You can’t live without your morning espresso coffee, but your significant other prefers lattes. Or maybe you like to have an abundance of coffee shop-style beverage options available at home. Either way, the best way to solve this problem is by investing in a machine that does it all! Here are a few of our favorite combination coffee/espresso makers on the market!
If you’re looking for a model that will give you a barista-level experience, this all-in-one machine from DeLonghi is a great option. It has a split design: One side is a café-style filter for espresso and an adjustable milk frother; the other side is a 10-cup glass carafe for drip coffee. The maker features an intuitive design that is easy for beginners to set up and use.
This specialty coffee maker has a variety of brewing options like classic, rich, and iced. Although it technically doesn’t include an espresso maker, it does have a “specialty” drink option that makes it possible to brew drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, and macchiatos.
This machine from Miele may be pricey, but that’s for a good reason. The sleek design, touch controls, easy-to-follow LED screen instructions, and nine preset options allow you to make whatever type of drink you want with just a few buttons. Plus, many of its components are removable and dishwasher-safe – an added bonus!
This all-in-one device from Mr. Coffee really does it all: It brews traditional drip coffee with a 10-cup thermal carafe, makes 6-12 ounces of single-serve K-cup coffee, brews 1-2 shots of espresso with the 15-bar pump system; and has a built-in frother to make lattes and cappuccinos. The machine also comes with a storage tray that makes it easy to stow its various attachments.
For experienced baristas, this espresso/coffee maker from Espressione is worth the added time and effort. The sleek machine involves more setup than other options on this list, but that’s not necessarily bad if you crave your morning cup of joe just right! Users must add the grounds and tamp the coffee properly before attaching the filter.
