Our editorial team chose the products on this list based on our testing experience and real customer reviews on Amazon and productreview.com.au. For each category, we selected parameters based on careful research and then identified the automatic coffee machine with the highest review score within those parameters.
Our team selected the DeLonghi PrimaDonna Elite as the best overall as it has been extremely well-reviewed by customers across a number of websites, with an average review rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars. In fact, it has even been named one of Product Review's award winners based on its excellent ratings. This model also features on our best coffee machines guide.
This superb coffee machine makes delicious coffee in a flash, with its tubeless system, integrated and adjustable grinder and integrated cleaning system. Plus, it features an Automatic LatteCrema, which creates beautifully thick and creamy milk foam.
An easy-to-use touch screen allows you to manage the settings and meet your own personal needs. You can program up to six of your favourite coffee recipes and make your choices through the app using Bluetooth connectivity.
Depending on the size and features on offer, automatic coffee machines can start from as little as $100 or less and continue up to around $6,000. For the best budget pick, we chose the Sunbeam Café Barista as it comes at an appealing price along with a 4.7 out of 5-star rating on Amazon Australia from more than 5,300 online reviews.
This coffee machine is easy to use with a one-touch control panel that allows you to choose your favourite brew. It heats up quickly and creates good quality coffee every time. Meanwhile, the automatic milk frother works fast and is equally simple to use. And you can easily fit a coffee cup on the tray, which is straightforward to remove for cleaning.
Overall this coffee machine gets the job done for a great price and many online customers have commented on its incredible value for money.
For the best mid-range coffee machine we chose the De'Longhi Magnifica S, which has high review scores across a number of websites, including Amazon Australia where it has a rating of 4.6 out of 5 from over 3,000 online reviews.
A step up from the budget end, yet priced at under $1,000, this machine is great value for money and more importantly offers all the features needed to make great coffee. It has an easy-to-use control panel, offering 13 different settings to accommodate your personal taste. An in-built grinder means you can brew from the bean up, while the milk frother creates soft and creamy milk foam.
This mid-range machine is the perfect start to your home coffee-making and many online customers have been extremely happy with its performance and the price they paid for it.
Here is our full review of the De'Longhi Magnifica S.
For the top of the range, we could not go past the Breville Oracle Touch Espresso Machine, which has fabulous reviews across a variety of websites and an average rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars.
This premium coffee maker comes close to having your very own barista. With its touch screen control panel, you can select one of five coffee styles as well as customise eight personal choices. Once you've selected your brew, the machine does everything from grinding the beans to frothing the milk. And you can adjust everything to suit your needs.
The inbuilt grinder consistently grinds, doses and tamps 22g of coffee, similar to the machine at your favourite cafe. And the steam wand automatically froths the milk to perfection.
It comes in at quite a price, but many online customers say that the easy-to-use design and high-quality coffee make it worth every penny.
The Jura E6 isn't cheap, but it offers a lot for it's $1,699 price tag. If you want to make rich espresso-based coffee at home without having to learn how to use a manual espresso machine, the E6 is a great option. It makes several different types of coffee with fully customisable settings, has a built-in adjustable burr grinder and is easy to use and maintain.
However, the milk foam temperature settings are limited. If you always order your coffee extra hot, you won't be satisfied with the E6.

For the best automatic coffee machine to use in the office, we chose the Jura Giga 6 that we tested and reviewed earlier this year.
Definitely at the premium end of the scale, this Swiss-made coffee machine is an ideal addition to your office or any space that caters to large groups of people. It features a touch screen display panel, which is able to make up to 28 different programmable coffees. And all coffee can be customised to suit your personal taste.
It offers two in-built coffee grinders with air-tight storage containers, allowing you to use different beans in each. You can also choose which beans you would like, even make two coffees at the same time, each using different beans. The water tank holds 2.6 litres and, while removable, it can be easily refilled at the top. It also offers Bluetooth connectivity, so you can make coffees via the Jura mobile app.
An expensive purchase but one that would be a hit at the office, saving everyone from spending time and money on buying takeaway coffees.
For this category, we selected the Sunbeam Barista Max Coffee Machine as it comes with a great many favourable reviews across a variety of websites and has an average rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars. It is also one of Amazon's recommended products.
The best thing about fully automatic coffee machines is that they come with an in-built grinder so you can have a delicious cup of coffee straight from the bean. And this one features an integrated Tap & Go one-touch grinder with a conical burr design. This offers 30 adjustable settings as well as consistency when it comes to grind size.
As well as beautifully ground coffee beans, this machine features a Temp IQ Control system which basically means you get a great coffee with the correct amount of water and at the perfect temperature every time. And finally the steam wand will give you creamy velvety milk froth that is ideal for creating a touch of latte art.
