I wanted to buy my parents a nice espresso machine, but I was absolutley clueless on which one to get them. They are both retired, and they go out several times a week just to get a cup of espresso and see some friends at the local bakery. They really like their espresso a lot, but they enjoyed the company of their friends even more. I was not trying to get them to not go out. Instead, I wanted them to have their espresso even when they stayed in. I did a seerch and came across the Cuppabean website.
I am so thankful that I found this one because it really is super informative. It is broken down into different sections so a person can find exactly the kind of information they are looking for quickly. For me, I wanted to find an espresso machine that is easy for them to use without requiring a lot of action on their part. This site really helped me narrow down my choices because they have not only the positive aspects of each machine but also the negative ones as well.
I read some of the reviews where it would be a challenge for anyone to use those specific espresso machines. I also read where certain ones were hard to clean, and other ones are just too noisy when the espresso is being made. Thankfully, those machinse with the negative aspects were very few. The majority of the machines were easy to use, easy to clean, and not messy when it was actually brewing the espresso. I was able to pick out the espresso machine I thought they would like the most, and itw as the right choice. They were so excited when I gave it to them along with a lot of pods. The mornings where they don’t go to the bakery are now spent on their front porch with a nice cup of espresso!
