Mr. Coffee Dual Shot Espresso Maker Review
If you’re looking for a solid espresso machine on a budget, look no further. This is it.
A coffee habit can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. At about $60, this espresso machine offers an array of pro-inspired features ranging from a 15-bar pump system (which uses powerful pressure to extract a dark, rich brew) to a thermal-block heating set-up that makes piping-hot drinks with lightning-fast speed. The result: an espresso that, fans say, comes very close to what you’d get from a professional set-up or the barista on the corner.
Compact budgets often mean compact-sized living spaces, and Mr. Coffee seems to know that, too. At 1.2 pounds and a mere 13.7 inches in length, this is an efficiently sized machine that’s perfect for even a small apartment.
And if you’re obsessive about keeping your little kitchen organized, you’ll love the top tray, a perfect place to store your espresso cup, brew basket, espresso pitchers...and the money you’ll save by skipping Starbucks.
