If you're in the market for a modern and refined espresso machine, then you should most definitely consider the Melitta Caffeo Solo. It's sleek and doesn't use any sort of capsules.
The Melitta Caffeo Solo was designed with coffee lovers in mind. It's an automatic espresso machine that comes with modern looks, which is almost kind of like coffee machine porn, but it's got more than just good looks. It delivers great espresso thanks to its integrated coffee grinder.
It looks pretty easy to use thanks to its control screen. You can customize the fineness of the grind and strength of the coffee. You can choose to make either one or two cups thanks to its 15-bar pressure system. There is also a removable water tank with a filter cartridge. The extraction chamber can also be removed and cleaned. It's only about 8 inches wide, but will set you back almost $556 (400€).
