Eversys coffee machines are relatively new to the industry, first making their mark in the world of automatic coffee machines back in 2009. They continue to be the front runners in the automatic, bean-to-cup coffee machine category, thanks to their industry leading automation and barista-replacing brewing capabilities. As a result, the Eversys line is very expensive compared to the rest of the industry, for good reason. Learn more ->  Here’s Why Eversys Coffee Machines are So Expensive.

Before we continue and put the best Eversys coffee machines head-to-head, let’s address the elephant in the room: We’re one of Eversys’ largest partners and machine suppliers in the UK. We know what we’re talking about, but you’re probably a little sceptical that this best-of list is totally unbiased. To put you at ease, we’re in the business of educating customers, not selling machines that aren’t fit for your needs.

The Eversys Range is vast, with a large number of optional extras and small varitions between sub-categories, but the base models come in three variations: the Cameo, Enigma and Shotmaster. If you get to the end of this article and still aren’t sure if Eversys is right for you, why not compare Compare all coffee machines?

The Best Value – Eversys Cameo C2 RRP £22,000

There’s no hiding the fact that Eversys machines are very expensive, far exceeding the average price of a typical bean-to-cup machine like those from Schaerer. It makes sense, then, that those buying into the Eversys range typically look at the most affordable option, the Eversys Cameo, to get their foot in the door into the world of quality automatic coffee machines.

In our minds, the Cameo stands out as the best value for money in the Eversys range, offering the same ETC control system and repeatability over the coffee quality, same automated milk steaming, and the same reliable cleaning and maintenance monitoring at a significantly lower price point.

  • e’Foam with Micro Air Dosing System
  • Electronic Milk Texturing (EMT) System
  • Two 1.2kg Bean Hoppers
  • Bean Hopper Lock and Level Alert
  • Two Milk Types (Dual Milk)
  • 1.5 Step (Milk Arm)
  • Cold Milk Foam
  • c’Fridge
  • High Tea Outlet (200mm)
  • PowerPlus 5.6kW Steam Boiler Power
  • Cup Centering Guide

So, what corners does the Cameo cut to be the cheapest in the lineup? The main drawback with the Cameo compared to the models listed below are that of volume and simultaneous drink dispensing. The cameo is suited for 175 drinks per hour, and up to two drinks brewed at any one time. This volume is absolutely enough for many applications, including medium to low volume cafes, restaurants, bars and leisure, but pales in comparison to the other models in the lineup.
