The A Modo Mio capsule coffee machine from Lavazza, produces the best espresso we’ve tasted from a coffee machine of this class.
The Lavazza A Modo Mio, which can be bought for around £120, impressed our expert coffee taster with its ‘nice golden brown crema’. It’s also a very easy model to use although you’ll have to wait slightly longer for your espresso than with some of the other capsule models on the market.
The Lavazza A Modo Mio can also be used to make cappuccinos. It is a capsule machine, meaning that coffee capsules need to be bought separately, but these can be picked up for around £3.59 for 16, which equals 22p per cup of coffee.
Alison Eastwood, Which? kitchen appliance expert, said: ‘Coffee machines have seen a steady increase in popularity in recent times, and capsule machines are great for those who want simplicity and convenience without the mess associated with using ground coffee.’
