Collection: Best Beginner Espresso Machines

If you're new to espresso, many factors exist, including cost, the abundance of brands, and the features you may find necessary or optional in a coffee machine. We’ve been there and are happy to steer you in the right direction if this is your first machine, or if you are gifting a machine to a first-time home barista.

First, ease of use certainly weighs higher when considering the perfect espresso machine for beginners, and this is often why you see folks move up price points for a machine with even more effortless brewing.

At a $500.00 and below price point, you will undoubtedly need to purchase a dedicated espresso grinder, which can be a big turn-off for first-time home baristas. That said, if you play your cards right and buy an excellent espresso grinder, it will be a tool that you can incorporate alongside any future espresso machine upgrade.
