Which Coffee Machine Should You Buy?
Coffee maker with grinder
Bean to coffee machines have a grinder built into the machine. It does the whole coffee making process with one push of a button. If you want rich coffee like espressos, lattes and americanos, this is the machine for you. Simply put whole coffee beans in the top, push a button and get a cup ready for your coffee to be poured. Some of these coffee makers will also automatically froth your milk for you so there really is minimal effort required on your part.
Espresso coffee machines are also known as traditional pump machines. You control a lot of the coffee brewing process as you need to grind your own beans before putting them in the machine. These machines will produce a rich coffee as they filter the brew, and some machine will also froth your milk, but they are more difficult to use. They are extremely popular however due to the amazing coffee their produce.
Filter Coffee Machines
Filter coffee machines require coffee to already be ground before adding it to machine. Water then drips through the filter capturing the flavours of the specialty beans and producing a wonderful blend of coffee. Filter coffee machines include a carafe to capture the fresh coffee. They are easy to use and produce a large amount of coffee, although they do require more cleaning than most other coffee machines.
Pod & Capsule Coffee Makers
Pod and capsule coffee makers are the easiest to use as all you have to do is insert a sealed capsule with beans already inside. The machine then grinds, blends and roasts your coffee. These machines produce a flavoursome espresso although they are quite slow, are not advisable for homes with multiple coffee drinkers and you don’t get to experiment with premium specialty coffees, using these machines.
When choosing a type of coffee machine you need to be aware of the limitations and features of all the different types of machines. For example, ask yourself do you want to grind your own beans? How much control do you want over the brewing process? How flavoursome and rich do you want your coffee? What coffee can I use with what machine? Ask questions about yourself as a coffee drinker and then choose a machine that matches your lifestyle.
