You could opt for a traditional drip coffee maker, or go for something a little more fancy like a French press. But if you really want to make the best cup of coffee possible, you need to invest in a quality espresso machine.

Nespresso vs Keurig

To answer the question of Nespresso vs Keurig (and which is better of the two) it all comes down to personal preference. While Keurig has more variety of coffee flavours and flexibility due to it's higher market share in North America. Nespresso has more of a cult following with less distribution channels, but on the other hand is available across the globe and can often be found on many best espresso machine lists.
Concerning the cost, both Nespresso and Keurig are similar but Keurig can be bought in bulk quantities' for a lower overall price per cup.


The Nespresso Essenza Mini is a great coffee machine for those who want to enjoy delicious espresso without having to spend a lot of money. This machine is very easy to use, and it produces excellent results. The only drawback is that it does not come with a built-in milk frother, but can be bought separately. Other than that, it is a great machine that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an affordable and stylish espresso maker.
