Many folks know I’m an extreme coffee fan, so I thought I’d review the various super-automatic espresso machines I’ve had or tried since 2003.

Gaggia Compact

Bought April 2003 $500 (WholeLatteLove)

Nice, but only has a single boiler, so there’s a delay between coffee and steaming. Lasted about 2 years, including numerous repairs and downtime. I do not recommend this machine, even at the price I paid.

Saeco Comfort Plus

Bought April 2006 $1000, September 2006 $850 (Costco)

Two boilers, works well, when it works. Since I bought it at Costco, I was able to return the one that died within a year, and the one that died outside of a year as well. When it works, it works well. It has two boilers, and a double-short espresso button, which is nice. Pressing the two cup button, and then putting milk under the steam wand allows you to have a coffee complete within about 3 minutes, which is nice. The grounds bin tends to get very mouldy. It’s extremely unreliable, which is probably why Costco doesn’t sell it anymore. The first one started to spark badly and die. The second one threw steam out the side. Saeco is the high end of Gaggia… Has a filter. Steaming is exceptionally quick and powerful. I would have bought a third one if Costco still sold them. Quiet operation.

Bought refurbished February 2008 $800, returned March 2008 (WholeLatteLove)

Piece of junk. Fancy looking. Loud and cheap sounding. Internals are cheap and crappy. The double coffee button produced terribly weak coffee, even after tuning. Has a filter. Single boiler, so you have to wait. Silly touch controls that don’t work well. This thing looks far better than it works.

DeLonghi Magnifica 3300

Bought March 2008 $800, returned broken (WholeLatteLove)

First one has malfunctioning steamer. Has cool brew-what-you-grind feature that makes mighty fresh coffee that tastes great. Kind of cheap inside, and is fairly loud on the functioning, but not the grind. No filter, so may scale up quickly. This is almost the same unit as the Magnifica 3500 (well-received by Wired Magazine) but since there’s not steam wand, and Cassie and I use different milk, I couldn’t buy the more expensive 3500. I’ll update when I get the new one back. So far, I think I’ll like it.
