Capsule coffee makers are very popular at the moment. However, buying coffee pods is expensive and wasteful. Non-recyclable capsules can be a problem for the environment. You should instead choose a machine compatible with either ground coffee or coffee beans.
A filter machine is the perfect choice if you like American-style coffee and want to make your own coffee. A filter machine makes a great pot of black coffee by adding water to ground coffee beans and pouring it into a jug. For larger households, they can make multiple cups at once.
A bean-to-cup machine is a great option for those with a tight budget. This machine grinds whole beans and makes fresh coffee at home.
They usually include a steam whisk to froth the milk. Although they are more expensive than a filter machine these machines can make great coffees, including cappuccinos and flat whites.
What are my considerations when purchasing a coffee maker?
Ask yourself what budget you have and what types of coffee you enjoy before you spend your hard earned money on a coffee maker. A filter coffee machine is the best option if you are looking to save money and still enjoy simple black coffee.
You can have all the features here of a more expensive machine, but you will still be able to enjoy your favorite coffee tastes. You should also consider how much space your home has: coffee machine sizes can vary greatly so be sure to take this into consideration before you spend a lot.
We’ve reviewed a variety of non-capsule coffee makers. So whether you like an Americano, an espresso, or a latte we have the machine for you. We tested models from all budgets, rated them on ease-of-use, price, appearance, and most importantly, their ability makes great coffee.
