This impressive semiautomatic Breville Oracle, available stateside in January, doses and tamps automatically with no mess. Separate steam and espresso boilers keep the water temperatures precise for their functions. A low-pressure pre-infusion gives grounds a chance to bloom before brewing – essential for perfect extraction. (If you can't wait until early next year, try the currently available Breville BES900XL semiautomatic machine instead.) [$2,000; brevilleusa.com]
