This wiki has been updated 19 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Lovers of Italian coffee know that it can be nearly impossible to get an authentic cup when they aren't in-country or at one of those fancy — read "really expensive" — cafes. Luckly, Gaggia, a company founded in Milan and still producing their machines there, has come to the rescue. With one of these in your kitchen, you'll be able to create espressos to match those you had on your Rome vacation. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 13, 2018:

We realize that some people want a machine that will do all the heavy lifting for them, while others may want a little more control over the frothing and brewing process. For that reason, we included simple one-touch models, as well as some that require you to get a bit more involved. We also made sure there are options to fit every budget.

4. Brera Super

5. Anima Standard

6. Carezza De Luxe

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs.

His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
