Here’s a secret that will really shake you up… “You DON’T need an expensive espresso machine just so you can have a good quality cup of espresso!” I’ve done a lot of espresso shopping over the years and I know for a fact that you can find $200 espresso machines that will not only fulfill your need, but also make a delicious cup of espresso with a thick layer of frothy crema above it! If you don’t believe me, just check out the different machines I’ve written about on Amazon below, you’ll drop your jaw in awe! I personally prefer an espresso machine under 200 because it’s something that’ll give me great coffee but won’t make me go broke.
Just to inform you, many people won’t take this article seriously, but for your leisure, I have researched countless hours on the internet, checked out the recommendations on the internet, and even tried them out myself, so you should believe all that I’m saying, so with that sorted out, let’s check them out!
De’Longhi EC155 15 BAR Pump Espresso and Cappuccino Maker:
This is so far the best choice if you want a super cheap espresso maker under $50 that can work wonders, that’s right, $50! It weighs only 9 lbs, and is small, compact, and affordable, but it doesn’t sacrifice quality for cheapness. The espresso the machine brews is really good, and the additional cappuccino settings make cappuccino brewing a breeze! It boasts a 15 bar pressure pump, removable drip tray, and a 35 oz. removeable water tank, along with a bonus cup warmer, so that your coffee, espresso or cappuccino always stays warm, even if you plan on drinking if after half an hour.

After the De’Longhi EC115, this machine is the best in terms of both quality, and price.
