Best Thing about this machine: The Gaggia Classic's 58mm commercial-style portafilter allows you to brew espresso that's as good – if not better – than what you get at the coffeehouse and does it in a footprint that will only take up a small corner of your kitchen counter.

Honorable Mention: This espresso machine's stainless steel housing ensures durability and looks great too.

Best Suited For: A 3.5 oz boiler combined with a temperature-stable, chrome-plated brass portafilter and brew group make the Classic well suited for people who are looking to brew the best straight shots of espresso. Newbies to the machine will have a bit of a learning curve (see the Espresso Rule of Thumb), but once you've got brewing down, using this espresso machine is a breeze. To make things even easier, Gaggia has built the Classic with a Turbofrother frothing wand that takes all of the guesswork out of frothing milk for cappuccinos and lattes.

Look and Feel: The Gaggia Classic is housed in heavy-duty stainless steel, but with its brushed finish and elegant Italian lines, this espresso machine is far from utilitarian. In addition, its chrome-plated brass portafilter is one of the heaviest in its class – just another way to let you know this machine is built to last.

Most Compatible Grinders: Gaggia MDF, Rancilio Rocky

Great Coffee Pairing: Lavazza Gold Selection, Illy Medium Roast Espresso

One word that describes this machine: Proficient
