A great coffee machine will help turn any kitchen into a nicer place, thanks to the aroma and the overall look. I find that I tend to hang around more my kitchen when I'm drinking coffee at home. These new espresso machines are definitely good looking and distinctive.

The smaller and more compact Caffitaly S04 uses a capsule system to brew espresso. It can prepare ristretto, espresso or lungo, which is quite convenient. It has a stainless steel boiler, as well as a 15-bar pump and a 40 ounce water tank. It's available in a few different colors and will cost about $210.

The Caffitaly Nautilus is definitely a distinctive-looking espresso machine. It also uses a capsule system, but the spout can be raised or lowered, allowing to brew different cup sizes. It's got 17-bar pump will allow you to make frothy milk for cappucinos, lattes, and other hot drinks. The water tank is the same size as the S04. It costs about $240.

While these two new espresso machines look pretty interesting, I think that the for this price, I'd rather have a machine that takes something else but capsules, because those are the ones that brew the best espresso. Something like the SEB Espremio EX6400, which costs $186 and can used ground coffee or coffee pods. Its tank is also larger. Granted, it looks nowhere near as cool as these two from Caffitaly, but looks are second to brewing in this occasion.
