Braun Tassimo, $169
Braun Tassimo, $169
This classy model looks like a spaceship but has a compact physique. It offers nine coffee brands. I greatly appreciated its one-touch approach. The pods contain both coffee and milk, which takes the guesswork (and the risk of getting burned) out of your hands.

Bottom line: All these machines provide a good-quality beverage, but the Tassimo wins for ease of use. Plus, you don't need a star's bucks to buy it.
