home is the one that doesn’t let me wait for minutes. Seconds are ideal. I believe, coffee freaks have similar opinions. If there are espresso makers, which can create any coffee in seconds, why would we choose the ones which requires some minutes to make a cup of coffee? I was surprised to see that there are espresso makers that need one minute for creating a cup of any kind of coffee. I can imagine how much such coffee makers cost. It may reach thousands of dollars, but they are worth possessing, especially for hotels or cafés in which they need fast service for customers with various demands servings. Some of them don’t want to drink coffee with certain temperatures, while they also demand of various strengths for their coffee. (Read how to troubleshoot your espresso here.)
Of course, homeowners like you can own that one-minute-espresso maker. Everything is easy for anyone who can afford buying anything. But, for those who are in budget, there are still lots of espresso makers that don’t break their bank account. They’re not only luxurious in design, but they can be more than just espresso makers. Some of them are available in less than $200, as long as buyers can find the greatest sale from online stores. Yet, most of them only offer one-strength coffee, so they are only for those, who love thick espresso or cappuccino.
It means, the best espresso makers are different from one person to another. Some people don’t demand too much on their espresso coffee machine as they only need fast, one-touch button machine for a cup of espresso. While others really need to have a fully-automatic coffee machine, with various coffee strengths in less than a minute. Well, there are some people who only need a very simple coffee maker that they can bring anywhere. Even if they rarely go anywhere, though. Such espresso makers still can ensure such a fresh brewed cup of espresso at any time with very simple touches. They don’t cost more than $50 and they are still very durable.
