Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world, more than half the American population enjoy a cup of joe. You can probably apply that some number of coffee drinkers in dozens of other countries as well. The sheer number of coffee drinkers is probably why there are so many options when it comes to coffee makers. Choosing the right coffee maker can seem impossible when presented with all those choices. So let’s go over what makes the perfect coffee maker for you.
Automatic Drip Machines
This coffee maker is probably the most common coffee maker you will find on the market. It is simple and efficient, easy to operate and they are found in homes and restaurants all over the world. You add water, put in the filter with some coffee and a few minutes later you have a perfectly brewed pot of coffee. There are plenty of models with a timer so the coffee is ready before your feet hit the floor in the morning.
Single Cup Coffee Makers
These are the Keurig and Nespresso machines that are growing in popularity. They work a lot like the automatic drip machines, except they use prepackaged pods of coffee. You can make coffee one cup at a time and it takes less than a minute, there are also hundreds of different blends and flavors available and that’s one of the reasons these machines are growing in popularity.
Espresso machines used to be only something you would find in coffee shops or very luxurious kitchens. Not so anymore. The serious coffee drinker wants more than just a regular cup of coffee and the demand for domestic espresso machines grew. Now these machines are affordable and you can have the luxury of espresso or cappuccino right in your own home. Some of these machines come with some pretty cool features like built in water filters and they are self-cleaning. Here is how the home machines work.
Using a French press will take longer and there is far more preparation involved than any of the other methods but for the coffee aficionado they love it. You can make a much stronger and more flavorful cup of coffee than you can with n automatic machine. French presses can be used camping or as they don’t need electricity, just coffee and hot water.
These are just some of the methods and coffee makers you have to choose from when you are looking to make that perfect cup of coffee at home. It really depends on your preferences and which is more convenient for you.
