Everything You Need to Know About Buying a Coffee Maker and Why You Should You Get One


If you are like me, you probably can’t start your day without having your first cup of coffee when you wake up. There’s nothing like the wonderful aroma of a freshly made brew. And it’s even more special when you add in your favourite flavourings which can be from extracts or natural. These include coconut oil, salt, butter, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla or nuts. The extract version is a nutrition free, sugarless way to liven up your drink.

Coffee is made when water flows through ground beans in a cone-shaped filter to filter out the grinds, and into your cup, mug or other favourite drink container.

Although this is basically the process in coffee makers, different machines produce different results. The temperature, time the beans are immersed in water, the technique of agitating or stirring and how the water is applied, all make a difference in the flavour.

There are various types of coffee makers, from drip coffee, espresso, single or multiple cup machines. Then there are the non-electric coffee makers that brew your coffee over a fire or left to brew overnight cold or at room temperature. The prices for these coffee makers vary from being very affordable to the very expensive models.

Is it worth buying a coffee machine for the home?

This question depends on whether you are a coffee lover, drink lots of coffee, love to have your coffee in a special way, or if you just have an occasional cup of coffee every now and then. Coffee drinkers know that getting a cup of their favourite drink outside can be a bit costly. And if you have more than a cup a day or buy a coffee every day, the costs can be quite high annually compared to owning a coffee maker and brewing your own coffee at home.

Purchasing the right machine can make you a better quality coffee than that served at some of your usual coffee haunts. You can tweak your coffee to suit your special taste. Best of all, you will be helping the environment by not getting your coffee in those one-time-use plastic cups.

Before you make your purchase, there are certain things you should know.

What to Look for in a Coffee Maker?

There are lots of different coffee makers that you can choose from.

For those of you who have a liking for a certain taste, a normal bean-to-cup machine would be your best choice. You can decide how you want your coffee to turn out. But these days even the automatic models can let you play with the settings for coffee you can be satisfied with.

However, if you are always rushing in the mornings, an automatic coffee maker will get you your coffee quicker. You may want to consider a machine that is programmable so that your coffee will be waiting for you when you wake up.
