If you’re looking for a unique coffee machine, take a look at this KOTLIE 4 in 1 espresso coffee machine review. Let’s get right into it!
For a simple coffee machine, the design isn’t too bad! It looks very clean, and the brown ‘coffee bean’ color at the front really suits the rest of the machine. It does look a bit plasticky though, so if you are looking for something a bit more high-class, you might want to check out our Diletta Bello review.
What Is Included in Its 4-in-1 Design?
There are four different types of coffee you can use to make your delicious drinks with this interesting machine. Let’s look at them in more detail here:
For coffee purists, you’ll be relieved to know that it provides ground coffee functionality, so you can use some of your favorite coffee beans to make coffee using this machine. It was easy to use and made fantastic-tasting coffee at the end.
Nespresso Pod Coffee
If you’re a big lover of Nespresso coffee, you’re in luck here. No matter what your favorite Nespresso pod is, you can use it with this machine. I found that it was easy to do, and I never had an issue with using Nespresso pods with this machine.
ESE Pod Coffee
I really like ESE (easy-serve espresso) pod coffee. It’s easy to use, the coffee is reasonably nice for pod coffee, and it leaves next to no mess. Because of this, I was quite happy to see that this machine provides this option. It worked just as expected, and I used this feature quite a lot.
Finally, it also offers K-cup pods. I’ve always been a fan of K-cups, ever since I was a young adult, so I liked using them for the ease and convenience that they offer. The coffee tasted as nice as any other K-cup machine.
19 Bar Pressure
The biggest benefit to this machine, apart from the 4-in-1 functionality, is that it provides 19 bars of pressure at 95°C. This makes the coffee even more delicious, as it extracts more flavor, and you can really taste the difference when you drink it.
Using the Machine
The machine is very easy to use. There are only three buttons: the power button, short espresso, and long espresso. What more do you need? I must say, I loved the simplicity of this machine.
Cleaning the Machine
The machine is very easy to clean, the drip tray and the water tank are easily removable, and this saved so much time with washing up.
Unfortunately, one of the biggest issues with this machine is the size. It wasn’t big enough to fit my 10oz coffee cup, and it definitely wouldn’t have been able to fit my travel mug in there. Often, I would have to use an espresso cup and then transport the coffee from there to my bigger cup or travel mug.

Wrapping Up My KOTLIE 4 in 1 Espresso Coffee Machine Review
All in all, this is a great machine. The 4 in 1 functionality makes it perfect for families where different people like making coffee differently. Although the coffee isn’t as great as a traditional espresso machine, and it doesn’t fit big cups, it’s still pretty great for what it does.
