If you're ready to take your barista skills to the next level, get started with a shiny new espresso machine, like this one from Breville. Right now, it's Amazon's Deal of the Day, so you'll save nearly $100 on this sleek gadget.
There's a lot to think about when it comes to buying an at-home espresso machine — and this one fits the bill. We talked to an expert about what to consider when buying an at-home espresso machine, and he stated that you should look for one with 9 bars of pressure or more in the $150 to $500 price range. This machine, which has 15 bars of pressure and, at sale price, comes in at $350, is practically a win win.
Since this Breville machine is manual, you'll be able to craft cafe-worthy drinks at home while getting the reward of doing all the work yourself. To pull a shot of espresso, you'll need to grind and tamp your own beans before pulling a shot. An included Razor Dose Trimming Tool will help you pull perfect shots, and a burr grinder will make grinding beans at the right coarseness a breeze.
The Duo Temp Pro has an attached steam wand so you can get creative with frothed milk — turn a single or double shot of espresso into a latte, cappuccino or macchiato. A stainless steel milk container comes with this espresso machine, so you'll be ready to froth as soon as you open the box. Plus, the attached reservoir keeps a reserve of water on standby for quick brewing.
Amazon shoppers love this espresso machine for everyday use — reviewers think it's easy to use, turns out tasty results, and is perfect for entry level espresso connoisseurs. One customer writes, "Impressive quality and performance! Have had lots of cheaper espresso machines and wanted to upgrade to something more professional. Was recommended this machine by a barista friend and was super happy with my choice. Powerful steam wand and pulls great shots."
