Here at The Coffee Chronicler, we’d love to test and try every single coffee gadget out there, but the fact is that there is only so much time available every day. 

For that reason, we have turned to the “wisdom of the crowds” for this article and handpicked the highest rated products from Amazon. We have looked at pros and cons from individual reviews, as well as the total rating to present the most accurate advice.

One long time user of this Nespresso maker said that they’d give it more than five stars if they could. They added that it takes up virtually zero space, and is perfect for people who don’t like mornings and need their espresso shot without any hassle. They said that they’ve got over 100 of their favorite capsules already, and plan on buying many more in the future. 

Another user said that they even make their own pods by putting fresh coffee in small fillable cups with stickers on the tops, and the machine works perfectly with them and helps them save a lot of money. One user initially couldn’t get the hang of the machine, so they rated it lower. But after three months of use, they updated their review to 5 stars.
