The Complete Coffee Machines Buying Guide
Over the past few decades, the demand for Coffee Machines has been growing. Well, the habit of coffee drinking was there since the 16th century. Coffee Machines in old-days were big, expensive, and we saw them only in coffee shops. Thanks to the modern technology, now we have compact machines that easily fit in our kitchens. Why not? A Coffee Machine can add more personality to your kitchen. Some people consider it as a must-have device for every home.
Do you really want to buy a Coffee Machine?: Ask yourself the important question. Well, I am saying it for a reason. Unless you are a heavy coffee drinker, do you want a one? It is not an expensive device, but it consumes electricity. For example, Filter Coffee Machines have a hot plate that keeps the coffee hot. It is a well-known fact that hot plates consume a lot of electricity, and leaving it on all day can raise your energy bills. Anyway, if you are a heavy coffee drinker, then you will not worry about energy bills. I know you can’t survive without it.
Why should you have a coffee machine?: Other than consuming electricity, modern machines are not that expensive to buy. You can buy a basic one for under $50. Now, that is very cheap, doesn’t it? When visitors come to your home, serving them a hot coffee with the machine you have is classier than serving them sachet coffee. Some people buy expensive shop-style machines because they want it every hour. People are too busy to hit coffee shops today, and they want to have it ready in their homes. So, if you are a heavy coffee drinker, and you are rich enough to afford a $1000-dollar machines; then why not?
What you should consider?: You have more options to choose from, and each option comes with advantages and disadvantages. Below is a list of Coffee Machines types:
* Filter Coffee Machines:
Just pour hot water, and the heating element in the machine heats water before dripping down into the jar below. Heated water drips down through a basket of coffee into the jar where a heated plate keeps it heated. You can use any ground coffee.
* Capsule Coffee Machines: Also, known as Pod Machines. Insert the coffee capsule into the machine, and the machine will pierce it when you press the button. Coffee in the pod gets mixed with hot water and poured into the waiting mug.
* Pump Espresso Maker: These machines boil water up to the right temperature for coffee (between 85C and 92C.) The heated water then passed through ground coffee. Most Pump Espresso Makers come with a tool that heats milk for lattes and cappuccinos.
* Bean-to-cup: In other words, it is a Pump Espresso maker that comes with an inbuilt grinder.
So, what machine do you prefer now? Make sure you buy the machine from a reputable manufacturer and with a warranty. Well, I can’t comment on the quality and taste you get when you do it yourself, and when you buy it from a shop made by a coffee expert. Anyway, a home machine can save your time and will satisfy your craving whenever you want. It is worth buying so.
