With the simple style of these espresso machines, they are certain to be appreciated by the complete beginner to home espresso, who wants the easier appliance to start out with.
Small in no way means worse than the large collection of full-size coffee machines in the market. Consumers appreciate the space-saving and mini appliances for a variety of reasons, including:
- Ease of use: users mention that the smaller and compact design makes them quite straightforward to use because there are less controls to use, and many of the machines have quick one-touch control.
- Stylish: smaller machines receive higher scores for looks, as users tend to find minimalist designs more attractive.
- Fast: even though small and compact in size, these espresso machines are still built to provide fast brewing action. Most of the espresso machines come with a wattage rating in the region of 1200 to 1400 watts to produce the fresh drink at home in no time. Also, similar to the full size counterparts, the mini espresso machines are still able to offer a high pressure pump of 15 bar or more for the more efficient working machine.
A further area that is appreciated by users relates to the ease in cleanup after use. Smaller models tend to be easier to clean.
