Best Coffee Machine Review

Coffee has been around since the 16th century and 500 years later , the humble coffee bean has spawned a huge range of different coffee-based drinks. If you’re a fan of Cappuccino, Macchiato, Espresso, or just plain-old Filter Coffee, there’s a machine available that will make you the perfect coffee you desire every time.

We have some great Coffee machines to look at below, but first you need to ask yourself, do you want a manual Espresso machine for a professional coffee-shop experience or a Filter machine that provides a jug of hot coffee as required or the simplicity of a coffee pod or capsule machine?

If you’re not quite sure what you’re after, our personal choice top coffee machine buying guide below will help you sort your Latte from your Espresso.

There are four main types of coffee machines, each of which are suited to different needs:

Manual espresso machines: 

Manual espresso machines are as elegant as they are capable and are classics for a reason. This design still offers the most control over every aspect of the Espresso experience. Fine tune your perfect espresso shot through grind, tamp, temperature, steam pressure and length of extraction.

They feature a boiler, steam pressure gauge, portafilter and a manual lever for controlling espresso extraction. Is it the beauty of the design that first catches your eye or the interplay the finely crafted parts that captivates your attention? You will be challenged and rewarded with a manual Espresso machine in your home. Similar to what you see in Coffee shops, is the best choice. The downside is that you’ll need to manually grind and add the Coffee, Steam your own Milk and repeat the process for every cup. Our recommended choice would have to be the De’Longhi Sculpture ECZ351BK for its great looks and flexibility.

Filter coffee machines

If you just want plain and simple Coffee to fill a mug, or want to be able to make enough Coffee for several people at once, a filter coffee machine is a great choice. Filter Coffee machines are ideal for making larger quantities of freshly brewed Coffee. The water slowly drips through a container holding the ground Coffee, using either a permanent or paper filter. As the water flows through, it absorbs the flavours and aromas of the Coffee.
