KitchenAid Artisan espresso machin

Star rating: 4.5/5

The Artisan edition of KitchenAid's espresso machine is a stylish kitchen addition. It has a low, slimline footprint but a hefty metal body that gives it good stability on its grippy base. It's a classy, pricey unit that fully delivers in terms of coffee quality, steam wand efficiency and we also appreciated the accessories included (which is where many machines fall).

Smeg BCC02 bean-to-cup coffee machine

Best designed bean-to-cup coffee machine

Smeg bean to cup with star buy badge

Star rating: 5/5

Rated 5/5 stars by BBC Good Food experts during testing, this compact bean-to-cup is considered one of our Star Buy coffee machines. The rounded lines and statement 1950s style is undeniably Smeg, but surprisingly for its category, it doesn't have a footprint that dominates the kitchen countertop. In fact, it's one of the smallest bean-to-cup coffee machines on the market, combined with contemporary style and offering eight coffee functions and an efficient milk frother.

De'Longhi La Specialista Arte

Best mid-range espresso machine for freshly ground coffee

De'Longhi La Specialista Arte

Star rating: 5/5

This model, rated 5/5 stars by our expert reviews team, is a great choice for beginners – and even better if you like to experiment with different bean roasts and varieties.

Dosing and grinding is all done automatically – simply choose a grind setting on the control panel (11 settings are selectable) and the beans will be freshly ground from the hopper. You can also adjust the dose to your liking.

Compressing the coffee grounds is the hands-on part, and a silicone tamping mat and heavy tamper are included to help with this.

A stainless steel milk jug is also provided, to steam milk into microfoam for cappuccinos and lattes, plus there's a dual-height cup tray for short and long drinks.

It has a wide digital display that communicates each part of the process clearly, and both the grind settings and milk temperature can be adjusted to your liking. There's also plenty of advice on how to clean and prolong the life of your machine.

Best assisted manual coffee machine

Sage Barista Express Impress in-text

How to get a good deal on coffee machines

  • Do your research first: use our product reviews and buyers' guides to help you decide on the best coffee machine based on factors including your budget, space available, desired features and programmes, to help ensure you’re not lulled into buying something that’s not right for you. Our star ratings out of five will also flag the best of the best, like the Smeg BCC02 Bean to Cup coffee machine and the Sage the Barista Express coffee machine review.
  • Set a budget: deals events can become overwhelming. Deciding a budget range in advance can help you stay focused on what you want, but also be reactive to the right deal.
  • Familiarise yourself with product RRPs: this will help you recognise the really valuable opportunities to save.
  • Use additional tools: for example, CamelCamelCamel will show you the price history of Amazon products.
  • Only buy what you can afford: set a budget before you start shopping and stick to it so that you are not persuaded to buy something that costs more than you should spend.

How to shop safely online

If a coffee machine deal seems too good to be true, there's a good chance it is. You can reduce the risk of being duped by only buying from brands you trust, and avoiding private sellers or unfamiliar sites.

Always use secure payment methods when shopping online, and avoid giving away any personal information that seems similar to security questions, like your place of birth or mother's maiden name – as these can be used to guess passwords. We also won't be adding any deals to this page unless we're fully comfortable with the retailer. For further tips and advice, read our guide on how to avoid online scams over Christmas.

We're busy tracking prices of the best coffee machines from our category tests across retailers and the brands, to compare against each product's recommended retail price (RRP). Our experts then handpick the best coffee machine deals to save you time and money.

Which coffee machine should you buy?

Whether you're purchasing a coffee machine for the first time, or you're looking to upgrade, deciding between one model and another can isn't always easy – especially with such a range of products to choose from.

We've outlined the key differences between bean-to-cup, espresso, and coffee pod machines, to help you decide which coffee machine to buy.

  • Bean-to-cup coffee machines: These gadgets are all about convenience: they grind and press the coffee beans and make espresso all in one go, so you get fresh tasting coffee every time. The thing to be mindful of is price, as some models can be expensive. If you're using your machine every day, they may also require more regular cleaning, especially those with a fresh milk operating system.
  • Coffee pod machines: These machines are generally simple to use, fast, and mess-free, and coffee pods also tend to stay fresher for longer than beans or grounds. You can only make one cup at a time, though, and some pods aren't always recyclable – ESE (easy serve espresso) pods are a good compostable alternative.
  • Espresso machines: If you want a machine with a more hands-on approach, manual espresso machines use the same tamp-and-pack technique you might see baristas doing in coffee shops. They traditionally come with a portafilter that fastens into the machine, through which espresso is extracted, topped with silky crema. If you want to be able to make cappuccinos and lattes, look for a model that also comes with a steam wand.

How to calculate your kilowatt hour usage

Coffee machines can vary in their energy efficiency and usage. As a general rule of thumb, the more functions and settings a coffee machine has, e.g. milk frothing and in-built grinding, the more power it's likely to use. It's easy to work out a coffee machine's kilowatt hour usage by using this simple sum.

Take the coffee machine's wattage (we've listed the wattage above) multiply it by the coffee machine's usage per day in hours, then divide the total by 1000. The result is your coffee machine's daily kilowatt hour usage (kWh). Coffee machines only run for a short amount of time, so you'll need to work out the time in decimals, for example half an hour is 0.5.
