While choosing the right Coffee Maker for our home, start with the question: “How do we prefer to take the Coffee?” This may sound simple; actually, the type of coffee drinker largely determines the type of coffee maker one selects for his home. After selecting our options, we can evaluate how likely a coffee maker will fulfill our wishes of getting a cost-saving alternative to the convenient choice maker or having it as just our hobby.
Here are the lists of different types of coffee makers available to choose from.
- Single-Serve Coffee Makers
When you are looking for single-serve coffee maker, please make sure that it is suitable for individuals for brewing coffee in a single cup. More often, this type of maker will also be able to brew for small coffee pods, K-Cups, coffee grounds, or all of the above types available.
As it can brew coffee in K-Cups, it will be easier to brew coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or cappuccino for a single person. Also, the maker will allow us to brew a cup by skipping the grinding process, spooning out the coffee grounds, and boiling water with a kettle. Simply put the K-Cup into the machine, push a button and the coffee will be directly poured into the mug or travel cup.
- Espresso Machines
Many of us don’t know that espresso is not a roasting or blending method for coffee making. It is simply a method of preparation of coffee in which pressurized hot water is forced through coffee grounds to produce a concentrated coffee drink. An espresso machine is designed to do just that by forcing hot water through a fine bed of coffee grounds.
There will be several variations in espresso coffee makers ranging from semi-automatic, and super-auto maker, but its essence will remain the same. For all espresso lovers, high-end espresso machines are also available.
- Drip Coffee Makers
A drip coffee maker consists of a water holder, a lid covering the reservoir, filter, carafe, and on-off switch. To brew a cup of coffee with this type of maker, simply pour water into the holder, put coffee grounds into the filter-basket, place this basket into the brewing chamber, and finally press the button.
Hot water will drain the filter basket containing coffee, causing coffee to drip into the carafe, finally reaching the cup. Best of all, this type of coffee maker usually comes with programmable features that make brewing more convenient.
- French Press Coffee Makers
The French Press is the most basic coffee maker available in the market, but surprisingly it’s the most popular among coffee drinkers. That’s because it’s said to brew one of the most delicious cups of coffee. Consisting mainly of a filter screen, plunger & carafe, it brews coffee in just a few steps.
Finally, after going through the topic, once our choices have been attached to our considerations, obviously we can pick the winning option. Because the right type of coffee maker can make a huge difference to our coffee-making and drinking experience.
