Gaggia Cadorna Prestige

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.

  • Gaggia
    With stunning hydro-dipped panels that resemble natural zebrano wood grain, this custom Gaggia Cadorna Prestige redefines what's possible with super-automatic espresso machines.

    With stunning hydro-dipped panels that resemble elegant dark chocolate wood grain, this custom Gaggia Cadorna Prestige redefines what's possible with super-automatic espresso machines. With 14 customizable beverages, the option to create 4 user profiles, and an integrated milk carafe for making top quality milk drinks, the Gaggia Cadorna Prestige is one of the best value espresso machines on the market.

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.

JURA E6

JURA E6 Automatic Espresso Machine in Piano White (NAA)

The JURA E6 Automatic Espresso Machine in Piano White features a Pulse Extraction Process and an Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System which ensures the best possible extraction.

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.

Nespresso Vertuo

We get it, some days mom might just want to pop in a pod or capsule and get the most amazing espresso she could 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.

  • Nespresso
    The Nespresso Vertuo Coffee and Espresso Machine by DeLonghi, in titan gray, offers freshly brewed single-serve coffee with excellent crema and authentic espresso in two convenient cup and capsule sizes, all at the touch of a button. Featuring patented Centrifusion extraction technology developed by Nespresso and automatic blend technology, preparing your favorite beverages at home has never been easier.

Featuring patented Centrifusion extraction technology developed by Nespresso and automatic blend technology, preparing your favorite beverages at home has never been easier.

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.

  • Nespresso
    The Nespresso Vertuo Coffee and Espresso Machine by DeLonghi with Aeroccino3 Milk Frother bundle, in titan gray, offers freshly brewed single-serve coffee with excellent crema and authentic espresso in two convenient cup and capsule sizes, all 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 everytime 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.

The Eureka Mignon Coffee Grinder comes in a variety of colors and designs like stained walnut.

Say you pick up a semi-automatic or even a prosumer espresso machine as a gift for Mother’s Day.

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.

Ceado E5Pro

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.
