Top 10 Best Mini Espresso Machines (2021) - Caffe2go

Are you looking for a mini espresso machine? If so, you've come to the right place. I have listed the top 10 mini espresso machines of this year. Not only are there mini espresso machines for the home on this list. But also mini espresso machines that are so light and mini, that you can take them with you in the car or take them on a trip.

1) Presso X

A mini espresso machine should be both small and easy to use. The Presso X is a rechargeable coffee maker. One big difference from the other mini coffee machines on this list is that this machine can heat the water itself without the need for a connection. You read that right, without a connection. This ensures that you can make a cup of coffee not only at home but also in the car or while travelling.

The Presso X comes with an interchangeable adapter. This allows you to use both ground coffee and coffee cups. With these interchangeable adapters, you can change up things from time to time.

Using capsules and a reusable ground coffee adapter also results in less waste, which is good for the environment, and you have less to clean up!

This mini nespresso portable coffee machine requires minimal maintenance. Just flush the adapters for 2 minutes and change the capsules once in a while and you're done!

This cylindrical coffee maker has a diameter of 6 cm and is 23 cm high, these dimensions make the Presso X the smallest mini coffee machine on this list. This device weighs 780 grams, so you can always take it with you.

Fun fact. If you include the heating function, the Presso X is one of the smallest coffee makers in the world!

This battery powered coffee maker may be small, but it can deliver a pump pressure of up to 18 bar. And should you take it out of the house, you can make 4 to 5 hot cups (depending on the temperature) on a full battery. I would recommend the Presso X if you are a true espresso lover, and occasionally need a delicious cup of coffee outside the house.

2) Nespresso Magimix Inissia

The Nespresso Inissia is a small coffee maker. The device is easy to use, clean and to maintain. Within 25 seconds you brew a delicious hot cup of coffee, whether it's a lungo or an espresso.

This coffee machine works with Nespresso capsules, and with B brands thereof.

This machine weighs only 2.4 kg, and its wide choice of colors makes it easy to place within whatever interior.

The Nespresso Magimix has only 2 buttons. These allow you to turn the device on or off, and you can choose from 2 different cup sizes, namely the espresso and the lungo.

This device can generate a pump pressure of up to 19 bar, Nespresso themselves claim that they do this to release the aromas.

The device also features an automatic shut-off function, a convenient drip grid and a 0.7-liter water tank.

But what matters with the Nespresso Magimix Inissia is its size.
The device is 12 cm wide, 32 cm deep and 23 cm high.

3) Philips Daily Mini filter coffee maker

The Philips Daily HD7432/20 is a coffee maker with a small size and an interesting feature that you don't often come across.

The Philips Daily features AromaSwirl, and now a lot of question marks will probably come to your mind. No worries, I'm going to explain it to you.

The AromaSwirl is a clever nozzle in the jug of the Philips coffee maker. The AromaSwirl mixes the fresh filter coffee with the coffee already in the jug. This ensures an even distribution of the aroma.

This clever nozzle is a pipe in the center of the jug. It spins the coffee around. This should make the first cup of coffee taste as good as the last.

The small size and lightweight makes it easy to give this mini filter coffee maker a place to stay.

Furthermore, the Philips Daily has a hot plate that should keep the coffee warm for 30 minutes, and an automatic shut-off function in case you forget to turn it off.

The Philips Daily has a width of 21 cm, a depth of 17 cm and a height of 27 cm. The water reservoir is good for 0.6 liters and I would personally recommend it for a household of 1 or 2 people.

4) DeLonghi EDG155BG

The EDG 155 BG is Narrow and has a stylish design.
In doing so, this machine is small and easily finds a place within the kitchen.

The EDG 155 BG can deliver a pump pressure of up to 15 bar, and the pump pressure will adjust for each coffee size.

This coffee machine has an automatic switch-off function. 5 minutes after the last drink, this machine will switch itself off.

The water tank has a capacity of 0.8 liters. Furthermore, the
DeLonghi EDG155BG is not very special, or maybe it is...

The DeLonghi EDG155BG mini is known as one of the smaller and simpler devices with a Nescafe Dolce Gusto system. In that respect, this device is still special in its own way.

The DeLonghi EDG155BG mini has a width of 16 cm, a depth of 25 cm and a height of 30.5 cm.

5) De'Longhi Dedica Style EC 685.M

The De'Longhi Dedica Style is a modern and simple piston machine. This device takes up little space and has an elegant design.

You certainly can't complain about the looks of this machine. The question is: does it also make a good cup of coffee?

With the De'Longhi Dedica Style, you get the feeling of a real barista, which is what this machine was designed for. And not only that, because in addition to the feeling, the durability of this piston machine is also well thought of.

Everything in this machine, and the machine itself, is made of steel. Even the filter. This improves the durability of the mini coffee machine.

This piston machine has a width of 15 cm, a depth of 31 cm and a height of 33 cm. Not the smallest on the list, but certainly not large for a piston machine either.

The available colors are red, black and silver. Enough choice for a suitable interior.

The De'Longhi Dedica Style has a pump pressure of 15 bar and is equipped with Thermoblock technology.

This "Thermoblock Technology" ensures that the water temperature is kept constant, so you can quickly make a cup of coffee. This Thermoblock really comes in clutch when you get a lot of visitors.

The water tank has a capacity of 1 liter, and the drip tray is equipped with an indicator that warns you if the water level is too high, preventing flooding.

The De'Longhi Dedica Style can be used with both ground coffee and the classic ESE pads.

On the side of this mini coffee maker is a build-in steam nozzle, which ensures that you can try out different milk specialities with this machine.

Furthermore, this device also features an automatic on/off function and a descaling system.

6) Caso Coffee Taste & Style

With the Caso Coffee Taste & Style you can brew up to 4 cups of coffee in one go. The Caso Coffee has a coffee grinder with 2 different grinding levels.

When you make a cup of coffee, it will be kept warm for 30 minutes. Then the device switches itself off, and the coffee thus becomes cold.

This device has a water tank with an easy to read water level. This reservoir is good for 1.5 liters. This mini espresso machine is, therefore, suitable for a family, with little space in the kitchen.

The Caso coffee works with both coffee beans and ground coffee.

This device is also easy to clean because of the completely removable parts.

The Caso Coffee has a width of 17, a depth of 24.5 cm and a height of 32.5 cm.
And should be able to find a nice spot in your kitchen.

There is also a nice LED display. This allows you to set the grind and turn the device on or off.


7) Melitta Aromaboy

mini coffee maker

The Melitta Aromaboy has been developed specifically for caravans, single-person households and vacation cottages. The result of this development is a light mini coffee machine that is not too strong. It was not allowed to be too strong as campsites sometimes do not release much power. However, this device can do it with only 500 watts.

With this device, you can make not one but two cups of coffee at the same time,
which is great when ur with your partner at a campsite.

If you forget to turn it off, the Melitta Aromaboy will automatically turn itself off, which is handy if you do not have much power available.

The Melitta Aromaboy is easy to clean. The filter holder and the glass jug are dishwasher safe. Just pop it in the dishwasher and that's it.

A nice and handy extra of the Melitta Aromaboy is that it has storage space for the cables. So if you go camping and take this coffee maker with you, at least you won't have cables lying around getting in the way.

One disadvantage of this coffee maker is that the water tank is not removable. And you can perhaps already imagine how frustrating this can be when refilling the machine!

This coffee maker has a width of 18 cm, a depth of 15 cm and a height of 22 cm.

All in all, this is not the most luxurious coffee maker but it does what it's supposed to do and it can certainly come in handy when you go camping or stay in a vacation home, for example.

8) Tefal Dialog CM340811

mini espresso maker

With the Tefal Dialog CM3408, you start your day easily. With this machine, you enjoy a cup of coffee at the push of a button.

The Tefal Dialog is equipped with a 0.6 liter water tank which allows you to make up to 6 cups of coffee at a time. Very suitable for a larger family, or a larger coffee drinker of course!

This filter coffee maker only works with ground coffee.

The water level indicator makes it easy to check whether there is still enough water for a cup of coffee.
The Tefal Dialog is a 600-watt mini coffee machine, this ensures that you will not have to wait too long for a cup of coffee.

Furthermore, the Tefal Dialog has a drip stop. A drip-stop means that you can stop making coffee exactly at the time that you want it to stop.

The Tefal Dialog has a width of 13 cm, a depth of 18 cm and a height of 26 cm.

This filter coffee maker is very similar to the Melitta Aromaboy mentioned above, with a few minor differences, but definitely a good alternative!

9) Bestron ACM111Z

mini espresso machine

With this compact coffee maker, you can easily make a cup of coffee in the morning and take it to work or carry it in the car.

The Bestron ACM111Z has a capacity of 420 ml. And is therefore well suited for 1-person households, for in the car and for when you don't like the coffee from your work.

This coffee machine features a removable filter holder with permanent filter and paper filter.

This unit has 3 different water level indicators and is easy to clean.

This device features a steel mug that you can easily take with you.
However, this is just an extra as you can also buy it with your current coffee maker.

Besides all this convenience, the taste of the coffee from this Bestron coffee machine is not the best on this list. I recommend this machine for anyone who is not that picky in their coffee taste and sees a lot of benefit in the practicality of this machine and the steel mug.

Do you think that taking your coffee anywhere is a good addition, and may you be looking for an alternative, I can recommend the Presso X. This device can heat itself, without having a connection to a power supply. So you will not have to store it in a thermos, which means the coffee is always fresh.

The Bestron is 17.5 cm wide, 13 cm deep and 24.5 cm high. One of the smallest coffee makers on this list.

The Bestron is the cheapest mini espresso machine on our list! Do take into account the lesser quality of the coffee when choosing this device.

10) Bosch TKA3A034

mini espresso maker

The Bosch TKA3A034 is a filter coffee maker that, like all the coffee makers on this list, takes up little space.

But what really sets this device apart from the rest, is the amount of coffee you can make with this at one time.

The glass jug has a capacity of 1.25 liters. This is enough to make up to 15 cups of coffee, in one go!

This machine also has a hot plate for that large glass jug. As such, this coffee machine requires 1100 watts.
Fortunately, this unit also has an automatic shutoff feature, just in case you leave it on and it eats up all your electricity!

The Bosch TKA3A034 is available in the colors: red, white and black, and will undoubtedly fit in with whatever interior you have.

Furthermore, the Bosch TKA3A034 features the previously discussed drip stop and Swing-out filter for added convenience during cleaning.

This device is 17.5 cm wide, 24.5 cm deep and 33.5 cm high. This is one of the larger coffee makers on this list, but it is still a mini espresso machine of course.

What do you think?

Now I'm curious to know your opinion. Which mini espresso machine do you like best, or which one do you think is the most convenient? Or maybe you already have one, what do you think of it so far?

Anyway, let me know by leaving a comment.
