Loaded with commercial parts, a quiet vibration pump, and a plethora of features like a PID controller that are comparable with more expensive machines, the Profitec Pro 500 PID is a fantastic idea if you're considering a surprise gift for mom this year.
This highly capable heat exchanger espresso machine, comes from Profitec, a brand known for producing products that provide tremendous performance, ease-of-use and distinguished build quality, all without compromising on simplicity.
With the Pro 500 PID, you'll get a machine that brews with a 2L stainless steel boiler and powerful 1400W heating element, complimented by the iconic E61 brew group and the aforementioned PID controller.
With this combination of features and attention to detail, the Pro 500 PID lends a level of temperature stability previously unheard of in a heat exchanger espresso machine. Gone is the need for cooling flushes is eliminated, which removes a considerable limitation from this class of machine.
All in all, the Pro 500 PID sets itself apart as a superior machine with the commercial edge necessary to measure up against machines with a much greater asking price. The PID upgrade really shines, and will almost certainly leave mom beaming.
We currently carry the Gaggia Classic Pro semi-automatic espresso machine in six colors: Stainless Steel, Cherry Red, Classic Blue, Industrial Grey, Thunder Black and Polar White. Offer mom a pop of color to an already beloved and reliable semi-automatic espresso machine in the coffee and espresso industry that is perfect for entry-level home baristas. If mom wants to bring in her special day with a creamy cafe-style cappuccino, the Classic Pro is the perfect choice for a Mother’s Day Gift.
Since the Classic Pro’s release, users have been treated to industry-leading features like a commercial steam wand for better control when frothing milk, rocker switches and ready lights for a clear and convenient control panel, as well as an updated frame and improved pump mounts for a quieter operation while brewing.
The Classic Pro is our go-to suggestion for users looking for an entry-level semi-automatic espresso machine with great value, durability and the ability to create Italian-style coffee and espresso beverages that mom is sure to love.
If you really want to knock mom’s socks off, we recommend the Gaggia Cadorna Prestige. Features-wise, this bean-to-cup machine sports a full-color TFT screen display with backlight buttons to compliment its high-tech design, user profile creation and personalization and access settings for increased usability.
The Cadorna Prestige is one of our favorite super-automatic machines because it delivers “fool-proof” ways to create 14 different pre-programmed beverages, including ristretto, espresso, espresso lungo, coffee, americano, cappuccino, cappuccino XL, café au lait, café cortado, latte macchiato, latte macchiato XL, flat white, frothed milk, and hot water for tea, hot cocoa, or infusions. Mom can create an espresso or milk-beverage of her choosing, and experiment with the grind setting, coffee temperature, the aroma and dosage using Gaggia’s Optiaroma system which can all be saved to her own user profile.
If mom is an entry or intermediate-level at-home barista, the Cadorna Prestige could shape up to be an all-time great Mother’s Day gift.
The JURA E6 is another machine in our collection we confidently believe any mom will adore. If mom prefers convenience over control and is particularly a fan of modern technology, the E6 delivers all of the above and more.
As one of the first espresso machines to feature the innovative Pulse Extraction Process, the E6 makes a more full-bodied, flavorful espresso with thicker crema compared to drinks made with other machines. The E6 features an Intelligent Pre-Brew Aroma System, which pre-infuses grounds before brewing to ensure the best possible extraction.
In general, JURA machines tend to be very user-friendly, and the E6 is no exception. With very simple controls, mom will be able to make coffee shop quality drinks with ease. By blending traditional craftsmanship and modern technology, this machine is a phenomenal gift for any mom who just wants a “grab and go” espresso-drinking experience.
For the mom that’s always on the go, the AeroPress Go Travel Coffee Press is a one-of-a-kind coffee maker brews American, espresso, and cold brew coffee to fuel an active lifestyle. The AeroPress Go mug can hold 15 oz. or almost two 8 oz. servings of American style coffee or cold brew coffee that can be enjoyed anywhere and anytime.
Pour over is a manual coffee brewing method, often considered to be an “artisan” brew method. It allows you to control all of the variables during the brewing process from the temperature of your water to the technique used to pour water through the coffee grounds.
If you’ve got a mom who’s fascinated by the art of brewing coffee, we would love to present to you E&B Lab’s Pour Over Set. Not only does it have a phenomenal design (you can thank their team in Italy for hand making each item just for you) but it’s also designed to make the pour over process as efficient as possible by using a borosilicate glass carafe that’s thermoshock resistant so you can safely brew your coffee without any worries.
Say you pick up a semi-automatic or even a prosumer espresso machine as a gift for Mother’s Day. These machines do not come with a built-in grinder like super-automatic machines, so mom’s going to need a quality espresso grinder to equally grind fresh whole bean coffee to prepare a flavorful espresso beverage.
With 60 products available in a plethora of bold designs and colors like Ferrari Red, Dubai Gold, Stained Walnut and Tiffany Blue, we can almost guarantee our Eureka Mignon Collection will have a coffee grinder in mom’s favorite shade, design or hue.
With features like an easy-to-use burr grinder with 55 mm burrs and a touch screen display, each of the machines offered in the Mingon line - the Brew Pro, Crono, Design, Filtro, Magnifico, Perfetto, Silenzio and Specialita - grinds quietly and offers simple and responsive controls.
If mom already has the machine and grinder of her dreams, we recommend getting her the perfect cup or mug to carry her coffee in. As the pioneers behind hands-free hydration, our selection of Camelbak mugs, tumblers, and bottles are the perfect solution for helping mom keep her coffee hot or water cold while on the go.
If the mom in your life likes a classic cup of coffee, we recommend checking out our selection of cups and saucers from ECM. The Cappuccino and Espresso Cups And Saucers, both available in a set of six, are perfect for mom to enjoy her favorite drinks.
If you think mom would rather have something else, you can also check out the rest of our coffee cups and saucers selection.
