How To Find The Best Coffee Machine For You

 I don't think that there's anything better than a cup of freshly brewed coffee first thing in the morning. Nothing beats that amazing taste and heavenly aroma. With our busy schedules, it's difficult to enjoy in the comfort of your own home a good cup of coffee, so most of us just take a coffee to go and carry on with the day, but what if things could be different? What if you could enjoy a delicious cup of coffee made by you, instead of buying it? Sounds nice, right? Then follow this easy guide to find the perfect coffee machine for you.

 First of all, did you think of how involved you want to be in the making of your coffee? Or about what budget you will be most comfortable in spending? Once you have these things cleared in your mind, things get a lot easier but don't forget that the more work a coffee machine has to make, the more money you will have to pay for it. Of course, expensive is not always better, so let's look at other characteristics.

Always think about how many people will use this machine and will they know how to use it. That will also help you narrow down your options. You can also consult a specialist and take a look at the wide range of high-end coffee machines.

Manual coffee machine - if you want to discover new types of coffee beans and play with different aroma's, then this machine is right up your alley. Most models use a motor driven pump to force the exact amount of water needed through a thermo block, creating a coffee to your specific taste. While they require slightly more work than an automated machine, you have a lot more control over the final product.

A capsule (or pod)  - coffee machine removes the need to use coffee beans entirely, instead relying on capsules of ground coffee wrapped in filter paper. These are inserted into the machine, which then pierces the pod and forces hot water over the contents to create an espresso. While extremely fast and easy to use, the capsules are slightly more expensive per cup than the equivalent in beans and machine quality can vary.

Automatic coffee machine - This machine does all the work for you - simply add some coffee beans and the machine will grind them and dispense them at the touch of a button. They are often more expensive than manual models, as well as slightly noisier, but they are the ultimate appliance for people who want quick coffee with little hassle.

 To make your choice easier, narrow your choices down to maybe 3 or 4 machines and search for reviews about those machines. Weigh up their own set of pro’s and con’s as experienced by people who have used the machine themselves – and from there decide what your best fit is.
