Enjoying a barista-style coffee drink is now a luxury you can enjoy at home thanks to automatic espresso makers. And if you’re still new to homebrewing, where else should you turn to but the tried-and-tested and accessible machines from Mr. Coffee? Many people swear by Mr. Coffee’s drip brewers, and the brand made sure to uphold that quality in their impressive lineup of espresso makers. Here we have the top Mr. Coffee espresso makers that you’d definitely want to add to your kitchen!
Espresso makers require a certain level of skill to operate but if you need something that does all the work by pressing one button, the innovative Mr. Coffee One-touch CoffeeHouse is what you’re looking for! This model can create your favorite espresso-based drinks such as latte and cappuccino by simply pushing a single button. It has a large milk reservoir and an automatic milk frother that foams up your milk hassle-free, as well as a 19-bar Italian pump that extracts the right amount of coffee flavor from the grounds to your cup. It’s slightly more expensive than the other items in this list, but it’s definitely worth the price!
The espresso makers used in most coffee shops tend to fall under the $500 or more price range, which can be pretty expensive if you’re simply looking for a budget-friendly unit with similar features. If you want something more affordable, we highly recommend the Mr. Coffee Automatic Double-Shot Espresso System. It has a 15-bar pump system that can make 2 single espresso shots in a single brew. The frothing arm also allows you to master your milk steaming and foaming skills to create your very own cappuccino. The set also comes with espresso machine essentials such as a thermal block heating system and a tamping tool. A great way to start your home barista journey!
Do you have a limited counter space? The Mr. Coffee Steam Espresso has a trim profile that can fit even the most cramped kitchen counter. The water tank is found on the upper part of the machine instead of the sides or behind the machine, which is usually the reason why other automatic espresso makers have a bulky design. A milk frother is located at the right side, which can be operated by simply turning the control knob on the left. The machine includes a measuring scoop that doubles as a tamper, a stainless steel frothing pitcher, 2 ceramic cups, and a glass carafe with indicators for 2 and 4 shots of espresso. All this at a very affordable price!
If you’re looking for a new Mr. Coffee 4-Cups Steam Espresso System but without the starter set, you can buy the model with the machine only to save up a few bucks. It has all the features of the Steam Espresso that you’re used to using: a frothing wand, glass carafe with indicators, a water tank placed on the upper portion of the machine, and a measuring scoop/tamper. There are slight differences in design as well, but you can still expect the same top-notch performance at such a low price!
The Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista is getting quite a lot of attention from home brewers, and rightfully so. For such an affordable semi-automatic espresso machine, this does all the work for you from start to finish! In a single press of a button, the Cafe Barista can brew a strong shot of espresso and a frothy cup of cappuccino and latte. What’s more, you can easily adjust the type of foam you get with its special froth control knob setting! Cleaning is made easy too, since it has an automatic cleaning setting that keeps your machine at peak performance. Amazing, right?
