Make espresso like a pro

The first home espresso machine with dual, smart sensors maintains the optimal temperature throughout for café-quality shots.

Explore the art of espresso at home

Create the taste you love with unlimited possibilities. We’ve combined the latest technology with the traditional espresso method to give you the perfect shot. And once you’ve mastered it, you can make any espresso-based drinks, from a cappuccino or flat white to a macchiato.

Authentic tasting shots with the KitchenAId espresso machine

Authentic tasting shots with the KitchenAid espresso machine

The KitchenAid espresso machine is the first home espresso machine with dual, smart temperature sensors. The temperature control works with these sensors and the unit’s water heater to keep the temperature within the optimal range for espresso. 


And, because no one wants to wait, it has fast-heating thermocoil technology to hit the optimal brewing temperature in less than 45 seconds. Then, sit back and taste the difference.

Create a rich espresso with the perfect crema

Create a rich espresso with the perfect crema

The mark of a well made shot is a dense hazelnut-coloured crema. The body, of dark caramel colour, is full, aromatic and balanced between acidity and bitterness. To get this beautiful, rich result, there needs to be low-pressure pre-infusion to extract flavour from the bean, before switching to high pressure extraction. 


The Italian 15-bar pump on our KitchenAid espresso machine provides that pressure sweet spot to create a professional-quality, rich, full-flavoured espresso shot and a creamy layer of crema.

Even tamping is easy with our clever portafilter

Even tamping is easy with our clever portafilter

There are many tips and tricks to pulling the perfect espresso but, ultimately, how the coffee grounds are held in your espresso machine is at the heart of a delicious shot. The portafilter, the basket and how you press (tamp) the grounds into the basket can make or break your espresso. 


The commercial-grade portafilter in the KitchenAid espresso machine has recessed spouts, giving you a stable flat base to help you achieve a consistently even tamp and extraction. Its 58 mm diameter helps to maintain optimal heat throughout extraction. That way you get tasty, flavourful cups every time.

Espresso just the way you like it

Espresso just the way you like it

The KitchenAid espresso machine is designed to fit your preferences. It has the flexibility to give experienced baristas room to flex, and newbies the comfort of factory default settings.


You can prepare 1 or 2 shots of espresso using the dose selector, and programme your preferred shot size if you’d like to, at the push of a button. It will brew freshly ground beans or prepackaged coffee, thanks to the 4 included basket filters. 


Double-wall, pressurised baskets help reduce extraction variability, a great choice for beginner baristas. Single-wall baskets give you the opportunity for greater control over the flavour profile of the shot.


Everything is there to help beginners inch towards being comfortable with experimentation — or just stay in their comfort zone.

Experiment with different coffee drinks

Experiment with different coffee drinks

Love coffee house culture? It all begins with the perfect espresso. Combine that espresso with your choice of milk to make a whole host of your favourite coffee recipes. 


Your KitchenAid espresso machine has a professional-style steam wand to deliver steam and allow you to ‘texture’ the milk directly in the jug. This means you can create rich foam or warm milk for cups of cappuccino, latte or a flat white. Or, you can use it to dispense hot water for a cup of tea or an Americano. All in the comfort of your own kitchen.

The espresso machine that’s sturdy and stylish

The espresso machine that’s sturdy and stylish

Style matters. So, the KitchenAid espresso machine 5KES6503 has looks as well as performance. The sturdy metal housing makes it durable and sustainable and its sleek, compact design means it fits nice and neatly on your counter. Choose from a selection of  gorgeous colours to suit your home environment. 


Strong and reliable, our espresso maker won’t let you down. The 5-year guarantee gives you extra reassurance, in case you ever need help with anything at all.

Get the best from your beans with our coffee grinder

Get the best from your beans with our coffee grinder

Grinding your own beans, rather than buying pre-ground, guarantees the best, freshest flavour and aroma. With 70 grind sizes, the KitchenAid coffee grinder gives you the precision grind you need, from authentic tasting espresso to coarse French press. This elegant and compact burr grinder can stand alone, or partner up with the KitchenAid espresso machine. You can even grind directly into the portafilter, as the two machines match and fit.

Did a lot of research prior to purchase. Wanted compact machine that produced excellent coffee. I’m not disappointed. This machine is very well made, looks good and makes outstanding coffee. It is easy to clean and to use. Very impressed!
