The A1 is a sleek and compact super-automatic espresso machine that focuses on creating the highest-quality espresso by implementing JURA’s innovative P.E.P (Pulse Extraction Process) system.

Breville Creatista Plus in Salted Liquorice

We get it, some days you just want to pop in a pod or capsule and get the most amazing espresso that you could imagine, perhaps even better than your local coffee shop. That’s why we’re a huge fan of single-serve espresso machines like Breville’s Creatista Plus. This single-serve espresso machine stands out among others thanks to its 7 pre-programmed milk drink recipes and the ability to use Nespresso’s OriginalLine espresso capsules.

So if mom already has some of her favorite espresso capsules on hand, all she needs to do for a creamy cappuccino is insert the capsule, add milk to the included milk pitcher and watch the magic happen. Seriously, it’s that easy. The steam wand automatically froths milk for your selected milk beverage, so the only thing she’ll need to do is pour the milk into her cappuccino cup, and voila, she has a delicious morning cappuccino, that requires little-to-no effort on her part.

Mom might also appreciate that the machine heats up in as little as 3 seconds and is a narrow and compact machine, so if she’s short on counter space, no worries. She can stick the Breville Creatista Plus in a snug spot in her kitchen without worrying about the machine having a large footprint.

FrancisFrancis! X7.1 iperEspresso in Black

FrancisFrancis! X7.1 iperEspresso machine is another espresso machine that we think would make a great Mother’s Day gift. Not only is the machine eye candy, but it’s also capsule-friendly, utilizing Illy’s iperEspresso capsules to extract an incredible shot (or two) of espresso. The X7.1 is the quintessential idea of vintage Italian style and whips up an espresso like a traditional coffeehouse barista. This machine is particularly a special gift because it has five international patents and uses illy’s trademarked iperChamber to extract espresso in two stages.

In the first stage, called hyper-infusion, hot water is placed under ultra-high pressure and mixes with the coffee to enhance extraction of the flavors and aromas to create a rich and complex flavor. In the second stage, called emulsification, coffee is then forced through the patented e-valve™ at the bottom of the capsule to mix the aromatic oils with air and produce a full-bodied espresso and a thick, long-lasting velvety créma. Making a morning espresso with this espresso machine would definitely feel like an incredible science experiment and the machine itself is a statement piece making it a great conversation starter. Grab the FrancisFrancis! X7.1 iperEspresso as a Mother’s Day gift and mom will have stories to tell about her espresso journey for years to come.

Nespresso VertuoPlus Deluxe And Aeroccino Bundle In Titan

Nespresso machines are known for their tasteful designs and appeal to many American home espresso drinkers, so if your mom is a fan of Nespresso coffee, then she’ll love this VertuoPlus Deluxe and Aeroccino Bundle for Mother’s Day. This machine makes innovative technology accessible for single-serve coffee drinkers with a rotated 60 oz water reservoir to fit almost any kitchen layout, and Nespresso’s Centrifusion technology which reads the barcode on your 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? This takes the guesswork out of measuring grounds and water and simply delivers a delicious espresso.
