Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat coffee maker is best for me?
AThat's a big question! If you want large amounts of simple, strong coffee, then a French Press is your best bet. An espresso maker serves up a small amount of potent coffee, while a combi machine will create a large array of Italian drinks (cappucinnos, lattes, macchiatos, etc). If you was a the simplest operation, most pod coffee machines offer 1-press coffee making without the fuss.
QWhat coffee makers are best for a single person?
AMost pod coffee machines dispense a single cup at a time, making them excellent for a solo use. A French Press will make a couple of cups at a time, and keep it warm while you drink. Lastly espresso machines usually dispense one or two cups at a time, making them a good choice for a lone coffee drinker.
QWhat coffee makers are best for groups/companies?
ASmall companies would best benefit from a large French Press or a drip coffee machine, since they can make 8-15 cups of coffee at a single time. For large companies - or those with money to burn - a combi machine allows you to very quickly make a wide variety of coffees of all types. However they are very expensive and require regular maintenance.
QWhat are 'coffee pods'?
AA coffee pod is a pre-packaged 'serving' of coffee grounds, which are placed into a special coffee machine which automatically makes the coffee. They are extremely easy to use, and normally give perfectly adequate drinks. However they generate an awful lot of wastage, and there are many questions of their long-term impact on the environment, given that many are non-recyclable.
QWhat is a steam pipe?
AA steam pipe is a special addition for espresso machines - it channels hot steam from the boiler through a thin pipe. This is primarily used for heating and frothing milk for Italian coffee drinks such as cappuccinos.

Automated Coffee Maker Buying Guide

Coffee makers work by percolating hot water slowly through ground coffee beans, picking up the flavour of the beans and turning the water into delicious coffee! There are numerous different types of coffee machines on the market, running the gamut from simple pots and mechanical presses to fully automatic electronic machines that not only brew coffee, but also froth milk to create lattes and cappuccinos. Below is an outline of the major different types of coffee makers:

Resource ID 78

Automatic ("bean-to-cup") Coffee Makers

These machines automate the entire coffee-making procedure, from grinding the beans and brewing the coffee to frothing the milk and adding it to the coffee. While they are some of the most expensive coffee makers on the market, they are also the most fully-featured, allowing consumers to create most different types of coffee shop-style drinks at the press of a button.

All different types of coffee machine have a cup capacity, which is the amount of coffee they can dispense at once. Many espresso machines only brew and serve a single cup at a time, while a filter coffee machine or French press can have the capacity to brew 3,6 or even 12 cups of coffee at once.

Extras

Some more advanced coffee machines - especially the automatic bean-to-cup machines, may have alternate modes for making other hot drinks. These can include hot chocolate, cold milk, or dispensing hot water for making tea. While not the prime function of a coffee maker, there are a nice extra to have built in to the machine.

Finally, certain brands of coffee makers may have extra functions to aid coffee making. These can include built-in grinders so the beans are always freshly ground, or a milk frother (also known as a steam pipe) to allow you to froth milk for cappuccinos and macchiatos. Finally, some coffee makers have timers, so that you can program your coffee to start brewing for a specific time. These are often found in filter coffee machines - these can be set to start percolating early in the morning, so that coffee is ready for when you wake up!
