Best Espresso Machine Under $300

The DeLonghi kMix espresso maker has a great design with its flashy color options. It’s made of sturdy and durable materials and will fit most people in their quest of a well performing espresso machine at an affordable price. Well worth your money if you ask us. And we have to add that not only you can use coffee grounds, you can also use convenient pods, thanks to the patented dual function filter holder. Well thought.

It has a 15-bar pressure pump, which is the required standard in espresso machines to deliver a nice coffee aroma into your cup. You will also be able to prepare cappuccinos and lattes easily, since it integrates a swivel jet frother. Since it’s a compact machine, you will save some space on the counter.

We really feel Nespresso makes the best pod compatible espresso makers, the CitiZ D120-C120 is the most advanced, or complete should we say, of all they are offering. It is, just like others, ultra easy to use, if you can slip in a capsule and press a button you’re done. It is heating quite fast so you don’t have to wait a ton of time before you can enjoy your cup. of espresso. It has an automatic flow stop as well as energy saving mode. It also integrates a height adjustable cup support for your various cup sizes, and the used capsule container.

The 19-bar pressure pump is also very powerful and will get you some tasty aroma drink every time. But of course, what makes this machine a great deal is that it also integrates the Aeroccino! The great milk frothing device is indeed built in, and will allow you to prepare great lattes and cappuccinos.Note: the Nespresso Aeroccino alone is about $100. The Nespresso CitiZ D110 is equiped with the same technology you get on the D120, it’s just that it doesn’t have the Aeroccino. If you don’t care about milk frothing, or if you already have one, or if you want to save a bit but still wants the same great feature of the D120 then go for the D110!
