Sure, our espresso machines give us energy, but how much are they taking from the planet? We ran a test on a few of our favorites to show examples of the electricity draw and cost involved with running these machines each year. Our cost estimates are based on a national US average of $.11/kWh -- you can find more accurate data for your specific area here.

Incidentally, we measured how much kWh it took to make a one-touch cappuccino on the Jura Z7 and found that it was .02kWh -- at $.11/kWh, that means you'd need to make about 5 cappuccinos to rack up 1 cent in energy costs!
