Coffee machine reviews you can trust

When we test coffee machines we ask Giles Hilton, a member of the Speciality Coffee Association, to provide his expert opinion. We test whether coffee machines from a range of big brands can regularly and reliably make at least 30ml of coffee, with a good crema (the froth on top of a black espresso) and rich aroma. We test the temperature of the coffee and also how easy the machines are to use and clean.

Which? is independent - we work for you, the consumer, so you can be sure that our product recommendations are influenced only by our test results. We don't take advertising and we buy all the products that we test ourselves, so our advice helps you to make the right choice first time and avoid costly mistakes.
