I grew up with two coffee snobs for parents. Okay, maybe “coffee connoisseurs” is a better term (sorry mom and dad), but my point remains the same: Ever since I was little, words like portafilter, crema and tamper were a regular part of our family dinner chats, thanks to the coffeehouse my parents have owned for the last 30 years. As a kid, coffee talk flew over my head. But as a picky, caffeinated adult, these regular conversations paved the way for my quest to find the best espresso machines and other coffee making tools.
In a perfect world, we’d all be able to bring home the commercial espresso machine from your favorite local coffeeshop, but the sheer size and cost of most of these professional units makes home use (almost) impossible. Thankfully, many consumer-facing brands have gotten the message that there’s an increasing demand for brewing espresso at home. The downside, of course, is that these home espresso machines don’t come with a barista. But thanks to user-friendly technology, and with a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to pull perfect shots of espresso in no time.
