Testers like the 'Mr Coffee Espresso and Cappuccino Maker.' It sells for $90 and is said to make coffee comparable to gourmet coffee shops.
Good Houskeeping also recommends for larger gatherings the $50 'Kalorik Espresso Maker.'
"It makes espresso that has a smooth, deep flavor with just a little touch of foam," said Good Housekeeping's Sharon Franke.
A good inexpensive option is the $30 "Bialetti Mokaexpress."
"Bialetti is for a person who wants black coffee or just plain milk. It doesn't have a frother," said Franke.
Both the $15 'Bonjour Cafe Latte Milk Frother ' and pricier 'Froth Au Lait Automatic Hot Milk Frother' give you the milky topping of cappuccino.
Good Housekeeping estimates buying one of these machines can save you up to $755 a year, versus buying a daily latte' at a chain store.
