The Cafe Bellissimo semi-automatic espresso machine has been making a lot of noise in some coffee circles recently, and as such, I just had to try it.
So, feel free to read on as I list all the advantages and disadvantages that this machine possesses.
So, without wasting any more of your precious time, let’s get started with my review of the Café Bellissimo Semi Automatic Espresso Machine!
At A Glance
The Design of It
I must say this is a beautiful machine. The white look contrasts fantastically with the bronze tamp and buttons, making it look timeless. It also comes in a steel silver color, which also looks stunning (but personally, I prefer it in white).
On top of this, the buttons look clean and are very easy to use, making this machine perfect for beginners and experienced baristas alike.
I must admit, I have never seen a coffee machine have this feature. This machine is WiFi connected, which basically means that you can hook this machine up to your phone and customize drink preferences by volume and strength, so it can make your perfect coffee, no matter how specific you like it.
I tried this, and I must admit, it worked perfectly. Although it was a bit of a pain to set up, once I did it, it worked quite well.
However, if you usually make quite a simple espresso, you may find that this step is too much hassle for what it’s worth.
There’s also a grinder built into this machine. It’s not the best grinder in the world, but it does the job.
I could easily adjust the grind size depending on the drink I was making, and it really added to the overall taste of the coffee.
15 Bar Pump
The coffee that it created was quite nice. The 15-bar pump drew out some great flavors, and the espresso that I made from it was nicely balanced. Top marks for this machine!
I found that the steam frother was a nice addition to this machine.
I was able to get many different microfoam textures and different thicknesses for cappuccinos (my favorite drink), and it didn’t take too long to figure out!
I also found that the steaming wand rotated 180 degrees, which made it very convenient and easy to use.

Wrapping Up My Cafe Bellissimo Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine Review
I must say, I really enjoyed this machine. The exterior design is superb, and the coffee it makes isn’t too bad either!
However, the cleaning did take some time, and the grinder wasn’t 5 stars. But in the end, I don’t think it mattered too much thanks to the high-quality coffee it can churn out.
Nevertheless, if you want a coffee machine with a higher-quality coffee grinder, check out the Mueller!
