Mr Coffee Cafe Barista Espresso Maker Review & Giveaway – ends 6/2 1pm


Welcome Week One of the Mr. Coffee Father’s Day Giveaway Extravaganza, brought to you by Mr. Coffee, Mom to Bed by 8, Budget Earth, Everything Mommyhood, A Spectacled Owl and New Age Mama. Over the next three weeks, we will be bringing you three fabulous giveaways for different coffee machines to help keep the dads in your life fully caffeinated and ready for fun.

Everything Mommyhood received this amazing machine, a Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista Espresso Maker for review. We were so excited to get it, more so my husband than me! You see, my husband absolutely LOVES anything coffee, espresso, lattes, etc. Anything that has coffee in it, he wants to be drinking it. Upon arrival, we were more than eager to get it out of it’s package and see what it can do.

Upon taking it out of the package I was a bit overwhelmed, I’m so used to just a coffee machine where you put coffee and water in, and press a button. This has so much more than that. You add in Espresso Coffee and milk, along with water. You can pick from espresso, cappuccino, or even a latte to make! The cleaning cycle makes life easy too. Being a mom on the go, having a machine that cleans itself is a must. I love that is also includes a recipe book too.

It was so super easy to make an espresso, and I really thought it would be hard. I made a single and a double, you just pack the espresso with the little tool they give you and then lock it into place on the machine. Then you hit the button and in about 30 seconds you have espresso!

I also made a cappuccino since those are my favorite. I threw a little bit of sugar into the cup, packed some espresso, and put some milk in the reservoir. Pushed the button and that was it. SO SIMPLE. Here’s a little video I did:

Bring the coffeehouse home with the ultimate gift for gourmet espresso lovers! The Mr. Coffee® Café Barista brews gourmet, specialty coffeehouse-style beverages in the comfort of home at a fraction of the cost using a 15-bar pump that delivers bold espresso and perfectly frothed milk to create cappuccinos, lattes and more at the touch of a button. Delicious espresso is automatically dispensed into the rich and creamy milk whipped up by the automatic frothing system. Pre-programmed settings measure just the right amount of ingredients and selectable brew sizes range from a 2-oz espresso shot to a full 8-oz cup. A special cleaning cycle makes clean-up hassle-free. Included recipe booklet features best-of-the-season beverages!

Some of my favorite things about the Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista:

  • Semi-automatic 3-in-1 espresso, cappuccino and latte maker
  • 15-bar pump system brews rich-tasting espresso coffee
  • Trouble-free, automatic milk frother takes the guesswork out of frothing milk
  • One-touch control panel for drink selections
  • Easy-fill, removable water and milk reservoirs
  • Creates single and double servings
  • Programmed cleaning cycle

  83. Beanybopp says:

    Woah!! I am not a coffee drinker at all and who would have thought that it takes that much to make some of these drinks! I know that this has made it look easy (esp the milk part) compared to what they probably do at Starbucks and/or coffee shop but still. That stuff was coming out HOT and I would hate for it to spatter somewhere! My husband isnt into these types of drinks….or so he says but Im sure he would enjoy one from time to time just not enough to buy one of these. I think the ones with the K-cups would be perfect for us 🙂
