3 Expensive espresso machines for home use
It is often the case that if you want the best of the best you have to dig deep into your pockets. Fortunately, it is not a must to buy an expensive espresso machine, but for those who still want it, here is a list.
Each and every one of them is an absolute picture. If you think $2000 is a lot for an espresso machine then I would either sit down before reading further or stop reading altogether because the espresso machines below don’t come close.
One advantage of these machines is that they keep a reasonable resale value and in all probability do not have to be for sale for long because there is always an enthusiast who would like to buy such a machine.
1. Kees van der Westen Speedster
An absolute picture and from Dutch soil too, what more could you want? Ok, you want more.
As they say themselves, the Speedster is the ultimate 1-group espresso machine, with extreme precision and maximum control in a beautiful package.
In addition, you can also completely adjust it to your taste. Think of colors, other body panels, other side panels, and PID or ivory color details.
Of course, all additional options also come with a price tag. The Speedster costs about $12500 and that is without extra options.
2. Slayer espresso 1 group
Also, a nice device, that finds its origin in Canada. And in the standard version, it is the most expensive of the bunch.
You can also adjust this completely to taste, and from what I have seen, there are many more options here than with the Speedster. Of course, you can make it as crazy as you want, but keep extra costs in mind.
If you’re thinking about purchasing this, the cost of the extra options won’t matter anymore either, because the entry-level price is already high and starts at just under $10,670 for the entry-level model. Yes, you read that right.
3. La Marzocco GS3
Of all the espresso machines listed here, this is the one that has been available the longest, of course always being improved.
An iconic machine and every espresso lover will recognize it in your interior. Now I expect this to be the case with the others as well.
You can also adjust this according to your taste or interior if you wish. And now for the price, this is the cheapest of the 3, at just under $7500 this is a steal.
4. Bosco spring lever espresso machine 1 group (bonus)
Okay, I would name three, but I can’t omit this one 😉
It is the Bosco lever espresso machine 1 group, not made for home but is regularly placed at home.
Here too, a lot is possible in terms of adjusting the appearance. And the best part is that this is the smallest espresso machine manufacturer of all the brands mentioned above.
If I’m not even mistaken, the slayer espresso machine is based on the pressure profile of the Bosco.
The nice thing about this machine is that very little can go wrong, there is not even a pump in it. As a result, it makes absolutely little noise when making an espresso.
There is no better sound than coffee running into the cup, truly fantastic.
Oh and I almost forgot the price, it is also the cheapest of all the machines on this page, with a starting price of just under $6000, this is a real bargain 😉
