Coffee Maker for your Kitchen

Coffee Maker Coffee Maker

That’s why buying a new machine can be a really big decision and feel like the whole house’s happiness rests in the balance. Here are some things to know before you do it. There are many different types of coffee makers, even some that you might have never heard of! So let’s look at the most popular types and their features.

Drip coffee maker

A drip coffee maker is a standard appliance in most homes and businesses. It’s great for anyone who wants to quickly brew multiple cups of coffee at a time. This type of coffee brewer includes a reservoir space to add water, a filter basket for coffee grounds, and a carafe to hold the brewed coffee.

Pod coffee maker

Pod-style, single-serve coffee machines were made popular by Keurig, and now brands like Nespresso, Bunn, and others have joined this trend. Pod-style coffee makers allow you to make just one cup of coffee at a time. They’re super quick and convenient for offices and homes where everyone likes a different style of coffee (pods can also be purchased for tea or hot chocolate). They’re also fairly expensive.

Home espresso machine

Home espresso machines are for the serious coffee aficionado. These machines make it
possible to enjoy authentic espresso and coffeehouse-style drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, and macchiatos every day. They’re much more expensive than most other types of coffee makers, but if you visit coffee shops regularly, owning your own espresso machine may save you money in the long run. 

Cold brew coffee maker

Cold brew coffee is all the rage, and for good reason: Making a refreshing glass of iced coffee is so easy, and iced coffee is smoother and less acidic than brewed. Iced coffee also lasts longer before it becomes stale, and you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for two weeks. You can brew iced coffee easily by soaking ground coffee in filtered water overnight in any non-reactive container (a glass jar or plastic pitcher works great). But then you have to deal with filtering the grounds before you can drink the iced coffee. More and more companies are offering devices to help make the process simpler.

If your home consists of 4-6 members who drink a single cup of coffee every morning buying a single-serve is not applicable. Because then you’d have to spend more time and effort in making a single cup 5 times for each of your home members before leaving for work.

Below $100: Coffee makers such as espresso machines, single-serve machines, and French press machines often fall into this range. Espresso machines are available in different sizes with basic espresso features, so buying them at a low cost is possible. Affordable coffee makers boast of a simple “click and serve” service. They lack complex programmability and features. And they’re fairly durable and energy-efficient to use for a long time.

Most modern coffee maker versions come with auto-shutoff features. This reduces the energy cost of your home and increases the durability factor of the coffee machine. Coffee makers that come in thermal carafes are usually made up of stainless steel. This keeps the coffee hot for longer as it restricts the liquid from evaporating. So all the heat is sealed inside the pot.

For an improved coffee-brewing experience, you can get yourself a cappuccino or espresso coffee machine. There are many different types of cappuccino and espresso coffee makers available in the market and each has its own features to make the coffee-making process simpler for you.  If you want to make perfect cappuccinos and lattes with minimum efforts, a fully automatic machine is for you. By simply pressing a button, these machines will do the job of grinding, dosing, tamping and dosing all by itself. Rather than adjusting multiple settings and pressing various buttons, a fully automatic espresso maker allows you to get your favorite cup of coffee in an instant.

A lot of coffee makers have water filters to eliminate foul odor and taste from the water. Some of them also come with a carbon filter. However, if you go with a machine that uses a water filter, remember that you will be required to replace them at regular intervals.
