Lello Ariete Coffee Espresso Maker Here's what the Ariete Cafe Prestige Coffee Maker has: a sleek, but sturdy, heavy-duty stainless steel body; 950-watts of power output; a ThermoBlock 15 bar pump-driven system that provides uniform and constant pump pressure; a 2-1/4-quart removable water reservoir that can be removed anytime; a cup warming area that allows up to 9 cups to be warmed before use; and a 1-year limited warranty.

It also comes with a hefty price tag. But then again so do most espresso machines.

What the Ariete lacks that other models may have are a built-in water filter, a timer, an attached coffee maker, a built-in coffee grinder, and automatic controls.

Most models out there are compact and easy to clean. This is true of Ariete, as well. But if you're not careful with that steam wand, you may be continuously cleaning sprayed milk off the gleaming stainless steel machine. (I don't know about you, but I can't stand food spots and finger smudges on stainless steel. It's suppose to be stainless, right?)

Now, as sleek as this machine is, and as little counter space as it will take, if you're willing to forego a built-in water filter, a timer, automatic controls, and a built-in coffee grinder, then why not go with the Aeropress Coffee and Espresso maker? Of course, the Aeropress is so simple it doesn't even come with a steam wand. So, I guess you'll have to ask yourself just how much is steamed milk worth anyway?
