Some coffee machines have an integrated pump, whereas other use steam pressure.

For quality coffee, a coffee machine with an integrated pump is recommended. The pump should reach at least 9 bars, but for a really good quality espresso, you need a device with a pressure of at least 15 bars. Cheaper devices with lower pressure are available, but you can't rely on them to make perfect espresso.
