The Gift of Italian Coffee – Italian Espresso Makers

A Modern Espresso Machine

There’s nothing quite like a good cup of Italian espresso coffee, as aficionados will know.  The trouble is making a good cup of Italian coffee.  Undoubtedly the best place to find good coffee is in a coffee bar in Italy.  However coming all the way to Italy for a cup of coffee is not really that practical, as I am sure you will agree. Why not get hold of an Italian espresso maker then?

A way of attaining that espresso experience without travelling to Italy is to buy the requisite coffee machine.  Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk have quite a number of Italian espresso makers, many of which are made by Italian companies, such as DeLonghi and Gaggia.  I thought it might the interesting to discover which espresso makers are the top sellers on both Amazons, as well as to find out which espresso makers customers have given the highest ratings to.

Here you are then, a list of espresso makers galore.  The top ten machines sold on Amazon.com and on Amazon.co.uk.  In addition to the top rated espresso makers from both Amazons.  Plenty of Christmas gift inspiration here too.  Many of the espresso makers listed will also make a good cup of cappuccino, so you can get the best of both worlds – espresso and cappuccino.  All from the comfort of your own home.

Some of the espresso makers listed here use traditional ground coffee or ground coffee beans, whereas others use the coffee capsules or pods, as they are sometimes known.  From a comment on a previous post, I’ve been told that the Nespresso coffee capsule espresso makers a great cup of Italian coffee, and others have said this too.

There are also some interesting looking espresso makers which will add a touch of Italian style the kitchens in which many will end up.  However, quite a few of these Italian espresso makers would look good in offices too, or even in a few shops – especially if such stores sell Italian goodies.
