How to Choose the Best Home Coffee Machine?

A coffee drinker knows that nothing beats a cup of freshly brewed coffee right in the comfort of their own home. These days, there are hundreds of options available when it comes to home coffee espresso machines. Depending on what you’re looking for, you can bring home the right one, from the simplest coffee maker to a full-featured one with all the bells and whistles like warmers to keep your coffee piping hot, timers for scheduled brewing, and all types of other add-ons.

Anthony Espresso has put together some tips on what you should consider when buying a coffee or espresso machine for your home.

What to Consider When Buying a Coffee Machine?

  1. Price

When looking at coffee machines for your home, it’s easy to get carried away and buy one you can’t really afford. All the add-ons seem great, but ask yourself whether you really need them. Set a budget and stick to it. Home coffee machines can range from hundreds to thousands, so make sure you take your time to research the type of machine that works best for your needs and your price range.

  1. Size

The size of the coffee machine you pick for your home is an extremely important decision. The more extravagant machines are usually the largest and most expensive. However, ask yourself if you have the counter space for it in your kitchen. Look for the best coffee machine in the size that you need and make an informed decision based on your research. If you’re making coffee just for yourself, consider getting one with only one coffee filter instead of multiple filters to keep it from taking up a lot of space.

  1. Add-Ons

Do you want a machine that comes with a scheduled brewing time and an automatic timer? Is it really worth buying a coffee maker with warmers so your coffee stays hot all day? Do you have the proper coffee mugs if your guests want a latte or cappuccino? These are some things to consider when choosing a coffee machine.

  1. Type

There are many choices when selecting the type of coffee machine you want to buy for your home, and there are plenty of ways to make a rejuvenating cup of coffee. Before investing in a quality coffee machine, you’ll need to choose between capsule, filter, and bean-to-cup machines.

Different Types of Coffee Machines for Home

  1. Capsule Coffee Machines

These machines use coffee that comes in a small pod. When you want a cup of coffee, you place the pod in the coffee machine, select the style of coffee you wish to have by pressing a button, and then a hot beverage is pushed through the machine into your mug. These machines are pretty easy to maintain and clean. However, you are often restricted to the coffee capsules sold by the manufacturer of the machine.

Features of capsule coffee machines:

  • Capsules
  • Water tank
  • Pump
  • Elegant designs
  1. Filter Coffee Machines

With these machines, you pour water into the machine to warm up and drip through a basket of ground coffee into the carafe beneath it, which stays warm on a hot plate.

Features of filter coffee machines:

  • Water tank capacity
  • Coffee container
  • Filter
  • Carafe (made of heat-resistant glass)
  • Hot plate (to keep the carafe warm and maintain the temperature of your coffee)

  1. Bean-to-Cup Coffee Machines

This machine grinds coffee beans and then runs hot water into them, pushing the beverage into your mug. It’s similar to a pump espresso machine, except it comes with a grinder.

Features of bean-to-cup coffee machines:

  • Heating element
  • Grinder
  • Water filter and water tank
  • Pump
  • Possibility to choose between multiple coffee recipes
  • Automatic rinsing
  • Possibility of creating personal recipes
  • Drip tray

Now you’re armed with all the information you need to buy the best coffee machine for your home. After doing your research, you’ll be sure to end up with the best quality coffee machine for your kitchen, whether a top-notch bean-to-cup machine with automatically scheduled brewing or a small capsule coffee machine for a quick morning buzz.
