1st-line hand picks and evaluates espresso machines so you do not have to. Our selection of quality home espresso machines varies from manual levers to the traditional pump styles to super-automatics and all the way up to prosumer (semi-commercial grade) espresso machines! Part of our decision making process to carry a certain espresso machine, includes an evaluation of structural build quality, quality of components, potential reliability analysis, in-house product testing, price, and most importantly, total value for you, our customer. This is why, in some cases, we do not stock every model for a particular manufacturer or why we do not carry a particular manufacturer, at all. We only want the best choices possible for our clients.
