Looking For an Espresso Coffee Machine Or a Filter Coffee Maker?


It takes some time to look for the best coffee machine and then best coffee too that will give you that rich and satisfying taste to match that mouth watering aroma we get from coffee being ground or fresh coffee being brewed.

Buy a good coffee machine, there are many to choose from so you should ensure that you do some research before you buy, get yourself up to date with the benefits and the features for each of them.

With so many different coffee makers available there are difficult choices to make but keep it in perspective, for domestic use you really don’t need the all “bells and whistles” machines that you’ll find in commercial kitchens and coffee bars.

Obviously you will have cost in mind and it is important too that you consider the space you have available to accommodate your choice, OK so the bigger the machine the more cups it can produce with one fill of the reservoir but no point in buying that huge machine if it’s not going to fit in your kitchen.

Another choice you are going to have to make is whether you prefer a filter coffee maker with a jug that keeps the coffee warm by sitting on a hotplate or an espresso coffee machine

With an espresso machine there are inbuilt thermostats for controlling the water and steam pressures so that your espresso or cappuccino is always at the perfect temperature.

Espresso machines offer a swivel jet milk frother that gives cappuccino, latte or any other frothy milk beverage that frothy creamy looking top.

They have removable water tanks you can fill right from the sink and keeping the tank itself clean is really easy a removable drip tray also lends itself to easy, hassle-free, cleaning too.

Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage and is brewed by forcing hot water under pressure through the finely ground coffee., espresso often has a thicker consistency than the ordinary filter coffee.

Because of the pressurized brewing process, all of the flavors and chemicals in a typical cup of espresso coffee will be very concentrated and because of this espresso is used as the base for other coffee drinks, such as lattes, cappuccino, macchiato and mochas.

Of course it depends on your own individual taste but if you want some form of recommendation my advice and I love coffee, would be to go for the espresso maker.

Once you are decided on the machine you want to buy remember that the coffee that you buy for the filter coffee machine may not be right for an espresso machine.

You’ll need finely ground coffee for the best espresso so again you will need to search around the stores and find finely ground coffee together with the strength of ground coffee or coffee bean that you prefer.

So look around and see what you can find, there are some really great machines on the market today, my preference? Well I’m hung up on the DeLonghi and Gaggia range of machines and you can find more information on these as well as some good advice on coffee in general at my website, goodcoffeeclub.com
