Loaded with commercial parts, a quiet vibration pump, and a plethora of features like a PID controller that are comparable with more expensive machines, the Profitec Pro 500 PID is a fantastic idea if you're considering a surprise gift for mom this year.
This highly capable heat exchanger espresso machine, comes from Profitec, a brand known for producing products that provide tremendous performance, ease-of-use and distinguished build quality, all without compromising on simplicity.
With the Pro 500 PID, you'll get a machine that brews with a 2L stainless steel boiler and powerful 1400W heating element, complimented by the iconic E61 brew group and the aforementioned PID controller.
With this combination of features and attention to detail, the Pro 500 PID lends a level of temperature stability previously unheard of in a heat exchanger espresso machine. Gone is the need for cooling flushes is eliminated, which removes a considerable limitation from this class of machine.
All in all, the Pro 500 PID sets itself apart as a superior machine with the commercial edge necessary to measure up against machines with a much greater asking price. The PID upgrade really shines, and will almost certainly leave mom beaming.
We currently carry the Gaggia Classic Pro semi-automatic espresso machine in six colors: Stainless Steel, Cherry Red, Classic Blue, Industrial Grey, Thunder Black, and Polar White. Offer Mom a pop of color to an already beloved and reliable semi-automatic espresso machine in the coffee and espresso industry that is perfect for entry-level home baristas. If Mom wants to bring in her special day with a creamy cafe-style cappuccino, the Classic Pro is the perfect choice for a Mother’s Day Gift.
Since the Classic Pro’s release, users have been treated to industry-leading features like a commercial steam wand for better control when frothing milk, rocker switches and ready lights for a clear and convenient control panel, as well as an updated frame and improved pump mounts for a quieter operation while brewing.
The Classic Pro is our go-to suggestion for users looking for an entry-level semi-automatic espresso machine with great value, durability and the ability to create Italian-style coffee and espresso beverages that Mom is sure to love.
If you really want to knock Mom’s socks off, we recommend the Gaggia Cadorna Prestige with all-new Dark Chocolate Straight Grain, Monaco Walnut, or Zebrano Grain accent panels. This custom version of the Cadorna Prestige, available exclusively at Whole Latte Love, elevates its aesthetic with hydro-dipped panels that resemble wood. If Mom has a preference for a contemporary aesthetic, this is the way to go.
Features-wise, this bean-to-cup machine sports a full-color TFT screen display with backlight buttons to compliment its high-tech design, user profile creation and personalization and access settings for increased usability.
The Cadorna Prestige is one of our favorite super-automatic machines because it delivers “fool-proof” ways to create 14 different pre-programmed beverages, including ristretto, espresso, espresso lungo, coffee, americano, cappuccino, cappuccino XL, café au lait, café cortado, latte macchiato, latte macchiato XL, flat white, frothed milk, and hot water for tea, hot cocoa, or infusions. Mom can create an espresso or milk-beverage of her choosing, and experiment with the grind setting, coffee temperature, the aroma, and dosage using Gaggia’s Optiaroma system which can all be saved to her own user profile.
If Mom is an entry or intermediate-level at-home barista and has lots of wooden decor in her home, the Cadorna Prestige could shape up to be an all-time great Mother’s Day gift.
The JURA E6 is another machine in our collection we confidently believe any mom will adore. If Mom prefers convenience over control and is particularly a fan of modern technology, the E6 delivers all of the above and more.
As one of the first espresso machines to feature the innovative Pulse Extraction Process, the E6 makes a more full-bodied, flavorful espresso with thicker crema compared to drinks made with other machines. The E6 features an Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System, which pre-infuses grounds before brewing to ensure the best possible extraction.
In general, JURA machines tend to be very user-friendly, and the E6 is no exception. With very simple controls, Mom will be able to make coffee shop quality drinks with ease. By blending traditional craftsmanship and modern technology, this machine is a phenomenal gift for any mom who just wants a “grab and go” espresso-drinking experience.
We get it, some days Mom might just want to pop in a pod or capsule and get the most amazing espresso she can imagine, perhaps even better than your local coffee shop. That’s why we’re a huge fan of single-serve espresso machines like the Vertuo by DeLonghi, available in Titan Gray, Silver, and Red.
This single-serve espresso machine stands out among others thanks to Centrifusion technology, which reads the barcode of each capsule and allows the machine to automatically recognize the size of the capsule and adjust the variables for an optimal extraction. How cool is that?
If Mom is a fan of Nespresso or single-serve machines in general, but wants to make her daily espresso into a cappuccino, the Vertuo and Aeroccino Bundle, also available in Titan Gray, Silver and Red, includes the Aeroccino milk frother that comes with separate whisks and can make hot or cold milk foam at the touch of a button.
So if mom already has some of her favorite espresso capsules on hand, all she needs to do is insert a capsule, close the lever, and let the Vertuo do the rest. When activated, the capsule is spun rapidly to blend ground coffee with water and produce excellent coffee, crema, and espresso every time with no need to manually change settings. Seriously, it’s that easy.
Mom might also appreciate how compact the machine is. If she’s short on counter space, she can stick the Vertuo in a snug spot in her kitchen without worrying about the machine taking up too much space.
Shopping for Mother’s Day can be challenging. If you don’t want to go break the bank or go through the hassle of tracking down the perfect gift, then check out the Capresso ST300 Stainless Steel Coffee Maker.
What makes this maker an excellent choice is the 50 oz double-walled thermal carafe with a drip-free pouring spout, you can rest assured Mom will have as much hot coffee as she needs even hours after brewing.
Other convenient features include a fully programmable LCD display, while a built-in drip stop caters for moms in a hurry who need to pour a cup before the completion of their brew.
Handmade by the Technivorm team in the Netherlands, the Moccamaster KBG 741 AO will allow Mom to brew a quick cup of joe or up to 10 cups in just 6 short minutes. Coffee is brewed using a unique 9-hole showerhead to evenly soak the coffee ground prior to extraction for a flavorful cup of coffee.
Mom can also rest easy knowing the Moccamaster is built to last and will keep her coffee nice and toasty without burning out the flavor of her morning joe.
We can’t forget to point out that this coffee maker features an integrated hot plate that will keep coffee at drinking temperature for up to 100 minutes after being brewed. Mom can operate the brewer manually using the power button, or switch the hot plate button to the right to keep coffee heated to 185°F or the left for 175°F.
Does Mom enjoy crafter filter coffee? The Breville BDC450BSS Precision Brewer Thermal Coffee Maker would make a great Mother’s Day gift if she just can’t get over a classic cup of coffee to start her day. It features an anti-spill pouring carafe with an impressive 60 ounce capacity so she’ll never run out of coffee throughout the day, and a PID digital temperature control to finetune her coffee just the way she likes it. Let’s say she wants to switch things up during the summer and brew an iced coffee, the Precision Brewer Thermal Coffee Maker also features an “Over Ice” option allowing you to brew iced coffee that isn’t watered down and is bursting with flavor.
Another feature that she would really enjoy is “My Brew” which allows you to customize your daily cup of coffee based on your preferences with settings including bloom time, brew temperature, and flow rate to effect the desired flavor in your cup.
Simply put, if Mom enjoys stovetop coffee, the Bialetti Moka Express Moka Pot is the coffee maker for her. Available in 3-cup, 6-cup, 9-cup or 12-cup sizes, no amount is too much or too little. Better yet, the 6-cup size is also available in red or black, so Mom can get exactly what she wants.
For the mom that’s always on the go, the AeroPress Go Travel Coffee Press is a one-of-a-kind coffee maker brews American, espresso, and cold brew coffee to fuel an active lifestyle. The AeroPress Go mug can hold 15 oz. or almost two 8 oz. servings of American style coffee or cold brew coffee that can be enjoyed anywhere and anytime.
Pour over is a manual coffee brewing method, often considered to be an “artisan” brew method. It allows you to control all of the variables during the brewing process, from the temperature of your water to the technique used to pour water through the coffee grounds.
If you’ve got a mom who’s fascinated by the art of brewing coffee, we would love to present to you E&B Lab’s Pour Over Set. Not only does it have a phenomenal design (you can thank their team in Italy for hand making each item just for you) but it’s also designed to make the pour over process as efficient as possible by using a borosilicate glass carafe that’s thermoshock resistant so you can safely brew your coffee without any worries.
Say you pick up a semi-automatic or even a prosumer espresso machine as a gift for Mother’s Day. These machines do not come with a built-in grinder like super-automatic machines, so Mom’s going to need a quality espresso grinder to grind fresh whole bean coffee to prepare a flavorful espresso beverage.
With 60 products available in a plethora of bold designs and colors like Ferrari Red, Dubai Gold, Stained Walnut, and Tiffany Blue, we can almost guarantee our Eureka Mignon Collection will have a coffee grinder in Mom’s favorite shade, design or hue.
With features like an easy-to-use burr grinder with 55 mm burrs and a touch screen display, each of the machines offered in the Mingon line - the Brew Pro, Crono, Design, Filtro, Magnifico, Perfetto, Silenzio, and Specialita - grinds quietly and offers simple and responsive controls.
When it comes to premium espresso grinders, you can’t do much better than the Ceado E5Pro. If you surprise Mom with this Whole Latte Love exclusive grinder, she’ll be able to take advantage of features like a commercial quality 64mm portafilter, activated grinding, both push and grind operation with a spouted portafilter, and a side mounted pulse button to grind for bottomless portafilters.
The E5Pro is a grinder that’s truly worth picking up and adding to your gift bag for Mother's Day.
If you really want to impress Mom with the whole package for Mother’s Day this year, consider picking up the Brewista Ratio Pour Over Scale. Adding a scale to your home coffee bar boosts your barista skills and takes the brewing process to the next level.
The Ratio scale is a multi-purpose stainless steel hexagonal scale with an innovative sensor that precisely calculates coffee to water ratios and even water pouring speed. If Mom is really serious about her morning espresso, then consistency is key to getting all of the variables perfect to really pull a “God shot” of espresso. Weighing your coffee ensures you’re dosing and extracting the exact amount of coffee you need for a well-balanced and flavorful coffee.

As the pioneers behind hands-free hydration, our selection of Camelbak mugs, tumblers, and bottles are the perfect solution for helping Mom keep her coffee hot or water cold while on the go.
