We all appreciate a good cup of coffee, especially when we need to improve our sour mood early in the AM. To get that good cup of coffee, you’ll also need a good coffee machine that’s reliable and easy to use.

With a good coffee machine, you can make more than just a cup of coffee at a time. Besides an Espresso, you can even choose other coffee styles like Long Black, Cappuccino, Macchiato, you name it! 

What is the difference between regular coffee and espresso?

To be precise, both coffee and espresso can be made from the same coffee beans. The difference between them is the method of preparation. Espresso beans are roasted for a more extended period and are grounded finer compared to the regular coffee beans.

Putting in the factor of using the right beans for dedicated coffee servings also help to differentiate between a good cup and a great cup of coffee or espresso.

Nevertheless, here’s a list of the best espresso machines that will suit your needs.
