We all have been in that stage of life where we are stuck with deadlines; have to finish a report, have to submit a thesis, have to make presentations and have to get done with everything in the shortest amount of time (yes that happens, life happens, you know…). With all these tight schedules the only thing that gives us constant company is that mug lying on your sink now to get washed and to fill itself up with hot brewed coffee!!


Coffee, the name itself is so reviving. Every time you were tired and every time you were sleepy, it is coffee that kept you awake. The aroma of that addicting beverage can steal all your tiredness with just one sip, bingo! You never forget to refill your coffee jar when it’s ending; you are serious about it I know.


Starting with the name of the best espresso, cappuccino, and latte maker, the Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista is nothing but a deal maker for all those addicted coffee drinkers. The advanced-level coffee grinder will amaze you with the goodness of aroma and richness every time you make coffee on this. No matter if you want to try the various brewing method, starting from Turkish to Dripped, all can be performed single-handedly by this champ.


But why is this so popular? Well, first of all, it is crazy inexpensive. At this price, it’s difficult to get a shock resistant and heavy duty non-vibrant metal. Moreover, the device is so silent that it sounds like a whisper when it’s switched on grinding some coarse coffee beans!


Moving on with its abilities to make the cafe-style coffee drinks at home. Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista will provide you with exactly what you want with your coffee beans. For fine Espresso or for coarse French presses, dial down this machine; personalize the settings in order to adjust the coffee-to-water ratio according to your taste, and boom! - The rest will be done by Mr. Coffee, itself. By the way, this volume control option really comes in handy when you want to brew some cappuccinos, espresso, lattes (be it toffee latte, Nutella latte, pumpkin spice latte) or any other café-style drink that you might be craving right now...


With its volume control option settings, do your trial and error as much as you want until you get your perfect settings. Another amazing fact that will make you glued to this super-machine is the One Touch Control Panel. With this, the usage of coffee machines gets even easier. The panel basically has 3 icons and buttons at the top of the machine with Espresso, Latte, and cappuccino written on it. Plus, it gives you the option to go either Auto or Manual; so if you are in a hurry and want your quick cup of coffee, press Auto. And if you are in the mood of something creative, and craving something new, click Manual and hop on to make your own delicious cup of coffee. Doesn’t that sound intriguing already?


Because Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista involves a removable milk reservoir, it produces froths milk automatically. And we all know how the consistency of milk can change the taste of coffee by either being a heavy milky beverage or something extremely lighter that can be hardly called “coffee”.  With Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista, you can sit relax as your machine makes the coffee. Just simply, select the shot filter (it can be single or double), choose your grounds, fill it with the amount of milk you want to make froth of and select your brew. That’s it, relax and watch as the machine crashing beans and making coffee, keeping the taste and aroma remain intact, no bitter taste whatsoever.  


Moreover, the removable milk reservoir of Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista also prevents wastages. Say, for example, if you have any leftover milk after brewing the coffee, you can remove the reservoir from the machine and put it into the refrigerator. Next time, just fill up the reservoir with milk, stick it with the machine and let the Barista decide the amount it needs to make your cup of delicious coffee.

The components of Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista are durable as they are made with metal (not plastic). The control buttons are also visible, large and easy to control. Bingo!


Since Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista requires only 175-177*F to make coffee, the heat produced is neither too much or less. This temperature prevents the raw flavor evaporating from the bean, ensuring you with a perfect aroma of finely grounded coffee beans, every time you brew it. Thus another problem solved!


To be frank, there are so many reasons why you should go for 3-in-1, latte, espresso, and cappuccino maker. Well, it could be a little bit slow to all those fast runners who like to pop their coffee beans in the machine and expect it to be ready by the next second. Alas! this doesn’t work that way, you have to give this Barista some time to work its magic. On the plus point, as soon as you give the machine some time (27-30 seconds, to be precise), the coffee machine would make the best coffee you have ever tasted.


Continuing the star features of Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista, there are so many little details that make this Barista stand out among the crowds. The removable water tank is another important feature to talk upon. It is placed at the back of the device so that the Barista looks aesthetically pleasing. Plus, you can remove the tank anytime you want or top-fill in order to pour water in the machine. 


As a smart buyer, you should opt for one coffee machine that has an easy cleansing procedure.  Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista has programmed cleaning cycle facilities, and this will lead you to clean the device in a guided manner (so you don’t end up with messy kitchen). The programmed cleaning cycle makes the cleaning procedure easier. Along with frothed milk dispensing tube, the milk doesn’t spill everywhere, so that’s also a plus in terms of cleanliness. And all these make the Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista a must-have machine for the coffee addicts, with pride.


Let’s talk about the looks (hehe!)


When Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista is on board, you may think we are going to spoil you only with its features, but behold! This coffee machine is ultimately good looking to be placed gracefully in your home or office kitchen. The Barista does more than justice when we talk about the color composition, the exterior and materials.


First, Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista comes in three different colors – Red, Silver, and White, so choose as you like.

And as Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista comes in 15-bar pump system to brew the amazingly tasteful rich-tasting espresso coffee, I hardly think you can go wrong with this!

Let’s round up our Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista review with the pros and cons of the machine.

Pros

  • For a coffee machine to be under $200, the user gets a semi-professional machine that can challenge all the popular coffee shops with its super ability to make cappuccino, latte, espresso and other various kinds of coffee
  • The machine froths the milk, so it reduces the working time. Plus the device comes with an adjustable dial, which has been voted as one of the most favorite attributes by the Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista users.
  • Easy to use control display enables the user to have a single, double, or prolonged shot of coffee.
  • The Barista requires one and a half spoon of espresso to make a decent sized cup of coffee. Comparatively, any other high-end, expensive (quality) machine will require 4 scoops to make the same cup of coffee. So Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista is a money saver.
  • The electric pump provides with 15 Bars of pressure.
  • Comes with a dishwasher-safe parts
  • Can heat up in less than 30 seconds
  • Practical and efficient
  • Modern Design
  • 1-year limited warranty

Cons

  • The removable water tank is kind of convenient, initially. But once you have removed the water holder, it can be difficult to place it back properly. Many users complained there was a seam slip problem when they tried to put the tank back on, and that had a negative impact on the taste of the coffee they made afterward. So it is ideal to limit removing and replacing the water tank as less as possible (though it hinders the purpose of having a “removable” water tank).
  • The coffee machine is inconsistent in providing the “best” coffee all the time.
  • The Barista is expected to last 2 years, maximum. As most users say, the device doesn’t last them long like other high-end premium coffee machines. However, since the price tag is quite affordable, a customer doesn’t seem to mind much with this factor.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Question 1: Can I make the usual regular coffee with Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista?

Answer: Yes, that is absolutely possible.


When making a regular cup of coffee, press on either double or single shot and then run the machine on a double cycle. Make sure you are running with the same ground to get a nicely brewed coffee.


Question 2: Does Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista turn off by itself after I am done frothing the milk or making the espresso?

Answer: Not really.


Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista goes to Sleep Mode when nothing is commanded for a period of 15 minutes, aka, the machine doesn’t respond after 15 minutes of inactivity.


But remember that, the machine goes to Sleep Mode but doesn’t turn off. So you have to manually turn off the power button to prevent any unwanted situation. And also, the leftover milk in the reservoir may go stale if left out for a long inactive time, so keep that in the refrigerator to keep it fresh and reusable.


Question 3: Can mild cappuccinos be made on Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista?

Answer: Yes you can!


Mild Cappuccino is liked by so many people because of its gentle yet yummy taste. With Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista, the first thing you have to do is select the filter, you can choose single or double filter as you may like.


For a milder coffee, you can buy yourself some mild espresso powder, for example, Starbucks espresso. If you are in the mood of a stronger coffee, then you can choose Publix espresso.

Plus, adding more or less milk to the coffee changes the consistency and strength of the coffee, which you can do to get a milder cappuccino without buying any additional coffee powder.

Final words…

Despite having some cons, Mr. Coffee Cafe Barista is a well-designed coffee maker that is perfectly suitable for home use.


This little handy-barista makes you espresso, latte or cappuccino, reviving you every time you need.
