Ronald, All the machines will be able to do a cafe Crema and make espresso. The two you have chosen are actually very similar. In my opinion they both make great espresso beacuse of the ceramic burrs, temperature control and the Aroma control feature. They also have a unique steam wand for the super autos that is much more traditional and will allow you to really texture the milk properly. You can also of course use the one step feature. The programming is very easy and intuitive as well. I would get the Gaggia as it is a great price and makes an amazing espresso.
