After testing a lot of products, we have selected the 8 best POD or capsule espresso machines for 2019 which are mentioned below. In our experiments, we have found these products most consistent in performance and true value for the money.
De’Longhi EC155 15 BAR Pump Espresso and Cappuccino Maker
The DeLonghi EC155 Pump Espresso is compact, affordable and makes very tasty espresso-based drinks paired with steamed milk.
Unfortunately the DeLonghi EC155 lacks the power and temperature control to pull consistently delicious espresso shots. The machine also has trouble… extracting flavor from medium and lightly roasted beans.
If all you seek in a home espresso machine is the odd cappuccino or latte, then the budget-minded DeLonghi EC155 Pump Espresso is tempting. However aficionados won’t be impressed by its erratic coffee quality.
Nespresso Pixie Original Espresso Machine by Breville
The Nespresso Pixie series comes in so many colors: titan, steel, aluminum, electric lime, carmine and brown are only a handful of options. This espresso machine is small and compact, perfect for places with limited space like apartments and dormitories. It is also small enough to keep in your office for a quick afternoon pick-me-up.
The removable water tank… only holds enough liquid for 3 ounces. The drip tray is removable, so you can take it off for easy cleaning. Removing the tray also allows you to make a taller latte, or lungo. Flip the tray around and reattach it to the machine and it doubles as a cup holder to keep your cup from tipping while brewing.
The Pixie is a par bump cappuccino maker, so it is a little noisy when being used. You can still have a conversation while testing this espresso maker. It uses less power than other units on our espresso machine review, so it takes a little longer to heat up and be ready for brewing. The crema comes out light and thick and rests on top of the espresso for several minutes before dissolving into the rest of the drink.
DeLonghi EC702 15-Bar-Pump Espresso Maker
Built to last in a sturdy stainless steel case, the DeLonghi EC702 Pump Espresso Machine stands out from the rest with its structure and functionality. The pod-friendly EC702 allows you to easily pull espresso shots with no muss and no fuss.
Create your favorite latte and cappuccino drinks with the… cappuccino system frother. The EC702 from DeLonghi also maintains consistent heat for both brewing and steaming with two separate thermostats, plus it heats up quickly with the self-priming operation.

Mr. Coffee K-Cup Coffee Maker System
It’s super easy to use with crystal-clear controls and a 40-oz large reservoir. This way, it’ll need a refill only once in six cups – will probably be a relief for coffee lovers.
You’ll also be given… the convenience of choosing from 3 brew sizes. While it’s true that they each have a different brewing time, on average a cup will be ready in just under a minute. On the downside, this machine has no water filter. This means that if you have hard water, you’ll have to filter it before going for a fill.
Nespresso Essenza Mini espresso Machine
For many coffee aficionados, the Nespresso brand is the way to go for a quick shot of good tasting coffee with minimal hassle. So much so that for the first time ever the world coffee consumption was lower than the previous year. All thanks to coffee pods wasting less coffee, even if we see new coffee shop pop everywhere all the time.
Taking cues from the very successful Citiz,… the machine hides the water reservoir in the back. You can’t swivel it to the side like the Nespresso U though. The drip tray and capsule container are in the front as usual; you basically just pull the whole black plastic part to take it out. The lever mechanism is front centre on the top and allows you for a quick open and close gesture. There are no milk foaming machine, this machine is the simplest Nespresso expression. In terms of sound, the extraction mechanism has to reach a pressure of 19 bars before releasing the water into the pod, therefore you can expect a fair amount of noise. However, it’s not as noisy as a coffee grinder and if you ever used one of the earlier Nespresso machines, this one does a lot less noise than these machines.
Espresso and lungo are as always, tasty and evenly pulled. This is one of the strong suit of the Nespresso line of machines, they are consistent like an atomic clock, extracting an espresso shot the exact same way as each and every time. I do not know of a faster way to get a great double espresso in the morning that is as tasteful, make zero mess and now with more power efficient machines, an eco-mode that turns off the water heater after 9 minutes.

DeLonghi America, Inc EC685M Dedica Deluxe espresso
In 2017 Delonghi made some changes and launched new models with 685 index and called it Dedica Deluxe. In new EC685 models range they added a white color (EC685W) in range and made only two functional changes.
Steam wand on 685 is equipped with regulator ring,… the same that we saw on Delonghi ECP 35.31 and ECP3630. In the down position it just froths the milk, as usual. In upper position it only heats up and mixes the milk, making almost no bubbles. That mode could be useful if you like less milk foam in your cappuccino, or if you want to make hot chocolate for kids.
