What To Consider

There a many things to consider; What coffee to buy, what is the correct way to grind it, how much do I want to spend, what is the value for money of specific machines, how easy is it to set up and use. How hard is it to clean. Popular Coffee Machines gives you the facts to enable you to make the right choice.

In the Popular Coffee Machines that follow we use these questions as the criteria for analysis, and give you a sound basis for your coffee machine selection.

Structural Differences

One of the first decisions to make is whether we want a capsule style machine, or a machine that uses ground coffee. I call this a basic structural decision point because the outcome is totally different. Even though the capsule machines have many types of coffee to choose from, you are still limited to their selection, and you cannot blend coffee, or tap it firm or soft as the capsule system does not allow you to do so.

It is interesting to note that pod machines have proliferated, but are not perceived as having the same quality as the higher end models. On the other end of the market, the more sophisticated  machines are becoming even more sophisticated, with the corresponding increase in price.

Another hing to consider is the degree of automation and then ease of use of the coffee machine. You can get very sophisticated models that grind the coffee for you and froth the milk, clean up after themselves, and almost drink the coffee for you as well. Automation is equivalent to cost, and not necessarily quality. I personally prefer a separate grinder because I can wash it out and use a different coffee very easily. My thoughts on auto-frothers is that some are ok, but in my opinion, the human touch when frothing milk does make a difference.

Features Versus Cost

The more features that are present on a coffeemaker, the higher the cost. Therefore, when buying a coffee machine, you should consider if the features add value or make a better tasting coffee. Some features add convenience, while others are there to ensure good coffee flavor  For me this is a baseline decision. I the flavor or the crema are not there, you might as well use instant coffee. Keep this in mind when purchasing a coffee machine.
