How do I get the best es­presso?

T3 - - Gadget Guru -

Pre-brewed pods re­ceive less of GaGu’s trade­mark dis­dain than you might ex­pect – they’re quick and easy, not messy, and de­li­cious enough. But bang­ing out one of Clooney’s finest auto brews of­fers none of the sat­is­fac­tion of the small cup you’ll get out of a Gag­gia Nav­iglio (£439), an af­ford­able bean-to-cup de­vice from a com­pany that’s been pro­duc­ing es­presso mak­ers for nearly 80 years.

Miele’s sexy cof­fee rec­tan­gle, the £850 CM 6110, de­serves a lit­tle recog­ni­tion for its great in­ter­face and hid­den bean grinder, and there’s a wealth of more ex­pen­sive chromed kit that you can stick in your kitchen in or­der to play Star­bucks at home. But that Nav­iglio? It’s re­ally good. Don’t pay more un­til you’ve tried it.
