All You Need To Know About Coffee Machines



For a nation that ranks among the top eighth consumer of coffee, coffee machines are a fairly good investment.

Although this beverage is loved in the United States, one of the biggest issues with it was the time it consumed to be made. Sixty percent of the coffee consumed in the United States is taken in the morning, and that is an absolute rush hour for all. Therefore, just like for everything else, a better alternative was sought for this problem as well – a coffee machine.

Coffee Makers

Coffee machines or coffee makers are one of most common products that are found in the homes of America. These are basically machines that are used for brewing coffee. This was quite a breakthrough in the market because it provided the convenience coffee drinkers desperately wanted.

Advantages of a Coffee Machine

There are several advantages that you get by using a personal coffee maker.

  • To start off, you can get your coffee brewed for you while you get ready for work.
  • Different coffee makers offer different kinds of features that include things like pre-timers, auto-off, brewing options, single-cup or a pot, etc. All you have to do is set the settings and let the coffee maker take care of the rest.
  • Some coffee makers also allow you the option to make several other beverages like, iced coffee, tea, hot chocolate etc. You can make them your one-stop-shop for these drinks.

Types of Coffee Makers

There are several different types of coffee machines that are available in the market.

Capsule Coffee Makers

This is one of the relatively newer types of coffee makers. Not the most common choice of people, this coffee maker comes with pre-packed capsules that are inserted in the machine to make coffee. Although capsule coffee makers are fairly easier when it comes to the cleaning, they bound you to the use of capsules only provided by the machine’s manufacturer.

Filter Coffee makers

One of the most common types of coffee makers is the filter coffee maker. They heat the cold water that you pour in it from the top, and then drip it in the coffee jug below. This coffee jug remains heated while on the designated plate of the coffee maker.

Espresso Maker

Another type of coffee machine is the pump espresso maker. Its machine is controlled by a thermostat to heat water. As the water reaches its required temperature, it gets poured into the ground coffee which then flows out of the tap below. This machine also has a separate compartment for adding milk in case of making a cappuccino.

Percolators

This is one of the oldest types of coffee machines out there. However, since there are several contemporary types and forms available today, not many people opt for percolators anymore. In it, you pour the ground coffee in a chamber over the boiling water. The boiling water passes through this chamber before going back down. The problem with percolators was that they almost always over-extracted the coffee, which ultimately led to a bitter tasting coffee.
