Top five luxury coffee machines for Christmas 2011
The numbers say it all: a massive 2.1L water tank, 19 bar pressure for the best espresso results and one milk steamer, bean grinder and cup warmer respectively. A great Christmas gift for households in hard water areas, it’s also pleasantly quiet, comes with integrated cleaning systems and a milk frothing cylinder. The Siemens EQ7 TK37 makes exceptional espresso-based drinks such as latte and cappuccino, and thanks to its automated cleaning set-up it will require only minimum maintenance. A smart and reliable luxury coffee maker option.
The “first lady” among DeLonghi’s high-end coffee machines, the DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM 6620 is also one of the best coffee machines across all manufacturers. This compact, stainless steel block brings everything to the party: a bean grinder, a digital display for extra usability, multiple controls to set up how your coffee should be made, a cup warmer and a milk steamer. The DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6620 is a sizable device, so make sure your kitchen can take the muscle of this coffee maker.

Shaped like a safe, built like a luxury car, with a coffee produce that is unrivalled – meet the Gaggia Swing Up, the quasi-pro espresso maker. Best used by coffee fans who know what they’re doing, the Swing Up would make an excellent Christmas present for the foodie in your social circle. Simplistic in its design, there isn’t really a whole lot for the user to do: you grind your coffee beans, select what kind of espresso you want, and wait for the magic to be done for you. Controlling settings such as temperature and strength is easy, as is the maintenance bit that often annoys coffee machine users.

This modernistic high-end coffee machine comes out of German appliance manufacturer Miele’s factory, and it combines splendid design with reliable, top-of-the-range technology. The Miele CM5100 Barista would make a great Christmas present for any household, thanks to its versatility and its multiple (but easily understandable) control settings. The bean grinder is housed inside the machine, so all you need to do is store your favourite coffee beans in the appropriate reservoir. A 1.8L water tank should ensure you rarely have to refill the CM5100, and you can make two cups of espresso at once in case you have guests round.
This is the only built-in coffee machine in our little list, but it’s definitely worth at least considering the SMEG CMSC45NE. Have you got friends who recently moved and are setting up a new kitchen? Then this coffee machine might be the best Christmas present you could make them. Minimalistic design, subtle LCD display, automated rinsing – this is a low-maintenance but high-end coffee maker that does away with handles and buttons to achieve a different kind of functionality. There are five different strength settings to choose from, and you won’t be disappointed with any of them.
