The Dual Boiler from Sage by Heston Blumenthal is a serious machine aimed at people who want the full coffee shop experience at home. It’s exceptionally well made, has industrial-quality components and dual boilers so you can steam milk and pour espresso at the same time. More importantly, it delivers amazing coffee. It’s expensive, but for the real enthusiast, it’s the best. If, however, you want (or need) more of a helping hand but still want the very best espresso, then you should definitely consider Sage’s Oracle Touch instead: it has the same coffee-making skills as the Dual Boiler, but adds a touchscreen to help you make the perfect coffee time after time (read our full review here) 👍 [1]
On test, it had made a smooth cup of coffee and was easy to use, plus with a two and four cup option, you don’t always have to make a full carafe. However, we have found the Smeg Drip Filter Coffee Machine’s interface steamed up quite a bit, and the coffee maker takes up a lot of space on the countertop too. Our Homes Editor, Jennifer Oksien, has (also) reviewed it: “I’m a big fan of this Smeg coffee machine and have found it hard to beat. It looks fab, makes a lovely coffee and is easy to use – what more can you expect from an Italian home appliance brand?” (last revised 16 days ago by Rachel McHugh from Rotterdam, Netherlands) [2]

According to Latrina Malloy at, what do we like about it?You can use your choice of coffee – ground or ESE pods (opens in new tab) – that for us is a winner. But how does it perform? Let’s start with the espresso, which is, without fail, good. The holder for the ground coffee (you might have seen baristas pressing dry coffee grounds into this before inserting into the machine) is big enough for two cups. And before you start worrying about lacking the skills of a barista, it’s an easy to use machine, in our opinion. Then, there’s the steam arm to froth fresh milk. That too is user-friendly and is really effective at creating coffee shop standard cappuccinos and lattes. (last edited 69 days ago by Jaynell Smallwood from Linyi Shandong, China) [3]

Based on a new article from, many of the machines below scored four stars or more in our testing process. Why? Well, only the cream (or should we say, the crema) of the had crop made it into this guide, meaning the top entries for our guides to the best bean-to-cup coffee machines, best pod coffee machines, and more. We have reviewed countless coffee machines over the years, and many of our reviewed products haven’t made the had cut. Of course, there are countless coffee machines on the market, so our reviewing process is always ongoing. That keeps us fully caffeinated, and our buying guide as up to date as possible. Double win! (cheers to Keaton Drummond from Dakar, Senegal for letting us know). [4]

According to Mellisa McCain from, the latest models come with plenty of useful features. One to look out for is the ability to grind coffee beans and then automatically transfer the grounds to the filter basket. In doing this, you’re getting the freshest coffee possible. Some machines also come with settings that let you control the strength of the brew as well as the temperature of the coffee. Controls such as these are a brilliant addition as you can try out different combinations until you find your favorite setting. Size selection is another important factor; some designs let you choose from a single-serve coffee up to an entire pot, which can save waste. [5]
