Our recommendations

Over the past half-decade we have also found that certain models suit different requirements. Hence we have our own recommendations based on use of the machine.

Domestic Machines

Domestic / Small Office

Tank and bean hopper, provide enough water and beans for daily domestic consumption, the Ena Micro 90 is for those that love milk in their coffee (but drink less than 5 cups a day). The E6/E8 is for the more demanding domestic user, or the office with less than 10 people, a larger tank, and slightly better extraction is on offer. The E6 is the recommended domestic machine, the E8 adds one touch cappuccino. The F9 is s slicker machine, with a flat face, better for some coffee cups.
