What could be better than a cup of coffee freshly brewed on your own four walls?
If that's your thing, a coffee maker might be the perfect addition to your kitchen. However, there are so many options that it can be difficult to find the best coffee maker for you.
In addition, each brand offers many models and types. There are traditional espresso machines, more expensive bean cup machines, and increasingly popular pods and capsules. Not to forget, of course, the good old filter engine.
Once you've decided on a machine, it's hard to find a model in its price range.
With so many things in mind, let's see if we can clear up and take a closer look at some of the major machine brands and types in our next coffee machine review.
Espresso machines are still very popular, even though they have been around for a long time. These machines use ground coffee, which means you can make your espresso the way you want it and by default in the cafe with your favorite coffee.
The problem with this is that you have to do everything manually, from measuring the right amount of coffee into the machine, stepping on enough coffee to get the results you want, to cleaning the machine after each use. So it really depends on what's important to you – if you want complete control over the brewing process, including forcing the right amount of water through the coffee to extract enough aroma to get the best espresso, then an espresso machine can do it for you.
Most modern espresso machines can accept coffee pods filled with ground coffee that you simply put in the machine. While this simplifies some of the problems mentioned above, it limits your coffee choices and control over the brewing process.
