Coffee machines

If you like the aroma of fresh coffee in the mornings, a coffee machine needs to be at the top of your kitchen appliance shopping list.

When you decide to purchase your appliance, you are faced with a mind-numbing range of products from the bean to cup machines to the standard filter coffee makers. The right one for you will depend on a number of factors.

Firstly, price. There is a vast difference in the price of these appliances ranging from a few hundred pounds to about twenty pounds. If you are a real coffee connoisseur, you may feel that the price is justified however, if you just want a good cup of coffee, a filter machine may be all you need.

The next thing to consider is the running cost. A bean to cup appliance uses coffee beans, which are more expensive to buy than ground coffee, but whereas you usually make a jug of filter coffee, which you may not use completely, you only make a cup of coffee with the more expensive machine resulting in no waste.

Lastly, space. The filter coffee maker only takes up the same space as a kettle, the bean to coffee machine however, takes up much more space on your kitchen worktop.

Whichever appliance you decide on there is one thing for sure, there is nothing like the smell of freshly brewed coffee.
