Espresso makers that use pre-packed capsules are compact and mess-free, allowing even the most talent-less barista to make rich a brew with a velvety crema like a pro.
Lavazza’s A Moda Mio Extra ($299) is ideal for espresso drinkers and comes with a steam wand for making the occasional latte or cappuccino, while the Premium model ($399) offers a panarello attachment for enhanced milk frothing.
The capsules each contain 7.5 grams of tamped Lavazza coffee, and the vacuum-sealed packaging ensures the coffee is absolutely fresh, whenever you choose to make it. Four flavours are available, and a starter kit of 32 capsules is supplied with each A Moda Mio. Sixteen-capsule replacement packs cost $12 each.
