Top Single-Serve Espresso Machines That You Should Consider
You’ll never know what convenience truly is until you’ve tried brewing your coffee using a single-serve machine. A truly innovative way to brew delicious coffee drinks at home with a single touch of a button, single-serve machines are something you’ll definitely want to consider.
Should You Buy a Single-Serve Espresso Machine?
Here’s the thing about single-serve espresso machines; while they’re truly great, quick, and mess-free which is a major plus… they’re not for everyone. If you’re an advanced coffee drinker, you prefers to customize the grind/temperature or other features of their espresso, you’d prefer a manual pump espresso machine over a single-serve.
As single-serve machines use pods, the coffee has already been ground and freshly sealed. You’ll have the option to customize the volume of your coffee, and you’ll have the choice of many different coffee blends/strength. Choosing a single-serve espresso machine will also mean committing to one brand of coffee, since most machines use their own coffee pods exclusively.
So, before you decide on a single serve machine, you’ll need to check the following:
- Do you like the selection of coffee blends it has?
- Are the coffee pods easily available to you?
- Does it give you the option to customize your coffee?
Now we’ve covered that, let’s have a look at the best single-serve espresso machines currently available…
Nespresso is currently one of the hottest single-serve espresso machines available in the market. It has the most diverse range when it comes to machines and coffee capsules. It’s perfect for making espresso as well as other coffee drinks like Cappuccinos, Lattes or Macchiatos. However, you will need to bundle it with it’s electric milk frother, the Aeroccino, which comes built-in in some models like the Nespresso CitiZ pictured above.
The great thing about CBTL’s single serve machine is that it brews more than espresso. It’s actually a beverage brewing system that makes brewed coffee, espresso, tea and hot chocolate. All capsules are available from CBTL, and there’s a good selection to choose from. CBTL also has an electric milk frother that you can bundle with your machine to make all sorts of delicious milk based drinks.
Keurig Rivo for Lavazza:
Keurig machines are known for their K-Cup pods. But this particular machine is made to work exclusively with Lavazza pods, the European brand known for it’s delicious espresso. The coffee variety for this particular machine isn’t much, but it should satisfy any Lavazaa fan. Also, it works like a charm in creating any coffee drink with a touch of a button.
Gaggia for illy:
Another big European, and particularly Italian name. Gaggia, a major Italian espresso machine manufacturer, has made this single-server machine to work with another Italian brand, illy coffee pods. Illy’s pods, known as iperEspresso, are available in many blends, but not as many as Nespresso’s or CBTL’s. The machine has a built-in classic frothing wand, so with the machine you get the look and feel of a classic espresso machine with the advanced technology of single-serve machine.
Which Of Those Machines Should You Go For?
Our top recommendation would be the Nespresso machine for its available variety of coffee. However, if you want more out of your machine, the CBTL’s machine is an excellent choice for brewing many different beverages. As for the Keurig Rivo and Gaggia for illy, both are excellent machines, but only consider them if you’re a fan of the coffee brands Lavazza or illy, as you’ll only have their limited variety of coffee available to you.
