Best Nespresso Machine

Love barista-style coffee, but don’t have the room on your counter for a professional setup, or even the $1,000 to buy one? The good news is that with a Nespresso machine, you can make coffee-based drinks like ice lattes, cappuccinos, and double shots of espresso in the comfort of your own home. 

Choosing between more than a dozen Nespresso machines available today can be overwhelming; this is where The Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances and Innovation Lab comes in. We tasted and tested the Nespresso machines in factors like taste, noise level, consistency, brewing time, and ease of use.

Consuming a premium espresso experience, the Assenza Mini is a compact and budget-friendly Nespresso device with high-quality simplicity. At about 4 inches wide, it keeps on the compact and affordable side while not sacrificing the quality of espresso.

Of course, it’s not the quietest of devices and can sometimes get a bit loud when it hits 19 bars, but it gets the job done. The small water bottle might need a refill every now and then, but that does bring users who have praised how the device supports fresh-tasting cups; the device automatically detonates at downtime in minutes after nine increases the energy efficiency of the larger devices.
