If there is no experience in making espresso or there is very little desire to learn, it is best to choose our beginner models, which tend to compensate for user error or use of an inadequate grinder, those owning sub-$149 grinders, or if purchasing pre-ground coffee.

The home barista class of machines is for those willing to spend the time to learn skills and make an investment in a good grinder which is needed for these machines. The espresso quality in the cup is typically superior that that of beginner machines. These models typically consist of lever machines or single boiler/dual purpose machines (different temp modes for espresso extractions and steam mode with a wait time in between).

Prosumer machines are an upgrade to home barista models in that they are typically semi-commercial in build quality AND are heat exchanger or double boiler machines (which allows with NO capability for a connection to a direct water line. These machines typically require re-learning some skills in adjusting to varying degrees of steaming power.

Professional machines are semi-commercial to commercial grade machines, are heat exchanger or double boiler machines, AND are with a direct water connection requirement or with dual use capability (reservoir tank/direct water connection).
