Who is it for?
The home barista who wants the best possible bang for their buck.

Counter space and budget won’t stop you from achieving a top-shelf home espresso experience.
Why Do We Recommend It?
The Lelit Elizabeth takes many of our favorite espresso machine features and fits them into an impressively compact body at an affordable price without cutting any corners. With its PID temperature control, volumetric shot buttons, and built-in shot timer, you get all the control a barista needs to pull an excellent shot. On top of that, they’ve used a clever design that utilizes the steam boiler’s pressure to perform programmable pre-infusion. Lelit’s dedication to the details shines even in their portafilter baskets, which are more precise and easier to knock a puck out of than the vast majority of stock baskets. When it comes to steam, the Elizabeth sports something we’ve never seen on a machine this small: 2 bar steam pressure. That doesn’t just mean your cappuccino will be ready faster. It also means you’re able to produce the kind of finely-textured microfoam you’d expect at a coffee shop.
