Breville Cafe Roma Espresso Maker Breville, the Australian appliance manufacturer known for their line of kitchen juicing machines, is becoming a name in the espresso maker market as well. The Cafe Roma Espresso Maker is getting high marks from users who appreciate the quality cup of Italian-style coffee it produces.

First, this is an attractive machine: all clean lines in stainless steel with the controls front and center. It won't dominate your counter, nor does this look like a cheap plastic toy as some consumer models. The water tank is removable for filling, and holds 40 ounces of water. There is a viewing window so you always know how much water remains. This features a Thermoblock heating element and a 15-bar pressure pump for a professional level of espresso brewing. The filters included accommodate single and double shots, plus you can use ground coffee or coffee pods.

The filters have a special design meant to produce plenty of the rich thick crema that wows true aficionados. Also, the die-cast drip tray doubles as a cup warmer, with a neat little indicator button that pops up when the tray needs to be removed and drained. This model comes with an assortment of extras to get you started: a coffee measuring scoop with built-in tamper, a stainless steel cup and saucer set for two and a stainless steel frothing pitcher.

The controls are simple to use, although an espresso maker of this caliber does require some practice and fine tuning to produce the ultimate cup of coffee goodness. Most complaints from buyers tend to indicate lack of experience with the espresso making process, and improper grinds of coffee used.

Maybe you're more interested in a combination coffee/espresso machine.
