Delicious java

Brewing the perfect cup of coffee is a science. From the bean you choose to the temperature of the water, every part of the process affects the end result. But that shouldn’t mean you need a PhD to figure out which coffee machine to buy. With thousands of products available, each offering slightly different features, it can be pretty difficult to find the right machine. So, to help you make the all-important purchase, we’ve made a list of the top-rated coffee machines on Amazon.

Things to consider

While the aim of this guide is to simplify your search for the perfect brew, there are some things you need to consider.

Which to choose?

Firstly, do you want a machine with a built-in grinder? Experts say that freshly ground coffee tastes better, but you may prefer the instant gratification that pods can provide. If you want to save money, it could be worth putting in the effort to grind your coffee by hand.

The end goal

Cost is obviously something to consider. However, you shouldn’t just look at the MSRP of your preferred machine. Using two coffee pods each day for five years will add $2000 to the overall price. In contrast, you can get the same number of cups from a ground coffee machine for just $500.

If your budget is tight, we also recommend avoiding the big brand names. Just as Apple charges a premium for laptops, Lavazza and DeLonghi have their own premium. But then, they do make great coffee.

With grinder

Without further ado, let’s check out the bean-to-cup options.
