The Bene Casa BC-99153 is a cheap and relatively nice-looking semi-automatic espresso machine. It costs just $45, so it is priced at a level that is within reach of most everyone.

The machine is compact and simple to operate. The major drawback of the unit is the steam pressure level of the brewing. The unit only brews at 3.5-bar pressure, and that is not enough to extract coffee flavors in a true espresso style, which requires more than 19-bar pressure. This means that you cannot expect the unit to make espresso-quality coffee like a regular espresso machine.

We rate the Bene Casa BC-99152 a 3.3 out of 10.
